Why would you run a drag race with your window all the way down?

 

User avatar

cosimo  1m ago

mclarens are known to overheat, so drivers were advised to roll down the windows to avoid any overheating and engine malfunction messages popping up on the dash.

it's a cheap and easy fix, gotta love the boys back at woking for coming up with such a cool idea and cost-free/effective.

if ron dennis was still in the game, it would have been a different story.

I support Stroll in the long term but another year of development with Alonso driving for Williams might have been better for everyone's sanity. Williams update should also be interesting as their main guy knows how to make a fast car.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago

Easy to make a car go fast? The car has to have a very quick transmission, grippy tires and an immense amount of horsepower. Even with turbos the power delivery must be relatively linear. There musn't be wheel hop or excessive lightness at high speed. The ride must be at least somewhat compliant so you don't bump and rattle yourself to death.
This Ferrari is more than 3 seconds faster to 200 than the fastest baddest Jag.
A Bentayaga kept up with a 4c towing a trailer ..this could keep up with an F type SVR towing a trailer in a drag race. A 575 bhp car with AWD yet it's too slow?

In a surprise move McLaren submits a modified stripped P1 producing 1200 combined Bhp in place of their miserable F1 car lol.

 

User avatar

In McLaren's defense - they are not engine manufacturers in F1 and never have been to my knowledge, and the rest of the car, apart from the failed Honda engine, is OK.

I think this season rules allow for more engine development for teams like McLaren Honda, and I think Honda are panicking and spending some big money finalizing new (or heavily updated?) engine, which should arrive in a month or two.

I really hope its good. Fernando is already on brink of going insane because everyone he overtakes with brave moves in corners, just sails back past him in next straightaway.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @FastestLaps

True. If he got to a competitive team hopefully Alonso would comport himself well. Stroll wanted to be like Verstappen but the car is a bit weaker and everyone develops differently.

How about McLaren vs Ferrari F1 car acceleration duel?


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago

Man I wish Jags and Astons failed at acceleration like this. This car is so fast it'll do 125 mph in 9 seconds with a big dude sitting next to you and a full tank of gas on a subpar road. McLaren 675LT is even (suspiciously) faster but no one would complain about this cars pickup or turn in.


User avatar

What could i say ? I find Ferrari's politic odd because they make realy great cars when we talk about handling, steering, feeling, driving excitement and nice tech solutions etc but they fail in the easiest regard - straight line acceleration. Its weird because it is so easy to make car superfast in straight line.


User avatar

1: Every Ferrari disappoints you dude.

2: Stock my arse

3: Maybe that right there is a good reason why Ferrari doesnt want there customer cars to be tested? And why they dont compete in comparisons unless Ferrari is in control?

Who knows, But given the certain fast runs of accel both cars have made, Theres no way the 650 should be pulling like that, Even if they are both paddles, You cant mess up too much, I mean how hard is it to flick a paddle when you need to change a gear?

Either way it seems like most people are just finding vids of where certain cars loose rather then the best results, That in itself is a reason to Never think magazines only get the best times all the time.

http://www.mclarenlife.com/forums/mclaren-650s/69626-video-650s-vs-488gtb-roll-races.html#post1360306

Honestly these are a bit disappointing results when we talk about 488 GTB. From what we can see (videos, roll drag races, drag races from the dig, dyno results etc) 488 GTB is underperforming and may be even overrated in power output which is a realy hilarious because it has turbocharged engine. There is one great 1/4 mile run that 488 did (10,37s/ 221 km/h) but everything else shows that this car is slower than even Mp4-12c. This is why im not excited about Ferrari 812 "on paper performance".

488 GTB vs 650S Multiple Roll Races!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kel6sHD7FgY

Both cars are stock (except for aftermarket exhausts)


User avatar

BR2+  3m ago

We all no the 570s is way underated in power, Thas nothing new, But given tests of the 488, It should not walk away from it at all like that, No damned way, My guess it it wasn't stock


User avatar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-VmBLkoURM

Then 570S in straight line is quicker than 675LT ?

Either this 570S has ~700 HP or 488 GTB driver didnt do the best from this Ferrari...or 488 GTB is ~100 hp down on power.

These results are so odd. What do you think ? Is 488 GTB overrated in power output or 570S is underrated ?

FastestLaps  3m ago

Dat sweet blowoff sound when he lifts @ 0.25 :)


User avatar

Freakz  3m ago

I think the 570S is not stock, for example in this video every time they get to a straight line, the 488 closes in on the 570S (I agree it's not the best video, but there aren't any other ones to compare their straight line performance):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuxZwRpw9wA

At 01:25 onwards the 488 seems to be passing the 570S, but then again neither could have been flooring their cars to the max!

Ferrari and Huracan are real beasts for "non-hardcore" versions. Real close to 675LT which is a monster on tracks.

I thought that Z06 would do better than that.

The laptimes were considerably slower than what Randy got. But it gives us an honest answer to which car is fastest out of the box. 5 laps really isn't enough to get to grips with the cars and their set up.

While Americans didn't accept germ theory till the 1880's ...long after Europe ...a primitive hatred of Americans denies their engineering prowess. Many wealthy and upper middle class Americans are lean and intelligent and have normal sized butts.
The ZO6 has a great sound but the 488 sounds incredibly great for a turbo.
People flatulate after wine and pasta in an 1900 year old city too

The ACR is definitely a faster track car than the Vette and is sophisticated for a Viper with 6 suspension settings but inferior infotainment to the Vette or the exotic yet Murican GT350r. The Vette is equal or slightly inferior to the 488 on 80 % of tracks. This would suggest that the ACR is the fastest car under 600 k around a track but one must not jump to conclusions.
One can safely say the 488 ,Huracan, ZO6 and ACR ARE the fastest track cars under 600k with the GT350r,GT3rs,ZL1, R8 V10 plus and cheaper McLarens a tier below them.
The Corvette is distinct in appearance due to its low slung pushrod engine.

Yet the 488 came out after the Z06. What a stupid comment

it has nothing to do with whether it came out before or after the z06, the thing is that chevy looks dated already be it a stingray, z06 or the next zr1, while ferrari will always be timeless.

you must be kidding yourself if you think because the chevy came out before the 488 is a bit uglier, it's not even a close comparison or if you want to a head 2 head test on the exterior why not try the german frog das 911 minus the nazi logo.

chevy loud very loud = some fatass american taking a dump after having dinner at a south asian restaurant

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPWG4W9WvKs

listen to a ferrari from the 80's to be fair with you and your childish comparison (so that you won't be coming up with more stupid excuses about newer ferraris is not fair) that no pos chevy will ever sound like it with or w/o aftermarket exhaust

It was in an old magazine I bought after Casino Royale but lost a move ago along with a really old one with a Consulier vs 250 bhp c4 and a 0-150-0 challenge where the XKR took 44 seconds double an SVR.
