Isn't a Gallardo a 12 second car? Not trying to put down the S2k, but just about anything (including many Civics and more than a few Hyundai Excels) can beat it in a drag race with the right setup. Mustang GT500 runs high 12s off the showroom floor. There were plenty of timeslips from stock 4th gen Camaros turning in low 12's (and I think at least one magazine test that got into the high 11's).
Sorry. I just get annoyed when something is assumed a benchmark in every aspect just because of its badge or pricetag.
^ I think it's more that a $30k car is smashing a $250k car. Most of those low 12sec cars you mentioned are under that price and would make for a good video. Hell, a boosted miata with mods could beat that lambo.
That's my point. You can build just about anything to beat a Lambo on 1/4 mile track.
Think about the fastest 1/4 mile cars. Dragsters are essentially an engine and some fat rear tires held together with scaffolding. The closer you get to that formula, the faster you'll run. I wouldn't want to drive a dragster around.
If you don't want discussion, don't post it on an open forum. If you had been clearer about the car's intended use at the start, nobody would have objected. It's just that when you start talking about S2000 projects, most people assume it's not going to be a drag car.
I am curious to see what this thing does when it's through, so please keep the updates coming.
As a drag car im sure it will blow minds, assuming he's going with a ladderback. It just seems like a waste of an awesome car to begin with. And all of my points about fucking up the handling remain valid, anyone who disagrees obviously doesnt understand vehicle dynamics. More weight sucks, more weight in front of the shock towers blows. Add in the feather light rear end of the s2k, and handling is out the window.
Alright guys so I’m not new to any of this just to the 2jz. I’ve researched soo much and haven’t really found what I’m looking for. Mainly just generically close. I bought a JDM 2jzge complete motor and wiring and stock ecu I believe out of a 01 is300. (Has coil packs)Was a auto. My plan is to...
Well Ive been out of the fun car game for a while, been rolling around in a 1995 Civic Si hatch for the last half year or so, I needed a beater since I drive over 70 miles a day. It got me around 33 MPGs but it sucked to drive. So I started shopping.
I picked her up with 32 miles. The...
I been trying to convince my wife to let me get rid of my Acura TL and get something more fun as a daily (IS-F). I been on here doing some research and thought I share my current built.. a 3 rotor last generation project.
I've posted this on other forums so pardon me if you already saw this...
