k wait explain the power to weight ratios on this. when it says 0.75, is it saying that the T1 has 3/4 as much power as it does weight? because I thought it was something like 1.03 times as much power than weight. like it was something like just as many horsepower as it had pounds. explain why it says 0.75?

the SR8LM is loud but not to loud, the noise limit for street legal cars is 95db in a drive by test, at the northloop they have three points were they test the noise level, cars with broken exhust or cars that are to loud get black flag and have to leave the track

Because people live right next to the track...... most tracks in the UK have a drive by noise test before cars are allowed on track days.

don´t belive they let the Caparo drive the northloop, they have pretty strict noise level limits and a standart Caparo is simple to loud.

Well in the ecoty it states that caparo will take the T1 to the Nordschleife this or next spring to try and smash the radicals record. Lets hope all goes to plan.
