12 a way to slove 0 60 times problem

it come to my mind a great idea so every one could add a car time no matter what the time is 0 to 60 or to 62

lets take the ZR1 for example when someone add the 0 to 100 km/h time as a 0 to 60 witch is 3.2s

10.3s(to200) - 3.2s (to60) = 7.1s

10.3s(to200) - 3.4s (to62) = 6.9s

so what the car lost in 0 to 62s back as an advantage in the 100km/h to 200km/h time

and the compare tool will do a fair comparison if the 100km/h to 160km/h or 200km/h box is there...

clearly unimportant in the high way and some open roads. and for those your gonna need 100km/h to 200km/h more than 0 to 200kmh for example the 2009 gt3 is faster than both 997 911 turbo and the gtr when it comes to autobahn.
and don't forget that 0to100km/h is a difference and a part of the total performance benchmark.

people should realize how unimportant 0-60mph or 0-100km/h is in the real world. Ask yourself, how many times have you set off with your car at the maximum possible on public roads lately??

In my eyes

0-100mph or 0-160km/h is a much better acceleration performance number for normal cars up to entry level sport cars.

and 0-125mph or 0-200km/h for high perfromance sport cars...

and 0-155mph or 0-250km/h for super sport cars

at that numbers the differents become clearly visible and at that speeds the different in gearing has not such a big impact like it has at 0-60 or 0-100km/h....

the objective is to get uk/usa numbers compared to the rest of the world numbers...
so r&track are comparing between uk/usa numbers it self and you can't compare it to Auto Zeitung magazine numbers for exemple

when you compare a car 0to96km/h to a car 0to100km/h

that's unfair for the second car

but when you compare a car 96to160km/h to a car 100to160km/h

that's unfair for the first car

then we get two wrong numbers so you let the compare tool do it for you so you cant see wrongs numbers then you get just the compare points because its correct..

1 foot rollout could make a change in the car 1/4 mile time & speed plus you can always get different numbers from the speed trap, its better to compare cars by time rather than speed (unless top speed).

Then just figure the 60-100 time in the Road & Track Road Test Summary

its about comparing cars 0 to 100km/h no matter what if some magazines uses 1 foot rollout or just a 0 to 96 km/h (60mph) or both, the site viewer still can find out the truth by making the car lose what the magazine give it for free so it does make a fair comparison.

Comparing trap speed will give you the same result. I use to look at the R&t Road Test Summary and figure the 60-100 times from 0-60 and 0-100 times, but the trap speed in the 1/4 mile will give the same comparison so I stopped.

Good idea, but drag racers have done a more efficient comparison using trap speed in the 1/4 mile which indicates how fast the car is and the time indicates how fast the driver is. ;)

And i agree completely with Wads, we should have both 0-100kmh and 0-60mph, that way people would know that there is a difference, not much, by it is a difference. and maybe adding a 0-250kmp/150mph.

I've always been in favour of having 0-62 AND 0-60mph listed in the car data pages...... it has two main advantages.....

we can allow lots of US/UK 0-60 data to be added even if we already have 0-62 info for a car.

Having both figures listed will educate people that they are NOT THE SAME!!!!

[code:1:9fb277947f]we cannot have 0-60 times in 0-62 boxes. That just makes the spec sheet unaccurate.[/code:1:9fb277947f]

you can make it look correct by making the two available in the same box but this time not the way you did for the top speed box

when someone is about to add a car he will found right next to the box two options one for 60(96) and the other for 62(~100) but what the others will see is gonna be something like this

0-[color=blue:9fb277947f]60 mph[/color:9fb277947f] - [color=darkred:9fb277947f]100 km/h[/color:9fb277947f] [color=blue:9fb277947f]3.2[/color:9fb277947f] seconds

always the script will decide witch is the color of the time and at the same time the compare tool will do the job right...

there is already many 0 to 60(with 1 foot rollout) time posted as 0 to 100km/h

Hmm, don't quite get the idea, how it would make it alright to add 0-60 mph time in 0-100 km/h box.

As far as I understand, your suggestion is to add 100-200 discipline in comparison pages to decrease the effect of incorrectly entered 0-100 km/h time.

Still, we cannot have 0-60 times in 0-62 boxes. That just makes the spec sheet unaccurate.
