My friends Dodge Shadow CSX Shelby against a bolt on ZO6. He has run mid 11's on race gas, but the track shut down the pumps this day. He had to turn the Boost down, and shutdown just past midway. It is a turbo 4 cylinder.
Sleeper minivan beats riced Honda Civic on track
Because I get it a lot, yes, this was at PIR.
Just shows that a sleeper car can still put a Honda in it's place. This
Plymouth minivan was one of the fastest cars on the track finishing a
quarter mile at 123.42 MPH. Definitely not an easy task! Either way, it's
always fun to watch some fancy Honda get his ass handed to him on a
Lotus Esprit top speed fast & furious
Some guy in Florida nearly buries the needle in his lotus esprit. 4
cylinder lotus with a stock turbo and a
stock chargecooler. This is a "1994 lotus esprit S4". He let off the
accelerator at 168 mph when the built-in radar detector went off. Too much
sun reflection on highway, otherwise great video. At 1:10, he slows down
for traffic---watch past the 2 minute mark when he really gets on it.
Camera he used was the Drift HD 170. Small dial in center is the turboBoost guage. To the right is the speedo, to
the left is the tach. Bottom right is the temp. Bottom left is oil
pressure. You have to watch the turboBoost guage to see when he really
gets on it (small center dial). When it is halfway, he is just cruising at
120-130 mph, when it goes full dial, then he is getting on the accelerator.
And no he isn't trying to destroy the transaxle in the 1/4 mile, he is
cruising to a top speed and being cautious!
