Default 3000gt 0-60

it gets me really mad when people say that the 3000gt is slow. the n/a anyways. my 1993 is definitly faster then most other cars when i compare them. all these sites that say it runs a 8.5 0-60 cant be accurate. on the same site they have the stealth es listed at 7.1

8.5 sounds about right for an ATX.
The ES was probably a MTX, and the ES is probably the lightest of the NA's.

Sure, for a TT version. I've read times anywhere between 5.2 and 5.9 over the years.

The N/A would def have a better 0 - 60 if it were RWD. Solid mounts and an LSD could help get your time down though.

i find that it's not really the launch that makes the car slow but the lack of power as you approach 6000rpm. a test pipe could help that a little, but its not smog leagal.

well i tested the 8.5sec theory with a friend and my ipod and i got a 7.3 0-60. now i know that's not the most accurate way to do it but i wudn't be 1.2sec off! and that was with my automatic 3000gt.
