Dagger GT: 2000bhp and 300mph

  1. That's a pretty cool looking design. Looking forward to it.
  2. This is very exciting. Geneva needs to get here.
  3. We are doing alot to keep the car just like the design and engineering has put alot of thought into transfering the power to the pavement, with out just blowing off the tires.
    We are using Tom Nelson as our engine builder and I'm sure you all know his reputation? So we are not just dropping one of his creations in the car and hoping people will love it, we are taming the horsepower so the customer can enjoy the car for a sunday drive..

    We are trying to be a solid contender for an American Supercar company that last awhile. We only intend on producing about 50 total for 2012 and 2013. On the 14th we will announce the specs and features of the car.

    No 1.5 second 0 to 60 times or 315MPH top speeds. After I'm here for a minute i will have my own post.. Don't like Hijacking post..
  4. I fail to see this going 300mph.
  5. Now I'm really, really excited. Would really love to hear more about your company and goals. I take it from what you've said so far that you're not intending to compete with SSC and Bugatti in the top speed war and focusing on a high powered driver's car.

  6. not very convinced based on the relatively poor rendering he posted, the location hes posting (here), and how he talks about the car. Sounds like a backyard mechanic trying to go way beyond his capability.
  8. LOL we are not trying to go 300MPH. It would be nice to build a car that could do that but there are way to many factors to attaining that velocity. The first factor is the transmission. Now one has built a transmission to handle all the aspects of everday driving and hitting 300MPH.. Plus the legal headache of worrying that some owner will try it and get a cross wind and achieve lift off..
    LOL at the back yard Mechanic statement. Where did Pagani come from? Lamborghini was a farmer trying to make a better tractor. The point I'm trying to make, Is the point of origin of a good idea does'nt matter as long a its a good idea.
  9. OK... point me to your website guy.
  10. Who the #$%# are you?
  11. A Ninja!!!
  12. Pagani came from a company that specialized in carbon fiber manufacturing, and Horacio was the composites head of Lamborghini before that. Lamborghini was an extremely successful engineer for vehicles, albeit in tractor form. that was also 60 years ago.

    Anyways, I dont quite see how the transmission could be issue #1. Putting taller gearing on a setup equipped to handle high power is hardly an engineering feat. There are plenty of transmissions that could be equipped to do this. Power gen, CDa, aero stability, tire integrity, and plenty of other issues would become problematic far before the transmission.

    The point you are making (regardless if youre trying) is that you dont really have experience in this field, and are either making things up, or are going to fail hard.
  13. No matter what you do you will always have negativity.. But being an expert and professional in composites, aeronautical aviation and aerodynamics. That kinda gives me a little knowledge of the subject. I'm not here to argue with anyone about my skills and the intent of our company. Also what ever I don't know I'm sure my partners will know or find out.
    My people are all experts in thier field, from the aerodynamic professor that has done tons of work at Bonnaville, to a chassis designer that has worked with at the top euro supercar companies.

    Also I know you can add a taller final drive gear in the transaxle and achieve a top speed of 300 mph, but quite frankly. I don't want too and this transaxle was designed to give you better drivability with a 2000hp powerplant.

    I crack up when I hear the fluff, car companies spit out and the consumers take it as gospel. The Bugatti's rear spoiler adjust itself by barometric pressure
  15. If you were so pr0 at composites youd have known pagani was just about the worst example to give for people starting auto companies in their backyards.
  16. We're being trolled.
