USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

  1. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    The budweiser rocket had 3 wheels, that's why it is not a car.. Also I doubt if it ever went faster... there is no proof, any redneck can claim he cracked the sound barrier. The ThrustSSC is not a rocketcar but a jetcar. The Ameritech McLaren is not a production car.... (even if it was it is based on a Brittish design). You could mod the Mclaren to make it outrun that stinkin car supposed to be the fastest... by far.<!-- Signature -->

    BadSamuraiSinger, Steve Saleen has been a die-hard Ford racing fan since he first started in 1983, he has a plant in Europe to produce/sell cars over there. i don't actually know about the chassis on the S7, though.
     
  4. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Theres a video of the guy doing it, not much more evidence I'd need.
     
  5. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Not with actual footage and SOUND of it braking the soundbarrier... anyway if it did:

    -the SSC went faster
    -the rocket used sidewinder missiles to boost up the speed, those are solid fuel boosters, you cannot control the fuel supply... so it's not a car.. and it had 3 wheels like I said previously.<!-- Signature -->

    I'M TIRED OF TALKIN TO ASSHOLES WHO LOVE THOSE CRAPPY JAPENESE CARS OR VIPERS AND THAT KINDA SHITY CARS. IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT REAL SPORTS CARS THEN TALK ABOUT A LAMBORGHINI, A FERRARI, AND ESPECIALLY THE NEW BUGATTI EB 16/4 VEYRON WHICH IS THE FASTEST PRODUCTION CAR RIGHT NOW, **** THE MCLAREN F1 OR STUPID ASS CHEVROLET CALLAWAY SLEDGEHAMMER CORVETTE.

    THE VIPER IS REALLY UNDERPOWERED BECAUSE IT HAS A HUDGE V10 BUT A BMW V8 OR A PORSCHE 6CYLINDERS TWIN TURBO ENGINE WOULD BEAT IT. AND DON'T SAY ANY THING ABOUT A TUNED VIPER OR RACING VIPER CUZ IF THEY HAVE TO TUNE A V10 TO GET IT TO PERFORM GOOD THEN THEY REALLY HAVE PROBLEMS.

    DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT TALKIN TO ME ABOUT A SUBARU. THEY SUCK. PEOPLE ARE COMPARING IT TO A BMW, BUT THEY DON'T COMPARE STUFF LIKE TOPSPEED OR QUALITY AND STUFF LIKE THAT CUZ THEY KNOW THAT THE BMW WOULD WIN. AND IT'S AWD SYSTEM IS REALLY OLD, MY GRANDFATHER HAD A LANCIA DELTA WITH THE SAME AWD 25 YEARS AGO.

    JAPENESE CARS SUCK MY LEFT NUT,
    AMERICANS HAVE GREAT CARS (CAMARO, TRANS AM...) AND SOME SHITY CARS (VIPERS, CORVETTES)

  9. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Hey now, don't bust a cap. I don't want a 187 on my ass.

    It's still better and it still runs, live with it.
     
  10. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Why? I like the Ameritech McLaren F1. The Ameritech McLaren F1 is the fastest production car to date. The Ameritech McLaren F1 is a great car - yeah, Ameritech for their McLaren F1.

    What... gonna shoot me? Better be careful who you're threatening over the internet, friend...
     
  11. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    I used something called Irony. This included an exaggeration to stress my issue with the McLaren being called an Ameritech, which is false.

    I'm sorry it was too difficult for you. I'll leave that in the future.
     
  12. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Yeah, I here you, Tim. What a dumbass.

    But, seriously, I'd love to have an Ameritech McLaren F1 LM, man, those are the bomb!!
     
  13. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Okay this is sad...First off, the McLaren is not a ture Ameritech car, so it can't be called one. Hence stolen-ness?....Or somthing to that degree. Second, to the guy who says vipers suck. Lets see you make a V10 lighter then that, and and still kick anyones ass. Btw, they dun tune it, cause they dun gotta. I dun get why you would even think of tuning a viper unless you put new exhaust and new tires, maybe. But overall, dun #$%# with the name of the McLaren, and even if it is slow, it's body weight sure makes up for the V12.<!-- Signature -->

    TVR_Man we still beat your ass, then saved your ass, then saved your ass again, then gave your countries money to keep you from going under. If we're so stupid and lazy, that doesn't say much your you. In your country, where you have no rights, you could be arrested for saying that. In my country, where I have rights, I can express my opinions without fear.

    Lets add another 200 horsepower to this car and make it piss all over your 12.

     
  18. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    Well, the 12's slower, so I don't see your point there, and the Jags are made by Ford now, so that's kind of dumb.

    I am a US Marine, and TVR, if you EVER want to get SERIOUSLY #$%#ed up, come on over. Best in the world, mother#$%#er - cars, killing, it's all the same; USA rules.

  19. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    No you dumbass, I was referring to the revolutionary war. We beat some ass. I don't care who you are, we either gave you money or you owe us. Seems to me if we wouldn't of stepped in the only language you would know is German asshole. Respect the people who pull your ass out of the fire. Exactly what country are you in, I'd love to compare. And get YOUR facts straight you little shit, we fought Germany, Japan, and Italy.

    I like the way Ducati put it, this car was an option on a factory car. Thats as simple as I can put it, go read his post.

    You can further tune this car you shallow #$%#.

    Go ahead and come after me, I've never lost to a preteen before.
     
  20. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    This is getting out of hands here.

    You can't be arrested in the UK for saying something. (I think)

    Actually, freedom of speech is greater of here in Europe.
    In German Television you don't ever here somebody being "beeped" because he said a "4-letter-word". And they never blur words like **** on T-Shirts and they don't blur nudity. That's just about freedom.

    And actually we got our little butts kicked mostley by the Russians in WW2.

    But I think this is way OFF TOPIC in a supercar forum.
     
  21. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    agreed, but our freedom is guarenteed. And if we don't like the way things are going we have every right to change it.
     
  22. Re: USA IS THE KING OF SPEED.

    yeah lets start talking about cars not Russians and WW2

    @Will

    Check it out where?

    And then WHO paid them?

    I mean, even the greatest Chevy-Fan out there will have a hard time to believe that Ferrari, Honda, Ford, BMW, Renault, Toyota & Mercedes
    took on the challenges of each other but when Chevy came they shivered and thought, well let's collect some money and pay them off.

    What you mean is maybe GM Stock Holders paid Chevy not to waste their money and time in an unsuccesful F1-participation.
