      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'
