this thread fails
almost stock drivability
beats all-comers in independent testing
where are the pics?
yes, probably one of the best straight-line cars out there. puuuuuuurty too.
HOLY SHIT THEY FINALLY RELEASED IT!?!??!
THIS IS NEWS TO ME, LETS DISCUSS THIS REVELATION IN VEHICULAR DYNAMICS!
July 26, 2007
probably not too shabby in the handling department either.
I imagine it's a bit more of a handful now.
ya, but ring time?
ran 222mph in the Texas mile
beaten by extremely heavily worked Banh Supra (228mph) and SVS Viper (223mph)...they even had chutes
I just wanna know what they did to the suspension to cope with the power in the turns. Maybe not a thing??
Why do people think when a car has high horsepower it can't handle? Do you really think they go WOT into and out of turns?
Can't believe they didn't upgrade the brakes though.
valid concern, since they actually spun off the track despite the Texas Mile being a straight-line event!
