    wasn't this car geared wide for a reason? (hence the slow 1/4)
    for an extremely high top speed?

    umm perhaps that is because the car was made for the only purpose of breaking the land speed record for a street legal car
    it doesn't need to do anything else
    it did what it was designed to do
    the escudo did what it was designed to do
    they are in completely different catagories and should not be compared for any reason
    and to the kid who apparently thinks ferrari is the greatest thing in existance
    The new 360 modena and the new Viper SRT-10 (i hate vipers anyway so i'm not being biased its just the tested facts) will get about the same 0-60 time(depending on drivers and such) and the viper will win in the quarter by about 4 tenths (motortrend got a 11.8 second quarter for the viper and a 12.2 for the 360, but the test were conducted on different days in different places soooooooooo don't take the numbers as this is exactly what will happen every time, its more of this is the generally idea of how fast the cars are)
    if i was going to get either i'd take the ferrari just becasue it is slightly less(although still very very very) overrated than the viper

    AND ALSO
    check out the forum :for all you people that think the Diablo VTTT is faster<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>or something like that
    the first couple of pages are all about where this car got tested and everything and no it was not in a desert on a five mile straightaway jackass
    unfortunately the topic by the end of the forum(when it was closed) had pretty much switched to the Viper vs 360 and a Corvette ZO6 vs lancer evo VII
    so maybe you would like to read it
    its all a bunch of crap though no one had any really good arguements

    shitty acceleration?
    3.9s to 60 isnt the fastest but its not "shitty" either
    it probably cant handle very well because it was probably built just for top speed
     
  6. Re: Twin turbo v8 huh? less hp than the twin turbo v6 Escudo...

    the Escudo was built to last for hours and minutes between rebuilds, this thing was build for miles, you could drive this beast as a summer car, could you do that with your Escudo?

    Lol, they dont understand this. You might want to give them time to think about that one.

    Lemme try to end this. Hmm how should I put it.....

    The Callaway Corvette will tear up the Escudo in 'TOP SPEED'
    The Escudo Pikes Peak will tear up the Corvette in 'PIKES PEAK'

    Both cars were made for a reason (hint: the capitalized words)
