The sound of Underground Racing Twin Turbo's in Mexico - Video

Recommended Posts

Sooooo how do you like it?

It sounds amazing with the top down!

 

I love it, it's very addicting. Yesterday I went out and didn't want to come back in, ended up staying out almost three hours. I know it's not always about speed, which is why I like the Spyder, top down, cruising and being thankful for life. Knowing the ability to burst into speed if/when the time feels right is great. I think the sound from the video clearly shows there is no turbo lag occurring, the gears switching is so smooth whether you're hitting a run or just driving around town.

 

Saturday evening I took a couple local guys from the car scene for a ride. They both had ridden in the car before UR. They were expecting hard, rough shifts, just an overall beating of a ride. They both could not get over how the car felt the same, just as it did before UR. When I made a pass on the car, they were both in awe, could not believe the smoothness of the shifts and the way the car kept pulling through the gears, no lag, never letting up.

 

It's always talked about how so and so can do it cheaper, this or that kit is just as good as a solution. All in all you get what you pay for. Whether I am spending $40k or $140k, I want it done right and done by the folks who developed the product. I am not going to spend any amount of money for a kit that comes in a box that I take to a third party mechanic to have installed. Just because it's a "bolt on" kit, there's more to the installation. Even UR's bolt on kit, there's a reason they do the install themselves. They know the cars, during the installation, they do much more than just bolt on the kit which is why they don't market their product to third parties.

Superchargers = blah.... ;)

 

 

You just got the car back from UGR in March ... Probably still getting use to the additional power ...

 

Sooo ... I'm guessing in the video, you're on pump gas (turned down to about 1,000 hp at the tires) ...

 

Is that correct???

Yes sir, running 1100 on 93 pump.

Working with a local vendor to supply me with MS109 so 93 will have to do for now.

Are the stage 3s still using the 67mm precision turbos or have they started using the GEN 2 6870s?

 

I'll deter that for Kevin to answer. ;)
