I guess so but ask him if he'd rather go out peeing himself in an OAP home next to a load of other gibbering idiots peeing themselves or make the headlines with a fireball doing a good impression of Hiroshima.that's assuming the parachute works
Interesting SA I visit santa pod on occasions and it always amazes me just how quick and noisy some of these cars are. Now I don't want you to laugh your socks off but I have been driving an F type R a bit recently the quick one with 500+ hp 4x4 and 0-60 in a tad over 3 secs with 200ish max. Now to me this jag is scaringly fast it feels like it is attempting to pull the tarmac from the road.
Now the silly question.... how does that compare with the feelings you get in your bullet car. Just interested...
not quite but not far away and there is a family campsite just behinds the pits. and a discount for caravan club members I believe.
Last time I went to Santa Pod it was either '68 or '69, used to camp in the padock with all the compeditors, bet you can't do that now.
Thanks SA that sounds incredible. At least you don't have to set the speed limiter to 80 to hold onto your license..Interestingly there is not the same sensation of sinking into the seat, very little upholstery if any and being strapped in tight mean you become part of the car, and as we attempt to only go in a straight line (not always successfully) its just pure acceleration.
The car above takes 1.1 seconds to travel the first 60 feet and to around 4 to 5 seconds for the first 220 yard by which time it is going 145 -150 mph, 1/4 mile is around 8 seconds with this combination with a best of 7.9 @ 170ish mph. not bad for a std block from a 50 + year old design.
We have fun.. Personal best is 7.4 @197 mph when i drove someone elses car (supercharged) blue car is normally aspirated.
