    2015 subaru wrx 0-60

    How can i improve my 0-60 times in my new wrx? Today i went to a runway to test my 0-60 times and the best i got was 6.1 sec. With traction control off What is the best and safest way to launch? I reved it to 4k let out clutch just before engagement point then floored it as i let off clutch fast. It was a,smooth launch but my tires didint spin and i feel like i couldve done better considering the wrxs 0-60 is around 5 secs. The temperature was around 90f. Is this normal or should i be in the low 5s range? Also i had 3 people in the car including myself

    First off, drive alone if you are after numbers. 4 people?! 6 secs is a blessing.

    Does 2 extra people really affect performance that much? Also does the heat have any affect on performance? Will the turbo work better during the winter?

    It will potentially produce more power.

    Those two people weigh something, I'm sure. Weight is what ruins a vehicle's performance; acceleration, cornering and braking too. It's exactly the reason some high performance cars (read "high-priced") incorporate carbon fiber into their design. Lose weight and all aspects of your car's handling will improve. Calculate the combined weight of you and your two passengers and then see what percentage that is of your car's kerb weight. You might be surprised how much it is.

    Thanks for the reply, ive always known weight affected performance but not that much. Since these cars are light, and 4 cylinder, weight would affect performance more than say a srt8 pickup truck because it weighs alot more to begin with. Wrx curb is around 3,300 with 2 people in the car that weigh lets say 175 thats ALMOst 10%.

    Weight reduction are mods a lot of people do. When I go to the 1/4 mile track in my daily driver, everything comes out including pens, change, floor mats, spare tire, jack + whatever else is in the car. Next time you go, leave those people out and your times will be better.
