Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo.....

  1. apparently someone can tune a car better than callaway
     
  2. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    many companies can tune better then callaway, like Koenig<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    F1 engines in the '80s were tuned to approx 900bhp from 1.5 litres and they lasted 300km. would this 'vette last 300km at full throttle?
     
  4. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    Twin turbo v6 Escudo huh, all that HP and it can't even keep up with the v8.

    This thing could last way past 300km, the test engine only broke after redlining for 2 weeks.

    Escudo ROCKS! :D<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    Ok there is a major difference between teh state of tune in a Racing engine (Twin turbo Escudo) and something remotely driveable on teh road (calloway V8) Now don't get me wrong I am not a General Motors fan or ewven a Calloway fan, I just don't think it is fair that two vastly different engines and concepts can be compared fairly, it is Kinda like comparing say a Cessna with an F-15, just cannot be done fairly or logically!

    Well considering the fact that the escudo HAS TWO ENGINES YOU IDIOT<!-- Signature -->

    Excuse me the Original Pikes Peak Escudo hd 2 2.0 V6 Units both turbocharged! the Second (which I have also seen racing here in NZ) had a single unit in a higher state of tune!

    yeah well those italian V8's are better then your american V10's! here's a quick engine comparison between a dodge viper and a 360 modena! they are both NA engines:

    viper V10
    size:8 litres
    HP:450
    HP per litre: about 55 hp
    torque: 490 ft lb
    result in 0-60:4.3

    360 Modena V8
    size:3.5 litres
    HP:395
    HP per litre: about 110 hp
    torque: 275 ft lb
    result in 0-60: 4.3

    So i wouldn't talk Bigblockbrawler426Hemistage8 about bad engines! a ferrari can do the same amount on an engine about 3 times as small and 2 cylinders less with way less torque! also i just chose two quick examples both from 2000! i know there are different versions of the viper and some are better but there are also different ferrari's and some are better so don't start arguing with me cuase we both know viper engines are pathetic so don't say that italian engines are pathetic! also i know this is totally off topic but i really wanted to point out the morons on this website like Bigblockbrawler426Hemistage8! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    I am guessing you don't pay much attention to torque? That is what the viper was/is aiming for. That 0-60 time is very arguable also, people have been able to get sub 4's in their vipers (in all models)<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    Allright, you morons need to stop playing GT3, that is Gran Turismo to those of you are quite that quick. Get a freakin' life. If the only thing you know about a car is what you learned from that damned game, you have some serious issues. Try going to the track when ever you get the chance. Or, even better, try opening a book once or twice. I think you will be amazed at how little you actually know. Anyway, long stroke, big bore America style engines put out loads of torque, but naturally cannot reach the same rpms as the smaller, "square" motors produced by the Italians and Japanese. Faster rpms equals more power, longer stroke equals more torque. American style cars, from Corvettes and Vipers, to Aston Martin Vantages and Db7s use large engines that have long strokes and reach relatively low rpms, somewhere around 6000-7000, to develope loads of torque for easy acceleration and get up and go. Ferrari, Porsche, Honda, they all use square motors, where the stroke roughly equals the bore, permitting high rpm and fast reving motors, thusly equalling high horsepower. It is a question of acceleration versus top speed. More horsepower means higher speed, and thusly more torque means better pickup. Anyway, stop using GT3 to get your information from, and try using your mind instead. Go outside and work on a car, or go to the race track and learn there.

    sorry but i don't spend my time playing that game and i never have played it! I bet you have since you know so much about it, i bet that's where you get your info! <!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    what kind of question is that! it has nothing to do with what were talking about! and no i am not a billionaire and i'm not a bum like you either!<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    yeah...how much of a dumbass can you be?????????? the escudo has 2 (TWO) ENGINES!!!!!! making it a 12 CYLINDER!!!!!!!!..PLUS THE ESCUDO IS A FRICKEN RALLY CAR NOT A ROAD CAR!!!!!! the escudo would fall apart at that speed cause its all carbon fibre

    God you people make me sick
     
  15. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    yeah i agree with the dude saying the escudo would fall apart those things are hella light and made of like carbon and stuff. He didnt have to get so up tight about it tho, its just a website dude lay off.

    Didn't the Escudo which ran at Queenstown have a 2.7 litre V6 running 850 bhp?
     
  17. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    the escudo i know of has a front engine and a rear engine both making a little over 450 hp. tight car!
     
  18. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    and i can guaran-damn-tee that if the escudo was street legal it would kick this car's ass in the 1/4 mile

  20. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    i have nothing against chevrolet, even corvettes. just people who like to degrage people to 'stick up' for their car. u know as well as i do that the callaway is a horrible car. it was tuned to extremes but it's still a shitbucket. now it may have 'good cornering' but it can never perform like a STOCK mclaren. i don't have to explain the mclaren's story but you get the idea. bottom line: too heavy, too ugly, and shitty accelleration, but good top speed. when you face it, all it has good for it is speed. nothing else. and the only place to get that top speed is out at the bonneville salt flats or some other desert or race track, but that's it. it'll never be a racing car or anything of value, PERIOD!
     
  21. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    I would like to know why you are attempting to compare a rally car that was made specifically for one event to a street car. That makes no sense, and like someone has already mentioned you're obviously a glutton for Gran Turismo. <!-- Signature -->
     
  22. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    This car would possibly lose in the 1/4 mile because it wasnt made for that. It may win. At top speed.........The vette will kick anything's ass.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    let's just get at least one thing straight right now. this car was not made for racing. not for quartermiles either and not for performance. it was given a beefed up engine and other misc. things but it will not keep up with other racing cars. now it may have 880 hp but it's acceleration is horrible for that much hp. the ONLY way it can 'decimate all' is it would have to be on a 5 mile straightaway, and nowhwere else. but performance-wise the car is a piece of shit

    Yeah that's what i've been trying to make people realize! Some morons say this car can waste any #$%#ing imports! lol that's funny when will ignorant #$%#faces like bigblock learn that this car is absolutly worthless in every aspect of a real race car besides top speed!<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    The Escudo couldn`t even keep up with this car!AND NOBODY TUNES A BETTER CAR THAN CALLAWAY!The Escudo has a top speed nowhere near 200mph!Nowhere near 150mph!THE ESCUDO WILL NEVER,EVER,EVER BAET THE VETTE ANYWHERE!AND THIS CAR IS WORTH ALL THE QAULTIES OF A RACE CAR!WHOEVER STARTED THIS THREAD IS VERY,VERY STUPID!
