Below 9.5s
15░C or maybe a little below.
265/40-17, 235/45-17 although I don't see how that would make any difference.
1.25 bar and falling with rpm.
Stock K26/8
Captured with LM-1 datalogging (don't trust speedos, mine showed 220 km/h when the LM-1 showed rpm coinciding with 200 km/h).

Tomas

BTW. Many posts, few numbers.

By the way, that test was done in summer 2004 (early August to be exact), and carried out at night as well.

That is one of the many reasons why i don't go on full boost during the day at all in summer season, winter is very forgiving with a 25C high during the day and 10C during the night (what do you expect from a desert?).

I always thought the 60-100mph 3rd gear test was the best.

For any reason the AF wasnt perfect during the run. Will check this more tomorrow.

I used the km/h @ the blitz power meter. This is tuned with a GPS so it shows pretty exact numbers I changed the boost down a bit cause the AF, but I could be pending between 18/19psi.

The VR stage 3 is strong! You should know by now

Thomas, please tell me where the hell you found a stretch to do this test without fear of 6months in prison and 2 years as a pedestrian.
No way Siv is 55kg. More like 39kg

He was in Spain on vacation!

I should've timed my Cab two weekends ago when I went chasing some 911s at highways speeds. With the top down, acceleration was probably shot to he##, but it sure was fun!

Accelerated through 100 kph, started clock, 3rd and 4th gear, stopped clock at 200 kph, accurate speedo (minor issue, anyway)
between 7 and 7.5 sec; made two passes which were close to the same time
9 degrees C.
3000 lb. includes half tank gas plus two occupants
tire size does not matter
PUMP GAS
top speed: 300 kph

As already stated, heads up comparo is probably best. But, this is better than 1/4 mile and dyno.
