    We have seen various test numbers for both of these cars. We know they are stupid fast in a straight line. The P1 for example does 0-60 in 2.6 seconds and blasts through the 1/4 mile in 9.8 @ 148.9 as tested by MotorTrend. The same source got 0-60 in 2.4 seconds for the 918 Spyder and a 10.0 @ 145.2 1/4 mile time. Those two tests were done on different days and what the numbers establish is that both accelerate at a rapid pace. These supercars are not dragsters. They are built to be the absolute quickest around a roadcourse and McLaren claims its rear wheel drive P1 (which is considerably lighter than the all wheel drive 918) goes around a roadcourse faster than anyone. Well, EVO put this to the test. The test course is pretty tight and fairly short with laptimes just over a minute. Regardless, no complaints here about seeing these two heavyweights tested in the same place at the same time. So what happens? Well the heavier all wheel drive Porsche offering more torque beats the lighter McLaren P1 by 2/10's of a second. Now, why is that? The cars are close in performance obviously but the P1 on paper has the advantage. The issue boils down to traction and the 918 offered more of it. McLaren decided to send EVO a new set of tires so they could do the test with the P1 again. This time, the Pzero Corsa tires were replaced with Pzero Trofeo R tires. With the new tires grip and traction were improved and the P1 in similar, but different, conditions improved by over a second over its previous time as well as the 918 Spyder: The McLaren P1 wins but after a tire change showing just how big of a difference a simple set of tires can make. Porsche did not bother sending different tires or a crew to help they simply let their car do what it does. Ferrari apparently just watched both from the sideline. The P1 is the quicker car around the roadcourse although it clearly needs to be prepped to do so. The 918 Spyder by virtue of its all wheel drive seems like it is more forgiving on more courses and conditions. They're both spectacular machines regardless of which gains a tenth here or there. Porsche 918 Spyder specification Engine V8, 4593cc, plus 95kW and 115kW electric motors Max Power 875bhp @ 8600rpm Max Torque 940lb ft @ 6600rpm 0-60 2.8sec (claimed 0-62) Top Speed 211mph-plus (claimed) McLaren P1 specification Engine V8, 3799cc, twin-turbo, plus 131kW electric motor Max Power 903bhp (combined) @ 7500rpm Max Torque 664lb ft (combined) @ 4000rpm 0-60 2.8sec (claimed) Top Speed 217mph (limited)

    So its been 4 weeks+ now with the same issues with posting, you cant edit pics, you are locked out of your own posts, once you make a post its set in stone, the list goes on, SteveAZ voices his frustrations last night as well, I just went to adjust out black Friday post and its of course impossible. You keep saying you are working on it, but its literally been more than a month with the same issues. When are these things going to be fixed?

    I think this would qualify. Surprising most of these bikers get away with this. Apparently they think a lot of themselves because on Youtube they are begging for likes. In my opinion some of them deserve to get shot off their bikes for this, given how easy it is in the USA to get shot for any other threatening action towards the police and the general public... Text on youtube: INSANE motorcycle stunt riders get chased by the police helicopter and patrol cars for riding wheelies, drifting swing multiple lanes plus doing other stunts on the street. A group of stunt riders performing extreme freestyle motorcycle stunts and tricks on public street's and highway's get the attention of law enforcement. Police chase a large group of bikers running from the cops. Motorcyclist lead police officers chasing them on wild high speed pursuit. Police patrol cars at multiple times our only a few feet away from motorcycles performing drifts and wheelies throughout the entire police chase. Law enforcement use all the resource at there disposal to try and stop bikers evading arrest police even bring out a helicopter aka ghetto bird to spot light bikes running from the police patrol cars on the ground. You'll see one sport bike rider wreck while attempting to wheelie with cops only a few feet away. The stunt rider crashes while being chased by police cruises and helicopter spot light him above. Bike Vs Cops on the street bikers battle to out run law enforcement. A few of the stunt bike riders our eventually caught and arrested by police but most of the stunt bike riders eventually get away and out run the police by going through a tunnel under the highway to escape all police including helicopter or ghetto bird!
