Can anyone tell me what the maximum deceleration of a 1992 Camry is, in m/s/s? If you can post any links to reputable sources, that would be very helpful as well.

If you are talking about braking it would be a factor of the tires and road adhesion.

I believe it would be a little above 0.0 m/s^2 if you hit a wall.:D
Dammit. I wanted to tell him to experiment using his car and a wall. :lol:

Brake pads and whatnot make a huge difference. If your brake pads are worn your time will go up. If you want to minimize your braking time, upgrade your braking system.

Edit: Do you play starcraft? :lol:

Get some slicks and test it out yourself. It's gonna vary tremendously depending on your tires and what amount of deceleration forces it can withstand before slipping.

Braking will also vary a bit depending on the temperature of the pads and rotors. The hotter they are (usually after recent heavy braking or braking often in stop-and-go traffic) the longer the stopping distance.

There are far too many variables to answer a question like that. tires, brakes, weight in the car, air temp, type of road, humidity, incline of the road...etc..etc...etc.....the list goes on and on.

I like the wall theory. 60-0 in .01 sec (have to account for the time it takes for the car to compress :D)
