My Lag is around 10 -11 secs I would imagine. I deffo know it aint that fast, my Mrs will sometimes tell me to do an overtaking manoeuvre to get past a slow driver, prob is the Lag can't deal with it...... or more to the point I don't feel confident overtaking in it cos it takes a dogs age to pick up speed.

My previous Mazda would do 0 - 60 in a little over 7.5 secs, 100 would be coming up in just 10 to 11, quarter mile approx 15 secs . Loved the close ratio box on that! Only prob was on the motorways it would rev quite high, 80 was close to 5k rpm if I remember rightly.

Next I'll be getting a bike though, 125 to start so 0 - 60 will be approx half hour to an hour! couple of years and I'll be on the 600+ cc bikes, Then 0 - 60 will be fun

On Motorways you'd be more interesed in your 30 - 70 times. This is where the engines torque comes into play so all the dervs out there should have failry good times as apposed to petrol equivalents .
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
