DIY Stopwatch tests!!



  320d M Sport


Hmm, i know what youre all thinking but theres got to be some degree of accuracy in it?

Every time i try a run with my trusty 8310 I get similar times (provided i dont spin it). So, what i want to know is, all you 1/4 milers etc, i bet u did the stopwatch test, if so how did it compare to the actual time.

BTW- i been gettin between 6.6 and 7.0 to 60 + 16.9 to 17.2 to 100--- see not much in it each time i do it!!??
 


Its ok for rough times I guess. Speedo errors and reaction time have to be accomodated for though I guess!

I was also doing this a couple of weeks ago in mine...

Using the stopwatch & speedo method (in the 306) I was getting very similar readings to you for 0-60, but slightly faster for 0-100 at low/mid 16s! :eek:



Anyway, I then borrowed a performance meter thingy (cant remember the model), which was like a crap version of an AP-22 and it would only do 0-60 & summat else, but not 0-100, so couldnt do quite what I wanted.

But... the best I got was 0-60 in 6.64secs! ;)



Need to get hold of a better one, hopefully an AP-22 (again) and see how the 0-60 compares and get some 0-100 times in too.

p.s. Can anyone remember when I borrowed the AP-22 off Captain Slarty and timed the mk1 172, mk2 172, mk1 V6, Cup & CTR that day?!

Cannot find the times anywhere?! :oops:



If you happen to have them noted down, then met me know please! ;)

Wow, i didnt realise that the mk1 was beaten by the mk2, and not by a small margin I might add... maybe the mark1 was one of the underpowered ones that seem to come out the factory now and again.

although i think the mk2 is geared better to combat the extra weight.

This thread caused a LOT of arguments last time...

But, that mk1 we used is my mates and it was never as quick as it could/should be, however the mk2 was rapid so cars at either end of the scale.

As for gearing, yes the mk2 is geared shorter and better IMO.

the best times I have had in 0-60 times is a consistant 6.7 but that is with either loadsa wheelspin or having the clutch fully out then planting it..

Yes so i noticed when I read a bit of that thread.. still there is no denying the figures the mk2 is superior in everyway

To MK1 OWNERS:
(for the love of god im only joking mk1 owners please chill)

To Everyone ELSE:
(the above statement to mk1 owners is a lie and not a joke)

Yeah, very difficult to get it just right, so theres no (or minimal wheelspin) or if you get it to bog down slightly, although in a mk2 the "fly by wire" throttle will help there.

I found that after a bit of practice I could get it right every time...

as ive sed before all the north west members are welcome to borrow my ap-22 for a small fee of course hehe

we need a day out of testing with a few cars but if u wanna borrow it for a week of testing ur welcome to come down and borrow it off me

as long as u bring it back of course, u need a week anyway to mess about with it to get an average result anyway as the times can vary depending on the factors u put in to the unit
