Re: Official 0-60 & 1/4 Mile Times 2020 Corvette...
I have a Challenger Scat Pack (392) and it has launch control, and while I've never used it other than playing around, from my experience in it, and my 5.7 Charger that I had with it, on the street it is useless (for pure accel times). You can control the car better yourself by vastly reducing power, but it is easier to just hammer down and let the car do the work instead of sitting in a smoke show, but you have to practice and choose your RPM limit before hand.
I assume... That with real tires on the strip, it may help a lot, but I bet good experienced drivers with practice (not me!) on the strip will still be better off controlling the throttle on their own. Now cars like the Demon are a different beast entirely with line lock, trans brake, torque reserve, all kinds of ECM voodoo going on to help the launch, but I'll never be in one of those let alone drive one in anger.
FWIW, my car should be able to run mid 12s at mid 110s MPH, and mid 4s 0-60. I assume the only number of those 3 that I can realistically expect to easily achieve is the MPH number, that is pure HP, not launching skill.
The 1320s are the same car, same drivetrain, but with some Demon launch voodoo, and drag spec tires... and they shave off over a half second, but MPH is basically the same.
You guys that can repeatedly launch your cars CONSISTENTLY with wheels in the air truly impress me.
