Best GTech 0-60 time I ever had was 4.5 seconds, with a standing1/4 of 12.8 seconds. But my car felt more powerful than it does now, had a Kelvar clutch (which could take some abuse) and - if I'm completely honest - the tarmac may not have been 'billiard table smooth' (i.e. bit of a dip in the middle).

Funny, some of the very best launches I've ever done, I wasn't even trying! I'd recommend NOT going for the '4000rpm-dump-the-clutch-come-what-may approach' - if the clutch doesn't bite, you're going to do monstrous damage to it; 2250rpm-ish with a very small, deliberate bit of clutch slip works better.

Anyhow - you've got an '89 5-speed model, so you should be getting 4.8 seconds!
