Yeah, someone said something about that on the other forum and this is what MWR said.


No pics of the pan, it is basically jsut aluminum sheet from the front bumper to the back of the front subframe. It generated so much downforce it tried to rip through its mounts.

I thought about getting an exterior shot but my camera is not rated to 200mph. I wanted the noises mainly. The engine revs to 9500rpm though I shifted around 8900 on that run and only made it to 8600 in 6th gear.

I think we were fastest on the radar timing system which got me at 201mph.

I didnt mind listening, but it would have been fun to see the speedometer or something else. I still enjoyed the video.

damn... too bad my 5th or 4th gens will never see that kind of acceleration or speed

I have had the 5th gen gt hitting rev limiter in 5th... but i have no clue what they top at... speedo was no moving anymore
