i thought the only people who talked about 0-60 times where zitty little gimps with saxos/clios etc

in the real world its about three things, torque, handling and testicular size

and on the subject of big engines in little things we put a 2.8 V6 cologne engine in my mates scimitar SS1 years ago, now that was quick
another guy i knew had a rover V8 in a triumph dolomite

Oh well, if I must

A mate of mine has a mini pick-up

Mounted in the cargo area is a Judd 3.5 litre V8 F1 engine, connected to a March/Leyton House transmission driving the rear wheels

Even so it is one hell of a ride. Must be said, I timed it once... it did take its 10 seconds from standstill WITHOUT sports mode turned on...

How are 0-60 times worked out? - using any gear to get to 60 at its absolute fastest I would presume?

I will clarify here though that I do not race.
Sounds good to me if you leave them bmw's and merc's you know what bmw stands for bloody mobile wan#ers lol next time you see one burn them off for me, sefrane's seem to have a lot of torque witch helps I believe.
