Had some spare time today, so with a mate thought we would hand.time some acceleration times, of course all under the legal limit.

50-70 5th gear 7.1

50-70 4th gear 5.7

30-70 2nd gear 5.7, (might have been better had I changed up before 70mph, as it was right on the limiter)

On a flat stretch of road, 2 up, full tank of fuel

Didnt think these were too bad, of course doesnt allow for speedo error.

Anyone else tried this !

Only did the 50-70 in 5th and 4th and got 5.0 and 4.0 dead both times. I had full tank, plus enough luggage and tools and 5x5 litres of oil and water to offset a passenger. It takes a second for the boost to kick in as when I'm holding 50 the boost is reading -0.75. It seems flat at first but pulls strong as the boost hits 1.6 bar. 70-90 would be detached a bit quicker I reckon as the motor really wants to starts to move at 70. The 50% methanol injection confirms my seat of pants feeling thet the car nearly accelerates as fast in 5th as it used to in 4th.
