0-60 tips?

Share some tips on how to get the quickest 0-60 run.
I'm kinda new to driving and don't know much on little tricks to get up there quick as you can. I get about 8-10 seconds in my 02 GT. I know it could be better.

Auto or manual? But I would suggest gears, tune and tires.

Wow.

I really don't mean to preach at you. I really don't... but...

If you're 17, the only place you should EVER worry yourself with 0-60 times is on the track. Keep it off the road. You're still young enough to take the time and learn to drive, to drive well and safely, and not worry about how fast you can get it off of the line.

Truthfully, there are bigger challenges you should master. Learn the clutch, and if you're driving an automatic, take every chance you get to learn standard. Test yourself on hill starts, parallel parking on hills, and basically anything that gives you the sensation to know where your friction point is, how much throttle you need and how much power you can put down without blowing it as wheel spin.

Maybe you're a born driver, and maybe you have a support network to teach you what you want to know. But if you're not, or don't have that, then take the time to become a good DAILY DRIVER before you worry about blasting off the line, clipping apexes and powerslides.

And remember...

KEEP IT OFF OF THE PUBLIC STREETS!

You wanna race, take it to the track. You wanna share the road, be the best, most curtious and defensive driver you can, then you'll find a world of help to get you along that path.

But don't go looking for help on being a better street racer because the only people who'll give you the tips you want will be the kind of people you don't want to get those tips from.

Sorry about the preach.

I've just had enough of what happens when young guys with something to prove take to the public streets and behave as if the roads were their own private race track.

Good luck...

... and be safe.

I shift mine at redline ONLY when racing. Most of your power from stock is like 4500- redline. If you shift higher it is like driving a compleatly different car.

Step on the brake. And gas it a little to 2k rpm and then release the brake and punch it on the gas
