Z Proto: The next z reveal


Recommended Posts

Based on what I saw I assumed it would be taken as a compliment.  Oh well.

The funny part is I'm not really interested in the Proto-Z or the 0-60 times, or the physics, or the math.  I was just making an indirect comment about the hijacking.  Thread-jacking is rude.

Ya, I wondered about that. I had originally specified the wheel velocity incorrectly (I think I low balled the RPMs to 5500). When I calculated better top wheel velocity using the redline of 6600 RPMs, the velocities changed but I failed to update the time spent in each gear. I have recomputed and here is what I got:

62% in 1st and 38% in 2nd…

Average acceleration of 4.6868

Resulting in a 0-60 time of 4.01s

This seems better.

Thanks for bringing to my attention. Cheerz!

Is your yellow Z the one with a Les Collins engine?
