Good threed guys... keep it up

give me a Lingenfelter twin turbo ls1 corvette. http://www.lingenfelter.com/turboviews.asp
Times are with auto
0-100km: 1.97 sec
Quarter Mile: 8.93 sec @ 153 mph and it is running really low boost.
I wonder if anyone has slotted one of these babies under the hood of a commodore... probally not.
the price for the engine a cool $50,000us, about 75G's in aussie terms.

0-100 in 1.97 seconds. Are you serious. That is about as fast as a Formula One car. It would have bugger all traction and would be lucky to hit 100 in 4 seconds.

At a guess, I think it may be a typo. 0-100 meters possably?

nope not a typo this car is scary fast, these are the full numbers
0-60 mph/100km: 1.97 sec
0-100 mph/160km: 4.33 sec
Quarter Mile: 8.93 sec @ 153 mph/245km
Skidpad: 1.01g
Top Speed: 240 mph/383km
Braking, 60-0 mph/100km: 108 ft/33meters

305/30Zr tyres at the back help it with the traction.

it is not a typo. I have seen the runs of the car and that is the times. Of course the one that was running did not have the Vette IRS and had a Ford 9" underneath. One fast sick puppy.

1.9 how ever is extremely fast, even for a extremely powerful car with amazing traction.. Other cars that are also extremely powerful like the twin engined 7 cars (two 180hp i4 bike engines, 4wd, about 400kg).. can only just get about 3 seconds 0-60mph..

To get 1.9 your talking a full drag car with wheelie bar etc..
