The simulation fully account for wheelspin, at launch and at shifts. Check out the flat parts of the acceleration vs. time plots. It also accounts for a spinning tire having less friction than a gripping one. Like I mentioned above, cars just keep getting faster and the existing M3 has already done a 3.9 0-60! My range is justified, reasonable and likely.
