    I'm only ribbing you my good man, but to answer your other question from before, since the car is AWD traction is not really an issue up to an amazing 1100+HP to the wheels before needing traction control to really kick in. The only issue was the stock controls would shut the throttle bodies during hard acceleration because the car accelerated so fast under boost that the computer thought the tires were breaking loose. So some reprogramming had to be done to bypass and get the computer to realize the car is accelerating at a much faster rate then what’s programmed stock from the factory.

    *UPDATE*

    Underground Racing TT Superleggera

    From UGR...
    I thought I would share these pictures of the latest to be completed from Underground Racing. This is one of the first Lamborghini Superleggera R versions from Underground Racing. Jeff is going to have a lot of fun on the streets in San Antonio TX this TT Gallardo.

    This SL makes 1000+ WHP on pump gas (93 octane) We will test it on race gas once he gets here to check it out and go for a ride!
    Only 200 original miles on this beast!

    Huge thanks to Jeff S for letting us build this monster!

    I was unaware Underground was in Charlotte. Cool, I could use an 1000hp AWD car today with this snowy icey mess

    any videos of the dyno runs from any of the TT cars?

    Actually the TT systems dont add that much extra weight to the overall car, and considering they add 600+ usable/tunable HP to the car the little extra weight is never noticed. A light weight battery would have counter that some even.

    Not this car but other TT Lambo's

    Videos, without the YT text wraps.

    As far the rear bumper, that shot has become known as the "money shot" when they do their photo sessions, it's kept off on purpose for pictures then added on for testing.
    But I will give that one too you, that was a slick one...

    ...pssh – you think jd doesn’t know THAT?! Check his whip:



    BTW - I LOVE the pics of that parachute! What kind is it? Is it a Stroud? A Simpson? I think the car makes it look stupid.

    I don't own either. I would rather spend $10k on a moto than $300k on a car that is slower than the $10k moto.

    Two things come to mind.

    1. That's not one of the worlds best tuner cars.
    2. Anyone who uses HDR and uses it that poorly is hardly one of the worlds best photographers
    3. Desaturation like that is a tool of the amateur.

    300K? Not really...
    With the way the market is you can pick one up for mid to low 100's and depending what level of system you want it's anywhere from 40-65K. So altogether you're looking at low 200's at MOST for a completely built 1400+ HP drivable car that can run 9 second quarter’s day in and day out with minimum work and tuning.
    As far as the bikes, the guy who owns that orange one I posted has already put 3 or 4 GOOD/modded bikes under his belt on various boost settings with still more left on the table. Dont get me wrong, I love bikes myself but at those high end speeds I'd rather have 4 wheels instead of 2. ;)

    Eh, to each his own. My friends have tricked out STI's. I have a minivan and a few nice pedal bikes. They don't understand why I have the minivan or bikes. I don't understand why they don't have either of those. :0)

    I like the pchop of the dodge. Nice oil cooler and tow hook. I really like the watanabe wheels on the domestic van. Don't know if that would work out though.
    The A team van would be cool if i could launch it off all kinds of jumps.

    no, it was a movie about the ambulance drivers and their shenanigans
    it was a cheesy movie from the early 90's/late eighties

    How easy is it to get the bumper off of those things? First thing that came to my mind is that I would hate to have to clean and re-oil those air filters... :rolleyes:

    watching how they build the cars, it seems pretty easy as most bumper covers are

    I'm sure the turbos melt some nice access holes through the bumper.

    Sorry but car pics without big booty hoes doing suggestive poses in front of them (three point stance, dropping it while it is hot, etc...) are a major faux pas for me.
    FAIL!!

    He lambo gets to 250mph. Skip to the last 30 sec of the vid to see the start of his run.
