How come the M3 has a better 0-60 than the E92 M3 GTS? The car produces more power, has a dual clutch transmission and is around 400 pounds lighter, according to car and driver, the 0-60 time SHOULD be in the 3 second range.

Please don't ruin the M3 GTS' MRA when correcting this, as many pl11.1 "MRA buffs" actually ruined the cars' 0-100/0-150 times.

    it's not the first time when hutch buffed a car's 0-60 which also indirectly nerfed its MRA.

    Zonda 760RS, 720S, Cerbera Speed 12, these are all the past examples.

    @HeissRod and the rest of the team, what do you think about this?

    Correction noted for Hutch to review the hierarchy of these cars.

    Let us just hope they don’t ruin the MRA...

    if they decrease the 0-60 time of the GTS, then it's most likely a yes.

    as long as the 0-100 and 0-150 stays the same, there is nothing wrong with the plain and simple effect of changing a value in a mathematical equasion

    Not exactly. After buffing the 0-60, there *is* a chance that the 0-100 would be improved as well; but on higher end acceleration such as 0-150, it will be slower than the original state.

    Source: my RQ26 911 Targa 4S
    0-60 time: 4.6 (old) 4.2 (new)
    0-100 time: 9.9 (old) 9.73 (new)
    0-150 time: 25.26 (old) 28.13 (new)

    The F-Type R AWD Coupe‘s 0-150 got ruined with the newest „buff“, i m really hoping that will not happen with the bmw

    Its pretty much guaranteed to happen unless Hutch also change 0-100 time to keep the MRA value relatively unchanged

    That is ok, if the 1 mile and 0-150 times stay the same or get better
