I was actually asking randomhero but that's cool. 2WD slow? HAha, try punching it in a 4WD equipped R50. You ain't going anywhere.

If you own anything other than the R51, good chances are, you're out of luck in the speed department.

Try going downhill. Should drop a couple of seconds of the 11.5-second 0-60. But who races this truck anyway?

Definitely turn OD off if you're trying to race it. Self-shifting will get you a little further, I think.

hahahah, you think a R50 is bad. try my WD21 with 33 inch tires. 0-60 is probably 15 seconds.

With a stock '03 4WD Pathy, auto, I get 0-60 in around 8.3 seconds. When I was test-driving SUVs I was actually pretty impressed with the acceleration and power the 3.5L had. It's actually two seconds faster than my last car, granted I doubt an old-man car like a Chev Lumina is meant for racing.

Not that I bought the Pathy to race, but it certainly helps when getting up to speed and/or passing on the highways. Especially in the mountain roads, I hate those single-lane highways clogged up with slow-ass RVs.:loser:
