I just watched the video. What gears are you running?

According to the FM Gear Calc, 2d gear only goes to 52mph. You shifted into 3d after 5 seconds elapsed from your launch (1:14 to 1:19 in the video). So that means you weren't even going 60 yet and it had already been 5 seconds. If you are running different tires and/or gears, maybe you did it. But if not, there's no way. Is it a quick car, probably, but I think you are getting a bit over-confident if you think you can do 0-60 in 4.45 seconds.

TS: great car and looks good.

BUT

I hate to **** in your cheerios, but there is no way in hell your car pulls off 4.45 0-60. That is awd launch sub 1.8 60' territory.

I have never gone to a track yet so i can only estimate.

I have another video where I did 0 to 100 in 11.5 seconds, 0 to 130mph in 19.3 seconds It was in the winter on a cold road & tires like 15 degrees outside, where I launched at part throttle in first & second gear for a 0-60 of 5.1.

My friend when he put the video together able to watch it frame by frame said the video showing the gauges was exactly 4.45 seconds 0-60

The road is 151 & i drove up only part of it in the video it is a awsome twisty road. I have not driven on back roads for a while so i took it easy. It is one of my favorite roads.

Watch the video again, he's in first bouncing off the limiter, then in second bouncing off the limiter again, and then in third by the time 1:19 rolls around (actually goes into third directly in front of the camera at 1:18). IDK if it's 4:45 0-60, but it is fast, looks to be a little closer to 5s judging from where you can hear the car beginning to move. Sorry, in my book, clutch engagement and any forward movement is when the clock starts.
*edit* After watching the shot from the interior, you're moving forward about 1:30.5 at 4,000RPM, then begin to spin. You hit 60 dead on 1:36. That's 5.5 seconds, which is still fast.

Also sounds and acts like he has 4:10s.

In the gauge video I reved the engine 3 times & let the clutch out on the 3rd rev about 5500 rpms. 1st rev was about 3500 rpms 2nd rev was about 4500 rpms 3rd rev was about 5500 rpms when I let out the clutch.

The gears & differential are the stock gears & differential that come on the Mazdaspeed mx5.

2575lbs? is that with you in the car? fwiw- Tire spin is detrimental to acceleration.
