    Hey guys, new to the forum. Just curious has anyone increased their 0-60 time on a 2012 Signature? Can you add the ludacris or insane mod?

    Guys, I think OP is looking for a clear answer.

    I’d say no. :cool:

    I've heard of 0-60 increasing. +1 second. Why would anyone want to increase it? The car does that itself o_O

    Maybe lighter aftermarket wheels will improve the time slightly?

    If I’m not mistaken the rwd p85 cars are traction limited.

    can you elaborate on traction limited? Have a 2014 P85 just curious what that statement means.

    It means that if any more power was applied the tires would slip/spin.

    If that is the case, sticker or wider tires might help (but would wear much faster and hurt range).
