I have a video which I will post soon but It seems like my 0-60 might be a little slow

Coming around the corner at about 12mph and mashed it to see how it is I was looking at about 6-7 seconds. Granted I have no guarantee in what gear I'm in but that still seems a bit slow for what I've been hearing people run

You need a Dragy or that other gps-based device. Otherwise it's meaningless.

What you described in no way is how you record a 0-60 time.

If you're coming around a corner, a few things could be coming into play that are slowing you down.

The Electronic Stability Control might be kicking in, and also what driving mode you were using.

Try it in a straight line and in Sport Mode on dry roads, let us know if there's a diff.

The 0-60 for my ST when it was stock was ~5.3 sec in good DA. With the FP tune, my best is 4.7 sec.

Yeahh i kinda lost my video too. Luckily the weather has been good lately and I think i can get a good vid today. I think part of my problem was that starting at around 8mph I would probably be in 2nd or 3rd gear

Was using sport mode but didnt disable any traction, should I disable both the trac and advance trac?

How do you measure 0-60 if you're starting at 8mph.This is measuring 8-60 starting in second or 3 gear down shifting then going it will obviously be slower. Yes you should disable tract and adv tract. Disable the tact stuff push the brake in hard and hit the skinny pedal til youre at about 2500 rpm and lift off the brake. You'll run 5.3-5.5 as advertised.

Looks about right considering the video length is 6 seconds. You ran in the 5’s

Best way to fix that problem is located here.

And it is on sale, so the gf/wife can't complain.
