Does magneride affect acceleration?
Yes, it does. In simple terms, it allows instantaneous adjustment of the suspension that allow the tires to get a better grip on the road.

Also is drag mode only available on PP?
Strangely enough no. Drag mode is only included with the with the premium packages with adjustable drive modes.

I'll pass on the last one one as i know someone can explain it better than me.

Wait so even though ford and all the articles touted 3.9 0-60 with a10 and pp, in reality you're saying (assuming heated tires and perfect track prepped surface), you'd also need magneride and premium package? Which would be another like 6k or so?

Yup, no surprise there. Read the small print. They advertise the best the car can do. They do not guarantee that you will replicate it. All of the other manufacturers do the exact same thing.

So i don't mean to start any fanboy wars, but how is every idiot on youtube getting 2.8/2.9 0-60 times on the new corvette NOT on a track, while most people here are getting 4.6 seconds on their advertised 3.9. That sucks..

I get the c8 can put traction down better, but i thought the track vs street surface should play a role, as well as rollout.

Well, depends how there measuring 0-60 mph, concrete v asphalt, etc, etc. Plus most of the C8 weight is over the rear tires. Yay mid engine v front engine.

Its literally just traction, c8 being rear engine just squats and goes. The DCT gearing helps as well. And being lighter of course.

Yeah I guess. I just thought with rollout and track prepped surfaces, C/D and chevy would advertise like 2.5 seconds, and people getting 2.8 would be happy lol.

The C8 would be mid engine whereas the Porsche 911 would be a true rear engine. All things considered a mid engine would be the best for traction as well as handling. A true rear engine such as a 911 has a lot of rear weight to compensate for in turns without a lot of nannies. They used to call the 911 a widow maker as once the rear starts to come around it was very hard to stop on a normal road.. Porsche is one of the few manufacturers that actually under estimates hp, 0-60 and top end time and speed...However, you have to pay to play....

Sometime during the past year I believe C&D or Road and Track went into detail about standing starts and roll outs and explained why magazines use the Roll Out times. They also went on to describe advertised vs actual times on most cars.
Sometimes magazines will actually say roll out in the results box. When magazines or the car companies publish a time or speed as has been said it is with perfect conditions as to road surface, psi in tires and weight of car and fuel. Car companies may have their best drivers spend a day or two getting conditions just perfect to get the best times they can. Most 0-60 times are only for bragging rights as you will never be able to duplicate with most cars. There are a few exceptions but those are out of the realm of most average cars and more than most folks are willing to pay.
