whoa... that's talent. how does that work?
Shifting without a clutch isn't hard... you just gotta let off the gas, pull it into neutral, then put it in the next gear when the tach is at the ideal rpm. When downshifting, you do the same, but rev the engine to the ideal rpm when in neutral. The "ideal rpm" is the rpm that the engine would be at while going the current wheel speed in the intended gear.

But I don't see how not using a clutch would make the car any faster when accelerating. I think it would have an opposite effect. Using the clutch is the way to go, imo.

My calculations tell me that at our altitude (Denver Colorado) your relative horsepower is 80.9%
You could "correct" your time slip and see what the performance would be at Sea Level.

If you had 2 people in the car, that would affect it to.. plus you have to factor in human error (i.e time to hit start, time to hit stop) if your using a stop watch.. we did this in my boys 470whp supra, and were pulling off 4.7 0-60 with 2 people and a kid that cant drive..
