F***in Magazines

I wont say what magazines, but when one magazine tests a car, in this case it's the CC, they said 0-60 in 3.7, 0-100 in 5.5, and that they seen 1.5 lateral acceleration theirselves, and TWO other magazines say that 0-60 is right, but 0-100 in 8.9, 1.15 lateral g, WTF, it would'nt take twice as long to accelerate 40 mph more. and when they say the SRT-10 does the 1/4 in 12.1, no fuckin way, the old Vipers could do that, as Viper 10 has stated that people are running STOCK GTS VIPERS in 11.7, and the new one is more powerful, lighter, better tires on the rear and the same gear ratios. I dont think the faggit ass editors should be testing cars, they OBVIOUSLY dont know how to drive or what they're doing, they only know how to pull you long big cheesy ass words. please somebody shoot them, can we ever get honest specs of it. and also while i'm bitchin the editors out, they seem to have a big problem with the Vipers if ya ask me, they criticize it in a way that you can't understand it but they do. the just dont like it!! stupid bastards:devil:

I think GTS's usually do 11.9 max. I had a video of a ACR car doing 11.8 stock at best. If you go to dodge-vipers.com they have a video of a black SRT-10 doing 11.8. I'm sure it could do better then that.

I hate how magazines will compare a F150 to a Chevy 3500 and then say the 3500 is a better truck.

I hate to tell you this, but that Diablo isn't real, its a replica.

I dunno man it looked pretty real to me, it got a terrible launch though.
What was it like a 13 or 12 second run? Thats probably not normal for a Lamborghini.

I've seen Countach's replica's but I've never seen a Diablo replica. Not to mention using that same purple color the Lamborghini's use.

sorry jay, I wont do it again.

I've seen the video of the Diablo and Viper, still have it, I think that Viper ran a 12.48, and the Diablo ran like a 13.86 or sumthin. BOTH cars had a terrible launch.

Yeah they really did. That Lamborghini after it launched looked like it was trying to get in gear.

I haven't seen the video, but remember that Diablo's weigh over 4,000 lbs. They are not fast out of the hole, but watch out when you get to 120+ mph, because they do accelerate once they are in their sweet spot. I know several Diablo owners personally.

Why is the Diablo slow off the line??
Besides it's weight.
