Guys, I'm trying to find something out here. Who currently has the fastest (i.e. mph) GT500 in the country. I recall last year that Evolution Performance had the fastest. Do they still hold the crown?

Additionally, who has the quickest (i.e. e.t.) GT500? Maybe that is Evolution Performance as well.

Let me know and thanks. I'm doing a quick comparison of cars that have put down the numbers. I'll do my own research for performance parts.

evo 1/4th mile. [email protected]
they are currently working on a TwinTurbo setup.

not sure on top speed. I have seen a video of a guy on the autobahn and I think he was topped around 210mph. Not sure if he was maxed out or not.

Is there a track in the USA that can measure the top speed of a car besides at The Bonnyville salt flats ?
Hmmmm, not sure about that one; however, I wasn't talking about all out GT500 top speed. I'm referencing the fastest recorded "mph" through the 1/4 mile.

Two cars can have the same "e.t." but the "mph" is often different as wheel spin during launch often accounts for this fallacy.

Thanks Guys

JJ, Evo's recorded [email protected], was that actually with their TT car or the Supercharged one. You referenced "they are currently working" does that mean they are working the bugs out to acquire a faster time.

If this is there TT car that s a whole different ball game as I'm only talking Supercharged. I'm pretty sure by now you guys have figured out what I'm trying to do. I would love a 9-second GT500.

Oh, 210mph, I think you mean 210kph right. Damn, I think at 210mph, the engine would magically jump out of the engine compartment and rest.:thinkerg:

Evo has not even finished the TT car yet and when they got the 9.34 with the SC car they were having traction problems at launch so there's more left in the chassis still. The 210 was MPH not kph.

Their is another guy that works for a performance shop that has always claimed better numbers than EVO. He is on Team Shelby and he is very arrogant, I don't remember his name. He always posted his results and they were better, but the shop was not well known so most people never saw their results.


I believe his user name is NX338 and believe the shop is Karls East Coast, not sure that is correct?
