    BEST WRX VS THE WORLD POST EVER.


    from what ive read cheetahs cannot sustain the 60mph speed for long. I dont know that anyone has timed their 1/4 but i dbout its too quick bc they max out at 60 and cant sustain it very long.

    a quick google search should find info, though i dbout those stats have been recorded. 0-60 they are probably faster, 1/4 they probably are not.

    Haha, great question!

    I found a site which says 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. http://www.nsnaturalist.org/nsnatura...etah/page1.asp

    As far as the 1/4 mile, it won't be that impressive. At 60mph (the cheetah's top speed), it takes 15 seconds to go 1/4 mile so this would be the absolute best time a cheetah could get if it got a running start. Put it this way, it is definitely between 15 and 18.4@60mph!

    "The cheetah is capable of speed up to 72 mph (114 km/h) and can maintain this speed over an average prey chase of 3.5 miles. At full speed the cheetah can cover a distance of 25 ft (8 m) in a single stride. " - Cheetah Conservation in Southern Africa. Trade Environment Database (TED). American University, Washington, DC.






    "From a standing start the Cheetah can reach 45 mph (20 m/s) in 2 seconds." - Macmillan, Dianne M. Cheetahs. Minneapolis, MN: Carolhoda, 1997.

    and if you want to continue the car vs sportbike arguments...


    go race a hayabusa:

    ""The peregrine falcon is perhaps the fastest animal on earth. In a stoop, or dive, the peregrine has been clocked at speeds of over 180 miles per hour.""

    "The cheetah, the fastest land animal on earth, can sprint at speeds of about 60 to 70 miles per hour. Furthermore, it can accelerate to this pace in just a step or two. Its body is uniquely built for speed. Their small heads offer little wind resistance, while their exceptionally long legs allow them to take huge strides. During sprints, the cheetah spine acts like a giant spring -- storing energy that can be released in explosive surges. The cheetah also has an enlarged heart, set of lungs, and liver that help deliver bursts of oxygen and energy. Along with its sharp claws, specially ridged foot pads help to provide greater traction. Hence, it can both run hast and maneuver well. The cheetah has limited endurance (about a quarter of a mile), however, and the sprint quickly leads to near exhaustion. Consequently, the cheetah can only hunt effectively in open country where there is enough natural cover for stalking. Cheetahs begin by stalking prey for a few seconds or up to several hours. When the prey is within 100 feet, the chase begins. About half of all chases end with the prey being suffocated by a throat bite. Adult cheetahs eat an average of six pounds of meat per day, but they drink infrequently--once in every four to ten days. Its speed allows the cheetah to prey upon animals much larger than itself, but generally cheetahs prey on medium-sized animals such as gazelles and impala."

    From what I can gather, 0-60 MPH in around 2-3 seconds, endurance of about 1/4 mile, no need for frequent maintenance (fluids needed only every 4-10 days), and preys on Chevy Impalas....
