    • 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.

        1.5 is amazing but he bogged the shift so he can improve. You have to get out of first cleanly to have a good launch not just the 60 foot by itself...

        That was the owner driving and allegedly was his first time at the track. To cut a 1.5 60' shows incredible reaction time and with a little practice, I'm sure he'll nail down the 1-2 shift and get the car sub-10
