    • USP Motorsports built 6-speed manual 997.2 Turbo on E85 goes 10.2@140 in the 1/4 mile - 827 wheel horsepower

      Some very nice results here of a USP Motorsports built 997.2 Turbo. The car has a built motor and upgraded turbos although the specifications are not listed by USP Motorsports. The car is a 6-speed manual and that is reflected in the elapsed time and trap speed as well. For 827 wheel horsepower as claimed at 21.7 pounds of boost one would expect a bit more as PDK 997.2 Turbos with far less power are in the 9's on stock turbos (9.8 @ 135).

      This was the owners first time with the car so no doubt he will improve (bogged on the 1-2 shift) but the PDK is definitely proving itself to be more efficient. At these power levels the amount of torque becomes a problem for that transmission which needs to be upgraded. Video below, runs done at PBIR which happens to be the same track the PDK car on stock turbos broke into the 9's.

        Once the owner gets 1st gear (launching/when to shift/throttle control) down, I predict 9.8x.

        He should even be able to exceed that he just needs to get that launch and 1-2 down.

        The exact time depends on the tires. How much lower of a 60' can his tires handle? Is he just running street tires? street DR's?

        I need to see the slip for better analysis but I would think simply due to all wheel drive he can improve on the launch and I would probably only run drag radials in back as with the stated all wheel drive it is difficult to get heat into the tires.

        What I find interesting is the mention of launch control in the mod list. I would think the launch would be more precise with LC

        Launch control with the manual? Aftermarket program?

        It's one of the EPL tune features. 6speed lists the car as a customer's stock motor 997.1 with aftermarket tails; could also confirm this by going to the USP Motorsports website because they don't list any products for the 997.2 Turbo/Turbo S

        In the video you can see he hits a 1.5ish 60' ft. How much better do you want him to get on the launch?

        no it doesn't, look closer

        edit: It might have upgraded led tails though, but I'm still pretty sure it's a .1

        launch looks great but car looks like it falls on its face hitting 2nd gear
