This is very interesting. Would love to hear more opinions from people with a lot of experience drag racing their car on how they configure their settings before launching.

Watch race 3 angle 1 at 9:00min where the weight shifts to the back for a slower 1.634 60’ . With Your R888R setup id expect consistant 1.59 60’ at worst.
The 1.45 60’ was amazing. Also noticed your runs are only a few mins apart so maybe some heatsoak coming into play on the other runs? Again im no expert just a thought to consider.

Congrats on a very impressive build and way to represent the Porsche Brand. I do have one question, I noticed that there seem to be a lot of transmission whine? Did you have something done to the transmission?

Nah...no sense in making a 2 min YouTube video of 1 single run. Had we ran several times I could have at least made decent content. I asked Mike for another race but he said he had to check the tune and next thing I knew you guys were gone. lol

Didn't really want this thread to turn into P vs Mac I'll love to own a Mac anytime what I'm really saying is this build of a P car is perfect as a daily driver being an awd and having an extra seats for amputees, that's all and oh the cost! The 720 s is fast bone stock no doubt.

That whine is likely the R888R tires...both cars had them and on mine they sounded the same

I am going to make a video soon about the cost of the kit. Stay tuned for it. A lot of people are asking me this.

I like the VTG set up just from the OEM stand point. It makes me feel good knowing I am running a Porsche turbo. Not saying aftermarket is bad, but I personally like the OEM stuff which is why you don’t see my car with any aftermarket suspension/ wheels. Just my preference.
