Default How do you test 0-60 without breaking the law?

So I bought the very fine Torque Pro app at Google play and have been enjoying it.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...l.torque&hl=en

Given traffic etc I was only able to make a single 0-60 run but I forgot to turn off traction control and I forgot to put it in drive sport mode. It recorded a 0-60 time of 5.8 sec but I think it can get around 5.2 from what I've read.

I'm thinking about getting up real early and try to catch a traffic light and blast out from there.

The nice thing about Torque is it's always looking for the best quarter mile, 0-60 time etc so there are no buttons to press or anything.

It will also record video while overlaying the gauges of your choice but the video is a bit out of sync with the data.

Here is a video someone posted on how it can record video while logging data.

Find a 55MPH road, and do it. If you're that worried about going over the speed limit, go to a drag strip.

Drag strip isn't free and I'm not sure if one is around. Roads around here are busy that's why I'll try to go out early some weekend. I'll probably end up hitting a damn deer.

They claim the added traction overcame the extra weight. Since the car has 1,300 miles on it I decided to play around with it a bit.

If you aren't spinning out or anything should be ok. I would read through your state codes for "Exhibition" type of stuff. Around here, is exhibition of speed or something along those lines.

Otherwise, around these parts. There is no law against simply going from 0 to the speed limit quickly.

Just keep in mind that Car Magazine editors aren't afraid to really punish a car to get the best 0-60 time. That means near red-lining the thing and dropping the clutch - if it is AWD.

If you plan on owning the car for awhile, probably not the best thing to get every millisecond out of it.

You don't. I believe it's called contest of speed in some states and treated as street racing. If the cop wants to be a dick about it.

edit: what VW said. I should read more first.

flashlight fridays. funny though, there's no use of flashlights (at least these days.)

****in drag strip is right next to 38D though and it's easy to mix up with the runway if you're unfamiliar with the area lol.

I'm annoyed that my RX-7 doesn't have OBDII, I guess I don't have much reason for getting this
