How come 0-60 is 5.7 seconds if 1/4 mile sounds like 0-60 in 3.6~3.8 ?

i know that it is called 'fastestlaps' for a reason and i agree that maybe it should only be cars with laptimes, but often when trying to find out interesting information about a car i always come here because i know most of the time the info is correct (apart from those ****ing fake-ies) and the laptimes are usually a bonus of what i am looking for, so whilst just laptimes would be great, the information on the website about almost all cars is fantastic, so dont change it!

@BR2 Yeah interestingly FL shares your opinion, but he knows getting rid of 2000 cars wouldn't make people happy or be easy.

BR2  9y ago

@Jeff B, your right, you cant have laptimes without cars, But whats the point in a LAPTIME database when the cars dont have laptimes?

And if those legendary cars dont have laptimes, doesnt matter what car, they shouldnt be on this site, wheter its a One Off Ferrari, or a Veyron GrandSport, or an Ultimate Aero, Legendary, Record setting, Awesomeness, sexy, a car without a Lap, shouldnt be here, thas like renting a Porno for its dialogue.....

But of course, this is only My personal belief and input, FL Can do what he likes..

Although this is a laptimes website, you can't have laptimes without cars.
Not just laptimes are paid attention to on this site, for instance many people compare cars just by their acceleration times, if they have laptimes or not.
And how can you deny people from adding legendary cars to a database? You guys say this is a laptime database, but it really isn't, if it was then cars wouldn't have their own pages.
At its heart FL is a car website, but of course this is just my opinion.

@Super8, Even if they dont test there cars round a circuit, it shouldnt matter, nor should the car be here without one, this is a Laptimes database, not a fast car data base as it is becoming, hordes of cars have ben coming in without a lap, and that shouldnt happen when this site is about laptimes.

All these old American cars your adding have had 40yrs to get laps, and havent, so they shouldnt be here, just like the other 1000s of cars ppl have added, This site is for LAPS, not just for Interesting cars, again, Its FastestLaps.Com, Not FastestCars.Com..

But, after all, this is fastestlaps, is not supposed to be a car database.

Super8  9y ago

@ BR2 : The problem is not every magazine or manufacture test their car in circuit for a laptimes. They just test their car in general like safety.
Ps. If you want to see old American Muscle try to see Fifth Gear. There's a lap times for 1969 Dodge Charger R/T and 1974 Ford Gran Torino Sport.

Your right, it is my opinion, It may never happen, but the fact is, this LAPTIME site is getting Flooded with cars that have NO Laps, 3000+ cars...and how many have laps?..

Whats the point in having a Laptime database...And almost all the cars dont have a single lap?

Thas like making an Apple pie...with no apples..

Yes, If the car that a User adds, that DOESNT have a lap, a Simple delte should be made, I Think the Right thing should be to Delete Every car WITHOUT a LapTime, If people find a Laptime they can add the car, or if they find a laptime from a car that was deleted, They can just re add the car. This site is getting filled with cars without a single laptime, having a car database is great, N i Love cars in general, but is that what this site is? No, its for LapTimes. You could also have the option of Not being able to add a car UNLESS it has a LapTime. 3,153 Cars, and How Many have a Single Laptime?.. That or Change the sites name..

Thats your opinion, it will never happen

@BR2 That's a good observation. And I am not too happy about that either... But what can I do? Delete car pages that people add?

People should take a look at site rules before they go ahead and add a carpage.

It is not a rule, but it's recommended to add a carpage only if it has or will defininitely have laptimes in future.

@Super8 looks good. Very special car. The displacement is off a bit, it should be 7 liters. :)
