Colorado Springs 1/2 Mile Event

Recommended Posts

UGR's bringing a lot of very fast cars to this particular event. What do you think will be their fastest trap speed? 260? 265? I believe the yellow Huracan will hit 260 mph +.

According to Gidi, when the yellow car ran 257 it was not at X3 level yet. So since Indiana summer 2017, there have been some upgrades made to that car. Given the right track conditions a 260mph is doable. Their tuner John Reed is also confident it should be able to do 262 at least.

 

It will also be interesting to see what the DCT car is capable of right now. With 2500WHP+ now it could reach 240s maybe even a 250!

Here's hoping we see some speedo footage of the yellow car at full tilt.

 

Yeah, Ive been waiting to see that as well! It would also be very cool if they release a VBOX graph of the full run if they achive a new world record like they did back when Bob Helms Black SL Gallrdo X1 car ran 234 in Florida. Like Kevin said it´s very difficult to actually dyno these cars at the level they´re at right now, but VBOX numbers and a speedo video are easy to make. Would hugely satisfy us number geeks :icon_thumleft:

Since the ETS GTR 255 mph piloted by Lucas will be at this event too I bet UR will be swinging for the fences. I bet we see a 265 mph this weekend!

Would also love to see what these cars are doing in the 1/4 mile as well. If I recall correctly they've been in the high 180's for some of the 24x-25x mph runs. Pretty insane for street cars on radials.

I hope they set a new record, but the altitude won't help things.

 

The air density actually helps with drag at this level. If the turbos have the overhead to cover the added airflow required at elevation cars can go faster with the reduced drag.

I wonder if they brought their X version DCT car out to that even.

 

KC showed it on his Instagram next to the yellow car. Im pretty sure that it was it. Martys car looks pretty similar, but i think I recognized it by its wheels

Makes me nervous for the drivers... Prayers going out to all!

No sir, that's Marty's car, he will be driving it and KC will be driving UR 4. They also brought Quberto (I believe, I may be wrong, saw it in the trailer) and a customers 1R Gallardo. I'll try and post their times as they run on my Instagram. @ur___55

Nope. No updates for today anymore. UGR took home first place with 244mph for the first day. Maybe more to come tomorrow

 

By the way....they had a pretty strong headwind this time. Maybe they could just go down the other direction of the runway tomorrow. 15-20mph headwinds are not helping at 250mph LOL

Shift Sector and Wannagofast should both consider putting down some prep from the starting line. To aid launches / 1st-2nd gear traction

 

Something like this:

 

 

 

Just remember in March how sticky the Royal Purple Raceway was. Your feet were glued to the ground and there were 0 traction issues for anyone

Qbert went 226, but it was spinning like crazy off the launch.

 

Saw Qbert on instagram with a nasty launch. I believe it was the 244 run.

Hey guys, the red car isn’t a DCT. We fought elevation issues all day with boost control and etc. The Drag965 Underground Racing Huracan only got one full shakedown pass at 244 in a big headwind. Seems like we have everything sorted and seem to be locked and loaded for tomorrow. Hopefully we get a couple of full passes with the power up. Way to strong of a headwind to make passes late in the day. Will update you guys tomorrow. Thnx

 

Qubert (Underground Racing R8) took the AWD win today.

No they stopped rolling onto the track. They are able to do some pretty crazy launches with these 6 speed sequentials! Even without the dct

Be safe guys! It’s always a lot of planning to get to this stage so I’m hoping for some decent weather. Break some records and come home safely. These HP levels are just mind blowing now.
