Default SERIOUS QUESTION LOL

Ok I dont get it lol. I drive the pt cruiser convertable (love this car probably my favorite car that ive ever owned) Anyway I get looks all the time when driving and it is honestly a fun sporty little car. When I read online about the pt cruisers all I hear is how bad of a car they are but I have two a hatch and a vert and I keep maintainence up on both. Never had any problema out of them. Also I heard that there slow but I can state otherwise raced mine 3 times (leagally) and while I can say acceleration needs improvement I did outrun a 5.0 mustang a couple times but got slammed by a supercharged challenger but not by much so there not slow. So why do the cruisers receive so much hate online

The words "fast" and "quick" are often mixed up by everyone.

Quick is drag racing and fast is road track.

Sorry to say the PT is neither "quick" or "Fast".

In stock unadjust PCM there is both engine and speed limiters.
The gear ratio makes for a "terrible launch without experience and slicks this by itself makes the PT not very quick.

However there is a small window of roll on acceleration that if you are likely to get the drop on a "equal" competitor. But if you stay in the throttle you will be passed when there power level comes on.

Beating a Five-0 is really not saying to much about the performance level of either car. I am sure that if you did do it legally and examine your time slip you will see why the victory was with the PT Cruiser.

Don't know if everyone will be bale to see this but it's the list of times people have been running over at PT Crew. We're not talking stock on most of these but I'd sure put a bunch of them in the "Fast" and "Quick" segment.

PTCrew.com - Fastest Times List

PLEEZZZZ...you did not read my response very well did you?

If you noticed the thread that CREWZIN posted you can see what the averag PT cruiser will do in a 1/4 mile.

Also I have been running professionally NHRA running in the S/G division 7.90-9.90 for over 30 years as well occasional street acceleration tester comparing with other vehicles (Not legal in any state). I have also run my pretty much stock PT at Sacramento Raceway a few times and know very well what and what will not "win" over a PT Cruiser.

Danny aka busted_pt look at the list CREWZIN posted and you know where I would be..
