    TX2K14 - Protomotive 3.8 liter 996 Turbo versus UGR Twin Turbo Audi R8 V10 roll on

    The videos from the first TX2K14 event of the year are beginning to trickle out and here is an interesting roll on match up. The camera car is a Protomotive built 996 Turbo with a 3.8 liter motor putting out whatever it is putting out to hit a best 1/4 mile trap speed of 151.8 miles per hour and a 60-130 sprint of 4.67 seconds. However much power it happens to make is a lot considering this Underground Racing built R8 5.2 V10 is at 1250 wheel horsepower and they go door to door.

    The R8 in the video is apparently Brandon Jacobs car that has shown 1831 horsepower to the wheels. It clearly is not running 1831 wheel horsepower and why it is at a claimed 1250 horsepower is anyone's guess. The Porsche 996 Turbo is definitely at 1000+ as well though.

    Traction is said to be an issue and the oval roll on although neat seems to be fairly short. The run is about 1500 feet meaning slightly more than a 1/4 mile. Definitely not enough distance for cars at this horsepower level.

    The headline is what made me click on the thread cause who wouldn't want to see it, but it was pretty anti-climatic. I guess I was just expecting more for a front page thread. It was still entertaining.

    Trust me I was expected more too with all the Texas 2K14 hype.

    Did they not have more space, or is it a safety thing because those cars are reaching crazy speeds in that short distance?

    edit: nvm just watched the vid its on a circle track

    The horsepower out at this event is borderline insane. It's funny how you can define quick/fast. 500hp? 1000hp? 1500? 2000hp? Where will this end? Click here to enlarge
