My official car thread

Recommended Posts

Watching this show on Netflix called "Fastest Car".  

It's about "sleeper cars", all of which are obvious race cars.  "Can these obvious race cars beat exotics???" How is this a show?

Episode 2 is better, stories behind the drivers are better.  

Every one of the "sleepers" got ANNIHILATED by the bone stock Hurican, beaten by bus lengths.  In their defenses they're racing in awful, miserable, hot conditions on a sandy runway/

edit: Okay, I definitely recommend to watch episode 4 if you feel like cringing.

Episode 7 features some old dork in a self-made electric car losing control and smashing in to the nicest RX-2 I've ever seen.

Surely they can find some sloppy mechanics fan who's built a backyard 1000hp chitheap? 

Maybe they're too common in the usa to generate interest in the show?

There are some very 'lol' cars on there.  One was a rust bucket Buick Grand National that appeared to have a stock turbo.  The producers seem like they went out of their way to find the biggest ****bag exotic owners in the country too.   The only one that hasn't been a complete tool was some chick in a Ferrari 488, who actually raced the **** often.

The poor guy with the RX-2 was Abel Ibarra.  I remember back when that dude had the fastest import in the world.

All of these goddamn cars were blowing the tires off on the runways and now they're going to do the finale on a lake bed.  Idiots.

I can fap to this, I think.  That 5.2 has such a unique sound.  Impressed this thing will have a dual clutch tranny

My chitbox in the background finally hit the track with the manual! Gaptised that ford fairmont in the 1/8th but had a momentary fuelling problem and let out before the full 1/4. I think that's a company car the type which the race track always tries to highlight fon their site for business reasons.

What a monster.  7.6's in testing.  I never really cared for green Supras but this one might have changed my mind.

Wait is that 1.178 60ft ?!? ... I wonder if that’s reading the front wheels or not! Looks like they lift right around the 60ft mark jeeeeeeeez!!

Yo sobes to answer your question I’m adding a standalone fuel system and race fuel, then increasing it to a 200shot from 150. 

 

It’s hard to do mod reveal vids because the car is registered and aussie laws are strict as hell. 

I have a project car coming up which is basically a budget version of what I’m doing now, unregistered and can do a full breakdown 😎🤙👌

Noice!  I can't wait to see what times you can pull, gotta post some slips!

soon m8 soon! To run nitrous at the track and launch properly I need to switch to slicks when I get there and it's just a huge mission in the aussie heat... which is why I rarely post anything drag related even though I probably do more drag racing then anything else!

Bugatti Has Made A £12m One-Off Hypercar

bugatti-car.jpg

Bugatti has just made the most expensive new car that’s ever been made, La Voiture Noire.

Translated as The Black Car in French, the hypercar is a modern take on a classic Bugatti. It’s been based on the Type 57 SC Atlantic that was made in the 1930s.

Why is the car being valued at £12 million ($15.8 million)?  It has 16 cylinders, four turbochargers, 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. In other words, it’s an absolute monster.

An homage to the T57 Atlantic, it has some incredibly similar features like a central spine that runs nearly the entire length of the car. There’s also six tailpipes on the back, the same as the old Atlantic had.

It's got the same engine/turbo setup with the same horsepower figures as the Bugatti Chiron.  What the fuϲk makes this **** $12,000,000 more?  Sucker born every minute

Yeah exclusivity is like Viagra for super rich, you can just picture some feg showing off his house with this in his garage "Hey bro check my car only 1 of them ever made"

 

Give me the new Aston Martin over that any day (just not in that colour)

idk why but exotics just don't do it for me

Now of course I'd totally own and drive the chit out of one if I were filthy rich, but I always want to change / fix / improve my cars and what the hell am i going to do with a $10 mill car?!? 

 

 

This made it in the local news. 

Police / news teams just don't get that mexico is slang for street racing lmfao
