Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

  1. That is why the Bugatti EB was never a great seller. All the turbo lag!<!-- Signature -->

    Except they are small turbos each attached to a set of 4 cyl's... These turbos spool in a blink of an eye. <!-- Signature -->

    nah, if they tuned it good. *wich i presume they would have being rinspeed and all* then the turbos would all kick in at different times. reducing the lag, and giving it smoother acceleration.<!-- Signature -->

    The EB110 has been well sold , the company collapsed because it lacked money.
    and turbo lag already belonged to the past when the EB110 went out.

    This thing had alot less turbo lag than it would've if it had 2 larger turbos
     
  6. Re: Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

    I bet it has about this much turbo lag: NONE!! I bet the first turbo to kick in is about the size of ping pong ball and spools up faster than you can say jiminy cricket. From there the power probably just surges in harder and harder as each successive turbo kicks in. I would love to take a ride in this car. It's an absolute piece of engineering genius, one of the most beautiful cars ive even seen. I bet this thing would snap your neck back into the seat faster than you could ever even imagine!!!

    looks great, and i bet she would fly. god it would be fun to drive<!-- Signature -->

    I dont think you would notice it much hitting 60 in 3.3!<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

    JUST ADD NOS and make it fly hehehe or make it go a lil faster 0-60 cuz witht he engine its a pathetic 0-60 <!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

    actually its probably a sequential twin turbo system on each of the bank of cylinders. so no this would not have turbo lag. the 0-60 is pretty good i dunno where you get off saying its not.

    i wouldnt say this is the most beutiful cafr ive seen but it is very gorgeous and i also dont see where people get off on dissing catrs just because ferraries suck doesnt mean you got to bring all other cars down with them

    Engineering fact: Turbo lag is usually dependant on pressure parameters of the turbo, bearing friction, turbine wheel weight, tuning suitability of the engine, velocity of escaping gasses and a few other less notable things (turbulance etc).

    Pull your head out of your ass and take a uni course if you don't believe it. Or simpler yet, hop in a 911 turbo and tell the driver to stomp it.

    It's all down to how well engineered to what budget. And this one was damn expensive so imagine all the best parts from the top brands. It might have been laggy, it would have been very easy to be made laggy. But for the cost, I imagine they used damn high quality gear and spent ages tuning it.

    Man. The RB26 6 cylinder has absolutely no trouble spooling it's two turbos. What the hell makes you think a V12 will struggle with 4?

    Ferrari doesn't suck,you suck!
     
  15. Re: Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

    blow off valves buddy they reduce turbo lag
     
  16. Re: Four Turbos!!!! Great...Oh Wait Turbo Lag!!!

    it has 4 turbos to reduce lag. stick to your honda tuner magizine and stop trying to sound like you know something

    Learn how to spell Ferrari before you start putting them down you #$%#head.

    "The old supercars, the EB110 and Jag XJ220, on the track, when you can keep the turbos flying, you think 'ah, it's OK', but on the road it's a disaster. The Bugatti, if you were in a queue of four cars and waiting for the gap, you had to leave it in first gear at 6000 revs, in case you wanted to pass, which is crazy"
