    Hi guys, just wondering what's the best way people have been getting their car off the line to get the best 0-60? I found the best way is leaving traction on and holding the brakes whilst pressing the accelerator, although don't like the noise this makes; best I got was a 5.45 using iPhone gps not entirely sure if 100% accurate (ps: this was conducted at Brands Hatch)

    All runs I have recorded ranged from 5.5 to 5.9using a VBOX with a fuel tank of fuel.

    Only as a few members have mentioned about traction issues with the Cupra, so I'm wondering what others have been getting and more to the point if anyone is running different tires like the PSS's or cup 2 tires.

    And 5.5 seems more accurate that what I got with the standard rubber

    My times were with the bridgestones, now have PSS's. I'm not fussed about 0-60 to be fair, I have not done a standing start in 9 months.

    Well on the road neither do I, although it'll be interesting to see an improvement with the different tires

    They have much better traction than the bridgestones in the wet and dry to be fair.

    Can't VCDS be used to record and log various speed-speed times?

    You can indeed :)

    I done it on my old 184 but still to try it with the cupra!

    Easiest if someone else is in the car to hold the laptop etc.

    Just bury the throttle and I'm gone.......that might have something to do with the fact it's 4wd.........and not a Leon....

    6.9s in my 1.8tsi, measured using Racelogic Performance Box. Wouldn't trust the accuracy of a phone app.

    Yes, Unitronic stage1+... serious traction issues [:@] at this stage (much) better tyres are a "must".

    Why not?
    People who buy cupras like performance. People who like performance like to get as much as they can and compare against other like minded people.


    are you expecting us to all keep guessing? :confused:
