With race tires, ill probably show him tail lights the whole way... If he can see that far down track...
Oh really now?

Yup... He finished the mile at 300 kph, or about 180 mph...

The last time I was at the Texas mile, I was doing just over 180 mph between the 1/3 mile and the 1/2 mile... Should have gone around 220 that pass, and that was on boost alone, no spray... My last licensing level was a clean pass between 205 and 220. I blew up a turbo at 180+.

Any other comments... I can post video if you like...

Not only took him out of the hole, smoked him all the way. Claimed to be modded up, but at 11.50's, I think he wasted his money.

Your on another level with the mods though. There are GTRs out there that are more on your playing ground... this one is not.

this guy ran a 155mph in the mile, I call this 650hp Camaro BS, and bad driving skills, plus vert and stupid wheels. No one knows the setup on the Camaro, on the other hand the bolt on GTR setups are well documented.

Then there is wheel hp vs engine hp and so on, youll never know what has been advertised here. GTR ran 186mph in the 1mile, that would require about 700bhp if im not mistaken.

Here is the Hennessey ZL1 that ran 186.6mph with Jessi Lang, taking into consideration she barely has any seat time in that thing and I really think it has a 190mph in it. GTR's are immune to driver error obviously due to the AWD and DCT.

That seems very unusual for the SS. It's too bad they don't show his speed at the 1/4 mile. Then we'd be able to judge how much power it's putting down. It could very well be traction related. That 2.5s 60' time is absolutely horrible. Even a bolt-on SS without a blower will be in the 12's.

I loved every second of your run. I've ran at MIR a few times recently, but I haven't seen your 300C.

I also call BS on the qtr mile time of a 600+ car. But who knows why that happened....


Heres something that you guys might turn your head at....watch this video and pay attention....at 30-33 seconds in, theres a burnout mark that appears out of nowhere...kinda weird. There's also a Lamborghini that gets his rear diffuser/bumper ripped off at 2 mins in. (didn't mean to jack the thread)

the camaro had 22" rims and spun off the line. it is very possible that it would only run a 13 sec if that happened.


ive had a run in with a 600rwhp GTR. he took off before i did and i barley was realling him back in ........and im a 9 sec car...

GTR's are fast cars.
