Default Dakota Sport 0-60 Time

Me and a buddy just went out and timed my 0-60 in the Dakota Sport in the sig. We did 3 runs with a stopwatch to test it. The average was 10 seconds flat.

Is that any good? lol I really don't know what to shoot for.

Also, for poops and giggles, we clocked my 60-100 time, too. I drove at 60 for a while, then punched it. Not sure if that's how you're supposed to do it. The time for that was 20.2 seconds. Again, not sure if that's any good.

Thanks,
pow3rtr1p

Generally most sports cars get from 0-60mph in around 7secs, under 7 secs is quite fast, high performance cars do 0-0 in usually less the 5secs, and really fast cars like the lambo can do it in under 4 secs. The fastest 0-60 time I have seen is a nissan skyline that was tuned by Jun, it does 0-60 in like 2.6 secs. Generally the times go either 0-60 or 0-100, people generally dont care about the 60-100 time. Another example is the audi rs 4 does 0-60 in 4.8 secs and 0-100 in around 12 seconds or something. My truck right now does 0-60 in a little under 9 secs.

10 seconds is pretty good for a truck. My friend's 1977 Nova with a poorly running 4 cylinder did it in 17 second when we tested it. Me: "You need to floor it." Him: "I am flooring it."
