My ES750RS vs Dragtimes McLaren 720S

All about my 1 of 1 build with ES/AIM Performence and a drag race with Dragtimes McLaren 720S.

What...a...car!!!

Keep in mind the car came off the dyno in 30*F weather in NJ and straight to the track in 80+*F weather in FL with only 1 log in-between. Canít wait to actually dial it in.

Canít thank ES & AIM performance enough for this build! Enjoy the video!

(Skip to the 6 minute mark to get to the action)

Thanks! I was at 31 psi in the rear and 41 in the fronts on every race. I probably should have adjusted as the night went on and the temperatures cooled, but I didnít.

Sport plus, firm suspension off, TC off, not in manual mode.

If you wouldíve driven a 720 you wouldnít have change your mind. Theyíre on another level of badassness. Love me some Porsche, but they arenít on the same level as Mclaren on the wow factor.

720S launches are very impressive for RWD, good runs ! You got the trap to go 9.3-9.4 so there is definitely more in it.

For sure. This was the first time running the car. It went off the dyno in 30* weather right to the track in FL in 80* weather with 1 log to ES. Car isnít even dialed in yet.

Lots more to come on this car. Stay tuned.

The "wow" factor is why I didn't want a McLaren or a Lamborghini. I want to drive my car, how, where and when I want, without being hassled much. And yet, have the elegance and prestige of the brand.

This is exactly why I picked up the 911. Driving the Huracan around all the time got overwhelming.

Itís REALLY hard the best the overall package and excellence of a 911 Turbo. Love it!

I don't know if you remember that I told you to try and grab the right lane. The track prep on the left lane wears out really fast, and it's less sticky, that's why your launches got worse and his were still OK. Great win with the chips against you, I don't think Dragtimes will be posting that video, lol

You did tell me that and I completely forgot about it!!! Man it was driving me crazy as to why I started spinning more and more as the night went on. Your guess may have been my problem? Others in the right lane certainly werenít spinning like I was and now itís starting to make sense. I also never once adjusted the tire pressure so I am sure that didnít help either.

Anyway, thanks and Iíll certainly remember for next time.

I found in my car sport mode firm suspension mode on hooked much better on 1/4 mile with launch control. With it off I found on hard launch the weight transfer to the rear effected the traction in the front tires significatly. Some of the more expericed drag race guys here might chime in here if on or off is better.
