      It's about damn time someone solved the problem we all face: my supercar only runs 10s in the quarter mile.

      People buying TTG's aren't concerned with the 1/4 mile - they are after the entire mile. I guess Heffner is trying to fit in somewhere since UGR is killing it.

      WUT? There are TON's of video's showing TTG's @ the strip... I'd say you're making a pretty baseless claim. Then again it is TCL

      Sure, but that's not what matters. These cars are all going to the Texas Mile and other mile-events. That's where they can really wipe the floor with everything else.

      Actually, I'm surprised it has taken this long for a Lambo to get into the 8s.

      What's going on with the rear tire during the first run? It looks like it is coming off of the rim

      I don't understand your logic at all? How does the definitive measurement of a cars power down the 1320 not matter but one-mile does?

      Cool. When I make comments like this in the 8sec GT-R thread, people bash me, but when someone else does, there's agreement for days

      Definitely a wicked car . I assume these engines can handle a serious amount of boost considering what UGR does on a regular basis. Does anyone have any info on what kind of engine work is done to these lambo engines ?

      Thanks for posting, cool video

      they have just about everything imagineable done to them, seriosuly..lol...fully built everything. it's amazing how much work and detail gets put into these monsters..


      on a side note...that reaction time and that 60' are uglyyy...that car should be easily low 1.5 to high 1.4 60'

      when those turbos hit, its gotta be like getting rear ended by a freight train. unreal the raw acceleration of one of those.


      does anyone know how the transmissions are beefed up to take that abuse?

      I said something like "Why is an 8sec GTR impressive when there are Civics doing 7s?" and everyone was like "you dumb troll, this car is street drivable! show me a street drivable 7sec Honda!"

      the tire is stretching upwards causing it to get skinnier.


      similar to what happens to top fuel dragsters but at a much smaller rate

      Endurance at WOT. A lot of cars need 10 minutes or so between runs to cool down.
