0-60 times

What kind of 0-60 mph times are you guys getting?
What is the best launching procedure?
What are you using to measure 0-60 times?

I tried leaving from a idle and got turbo lag. :-(
I have read that you brake torque to 2500 rpm and count to 3. GO!
One magazine got a 3.3 going up to 3500 rpm *tires started to spin

Have never timed myself but i would have to believe that one magazine. These cars are wicked quick, the other day i was merging onto the fwy and before i knew it i was doing over 100 mph within what seemed like seconds. Also i have never had turbo lag with this car.

Brake Boosting to around 2800 - 3000 RPM.
Dragy is the measuring tool of choice these days I believe.


Which Magazine article mentions holding the brake to 3500?


Temperature is a big factor as we are stalling against a really tight converter with a small engine and Relatively Large turbos.
Cold air helps to build boost but hurts traction.


*** I would avoid doing multiples of these brake boosted launches back to back without knowing your Transmission Temp as this puts substantial heat into the torque converter.


I am amazed that the Factory Alfa programming even allows this.


I wish they had also given us 2WD (for burnouts) and a line lock at the flip of a switch.
Maybe a Tuner is working on something like that as we speak. :-)

if you want to find optimal launch rpm, you need to do back to back runs to eliminate road/temp variations - and should look at your 0-20 times as that removes your 1st shift from the equation.
get that down and then optimal rpm for shift points.

but as noted above, not too back to back as heat is a mechanical enemy. and then there's cumulative stress on a lot of parts.

0-60 Zero to Sixty

With Near perfect conditions this morning I wanted to give it another try.


0-60 - 3.55
0-60 - 3.36 With industry standard 1ft Rollout
1/4 Mile 11.83
1/8 Mile 7.56


Supercar Numbers, and Drag Racing is not even its strength. You gotta Love these things!


I also did some data logging and testing through the OBD2 port and found that it was making between 18 and 20 PSIG of Peak Boost.
I read somewhere that they were making 30PSI when I was researching them but I was pretty sure that had to be BS.

I use Dragy.
I stalled to 2000 rpm and got a 3.6 sec 0-60 mph
I tried 2500 and the tires started to spin.
I have Turbo Lag below 2500 rpms.
Car and Driver launched at 3500 rpm to get 3.3
Road & Track also got 3.3
The torque converter is not tight compared to the old days when you were lucky to get to 1000 rpm.

Great times!
35 psi max boost is what is advertised. Not sure if they achieve that though.

Have you ever floored it from a idle? Mine hardly moves until 2500 rpm. Serious Turbo Lag!
Then hold on!

a little tire spin isn't a bad thing - and 3.6 is pretty darn quick, especially for a roomy 4 door road car.

not quite Fiat territory, but these were quite the Fiats haha

At least I was able to get the 3.6 that Alfa Romeo advertises.
I really want the 3.3 though. Is Race mode the one to use?

I tried 2500 rpm and the tires started to break traction and the Stelvio wanted to move forward before I let off the brake pedal.
Maybe I needed to apply more brake pressure.
I have serious Turbo Lag below 2500 rpms. After that...Hold on!
