Do bare in mind you are comparing a 1.6 turbo to some much bigger engines with turbos and even cars with huge engines in comparison. Really does say how well the little 1.6 lump is doing even more.
Very slow???? Are you SURE??? You DO remember it's 1600cc don't you??8 Seconds 60-100mph for a highly modified S/C Mini is v.slow!!? uzzled:
A standard Mk5 Golf GTI which is ~1400kg and 197bhp will do 8sec 60-100mph or even less on VPower.
You sound a little confused.Home - Specsavers Opticians - Designer Glasses, Sunglasses, Contact Lenses & Eyecare.
Canned_heat.......THE MINI IS GOING 60-130MPH NOT 100MPH!!!
It gets to 100mph in about 4.5secs if you watch!
Your dads Golf does it in 8.5secs in that vid.
Still think the Mini is 'v.slow'?
My apologies, I thought we were talking about the Mini in the youtube video whose 60-130mph time is coincidentally 8 secs! (thats where I got 0-130mph from)You sound a little confused.
We're talking about the 'heavily modified S/C Mini here', as mentioned in the original post... The 'test' as mentioned was 60-100mph and the quoted time was 8 sec.
Where on earth did you get 60-130mph from? I only posted the vid of my Dad's car to prove that 8sec (and it is 8 sec if you count properly) from 60-100 was slow.
As much as admire your highly scientific methods to debunk the stats ,i think they're based on manufacturers figures so, if anything, they're likey to be a bit generous! I'd love to be proven wrong tho if anyone knows different?honestly all those times u posted.....they must b in 5th gear or something because they is no way, not a chance that some of those cars take that long to do it in optimum gear!!! ive had a look at that site and it just seems....wrong!
