How much HP does it take to go 257 in the 1/2 mile?


Recommended Posts

3000+chp I would guess.

 

Probably 2700+ or more to the wheels in the top gears to hit 255+

 

My logic: 1500 seems to put the cars around 208-215, 2000whp seems to put them around 230 +/-, so to gain an additional 27mph would require a significant power increase.

 

Hope I’m at least somewhat in the ball park

I would guesstimate about 3000 chp as well, +/- 5% or maybe a hair more. ETS ran 255 and has been relatively public about the power they are making (dyno video). Sure there is drag, frontal area, friction, traction and a whole bunch of other variables that come into play, but I feel at that level, the ability to push through air becomes the biggest hurdle, so I'd have to assume power levels are relatively close. I'd be surprised if it's more, and if anything would assume it's a little less due to superior aero. Let's go with 2,950 chp. Final answer.

1300 is 200

1800 gets you 217

2000 is like 225

Got to be close to 3000-3200 whp

 

 

These are at the wheels...

Damn with these power levels you wonder what these UGR beasts could've trapped at TI. It's a shame they were traction limited. With proper traction I would say 230+.

To make close to 3000whp I would suspect the turbos are 80+mm perhaps 8385s like the ones found in ets gtr. Who knows maybe twin 88s lol. But from what I read x versions are running 76mm precision turbos, I'm not entirely certain those turbos can provide more than 2800whp

Pretty obvious we are using the 83’s now I guess :)

Were gonna see in about 10 days what they´re truly capable off. John is already certain that 260 is doable on the yellow huracan :icon_thumleft:

I think the yellow car would need a grooved concrete runway to hit a 260 in the 1/2 mile and on top of that it would need a near perfect run. The next race in Texas IF we go will be tough to get traction on as it’s smooth black top (asphalt) with no grooves.:( Where the event (was) going to be would have been perfect as it was grooved concrete. They had to relocate the race for some reason.:(. We might wait until the Colordo race to go out again. We will see.

Wannagofast and Shift Sector should both consider to prepare the first 1320 feet or maybe the entire length of the half mile to improve traction. The cars attending should not be traction limited by the various surfaces. Put some VHT down and get those records geeze :icon_mrgreen:
