    Ok so like I asked you before what was you're point in that response?
     
  3. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    He's point is that every car is faster than the Sledgehammer, until the opposite is proven, haha.

    No, but seriously, the official top speed of the vttt is not known, so until someone can bring it up, this debate is useless.
     
  4. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    ok, i have 2 things to say, #1. not necessarily will the diablo go faster because it has more horses, if a car with 800hp that weighs 4000lbs goes up against a car with 700hp but weighs 1800lbs, car 2 would probably go faster, but there is also aerodynamics to consider. #2 is, well, #2 is useless to say seeing placid already said it when he said "the official top speed of the vttt is not known, so until someone can bring it up, this debate is useless."

    Is it me? Lamborghini's happen to fall into one of my favorite car lists', but nowhere can I find evidence that the VTTT is faster than the Sledgehammer. I've looked and continue to reference what material I can just out of curiosity, but I can't seem to locate it. Can anyone help me out? The links above are only a couple of the many that I have found giving specs on the VTTT and showing its' fastest speed to be 222.0mph, well short of the Sledgehammer.

    Looking at the my previous entry, I noticed my mistake. One of the links does say that the Lam is capable of 255mph. However, upon looking further, this is the best info I could come up with to date:

    "It is also known that another car was converted to 900 bhp Twin Turbo specification by Porsche tuners Gemballa, which also featured various bodywork changes including the fitting of the SV engine cover. The car used Lotec turbos, rather than Garrett, and was reputedly capable of 410 km/h."
    - http://home.btconnect.com/focuslamborghini/diabloVTTT.html

    Only one was made to the 900bhp spec and it was never officially tested to be at 410km/h

    At any rate, the VTTT is an american spec version of the Diablo by platinum motors. So, in essence, it is part american as well.

    I would first of al like to say that every person in this forum is apparently 12 years old. Gentelmen you realize you are arguing over tenths, and hundredths of a second. In other words these two cars going the same speed no matter how you slice it. Neither is faster, and yes the sledgehammer is officially recorded in the record books as the fastest production vehicle ever produced.

    Yes it is true that only one was ordered, but since they were built by demand, they still count as a production vehicle. If the VTTT did indeed beat the sledgehammer, someone forgot to record the time and place it into the history books.

    Bottom line gentlemen, is that all of you are wasting your breath, because you're opinion is the only one that's ever going to matter to you regerdless of what I say, or any other user on this board says. Now please can we get over the childish bickering and just appreciate a #$%#ing fast car. What does it matter if it is Euro, Jap, American, Australian.....etc. It's fast, it kinda looks cool, but it's fast. Now all you Euro lover's go back to looking at your Euro cars, all you bowtie fans go back to yor vettes and camaro's, and Jap fans go back to your Civics. Because guess what, they're all #$%#ing fast cars. And anyone could build a car as fast as this for $400,000, Callaway just kept it emissions legal.

    amen
     
  9. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    Who the hell cares? I'd like to see the Diablo race the 'Vette when the 'Vette isn't on a salt falt and doesn't have high speed slicks
     
  10. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    Do you even know anything about this car?

    Do you know where it was driven?

    Before you comment on this car make sure you know what you are talking about.
     
  11. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    Top speed is only related to engine power (hp) and aerodynamics (well and gearing off course). Topspeed is acheived when the drag equals the maximum output of the engine.

    Weight is related to accelleration and handling. To prove my point I would like someone to donate a Bugatti Veyron and some duct-tape to me. The Bugatti will drive faster than this car when I keep the rear spoiler from poping up at high speeds :)
     
  12. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    I Think that on that site, since it only sstates that it goes 255mph and does not give an exact speed, that it is possible for the VTTT to go that fast but probly does not exceed this specific corvettes speed. The 1988 Corvette Calaway Sledgehammer is still the best, un fortuneately Chevy only made one, but that just makes it more special.
    I give the corvette A very high rating.
     
  13. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    Since there is no physical evedience that the diablo is faster ill go with the vette since it was recorded... And im also a vette lover, too!!!
     
  14. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    I'm one big vette fan. But I don't like this car.... wait, i don't like any type of modified car.
     
  15. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    Holy crap is all I can say. This SledgeHammer was made in 1988. That is nearly 13 years ago. If chavy's supposed best car was made 13 years ago, what does that tell you about them? The Diablo is a very recognized car and well before I came to this site I never heard of a stupid SledgeHammer. So really, nobody cares about this car. And when I saw the stats for this car I was surprised that it had as much horsepower as it does, but really, its not that impressive.
     
  16. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    I know that im outnumbered here, but eh.
    First of all lets see which engine would fall apart first, I'd put my money on the chevy.
    Secondly, if the VTTT doesn't match or beat the sledgehammers top speed which I think is fair enough to say, the SSV tops off at 410.3km/h which still beats the chevy.
    Thirdly, only a complety idiot would say the chevy looks better than the Lambo.
    Fourthly, what the F#*k would you do if you came to a corner in the chevy, obviously you'd start praying, coz if there isn't mile after mile of straight road forget it; and lastly lets put these cars on a race track and just for curiositys sake lets see how many hours the chevy is behind the Lambo.

  19. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    No no no, tha diablo is faster even by 1 mph, and clearly has a faster acceleration time, this sledge is a heavy motherfu**er, as u can see, so the lambo wins easily!

  23. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    LETS NOT FORGET THAT THE SLEDGEHAMMER IS AN EXTREMELY MODIFIED CAR - THE VTTT IS MORE NATURAL, AND STILL IT DOES 255MPH THATS 410.5 KPH
     
  24. Re: TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SAY Diablo VTTT IS FASTER READ TH

    More Natural? WTF?

    They're both heavily modified cars, no two ways about it.
