Not da fastest but I'm still FIRST!
hey guys.. i have been trying to do research and looking through the forums to find out what r32s are the quickest around.
i have found a few videos of R's that i feel are top percentile...
if you have any info or own a R you think might be up there please share
here are some videos i found, share what you know!!
All About the Spool
Don't know drag times, but a guy up in quebec had an R that had 900hp on race gas. He was selling it so I don't know who ended up with it. Here is the link.
Ya that car is bad a$$. I think it has everything you could do on an R32 done to it. Haha
go on Bluewaters website, he has a video of his car on the drag strip in denver. wooped a corvettes ass. I think it was in the 12's but don't quote me on that. that engine is no longer in that car. it will be converted to a 5cyl to put him in a different class to beat the top speed on the salt flats.
You mention 1/4 mile, is that you only criteria, or just one of many?
A lot of cars are optimised in a certain direction: 1/4 mile, standing mile (Texas mile cars), Bonneville, track car, road race, autocross, etc, or simply just a fast street car. The fastest car at Tail of the Dragon might not be the fastest on the 1/4 mile
And, a oldy but a goody: to finish first, first you must finish - some of the big power cars (and therefore in theory 'quickest') havent always proven to be that reliable...
HGP-T 450PS, Unibrace, 225/40/18 AD08s, OZ Ultraleggera, Light BBK F&R, Recaro Interior, .:R extras, MFD Navi, Phatbox, JCaps, Neuspeed, PSS9s, H2Sport Stage 3, DLI-Teknik, GC links, bHPP, etc...
All I've ever seen of that Unitronic car is an optimistic dyno and flames out its ass. It would be nice to seen some real numbers to go with the hype, i.e. 1/4 mile traps etc.
Gabes monstrosity definitely made the power, but the engine is out now and a shadow of it's former self.
Let's not talk about EIP's Stage IV....
A good point is raised though about criteria... if flat out top speed is the criteria then I doubt there are few as fast as mine, with 210 mph gearing and the power to get almost there... 204 was the quickest to date.
But take my car around Deals Gap and those guys set up for autocross would kick my ass, no doubt.
Wangnutz had the engine out of his car after that season. His car made serious power as attributed to his trap speed however, as there is no way around skewing those numbers.
I don't know the current condition though.
I didn't register for that reason. If by chance I am in country I will be going to spectate.
I'm hoping they put off a Fall Houston Half Mile in November. I'd be able to run that one as it currently stands.
You always see these cars at car shows all shiny and pritty looking. At most you will see a dyno sheet or video of a dyno pull. It's very rare to see actual video of a 1/4 mile pass, standing mile, etc.... It's even harder to find video of these cars putting in some serious work at a road course or Autocross session. Just because a car dynos a big number doesn't impress me. Some of these owners can't handle 240 hp on a road course so the only thing 5-800 hp is going to do is quicken there funeral!!! All my props go to the guys who ACTUALLY drive their cars on a track of some sort (drag, autocross, etc..) and can actually handle all the power the car is putting down! Anybody with$$$ can have a car that puts down XXX hp. It takes a real driver to put up a sub 12 sec et, or pull off the perfect "heel toe" with that XXX hp.
UNDER STEER MUST DIE!!!
As my skills/abilities increase UNDER STEER magically disappears!!!
Heres may daily driven R. Its nothing great 1/4 wise but it was run on 15psi and all seasons. Made two passes that day. Bumped the car to 20psi now need to go again and get my 60ft down lower should be low 11's hopefully
