Cool How can I hit the stock 0-60 time in real life?

I just bought a near brand new 2013 (4k miles). I test drove it without a sales guy and tested out the 0-60 feature on the Track Apps but I didn't get very good results. Keep in mind that I have never really driven any kind of fast car and while I am really ****in' excited about this car I don't have any idea what I'm doing.
So it was a 50 mph empty road. It was straight but was kind of wavy up and down. I don't want to say bumpy but the road dipped then came up up a little. All I really did was go from a complete stop and tried flooring it from the start as well as easing into 1st/2nd.


Anyway, the best time I got 0-60 was 7.6s. How fast should I be able to get with everything stock? I'm pretty sure traction control is on by default too, and I didn't change anything. I did do it in S mode and also once in D though.


Does traction control make that much of a difference? Is it the road not being totally flat? Do I just need better skill at accelerating?


One other question. Where do you guys test yours? I googled a few different tracks near me but they all require $25-35 to race. Is there anywhere you can just go to test?

With track control on, wavy road, up and down, and you are expecting to get a good result?

The hot temperature will also make it significantly worse, due to the decreased density of oxygen.

The tracks near me is about $20 to race also. I wouldn't expect amazing numbers with a stock 2013 V6. It all comes with modding. Plus, other things can affect the performance. The road, above sea level, temperature, etc.

For instance. People always say stock 11-14 V6s run 14-14.5 in the 1/2 mile. Well in TX, they run about 15 seconds. No matter what. Even with my mods, I was barely able to break 14 seconds. The heat alone is a big factor.

When you say its $20 to race, what does that cover? Can you just run a straightaway by yourself? Is it just once? I just want to practice some 0-60 runs, don't care about competing against anyone else.

What does your v6 do 0-60 in Texas?

His 0-60 now is slow. In a few months she will fly due to some much needed boost. . Jealous much.

I will have to look back at my time slips. My best 1/4 mile time so far was 13.87 and I hit ~103 mph.

The $20 gets you in for the entire night usually. You can run by yourself or next to someone. Doesn't matter. Usually someone will run with you cuz remember, those people want to test their car also. Doesn't matter with who.

The SA Raceway is a 1/4 mile strip.

I would say an avg 0 - 60 with a stock V6 would be in the low 6's.
Of course, many magazines got anywhere from the low 5's to the high 6's.
The stock perf pack helps.
Traction control shouldn't make a difference if your tires don't break loose.

Texas here. Race track is 39ft above sea level, but Density Altitude is rarely below +2000 ft !! I still manage 13.7-14.1@101-103+mph on a decent run with no power shifting, and a 2.1-2.2 60ft ? Your car should be faster? My mods are factory 3.31, shorty headers, Bama tune, FRPP axle back, tires, and CAI ...

On topic, you will need a stick shift, and a well prepped track with negative or close DA to hit advertised 0-60 numbers lol. They either adjust for altitude ,and/ or run the best version of a car possible and take the best time from multiple runs.
I say tune it and hit the track. If your sixty Foot gets to 2.0-2.1 or less, mod more and repeat lol!

I've only timed my 0-60 via the track app maybe 15-20 times, but I constantly get anywhere from 5.7-6.1. I have a 6MT so with more practice launching I feel I can get that down to hopefully the low 5's. Car has 2.73's, and is stock other than Magnaflow Street catback exhaust.

Could be, but that was my first track visit.....ever. Will be going again in a few days.
