It's all about traction, the torque curve at low RPMs, structural integrity and chassis engineering. That's why butt-dynos never work very well. My SL55 AMG with ~550HP/560 ft=lbs TQ is just as quick as my previous '02 996TT, 6sp with ~520HP/510 ft-lbs TQ on the highway at 80MPH+ and should be considerably faster up to 200MPH+ theoretically based on better aerodynamics and greater torque at all RPMs.pudicus said:My 525i Beemer with 189HP 2.5L inline 6 used to pin me into the seat @ launch. My Infiniti G35 with 260HP 3.5L V6 didn't. Go figure that one out.
Sorry to lay it flat out Lovett, but you have no clue period, based on your oh so insightful and inexperienced response. Get an :idea: , open your eyes, and start learning..........Lovett said:I agree totally dude! I am laughing my ass off right now at your comment! :lol:
Sure, I can write-up a hard-money loan for you. 10% up front due at loan period expiration @ 15% monthly APR. Of course, you need collateral (good real estate is best) that I need to appraise, be interested in possibly owning, and review before I'll ask my Escrow company to draw-up documents for us. Autos are depreciating assets as most material possessions are but I may consider them!particlefx said:
Thanks FromHereToInfiniti:FromHereToInfiniti said:I was going to call BS too, because a quick Google of "porsche 996 turbo 0-60" came up with numbers of 4.0-4.2. Then I came across this one at 3.6: http://www.stevecarter.com/911turbo.htm. Yeah, it's probably possible, but as you get closer to 0.0, those tenths of a second become much harder to cut off. Pretty soon we'll be in negative numbers.
Cool MustGoFastR:MustGoFastR said:Not so fast on the BS call. I did some checking around and stock 996 Turbo is rated at 3.8, so modded a bit, 3.5 is achievable. Stage 4 turbo upgrade will get you there in 3.3 sec :shock:
