    Can we use 3rd gear? 4th would be noticably slower I'd think, and 3rd on the 5mt will get us up to 95 or so. What timing method were the VW guys using?

    there's a 45-60 in 3rd gear also page....

    timing method...some were measured by the ECU (via vag-com and a laptop), G-Tech...or watch.

    45-60 is 2nd gear though. The tdi's must be geared much shorter (which doesn't suprise me really).

    Yea, it doesent seem to be a viable means of comparison since the cars are geared quite differently. I mean i could show you a 45-60 in SECOND...but it would be like 2.5s or less.

    I just tried it today

    60-90 mph 4th gear - about 6.5-7 sec. (done twice)

    60-90 mph 3rd gear - about 6 sec.

    Since I didn't have a G-Tech or stopwatch, I did the old thousand 1, thousand 2 method. Not very accurate, but it gives you a rough estimate

    I did 70-100 mph in 5th gear one time...with PlatinumWRX in the passenger seat...took a while...got to close to 110 then hit traffic again on I-95 in Maryland
