TX2K14 - Protomotive 3.8 liter 996 Turbo versus UGR Twin Turbo Audi R8 V10 roll on
The videos from the first TX2K14 event of the year are beginning to trickle out and here is an interesting roll on match up. The camera car is a Protomotive built 996 Turbo with a 3.8 liter motor putting out whatever it is putting out to hit a best 1/4 mile trap speed of 151.8 miles per hour and a 60-130 sprint of 4.67 seconds. However much power it happens to make is a lot considering this Underground Racing built R8 5.2 V10 is at 1250 wheel horsepower and they go door to door.
The R8 in the video is apparently Brandon Jacobs car that has shown 1831 horsepower to the wheels
. It clearly is not running 1831 wheel horsepower and why it is at a claimed 1250 horsepower is anyone's guess. The Porsche 996 Turbo is definitely at 1000+ as well though.
Traction is said to be an issue and the oval roll on although neat seems to be fairly short. The run is about 1500 feet meaning slightly more than a 1/4 mile. Definitely not enough distance for cars at this horsepower level.
