I'm doing some calculations and need a few good examples of acceleration rates for a 1.6 under various conditions. If you collect data and don't mind taking a few minutes to look at it, I would like to know the number of seconds to go from upshift to redline in 2nd, 3rd and 4th on a straight section of track. RPM covers and seconds to do it. I'm interested in level, uphill and downhill, just describe the conditions including draft so I can determine a reasonable range of values. Alternately I could use a slice in the middle of the range, say 6000-6500 and how long that takes to cover and treat it as the average for the gear.

I'm just looking for a reasobable range of acceleration rates in each gear. Any assistance would be much appreciated!

I had enough old data to get what I need for 3rd-5th but we rarely use 2nd gear so I could use some help with that. I don't necessarily need the full RPM range but the more the better with exact start & end RPM and elapsed time.

Just looking for time vs RPM at WOT in a straight line. For example, 5450 to 7180 in 4.6 seconds on level ground, or whatever.
