Bruce brought up some very good points about 0 whatever-60 runs. I consider them rather meaningless. As far as sheer acceleration it should be 0-100 MPH, 1/4 mile and/or 0-125 MPH.

As much as I thought I liked the idea of a GTR I realize I'd rather buy a pre-owned .1 turbo w/a stick for less money. My previous .1 turbo was my all time second favorite car; the .2 GT3 is the favorite.
I find the 0-100 a better measure because it minimizes all the little things Bruce points out and stuff like traction issues higher HP and rear wheel drive cars have.
