In Reply to: GREG...did you get the rims(more)....0-60 posted by ADA///M on July 31, 2000 at 15:24:19:


Hi Greg,
Was owndering if you got the rims yet? This is Adam G. Also my car runs solid low to mid 6's zero to sixty. Stock my car ran 6.9-7.0. I have an 88 M3. I never thought it was running great, but i think your cars should be running in the 6's easy. I put in a Jim C chip, K&N filter. I ran 6.4 a month ago using a G-Tech Pro. I could've done better than that. You shouldn't be much slower than your old type r. Well the bigger rims on my car and the Jim C ship have enabled my to reach 60 in 2nd gear, but I think you should be able to break into the 6's easily.
Thanks
ADA///M
let me know if the rims got there

They're going on the car today. Thanks for sending them over. I'll send you an email about it this evening.

I read that you got the A520s... let me know how you find them. I was running them on an Impreza RS before (165hp AWD).

RE: the Gtech runs. I've *heard* that it's best used to calculate relative changes in performance. What I mean is that the actual 0-60 timing may not be 100% accurate, although the Gtech should be accurate to itself in order to figure out performance changes after modifications. I'll have to get a good seat of the pants feel for it once the M is finally set up (this evening).

I know a guy who was getting sub 5 second 0-60 times (like 4.3 or so) from his Gtech in a turbocharged Impreza (he had maybe 260hp from it at the time). It sounded a little quick compared to other's with the same setup (maybe 4.9 seconds at best), so that was one time where what I was told about the Gtech might've been correct.

Greg.
