Zero to 60 timing info from Edmunds!

Some of you have mentioned not being able to duplicate the stated 0 to 60 time of 3.8 seconds. According to Edmunds, from the article titled "2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Suspension Walkaround" dated July 24, 2013, it stated; "Josh promptly equaled GM's straight-line acceleration claims of a 12-second quarter-mile and zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds AFTER EXCLUDING THE SAME 1 FOOT OF INITIAL DRAG STRIP ROLLOUT THEY DEDUCT. But rollout and zero mph are mutually exclusive concepts; THE TRUE ZERO-MEANS-ZERO-TO-60 FIGURE IS 4.1 SECONDS!"

So obviously there is some constructive working with numbers here! I just wanted to post this to help clear up the confusion and because there have been multiple questions about it! I hope this helps in some small way!

Unless you do have an auto (which arguably takes some fun out to some) there are a ton of variables..

An auto will give computer precise shifts, perfect rev in launch control mode, push it as hard as it can take, etc etc.

I recall once reading a 4 speed auto C5 was faster than the 6sp manual in that generation by .1-.2 sec.
