Velocity Driving Experience - Lamborghini Gallardo
So I got to drive a Lamborghini at the Nassau Coliseum a few weeks ago. It was simply an incredible car to drive, even on the small, narrow track. Definitely a great experience to push one as fast as I could. Truly awesome.
1.8T VW Fox big turbo
Here is my first time at the track. Boost was turned down from 21 PSI to 10 PSI as the clutch wouldn't hold. Horrible street tires, 1/2 throttle for first gear and part of second because it would spin the tires like crazy, then you can hear it open up by the end of second gear and into third. 12.9 ET at 121mph trap speed.
