MARK 99STS Posted February 15, 2004 Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 Can you determine 0-60mph time based on the info from track timeslip? Info as follows: 60' ......2.178 330'.....6.051 1/8.......9.177 mph.....79.35 1000....11.861 1/4......14.15 mph.....98.14 MARK 99STS TURBOCHARGED Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Jim in Phoenix Posted February 15, 2004 Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 There is no way to extrapolate 0-60 from that data. They are very good times if that is your 99 STS! I bet it was a cool day when you ran. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

tjtjwdad Posted February 15, 2004 Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 You get almost 14 flat with a 99 STS. Watch ya' done to it? Jim White Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Marika Posted February 15, 2004 Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 5,280 feet = 1 mile. Calculator used: Hewlett Packard 48GX Calculating feet per second: 2.178 seconds to cover 60 feet = 27.5482093664 ft/s 6.051 seconds to cover 330 feet = 54.5364402578 ft/s 9.177 seconds to cover 660 feet = 71.9189277542 ft/s 11.861 seconds to cover 1,000 feet = 84.309923278 ft/s 14.15 seconds to cover 1,320 feet = 93.2862190813 ft/s Calculating Miles per Hour from Feet Per Second: 27.5482093664 ft/s = 18.7828700225 mph 54.5364402578 ft/s = 37.1839365394 mph 71.9189277542 ft/s = 49.0356325597 mph 84.309923278 ft/s = 57.4840385986 mph 93.2862190813 ft/s = 63.6042402827 mph These are the "raw numbers" only. If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

MARK 99STS Posted February 15, 2004 Author Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 Yes those are the numbers for my 99 STS. Yes it was a cool day. 41F, low humidity and high barometric pressure.(ideal conditions).

Here's some additional numbers using that same Hewlett Packard 48GX Calculator: It took you 2.178 seconds to reach the 60 foot mark from the starting line it took you 3.873 seconds to travel the next 270 feet to the 330 foot mark it took you 3.126 seconds to travel the next 330 feet to the 660 foot mark it took you 2.684 seconds to travel the next 340 feet to the 1,000 foot mark it took you 2.289 seconds to travel the final 320 feet to the 1,320 foot mark Here's how these intermediate numbers look: 0 - 60 feet in 2.178 seconds = 18.7828700225 mph the next 270 feet in 3.873 seconds = 47.5318640782 mph the next 330 feet in 3.126 seconds = 71.9769673705 mph the next 340 feet in 2.684 seconds = 86.3704105132 mph the last 320 feet in 2.289 seconds = 95.3175264682 mph it took 9.177 seconds to reach 71.9769673705 mph at 6.051 seconds you reached 47.5318640782 mph so somewhere between 6 and I would guess, 8 or 7.5 seconds, you reached the 60 mph mark. Given the fact that I don't have additional numbers to work with, that's about as accurate as I can calculate for you. Now go outside and play If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.

TDK Posted February 15, 2004 Report Share Posted February 15, 2004 Here is a link to a site the used a relatively sime cal to determine 0-60 times. http://www.cars-cars-cars.org/0-60-Times-Calculator.htm You will need the car weight in kilograms and the brake horsepower. Please excuse the fact the they did not have Caddys. Their text follows: But can you calculate 0-60 times based on horsepower and weight Well, having decided that in theory it's not possible we're reminded of the engineer's adage - In theory, practice and theory are the same thing, but in practice they're not. We analysed the manufacturer's 0-60 times for a range of popular sports cars and found that in practice the quoted 0-60 times are easily and quickly calculated to the nearest second by dividing the weight of the car in Kg (Kilogrammes) by the cars' maximum brake horse power. Further analysis revealed that the more precise formula for most cars is:- weight of car in kilogrammes 0-60 time = --------------------------- maximum bhp of car * 0.9 OK, it's not a precise science, but it does work (most of the time), So for example, take the current Toyota MR2 which weighs in at 975Kg and has a maximum power of 138bhp. Using our formula we calculate the car's 0-60 time to be 7.9 seconds, and the quoted figure is 8.0. Further analysis suggested that this tended to be true across quite a wide range of cars, and where it wasn't true, it was possible to explain why the car was achieving better than, or worse than figures. Using this theory, we accurately predicted the figures for many cars to within 1/10th of a second. Add power to leave problems behind. Most braking is just - poor planning.

Jim in Phoenix Posted February 16, 2004 Report Share Posted February 16, 2004 There is no way to extrapolate 0-60 from that data. They are very good times if that is your 99 STS! I bet it was a cool day when you ran. Like I said! Marika is just wasting everybody's time with that data. But I would bet you are very close to 60 at the 330 mark, so say 6.05 seconds and no one will argue with you. My time slips at Firebird also give a speed at the 330' mark and I was right at 60 but with a slower times of 6.36 to 6.44 seconds And it was over 100 degrees ambient.
