Driving that pocket rocket at max speed would scare the shit out of me 😂

"Spéirling would likely run of juice after few short laps and would not be able to complete single flying lap ...

Thanks but the CT scans don't lie and the chemo stopped working so the writing is on the wall. I'm ...

Thanks man yeah it's not until you get really crook that you appreciate how important one's health is..

Thanks for your kind words...

Ok i guess we'll eventually find out what it's really capable of but i'm more interested in seeing what the ...

Yep and it doesn't work for me but they'll have no problems selling them...

Anyone with even a small amount of taste will say that the rear end looks ugly

Yeah apparently the 919 will have hybrid power more often on tight tracks due to instant recovery from one corner ...

The Valkyrie Pro has a similar power to weight as the 888hp Porsche 919 Hybrid (Mk III) which has a ...

Yeah i guess if they were going to utilise max power they wouldn't have had the passenger in there. I ...

Looks like the Wikipedia site needs updating. The CART cars were bloody fast...

But then again the F1 unofficial record at Laguna Seca was set my Marc Gene Ferrari F1 Test Driver in ...

Where did you read that?

Like i said we'll need to wait and see and you might be surprised🤔

You can't ride a Latvian horse?? You must've led a rather sheltered life😝

There's bugger all chance that the AMG One could go under the bridge at 345km/h at the 6:29 minute mark ...

Generation Z probably wouldn't even know what a stick shift is let alone how to drive it😂

I timed the Valkyrie Pro Laguna Seca lap at 1:21 and acceleration from 141-220 km/h in 3.5 sec.

Yep now all Mr Zelks has to do is stick it in the modified category

It appears hostboy has a rather distorted view of the world😂

Hey no worries. I may not agree with all of your opinions but you're definitely more knowledgeable than most of ...

Once again you are overestimating the the difference between Cup2's and Cup2R's at the Nurb. The Jaguar XE SV Project ...

It's difficult to say how different the Cup2 N2 is to the current Cup2R without insider knowledge about the compounds ...

Me confused?? 😂 Michelin Cup2R's weren't available then... https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/porsche-911-gt2-rs-record-nuerburgring-nordschleife-sports-cars-road-approved-14277.html

I should've said that mine is modded with 500+hp but even a stock XR6 Turbo will be close...

"Can it really beat McLaren Senna being this heavy?" Good question and even though it's about 300kg heavier it will ...

That does not translate to the Nurb. You are inferring that the Manthey Racing mods make no difference to the ...

Under no circumstances will the Michelin Cup2R's amount to a 10 sec advantage over the Cup2's at the Nurb. You ...
