  1. Re: Inline 4?

    the cars in this class are limited to a I-4(turbo) or a V-6(na) engine for power.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Re: Inline 4?

    Hmmm.
    Yeah Sparetire..good point.
    500hp I think..but 1000hp on stock blocks would usually kill the engine, but then it's what ya considered stock.
    These engines are damned modded as soon as the car gets it =P

    Also, the other guys is right.
    Class is limited to 2xTurbo I4..or a NA 6 cyl.
    Thing is I'm not sure how big the V6 can be.
    i mean there are some huge V/I6 out there like the Vortech 4200 series from GM =P

  3. Re: Inline 4?

    80's f1 cars had 1.5litre inline four turbos. Supposedly, a BMW got up to 1300 then broke the dyno<!-- Signature -->

    43mm.
    2.5 bars of max pression in the turbo.
     
  5. Re: Inline 4?

    Thats is some serious boost. Guess it would have to be. But hell, with the RPMs these run at, they have that turbo spooled all the time.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: Inline 4?

    I don't think they are limited to V6 though....last year's Dick Barbour ALMS 675 class winning car was powered by a 3.4 liter Judd V8....which is the same design as their GV4 V10 engine with 2 less cylinders...<!-- Signature -->
     
  7. Re: Inline 4?

    I guess any N/A engine less than 4.0L goes then right? =P
    HONDA 2.5L V8 or V10 from the car series!! =P

    This year the rules for LM 675 are :

    atmo : 8 cylinders max of 3400cc max , with a restrictor of 44mm.
    turbo: 6 cylinders max of 2000cc max , with a restrictor of 43mm and 2.5bars of pression in the turbo.
     
  10. Re: Inline 4?

    As for the 1300 hp that BMW got out of a 1.5 liter turbo engine, you have to consider the fuel that was being run at the time, at lemans the teams are restricted to 95 octane gas, which is very low, considering that sunoco sells 94 octane gas from the pumps, and most other racing organizations allow fuel that is at least 100 octane.
     
  11. Re: Inline 4?

    Hmmm..that is true.
    LeMans is tough on cars in all aspects =P

  13. Re: WOW!

    euh...

    Anyone know? 3-4 sec maybe?
     
  15. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    R8 also is a 900 car and has over 600hp, I hope it would smoke this car.
     
  16. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    They are not even in the same class. Why would compare them? Compare this to other LMP675, not LMP900 cars.
     
  17. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard


    How strong is this one?<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    The Mg is one of the very rare cars able to defeat the Audis overall.
     
  19. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    The MG has a better chance against the R8 than half the cars in LMP900.<!-- Signature -->
     
  20. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    "The Audi R8 smokes this car"?

    How did you come to this conclusion considering there are NO performance specs for this car listed here? Or are you basing that on the fact that the Audi is an LMP900, and this is an LMP675? (in which case the Audi should out-perform this car)

    Make comparisons that matter instead of making everyone else get ticked off and post annoying replies like this one!!!
     
  21. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    hope it would as well. Its a stupid comment to begin with, they arent even in the same class. And go Bentley in 2002!
     
  22. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    Ultimate pace, this car is close to 900 car, but just a tad slower. On twisty track, this car should be on equal footing. At Le Mans, this might lack just a bit top speed...

    But where it is slower, it makes up in fuel mileage and tire wear. Which means if this car is reliable enough, it might just beat the R8 in an endurance race with less pitstop...<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    That would be funny as all hell. Audi would be pissed. Not that its too relevant, but hey it would be good PR<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  24. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    The Audis are faster yes but last year this little MG at one point was the fastest on the track in Le mans 2001 u never know, its a quick little bugger
     
  25. Re: The Audi R8 smokes this car hard

    anyone know how much hp it gets or does anyone have ANY specs for it ?s please i hope someone does
