Ford AU legit did a calculation because 0.04s is to the 1/4 mile from the flat 400 meters, and 6.97*.955 (a mix of .95 and .96) = 6.65 rounded to the nearest .05, also 6.65/.955 = 6.963 but rounded up to 6.97

6.35 to 60 mph, 14.8 flat to the 1/4 mile — American style (with a 1' rollout subtracted).
