    1/4 mile time?

    Any word on this yet? If it can do 100mph in 5 seconds, should do pretty good in the 1/4 mile. Be perfect for the 1/8th if you could get it to hook.

    Well thanks for linking me to my other thread, but the link in the other thread doesn't answer either of my questions. I know it can do 100 in less than 5 seconds when unlocked, and 60 in 2.3 seconds, but I want to know how fast it will do the 1/4 mile.

    If my math is correct..... 1/4 mile should come in 11.458 seconds and 1/8 mile should come in 6.96 seconds. Those times are both based on a 0-100 acceleration of 4.92 seconds, and a top speed of 100 mph. The X0-1 is supposed to have a top speed "over 100mph," so the times may be slightly quicker...but not much. For example, if the top speed is 102mph, the 1/4 mile time would drop to approximately 11.33 seconds.

    Not too shabby. I wouldn't mind whooping on some ricers at the drag strip with it. Get laughed at until you smoke em. Heck, it'll even take a Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, and some corvettes.

    Yeah it'll whoop almost any street car showing up at the drags. Some street cars (stock) are capable of running faster times than that, but they are usually severely limited by their drivers. Haha.

    With an 11.4 quarter the only stock street cars in the XO-1s range would be super cars, or special edition muscle cars like the GT500, ZR6, or ZL1.

    That fun fact alone catapults the X0-1 to the top of my list.
