Because most people running the mile aren't running their race car, they are running their street car. If people were running race oriented Vipers, they'd put 20 MPH on any car out there. You will see this in upcoming races.
I hope these cars you mention make it out to texas or Maxton mile next year.
It would be cool if the turbo hyabusa record (261 I think) got beat by a viper.
7500-8500 is the standard, 11k is an over rev situation
if that's true - the rpm cut out did not work.
in any event - what incredible cars when they're not on fire.
no offense intended
shit happens to the best teams. With every issue though something is learned. Look how long it took Mike Moran to run a 5 in a turbo car when he had the power to do it 5 years ago. He only had to drop 1/10 of a second but everything had to come together on the day. If we could all bypass the learning curve we'd all be record holders.
Kudos to those out there doing it.
Like a cross eyed discus thrower, I don't set many records, but I keep the crowd alert
When you say KILL are you using it as a reference to a suicide type of KILL? It didn't appear to me that the viper was close enough to get a plate number on the gallardo.
My car wasn't up to task that run. I was never able to get more than 50% throttle before it breaking up in each gear. Hooked up a BOV vacuum line and changed the plugs and all was good...until the trans took a dump.
