    There are non-turbo Vipers running 800+hp, so turbos really aren't a factor here.
     
  2. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ignour all the stats, facts and figures for this one....

    The Viper is for sad, power hungry, medallion wearing, dirt people with poor personal hygene!

    The MacLaren is for classy, intelligent men who care about their image!

    It would be a good thing if the Viper was faster because you could get out of peoples sight quicker! At this level, it`s an image thing!
     
  3. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So we should ignore all the Facts, and believe that stupid opinion you posted?

    Shut Up NewB

    what in the world are you doing? you cant even spell the word.......!
     
  10. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, to get back on track, and the point of this thread, to sum up:


    Straight line performance = Viper

    Track = Either
     
  11. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    we all know for a fact that the 800tt will win in a strait line. just in the 1/4 mile the times are over 1 second off. thats a lot when you halling over 130+mph. i do think that the f1 will win on the track. the weight balance of the f1 is awesome. you sit in the middle. its a mid engine. the car is balanced very well. it will win on the track. (this is off the subject but does anybody know about the engine bay being outlined with gold? is a very good heat resistor. i think its the best resistor out there.)
     
  12. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So do you think the F1 will win or lose on the track?
     
  13. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    it may lose and it may not.
    until someone takes these two cars on the track, we may never know.

  15. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i would actually put my money on the McLaren...
    don't know if i've said this already but i ain't been in 'ere 4 a while...
    but the McLaren has awsome breaking, and wins around the track, mainly 'cause it out-breaks the other cars!
     
  16. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bluey, you're right you haven't been here for a while. But earlier i did post all the numbers for the car, and about the braking:

    97 McLaren F1:
    60-0 braking: 127ft

    800TT:
    60-0 braking: 110ft

    But i'd still say it would be a close race, around a track. And, most likely the mclaren would win.
     
  17. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well every car is made for its own reason. you dont take a monster truck and make it run up agains the GTX funny car! you take it and CRUSH!!!!! other cars. how do we know that all the performance #'s of these cars are right. just because a website or a piece of paper says a car goes so fast doesnt mean it goes that fast. if you took the two cars, put them on the track, during the same day, with the same drivers, you will come up with the winner of the two. but i dont think Motor Trend is going to put the two of the fastest cars on a track just to get us to shut up! we just wont know who the best is. i guess thats why this forum is still going on.
     
  18. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Look at the topic:

    - "this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Does anyone really think this is a good comparison in the first place?
     
  19. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was just wondering which one you thought would win on the track becasue you said the McLaren would loose, then justifyed why it would win.
     
  20. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, given all that's been said, i'd say that either one would have a chance on a track.
    But if someone wants to prove how a mclaren could win, they can do so. And if someone wants to prove the 800tt could win on a track, they can.

    But you're right they'd have to justify why it would win.

    But i won't say the 800tt could win, if someone doesn't say the mclaren could win.

    It's a draw, on the track, unless someone wants to prove (and justify) otherwise. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  21. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Don't you think it depends on the driver?

    I mean, it's not the car that wins a race - it's the driver, right?
     
  22. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But in a car comparison, like the magazines, they use One driver who tests all the cars, so the cars perform in the same way.

    But, yes it would depend on how that drivers technique was, in different types of cars.
     
  23. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    no no thats not right. they dont use the same drivers. i heard that from PHRTV or something. they test the cars on different days and they use different drivers. dont ask me why they do that but i do think that it would be the best thing to do. use the same driver on the same day. one big major problem is that the weather doesnt stay the same. if the temperature gets colder the car will run faster. thats why all the low running 1/4 mile cars run at night. the temperature is the motors best friend. now i know that funny cars and stuff run during the day but they run better at night.
     
  24. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are correct indeed, many car magazines do not use the same test drivers for different cars. In fact many of them have test drivers who specializie in car manufacturers, type of vehicle, and other aspects. To use Evo Magazine as an example, I know that they have one specific test driver for BMW. I do not know what his name is, but he used to race BMW's and has set some amazingly quick times, 4.3 sec. 0-60 in teh BMW M Coupe, that is around a half second quicker than most times I see. They also have a specific test driver for Porsche and Ferrari.
     
  25. Re: this v.s mclaren f-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, and the majority of the car mags are biased too. Swedish mags tend to favor swedish cars, German mags favor german cars and so on, makes sense in a way, but it makes them less trust worthy.
