    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.

    There are turbo upgrade options out there in the AMG 5.5 liter V8 world. Most of you know about them and they are solid options but there is no true value option. Well, Pure Turbos decided to enter the M157 market with an upgrade for the OEM turbo housings. What is the pricing? How much power? These details are not available yet but will be soon: The main thing to take away here is that more competition is a good thing and Pure Turbos will likely offer the best turbo upgrade value in the segment.

    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

    With MotorTrend wrapping up their Best Driver's Car 2016 competition having all the cars together provides for a great opportunity to do a big drag race. They have been doing this every year for the past six years following the competition and who can blame them for the extra content? Obviously, some of these cars are more at home on the roadcourse (*cough* Viper ACR *cough*) than the dragstrip and that should be the focus but this drag race is undeniably fun. While they call this the world's greatest drag race (such creative self-promotion guys) it does not take place on an actual prepped drag strip. They use the tarmac at the defunct El Toro airbase in Irvine, California. This surface does not lend itself well to the rear wheel drive cars and MotorTrend doesn't seem capable of putting on the world's best roll on race to get both perspectives. Ok, ok, enough nitpicking but it is important to highlight the conditions in a drag race. They throw in a Charger Hellcat and cut the Aston Martin (lame) for good measure and we're off. No surprise that on the dusty old runway the all wheel drive vehicles lead of the line. Now, as this is not done a dragstrip do not take these 1/4 mile times as representative of what you can hit on the strip. They are timing the cars electronically and the times are inflated due to this. We have yet to see a stock Huracan or R8 V10 Plus top 130 in the 1/4 mile on the dragstrip. Now, due to the traction issues let's list the cars in order of trap speed to truly get an idea of who is the fastest in a straight line: McLaren 570S - 132.0 Audi R8 V10+ - 130.3 AMG GT-S - 126.7 Viper ACR - 124.7 Acura NSX - 123.6 Nissan GT-R - 123.4 Jag F-type SVR - 122.7 Porsche 911S - 120.5 Shelby GT350R - 118.9 BMW M4 GTS - 118.8 Camaro 1LE - 114.2 The 570S is the real straight line champ and if you actually properly launch it you will watch it destroy an R8 V10 Plus in a drag race.

    That is according to MotorTrend of course. After the testing of the lap times at Laguna Seca and the subjective impressions were factored in McLaren's 570S came out on top. The BMW F82 M4 GTS on the other hand finished second to last and we can officially call the car a failure at this point. If you want to check out the laptimes and videos click here. The subjective impressions rank the cars as follows: 1st - McLaren 570S 2nd - Shelby GT350R 3rd - Porsche 911S 4th - Camaro 1LE 5th - Viper ACR 6th - AMG GT-S 7th - Audi R8 V10+ 8th - Acura NSX 9th - Jag F-type SVR 10th - Nissan GT-R 11th - BMW M4 GTS 12th - AM V12 Vantage S The Nissan GT-R in 10th place is about right considering it is a soulless robot that best excels at going from a dig with power upgrades. That's really where it has made its name and please do not act like it is a great driver's car or track weapon. It's a heavy soulless robot with little driver involvement. The McLaren 570S on the other hand is a lithe and technologically advanced driver's tool. It's also light at 3188 pounds and incredibly fast in a straight line. It's hard to beat but it also costs over $200k as tested. Yikes. 2016 McLaren 570S BASE PRICE $187,400 PRICE AS TESTED $219,770 VEHICLE LAYOUT Mid-engine, RWD, 2-pass, 2-door coupe ENGINE 3.8L/562-hp/443-lb-ft twin-turbo DOHC 32-valve V-8 TRANSMISSION 7-speed twin-clutch auto.

Ferrari is simply a bitch when it comes to these comparisons. Unless they can control all the variables they won't participate. They are not run by enthusiasts and frankly do not deserve the business of enthusiasts. Posers on the other hand should continue to line up and bend over just to get f@#ked by dealers offering them the illusion that the artificially over inflated price they paid for their prancing horse is worth it. The overrated Italians are scared of the Viper ACR. They should be, it owned everyone. Ferrari even tries to hold it back. What a bunch of insecure Italian douchebags. Does the ACR really deserve to be 5th? Allow me to translate that for you: The Viper is loud and scary. It's the best driver's tool but we're a bunch of old men that have gone soft. We readily admit it's the best at doing what this competition is about, driving, but it's just too much car and too involving. Seriously, grow a pair MotorTrend. Reward Dodge for making a car that scared Ferrari and Lamborghini into staying home under the bed peeking out from time to time to make sure there isn't an ACR driving by. What about the F82 M4 GTS? Everyone should be sick and tired of hearing about this $134k failure from BMW. Just shut up about it already. It's hot garbage. The M in M4 GTS stands for Mistake not Motorsport. If that's the best BMW M can do for $134k when producing a dedicated high performance track car you might as well just shut the whole thing down and send everyone to work at 'i' instead. 'i' don't care anymore and neither should you. Let's to get real performance cars now and the one that should have won. The Shelby GT350R. Is it a higher performance driver's car than the McLaren 570S? No. Is it a better driver's car? Arguably, yes. When you factor in the amazing (and unique) powerplant along with the sticker price you scratch your head wondering how Ford pulled this car off. It's manual only. No dual clutch and no nonsense. Only real driver's should apply. Shouldn't that bump it up in a driver's car competition? How about that it beats up on more expensive cars? How about that it is the first production car with carbon fiber wheels? How about that the Americans are delivering engines that even Ferrari states are no longer economically feasible? Sure, it's not perfect but when you factor in the entire package the Shelby GT350R truly deserves the victory over something like the McLaren 570S that is purchased by spoiled brats. The fact it is American and the Americans are producing the best performance cars for the money today is just icing on the cake. The GT350R may not be MotorTrend's winner, but it's ours. 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R BASE PRICE $63,495 PRICE AS TESTED $66,990 VEHICLE LAYOUT Front-engine, RWD, 2-pass, 2-door coupe ENGINE 5.2L/526-hp/429-lb-ft DOHC 32-valve V-8 TRANSMISSION 6-speed manual CURB WEIGHT (F/R DIST) 3,711 lb (54/46%) WHEELBASE 107.1 in LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT 189.7 x 75.9 x 53.6 in 0-60 MPH 4.0 sec QUARTER MILE 12.2 sec @ 118.9 mph BRAKING, 60-0 MPH 101 ft 0-100-0 MPH 12.5 sec LATERAL ACCELERATION 1.08 g (avg) MT FIGURE EIGHT 23.3 sec @ 0.87 g (avg) 2.2-MI ROAD COURSE LAP 96.11 sec EPA CITY/HWY/COMB FUEL ECON 14/21/16 mpg ENERGY CONS, CITY/HWY 241/160 kW-hrs/100 miles CO2 EMISSIONS, COMB 1.18 lb/mile POWER @ RPM 526 hp @ 7,500 rpm TORQUE @ RPM 429 lb-ft @ 4,750 rpm SUSPENSION F;R Struts, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar; multilink, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar BRAKES, F;R 15.5-in vented, drilled disc; 15.0-in vented, drilled disc, ABS

    E36luv started a thread For Sale: VM 6466 Single Turbo kit in Buy/Sell - Parts
    I have decided that I don't need to have two BMW FI builds going on at the same time so I am selling this kit that I bought used. (I am focusing on my e36 build for now) I never installed it but if I remember correctly it has approximately 5k miles on it. The compressor housing is polished and the 3.5 down pipe merges to the stock exhaust. Manifold and downpipe are wrapped in DEI heat wrap. I will post pictures this weekend. Brand new this would cost $5795 without shipping. I am asking $4,995 shipped. That is at least $1,000 off and you won't have to wait for the kit to be built it will ship right away.
