    Budget: 3,000 bucks. Desire: run 3 monitors for racing simulator. Case only. This doesn't include /steering wheel/ monitors/keyboard/mouse/speakers/etc.etc. Sound will be pushed into surround sound via HDMI off of onboard sound card. Thinking 32g ram, I7 4gig, liquid cooler, and GeForce GTX 980 Ti nice case with cooling, 250G SSD for OS and 2TB for storage. go :music-rockout:

    Some very fast cars in this video. It is shot from the perspective of the bolt on Gen IV Viper so unfortunately we do not get an in car view for each race but that is ok. There are several good runs here we do get to see in their full glory. The first race is a chase view between the C6 ZR1 and the procharged C7 said to be making 820 wheel horsepower with meth injection. The C6 takes the race and it is said to make 900 whp. The bolt on Gen IV Viper camera car runs the C7 next. Considering the Viper is down 200 wheel horsepower it does fairly well until the power disparity shows. The C7 is very, very quick. The bolt on Viper next takes on a UGR (Underground Racing) twin turbo Viper. As you can imagine this is a beatdown. Once the turbo Viper spools and shifts it is gone. It just takes off. The bolt on Viper camera car takes on another twin turbo Viper after this and the result is much of the same. The yellow UGR Viper runs the ZR1 next but this is a chase view unfortunately. The Viper does take the win though. The final race features a T67 Supra against the bolt on gen IV Viper camera car. This is an ugly beatdown. Frankly, the Supra is probably still spooling as this is written. Nice to see cars at various power levels like this go at it to put high horsepower in context.

    I was going to follow begood69 tips buying a few different sand papers but the guy at the local shop insisted that this shit works and it does. Sorry forgot to take before picture but it was caramelized. Basically this kit uses 1000, 3000 grit then wax then sealant. Dont buy Turtle wax and Nu...forgot the name. Waste of money imho.

    Trying to get a McLaren P1 versus Ferrari LaFerrari comparison without Ferrari politics spoiling the show is virtually impossible. Really, we would just like to see a race between the two just for fun as we all know the cars are incredibly capable around the track and it really comes down to the driver and tires as to which one will win. Magazine times show the cars are very close with the LaFerrari times and the P1 times from the same sources essentially telling us they are neck and neck. The thing is, they are not testing the cars at the same time at the same location. Ferrari is forcing magazines to do their testing under Ferrari's watchful eye in Maranello. Let's look at the acceleration figures from both cars from Motor Trend: 0-100: McLaren P1 4.7 seconds Ferrari LaFerrari 4.8 seconds 0-150: McLaren P1 9.9 seconds Ferrari LaFerrari 10.0 seconds 1/4 mile: Mclaren P1 9.8 @ 148.9 Ferrari LaFerrari 9.7 @ 148.5 Piecing together magazine times tested in different conditions at different locations on different days is a pain in the rear to say the least when trying to get an accurate picture. This video may not be the best as there is no in car view and it may not have any recorded times to go with it but it does show the two cars running each other from a dead stop twice. Each time the P1 edges the LaFerrari out. This is the closest we are going to get to a direct run between the two for now without Ferrari's blessing:
