    Beautiful Drew!

    Only thing is, the 134mph trap and performance #s from AutoMag are a bit controversial. There's a big thread on this on LamboPower. We are estimating traps to be in the high 120s (127-129). Apparently according to M5Board videos, they are just a bit slower than the 550-2 Balboni, so the 458 will probably pull maybe a car on a regular LP560 which traps 123-127mph depending on driver/track/conditions.

    Agreed, but he beat the balboni in the 1st run, but like other vids from Gustav that one didn't make a lot of sense.

    Forget Gusfag, I will replace him soon enough. Regardless, your car is a beast. But I think I have a shot versus. the ESS car from a 40/50 roll.

    Thx bud, your car is impressive, especially for the power it makes, were you able to setup a day to run the ESS car?

    Thanks. I just landed back in the US today. So I will contact him tomorrow to see what the deal is. I'm getting pretty booked in terms of runs now (ESS M3, LM's RB335, a Superleggera, and some other stuff).

    I have no doubt in my mind the 458 can trap over 130+mph easily, based on the fact that it has a DCT tranny that is faster and less drive train loss then a Lambo. I mean if a corvette Z06 can trap those speeds with only 505hp more weight and only a manual tranny then the 458 should have no problems. M5board videos usually suck I take them with a grain of salt alot of times the drivers don't even know how to drive right. Theres always late starts or the drivers aren't in the right gear I'm quite sure thats what happened if the 458 lost to any form of the Gallardo /LP-560.

    I think 134 is a bit high but the car will be able to hit 130 mph from what I have seen.

    It probably is too early for us to decisively say where it traps but my belief is the car is slightly faster than the Balboni. Once we get some dyno numbers and more 1/4 mile tests we will have a better idea of where it really is.

    Just plain awesome Drew, that is a hell of a car to get to run.

    I really, really want to promote this up to the front page but like the ESS video the angle just doesn't show what happens clearly enough. No offense intended, I'm just surprised you guys didn't do more pulls with more shots.

    Thanks man, no worries about the front page, completely understand, I did get another run with my buddies Z06, this one was for laughs though, haha -

    Agreed, 134 does seem a tad high, but in good air you never know, another test showed 132MPH, 11 flat.

    Nice run.

    Man, I love the 458. Definitely more than the car of the moment. I have been saying this for awhile, one of the best Ferrari's in a long time, they really out did themselves.
