    What was that site that worked out your expected 0-60 1/4mile etc from stats like weight and power?

    Wasn't there also a site that allowed you to choose a selection of cars (of varying power outputs) and effectively drag race them all across a 1/4 mile?

    tehe, hohoho.

    I'm serisouly thinking of selling the rusty old 5 gtt and buying a cheap Fiat Cinquecento sporting arbath, putting a 85bhp 1242 16v Fire engine in with a wee tune. That's about 95bhp and 720kg, looks good for an 8sec 0-60.

    according to that site i should be able to hit 100 in less than 10 seconds. In this weather i'd be lucky to do it in 10 minutes! I think there should be a dropdown box for "type of driver" like:

    Nigel Mansell
    Gabriele Tarquini
    white van man
    milkman
    noreen of driving school
    Stevie Wonder

    Puts my project car down as 4.8 seconds to sixty, if I can get it light as I reckon I can.

    Awesome :D

    i'd say it's a pretty accurate time to 60, add in driver and fuel weight etc and it's a bit more resonable (820kg, 95bhp, just below 9seconds) ;) My friends turbo cinq has about 120bhp and is as quick as my 5 with 150odd bhp. They seem to have a very low rolling resistance, small so a low drag coeficient and a std 55bhp cinq will do over 100mph. Not saying they are amazing or anything, just very funny wee cars.
