Sigss, a car's 0-60 times and its 1/4 mile times are not linear measurements. In fact, they are far from it. You do run 0-60 on the way to the 1/4 mile mark, but a lot can happen after that point. Also, they are measuring two differnt things. One tests the amount of time it takes to spring between two points and the other tests the amount of time needed to reach a certain speed. I could construct a modified vehicle that could run a wicked 0-60 (using effective gearing, traction, and weight displacement) but then have it drop off by the 1/4, and visa versa. If you use a transmission with a (for example) 3.40:1 first gear, a 2.80:1 second gear, and a 3.73:1 rear end gear combined with suspension parts that are optimized for launching from a dead stop (50/50 ratio rear shocks, 90/10 front struts, soft springs), and as much weight focused twards the rear of the car as possible you will run a great 0-60 with the right engine combination, but the car will not necessarily run a comparitve 1/4 mile unless it can use the gearing, suspension, engine's powerband, ect., to optimize "up top" acceleration. There are a lot of examples, even in production cars, where one car could be quicker 0-60 but slower in the 1/4 compared to another car.
I'll dump my Mustang for an IS...if and when they EVER make an IS coupe!
