    tell us about your Exige 430 Cup Type 25 

     

    I love it! It is such a raw and unfiltered driving sensation! It feels like a karting but with 430 bhp. The titanium exhaust screams and the car is fast! This car is a keeper for me.

    it's is such a cool car with the green paint and yellow highlights 

    post some pics please

    McLaren 600LT Spider

     



















     

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yb4QlaDXABU

     

    (0-200 km/h) sprint time, it’s just 0.2 seconds slower than the Coupe’s, at 8.4 seconds.
    for a weight premium of just 50kg more than the 600LT and with no additional structural strengthening required.
    weighing roughly 220 lbs (100 kg) less than a stock 570S Spider.
    Once you’re ready to feel the wind in your hair, you can lower the powered retractable roof at speeds of up to 25 mph (40 km/h).
    a top speed of 201 mph (324 km/h) with the roof raised, or 196 mph (315 km/h) with it lowered.
    As for its Longtail silhouette, it’s created by the fixed rear wing, which generates the same 220 lbs (100 kg) of downforce at 155 mph (250 km/h) as it does for the Coupe version.

    Very beautiful and capable car. I'm still wondering what effect the Brexit will have an prices over here. Thanks for sharing kiss


    Re: 600LT

    We all knew the 600LT is coming, and we are now what it will look like, it's a secret that's not even a secret.

    Applauses for McLaren to do a Spyder/Convertible version, this is the Porsche GT3 Cab/Targa that people wanted but Porsche won't build.

    Very cool car, but after McLaren went to such extensive efforts to drop 100kg for the LT Coupe it seems a bit of a shame to add half of that back...

    Weight really is over rated in a street car.

    If this is a race car, then I would be livid if weights goes up even by 1kg, or 100g.

    But this is a street car, and for street cars, anything less than 100lb difference I don't even think about it. Heck, maybe even 200 lbs, which just means I got a passenger.

    This is likely correct. Tesla says in [1]: "FIREFIGHTING

    USE WATER TO FIGHT A HIGH VOLTAGE BATTERY FIRE. If the battery catches fire, is exposed to high heat, or is generating heat or gases, use large amounts of water to cool the battery. It can take approximately 3,000 gallons of water, applied directly to the battery, to fully extinguish and cool down a battery fire; always establish or request an additional water supply."

    [1]  https://www.tesla.com/sites/default/files/downloads/2016_Model_S_Emergency_Response_Guide_en.pdf


    Re: 600LT

    They need to find a different method to extinguish such fires because this is just insane (3000 gallons).

    Re: 600LT

    My (very limited) understanding is, that it is not possible to extinguish the fire, because it produces its own oxygen. The water is just used for cooling. The linked document says: "Battery fires can take up to 24 hours to extinguish. Consider allowing the battery to burn while protecting exposures."


    Re: 600LT

    The fire is so hot that it actually separates the H2 from the O in the H2O and then the O further feeds the fire.  Battery fires usually need special type of Foam to smother the fire


    Re: 600LT

    This owner prefers the 600LT over the 488 Pista. Hes going to sell the Ferrari.

    Pista has more bodyroll, understeer...and it's a bit too powerful for Nordschleife anyway.

    Re: 600LT

    I haven't watched, but he's selling because of bodyroll and understeer? Has he never heard about suspension setupsyes especially if he's doing trackdays, this shouldn't be new to him.

    He changed the Pista tires that day and it fixed the understeer. But overall he prefers the 600LT. It's more suited for track. Pista it's more enjoyable on the road, he says.

    But I guess the cost of tracking a Pista and the associated depreciation is a big part of his decision.

    Re: 600LT

    It seems that lost 2-3 secs when he scraped the front , which puts his time on par or very near to the GT3 RS.

    Splitting hairs really.

    But the GT2 RS rules, for those who can tame it.

    The center of gravity of that car is certainly between the legs of the driver.  Amazing performance from both
