    when the manufacture lists the specs about a car, is it an average time, that average people would get? or is it from a professional driver pushing the car too its limits?

    i.e. so forsay a type R runs the 1/4 mile 15 flat, should i expect the same results? given the same circumstances, temperature, altitude, etc.?

    generally its done by pros i would expect something close to it if you know how to drive
    and depending on conditions you could do conciderably better or worse
