    There is no stopping the Viper ACR. It is a track animal bent on destroying whatever dares come across its path. The M4 GTS? The Shelby GT350R? The Porsche 911 Carrera S? The new Acura NSX? The McLaren 570S? All simply lambs led to the slaughter. Emphasis on slaughter. Just look at what the Viper ACR did around Laguna Seca in the hands on Randy Pobst: 1. Dodge Viper ACR - 1:31.58 2. Audi R8 V10 Plus - 1:34.23 3. McLaren 570S - 1:34.58 4. Mercedes-AMG GT S - 1:35.30 5. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R - 1:36.11 6. Acura NSX - 1:36.36 7. Porsche 911 Carrera S - 1:36.44 8. Nissan GT-R - 1:37.08 9. BMW M4 GTS - 1:37.66 10. Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE - 1:37.78 11. Jaguar F-Type SVR - 1:38.75 12. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S - 1:41.77 It is almost a full three seconds faster than the next car up which is the Audi R8 V10 Plus. That is a beatdown. The Viper ACR is just on another level and it's amazing this car does not get more respect. Now, it is interesting to contrast MotorTrend's results at Laguna Seca to Car and Driver's results at VIR (Virginia International Raceway). The R8 V10 showed very weakly in Car and Driver's hands yet it is the second quickest car here with Randy Pobst at the wheel. When we say Car and Driver's hands we mean their staff who simply is not on Randy's level when it comes to driving prowess. Car and Driver's Lightning Lap is a good comparison but it is not as scientific as MotorTrend's (which also isn't perfect) due to taking place on multiple days with multiple drivers. MotorTrend uses Pobst at Laguna Seca with the cars running on the same day. That is a big difference. As is the fact VIR rewards power in the lap time more than the shorter and tighter Laguna Seca. What do we learn? That the M4 GTS get its ass handed to it by the Mustang GT350R yet again. It loses at VIR, it loses at Laguna Seca, and it is simply safe to say the GT350R is the superior track performer anywhere. Yes, at a fraction of the price. When you bring the M4 GTS asking price into the argument the car looks like a joke. Is its laptime respectable? Sure, if beating a Camaro SS that comes in at less than 1/3 of the money by a tenth of a second is respectable. The AMG GT S is cheaper, the 911 Carrera S is cheaper, the Nissan GT-R is cheaper, the Mustang GT350R is cheaper, and the Viper ACR is cheaper. What do they all have in common? They are all better performance cars than the M4 GTS. The Mercedes-AMG GT S deserves honorable mention beating the stout GT350R as well as the incredible new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Considering the GT S is not even anywhere near as hardcore as the GT model line gets, that is impressive. Enjoy the videos of the laps below with impressions from Pobst. The winner of the competition will be announced shortly. If we were to guess, the Carrera S is the favorite.

    Thought I may start a build thread for my C63. The car is currently record holder for NA C63 1/4 time in Aus 11.5@121. Mods list was: Autowerks Tune, Difilipo headers, dual 3inch exhaust, intake snorkels. The new mods are: Weistec Stage 3 Weistec Gearbox Modified valve body New standard convertor Weistec ice trunk Dime racing Forged Pistons and Rods Dime racing CnC ported heads Wave track LSD Autowerks Tune mods to do: upgrade fuel system 20psi pulley and tune future mods: 4ltre charger My end goal is to have it running between 9-0-9.5 in full street trim (no interior removal) besides the race fuel. I do not intend to fit a cage how ever in Australia if you go sub 10 and 150+mph you need a cage and shoot. I am hoping to have it running by end of October. I won't be running any fast times soon as where I live is extremely humid in summer and it rains as though it's tbe Amazon! I will try update this thread frequently but also follow me on Instagram harun_gee

    These wheels weigh 11-12 lbs per wheel. Everything else might as well be made of lead! At $2k per wheel, they are also an unbelievably good deal. I've ordered a set for my E63. Between these wheels and my Girodisc rotors, I will be dropping over 22 lbs of unsprung weight at each corner!

    The 991 GT3 RS running from a roll is something we have all seen before. It's certainly a stout car but it is built for the track. The aerodynamics slow it down due to increased drag but the low curb weight (roughly 400 pounds less than the E92 335i), rear wheel drive layout, and high revving 4.0 liter flat-6 make for an efficient package. The GT3 RS is slower than a rear wheel drive Huracan from a roll. It did beat a tuned SL600 from a dig which is something an N54 on upgraded stock housings is capable of as well. What about this particular 335i in the video? It gets pulled right off the line as if it was in the wrong gear or has the stock housing turbo upgrade with the worst lag in the world. It does finally come back strong up top but with all the torque down low the N54 has with a turbo upgrade the driver didn't seem to have it where he should have on the tach at the start of the race considering the terrible start. + Palm Turbos Stage 1 + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning + Supersprint catback X-Pipe + VTT Inlets + Intercooler från KL Racing + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts + Walbro 455 pump + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stock

    Getting close to the 11's from a factory 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo with bolt on modifications is definitely impressive but you already know the AMG M133 2.0 liter is a hell of a motor. AMS with their bolt on Alpha modifications managed a 12.168 @ 114.53. What are the modifications? An Alpha Performance heat exchanger, auxiliary heat exchanger, upgraded air filter and intake, downpipe, and Alpha tune. The total bill for those modifications? $4899.75. Not exactly cheap but there are other value options for the platform. The point ultimately is that you can run 12 flat with just basic mods on the 45 AMG models.

    We all know the Tesla Model S P100D is quick off the line. GPS test numbers showed 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and 0-100 in 6.5. The 1/4 mile trap speed on the VBOX used for the GPS numbers showed 124.5 GPS trap speed timing often inflates trap speeds versus real world drag strip numbers. That is the case here. The Tesla is still fast but on an actual strip runs 10.825 @ 122.93. The Huracan manages 10.843 @ 127.23. The two cars and very close and it really comes down to reaction time for the win. The Tesla is hard to beat right off the line but you can see just how much harder the Huracan is pulling past the 1/8 mile. From a roll, the Tesla has no chance. Certainly impressive performance from the P100D but it is a bit of a one trick pony.
