How did you guys get a 3.44 time for the 0-60 in the 2012 GT-R? I saw this in the 2012 buyers guide.

The car ran 11.2 in the quarter. It probably has to do with roll out. 3.4 seconds is pretty fast.

at first glance that looks off but take a look at this

i think this is fairly accurate

1.9 second 60' time = 43.0 mph @60' = 4.6 second 0-60 time
1.8 second 60' time = 45.5 mph @60' = 4.0 second 0-60 time
1.7 second 60' time = 48.1 mph @60' = 3.4 second 0-60 time
1.6 second 60' time = 51.1 mph @60' = 2.9 second 0-60 time

so for instance i have ran 1.7 60fts in the car from having alot of spin off the line and still acheived 11.2 1/4's

but at the same time 1.6 -1.65 60s are documented on this car and ive seen a 1.64 out of mine..... and that puts it back under 3 secs...so the car is certainly capable of 2.9 0-60s but its really all about the surface and the conditions that day....

I have run a # of my cars with a vbox at the track. The #'s you listed above are not accurate at all for any of them (CL65, CTS-V, and GT-R). You can't generalize a 0-60 mph time based solely on a 60' time...there are way too many variables.
