Hey guys I have a 2nd gen but I wanted to put specs for the 1st gen on my web site too. Can you guys help me out?

This is what I need to know (for all models):
0-60
1/4 mile
Lateral Accel
Top Speed
Slalom Speed
60-0

Any help with these would be much appreciated.

OK these are the only ones I remember, all from Car and Driver:

0-60 = 7.0
1/4 mi. = 15.6
top speed = 133mph
lateral accel. = .81 (maybe...I think...)

Here are the results from my N/A 89 LX ATX:

0-60 in 9.28 seconds
1/4 mile in 17.17
Top speed about 120

The manual says that it should do 60-0 in 155 feet. I have better then stock pads and have gotten it to do 60-0 in 138 feet. Maybe this week I will test lateral acceleration for you :) I got the results for my car with my g-tech pro :) In case you don't know what it is, it looks like a radar detector that sticks to your windshield. It has an accelerometer built in that measures momentum over time.

Ok, I have the September 1987 Car and Driver right here in front of me.

Their test of an MX-6 GT Turbo (I'm assuming '88 model) with ABS:

0-60 : 8.1 sec
1/4 mile: 16.0sec @ 87mph
Top Speed: 125mph
70-0mph braking: 195ft
Fuel economy (city/highway) : 21/28mpg

unfortunately, there are no tests for skidpad in this article.

This article is quite detailed and interesting... if you 1st gen owners can, try to locate a copy of this issue! It says "MAZDA MX-6 GT TURBO" right across the top and has a picture of a Porsche 911 on the front.
