    where did you get that cool video cut of the edonis supercarfreak?

    It's a McLaren F1.<!-- Signature -->

    How does acceleration suck??? 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds is pretty good in my books. However, if you think that this is :crappy acceleration"
    then i present this, perhaps it is because of the turbos. Maybe they begin boost at 4000 rpm so it takes a bit longer (.01) to reach short speeds. But usually if it is a twin turbo the smaller one (or one of them) will start in the lower revs at lower boost and the second one will kick in at say 4500 rpm to smoothen out the powerband. If tis is the case i suspect that the problem lies with traction. There is a point where too much power is too much for street tires. 680 horepower would be very hard to launch in street tires. <!-- Signature -->

    0-200kmh in 9.9 sec. I rest my case.<!-- Signature -->

    Well this car does accelerate pretty fast. But in general cars with gears set to ultra high speeds need to have balanced power lower in the power band becuase acceleration is comprimised for top speed.<!-- Signature -->

    turbo lag, maybe gear ratios....I don't know the weight, so that might have to do with it too.
     
  9. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    My guess is that the gear ratio is to blame because I am sure that they are very much geared to much higher speeds. I guess that the turbos are a factor also, but I seriously doubt that they have two large turbos instead of a smaller one for low RPM and a larger one for higher.

    and what do you drive? a mini pushing 1-100kph in half a minute. believe me 3.9 is plenty fast enough
     
  11. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    3,9 secs is very very fast.
    A F50 does 3,7
    a Diablo 3.8
    Slow? I don't think so
     
  12. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    2002 porsche gt2 said 4.0s but road test showed 3.5 or something

    so this 3.9 might actually be faster
    and plus...3.9s is NOT slow

    I bet that when you're in that car and yopu put the peddle to the metal you'l be wetting your pants. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
    ( So would I)
     
  14. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    the edonis now has 709 odd horses under its hood and this would improve acceleration to a ceratin extent....this is one fast car.period.
     
  15. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    too many wheel spin,it's tested in the mag named CAR

  17. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    The McLaren in red isnt that beautiful...
     
  18. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    dang at first i thought those were both edonises man was i suprised at that!
     
  19. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    A car mag said that its 0-60 was 3.2 (I've posted this pretty many times now...)
     
  20. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    must be a bad stat, or really crappy tires
     
  21. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    SLOW?!! Lay off the pipe........
     
  22. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    How does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds suck? I would love to have a car that accelerated that fast.
     
  23. Re: Top speed is great but the accelaration sux. Why

    I believe that the Edonis' acceleration is totally acceptable. 4.2 seconds is great!
