60-100 times



  Fiesta RS Turbo & Pug 206
Last nite thought i would take the time out to do a 60mph-100mph test

People told me that 172mk2 doneit in 11.97 secs, i thought this was to long

so my time was............................... 10.0sec

not bad i thought from a standard car 2 up .

the road was flat as they come and the outside temp was 13

what do ya recon then , good or bad

surley it can't be that longs... surley not


thats what i thought, i thought it would be like 5-6 secs .

i was in 3rd in 60 @ around 4000rpm then floored it and into 4th at 7000rpm then 100mph 10seconds later , it did feel quick , u know somedays where ya car doesnt feel as quick as some days but i was happy with how it felt

ok, has anyone got the autocar/evo offical times for the 182? then we can put this to bed.

tbh, i'll go with evo/autocar over any figures given by a bloke in a car with a stopwatch.

Course chap, im not having a go in the slightest, im just saying speedo'sare not acurate and nor are stop watches, so unless you have pro timing equipment then it cannot be acurate

true mate, we all tend to talk speedo speed.

but on trhe policeman side of thingas no, but thats why overtaking a policeman on the motorway at a shown 80-85mph doesnt get you pulled, because your not really going that speed

That would make the 0-100 time about 12s LOL!

Stopwatch timings = Gay, imo. 1 second can make all the difference and it can take you that to start/stop the damn thing

Probably about right imo....the second quicker could be anything.....about 2mph diff on speedo from actual speed at 100 and also reaction time stopping the stopwatch could easily make it a second quicker

ive never dared overtaking a policeman at that speed lol when i pass them on m1 they always going about speedo 70 and i cruse past at a speedo indicated 73mph lol

In my 172 if I use the cruise control and set it to 70mph the speedo is reading about 72-73mph. Which is more accurate?

Will have to check it against GPS to get a proper idea I guess.

As for cruising past the police at 80-85. That's a bit much to tell the truth. Anything over 75 and you're risking a pull.

Most police cars don't have calibrated speedo's but the traffic and area response vehicle's do so on a motorway they should know what speed they're going an you're going without thinking about it.

The speedos are over-reading by about 5-6mph at 100mph (so speedo says 100, true speed is 94/95), if my friends 05 plate 'Extreme' is anything to go by - ok it's only a 1.2, but it has the same speedo setup, and for true speed working off a TomTom GPS that had plenty of time to update as it was accelerating so slowly.

Although it may have had slightly different total wheel and tyre size, which may put the speedo more, or less out than a 1*2 depending on which way they were out (bigger or smaller). It's legal for speedos to over-read by up to 10% iirc (can anyone comfirm that % figure?), it's illegal to have an under-reading speedo.

4 seconds in the vee. PURE RAPID.


Pfff, slow as a geriatric chav paying the bills, the 197 warps there, 0.001 seconds - it was less but I couldn't obtain any suitable timing gear that measured any less than that.
