P.S. I think it is time you bought the sotware and had some fun. I guarantee you will learn a lot and enjoy it! However, as you can see on my posts here about the M-DCT times it can sometimes be very trick/subtle to get a good prediction. Some engineering background is a very good idea but certainly not required. Cheers.

THAT'S WHY I HIGHLIGHTED ALL THREE DATA POINTS TO BEGIN WITH. EVEN IN MY ORIGINAL POST IT WAS ALREADY HIGHLIGHTED. AND I DID'NT NEED ENGINEERING BACKGROUND. BTW, I HAD A FEELING YOU WHERE OF SOME ENGINEERING BACKGROUND, YOU REMIND ME OF MY COUSIN AND UNCLE. HERE IT IS AGAIN, NOT JUST 0-60 BUT 0-100 AND 1/4 MILE AS WELL. DO YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE NOW.
spec: C&D/40k/CarTest
0-60= 4.5/ 4.8/ 4.84
0-100= 11.2/ 12.0/ 11.91
1/4mile = 13.1/ 13.4/ 13.5
