SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

Discussion in '1950 Morgan +4 Drophead Coupé' started by Fastcarman, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. Does anyone know how fast it goes? I think it will go about 200 or more but i'm not sure.
     
  2. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    F1s don't do speed tests, but the fastest that they usually go on track is about 340kph. they could go faster but there are no straights long enough for them.
     
  3. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    in 1995 F1 cas could go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.2 seconds, and that was 7 years ago when they had only 650 hp. now i wonder how fast they can accelerate with 850 horses.

    they can go well over 400kmh with a long enuf straight and do 0-100-0kmh in 4.2 seconds
    the acceleration takes about 2 seconds

    They had slick tires in 1995, so that undoubtedly helped them out a good bit in getting the power to the ground. Now, since they have grooved tires, i doubt the acceleration is much faster, even though they do have launch control to help them get off the line, but that really doesn't make them accelerate any faster, it just uses a computer system to match the revs and clutch to ensure a perfect, wheelspin-free launch everytime. They do have much higher corner speeds compared to 1995, though, thanks to huge advances in aerodynamics and, of course, power.

    They are now gettinig closer to 900hp, that is for the better engines, like BMW.
     
  8. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    well last season the top speed was 357km/h by the jordan and they had one of the slower engines.

    The "world record" was set by D.Coulthard in 1997 in Hockenheim with 362 kph, no-one knows how fast they could go with minimal downforce and more than 2km straights.

    CorvetteZ06:

    That you use this name implies you don't have too much sense of cars.
    Traction control makes the cars faster, because more than 15% wheelspin isn't good for the acceleration. It's not a "cosmetical" thing because Ecclestone didn't like the burnouts. And they are not faster in cornering because of more power, even a 100 HP Ford can be TOO fast for a curve, he doesn't need more.

    The loss of slick tyres has been more than overcome, especially when Michelin enter the circus last year the rivalry with Bridgestone has led to tyre-compounds that are superior to the slicks before they were banned.
     
  10. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    I thought I saw a caption during the Italian GP last year that said that Alesi went 363 km/h. But who can really tell a few k's when you're talking about more than 350. It's just plain fast!
     
  11. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    the car doesnt really need to be super fast. It just has to be quick. by that i mean around turns and such. Not many super fast circuits like the german gand prix. IMO tho.
     
  12. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    Well they totally screwed up Hockenheim, from Jean Alesi's test with a McLaren(or with the mercedes DTM) on it he said that he could 2 laps in 59 seconds or so.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: SOMEONE TELL ME HOW FAST IT GOES

    i heard it was prolly a shorter version of the track??? i dunno i heard it from somewhere. That could be the reason why. i doubt it tho.

    what ure sayin is without traction control... like a viper..... u cud go faster (for instance 450 hp viper with 190 mph0 but obviously one u move or turn 1.1% u go flying left, right, up down, then ure dead...... now with traction control its much harder to accelerate because the ngine is tryin to maintain balance and speed up which is pretty damn good (corvette z06- 405 hp with 170 mph of course with traction and everything a viper has just with more respect)<!-- Signature -->

    What are you talking about for the better engines like BMW Williams. McLaren and Farrari can get past 900bhp next season. Lets remember Williams mybe beaten McLaren in this years championship but over all Farrari is the best team, then McLaren, Then Williams.
