I reckon we might need more info to answer this one....
I take it you mean 0-60kmh times, not 60 foot times? Like Motor or Wheels 0-60kmh times, and how they do it? I dont think they would do it with a passenger with a stop watch and looking at the speedo, they use a correvit for that kind of thing as far as I know, for track times etc. And I think they take cars to drags strips say at Calder, or to airport runways and things like that.
Im really not sure though, Im sure someone here will know.
