Hi, first, this boy-racing at the stoplight kinda sux, but well ;) you can beat all those bmw over 50mph for sure. but if you want to get close to these manual times, you have to a) have good tires b) rev up the engine to around 2300 rpm and really let the clutch go back in as fast as the spring will let it go c) shift at 5500 rpm and keep your shifting time including clutch-slashing under 0.5 seconds needless to say this is not good, rather dangerous to both car and driver. bye simon
