If you have a heavy car with a consistent braking system, it is definitely possible to avoid skid issues as well.Would be sheer luck to have a 2 second car be sub 2 cm accuracy. Not to peel out the car would need to be heavy, and then there would be big skid issues.Thats a combination of time and accuracy. The time score is the time in seconds multiplied by 2. The accuracy score is the distance from the target point in cm multiplied by 4. The total score is the sum of both values, and a bonus of -25 points if you make centerline bonus.

We are discussing time score, so I was essentially asking if anyone has seen cars that cover the distance in 2 seconds or less.

NOTE: This is just my theory, as I am sure that if I really wanted to, I could push my times down.

Actually with a more massive car it would skid more. Think about inertia, that is directly related to mass, if something has no mass it should stop instantly so to reduce skidding you need to reduce inertia or mass.
