Thinking out loud... doesn't the faffing around getting upto stall speed in order to shave half a gnats left bollock off the 0-60 time render the exercise somewhat pointless... ::)

Lol it is more than a gnats gonad hence why we are talking about it and it appears everyone's doing it lol

Still undecided as to whether I'll give it a crack.

So any of you crazy cats got a video of accelerating using the stall approach? Specifically in a stock 2.5 would be amazing. But any omega really.

Or would anyone who does this already be prepared to make a quick vid of it?

Would be real nice to compare book figures against times using this method

And just to ask. . . As I have to turn the traction control off is there a possibility that I could lose control? Like captain slow did when they did an American road trip? (I'll try and find a link lol)

You've done it now. TheBoy takes the word "launch" a little too literally. Best buy him a spare sump plug. :-X
