i saw this on another forum

bad news someone stole it but his 0-60 was 1.61 WOW a lot of sport cars don't get that the car is similar although lighter than the fleet but that is a damn good time i'd be satisfied with a 3 second 0-60 that's my goal for 2005.

Thats not possible.

thats what i thought who knows maybe a misprint

i don't or can't say its totally factual but i don't know how dragstrips etc. work but still the thought of it is still really cool

i think that's what it means i may be wrong he did have a lot invested into it though

I dont know alot about 0-60 times but I know that car would have to be a lot faster than high 12s in the quarter to get those kind of numbers.

100 shot on the lt1? I don't see why not...

That's 60 foot time...time it takes to cover 60 feet at the track. Someone with track experience could probably explain it better, but it's an indication of how well the car launched.

Regardless, that's a damn good 60' time.

The ' after the 60 means it's the 60 foot time, and like Andrew said it's indicative of how the car launched. That's a good 60' time for a car running that 1/4 time because it's a big, torquey V8. If it had lost traction or if the stall wasn't low enough on the convertor that number would be bigger.

now i get it so its the time it took to travel 60 feet from the start which is still really good in my opinion
