I thought Nissan were supposed to be quite good when it comes to 0-60 times? I read somewhere that they put up figures that you should be able to attain, not the absolute best anyone could do? The official time was 5 point something, but a lot of car mag tests put it at 4.8.

That said, you probably need to wait for a warm summer day for better traction in order to get into the 5's!

I had a little play and I am now consistently getting 5.9's and my best is 5.5. I have not been giving it many revs at all off the line and just planting my foot down once the car is rolling and my foot is off the clutch.

There is still room for improvement if I can get the throttle / clutch balance right off the line but I am getting better!

Doing 2000 RPM or so when you come off the clutch?

Yes, probably about 2k but maybe less then full-beans once the clutch has engaged.
