Bad day for Vboxing.. First, I tried to run the car like 5 or 6 times, and each time except for 1, the damn vbox shut off.. The power cable broke when I sent it out to use at the Miami Mile. I got this new top heavy universal cable and the slightest movement in the cigarette lighter shuts it off.. I dont know if it would still record the run until shut off?

2nd off it was very windy tossing the car all around... Same road I tested the Lp560 on, dead flat, approx 65 degrees..

This run was done on reg mode which boosts 15psi on pump gas..

0-60= 3.3 ( lots of wheelspin) (3.5 stock)
0-100= 7.7 ( full second faster than when i was stock)
1/4 11.5 @ 122.8 (stock mph was 117.8)


Im certain I could better this under better circumstances.. Lowering the tire presure would help alot as its set at 50psi in the rear and 43 upfront.. Next Ill try it on sport mode, which bumps boost to 17psi on pump gas...

Is it me or does 50psi and 43psi (respectively) seem really, really high? My dealer usually has my pressures set to the high 30's on the fronts and low 40's on the rear. Maybe I need to add some pressure? :)

Still, 0-60 in 3.3 and an 11.5 in the 1/4 isn't too shabby. I'm sure you've been asked 1000 times, but how does the 997 compare to the TT Gallardo?

There is no comparison between the 2 cars inmo.. The Gallardo is 100x the car .. That being said the Porsche is great fun, and better for day to use as you dont come out to find 10 idiots sitting on your hood taking pictures of themselves.

Some people are completely clueless. I would be hard pressed no to give them some ballistic counseling.

Also, those times are pretty impressive but being cooler now, I'd lower the tire pressure to 35 on all four corners. Then increase until you find your sweet spot. Good Luck!!

FYI Brainiac, I was referring to the people on the hood of his car taking pictures as the clueless ones.

Dont really understand what you mean? Is that what was going on by the park? A fur protest? As for pics are you insinuating that I drove up and down Rodeo to have pics taken of me? Its closer to I drove down Rodeo to see if the new Mclaren dealer was open, and then I drove home.. As for pictures, of course I dont care if people takes pics.. I just care when they are sitting on your car or touching it.

Was that your black Porsche parked out there? The one with the horrible looking 14ft tall wing? Looks good appart from that.

If Id of known you were there I would of stopped by. I thought the dealer was open, but it is not. Doesnt even look remotely close to opening.. I had heard they had some grand opening event there, but I guess not.
