0-62 times for manual & MTA; how do they do it?
« on: August 27, 2015, 01:18:27 pm »
So I've been thinking... In the MTA gearbox car, you can't build up the revs before you move off, but you can in the manual version of course, so when they did the 0-62mph test for each version do you reckon they did it the same for each (i.e. from nothing)?

If not then from a non-standing start sounds like the MTA variant would accelerate quicker perhaps due to the faster gear changes than a human can make?

I may be talking absolute rubbish, so forgive me if I am, just intrigued!

    Not sure I understand your point. You can't calculate 0-62 without both cars being stationary at the start. They cannot be moving otherwise they would be going more than zero mph.

    Sorry if I've misunderstood you Adam.

    Sorry I haven't explained it properly! What I mean is that from the manual you can do a proper 'launch' but you can't with the MTA - so do they do that?

    MTA is slower to 100 largely due to launch.

    Gear changes are then faster with the MTA in my experience. While it would be fun to have some launch control, I don't have any scenarios either track or street where 0 - 100 matters so I don't worry.

    My current mods have sacrificed low end torque for high end power as well, which works well for me but I'm sure wouldn't help my time to 100.
