Re: 0-60 times for a 280ZX
Most data on the 70's and 80's Z's are bad. Zhome.com has a bunch of specs from mags back in the day when these cars were new but the drivers must have sucked or the testing conditions did. Most of them say on average the 70-83 Z non turbo will do 0-60 in 9 seconds and 1/4 mile in 17-18 seconds. Thats crap. And like szlash said there are some 10 and 11 second runs for the 0-60. From what I've seen and heard from others the non turbo 70-83 will range in the low 8's to the mid 9's for 0-60. For the 1/4 mile they should run low to high 16's. Of course there are exceptions and other factors to account especially since most of our cars aren't new anymore.
