I dont know maybe from 50-130 with RB's E85 and meth. I mean your putting up a $200,000+, supercar. I personally havent ran any. Its possible a 335i/135 FBO+ alot of octane and a good amount of boost, you would win....but in my eyes what about after even lets say 160ish? Thats where that cars "happy" place is over 160mph lol. Just two completely different cars to compare too ya know?

You don't have to beat him. You just have to be close enough to make him question the extra 100k he spent.

This is a silly argument. Even if a BMW with a ton of mods can beat a Ferrari, the Ferrari guy is not going to question his decision to buy a Ferrari.

My buddy has a retarded fast Civic that will shit all over my 135i in a race but I wouldn't be caught dead driving that fart can around town and it certainly doesn't make me question my purchase.

Driven a few supercars, perks of the job. I wouldnt question money spent vs some of the big boys of the supercar world. The Ferrari, Lambo, Bently and such. Anyone can build a car to outrun it, but still it wont be a Ferrari and so on. We can build cars to outperform an M3, but at the end of the day, its not an M3. They have thier own features that make our cars the honda civic of thier track days.

60-230. It was a fair battle. Then it started pulling away gradually. FBO + meth + MT

F430's really aren't that fast..I have run a few and pulled them each time no problem from any speed, I wish I had a camera to record it. At best they are usually a mid to low 12 second car.

no they arent. dont get me wrong, the bmw vs ferrari debate is retarded, the f430 isnt that fast, so lets move on. but ferraris arent "that good", i didnt walk away from driving a f430 desperately wanting one, infact i was a little disappointed.

Pretty sure Ferrari F430 depending on trim can trap about 120 MPH. A family member had one and now has a GT3RS. I liked the ferrari a little more since the Porsche is kind of slow. Cool, but slow. Great on a road course though.

Not sure if you are serious? The spiders can trap 117-118 with a good driver and they weigh more. A scuderia is even lighter then the regular coupe. I dont see why it cant get to 118-120 but no sense arguing over a a couple MPH


Here is an older 06 convertible doing mid 117's. http://www.dragtimes.com/Ferrari-F43...slip-8379.html

I know my stock z06 is faster then a f430 but I still might take the f430 cause the car has that much more class and exotic feel.

I was referring to your 120mph trap..yes you are correct they trap around 117...also your gt3rs is a much better car.

Here is my buddies gt3 with a 4.0 stoker cup car motor before it got tuned...bad video and not a great race, the f430 took off first

Around Fontana I constantly posted times around 1-2 seconds faster than an F430 that was in my group. I also only had around 330whp + 100oct and the Ferrari was stock + 110. I could out brake him, out maneuver him (even with shitty V2s and Falken tires, lol), but he did get me on the straights (did have 100whp less than normal). Can't wait to show my stuff at Buttonwillow on the 30th. Hope there are a couple supercars out there.

As for straight line, who the F cares.

Cool

I have a video with my 335i, Ferrari scuderia, M6 Vert, Porsche Panemera, and 2 GT3RS.



Just going to a meet.

The porsche is a great car no doubt.

My 335i is was faster then all of these cars. My car was trapping about 117-118 in this video.

Edit- I didnt race the scuderia so I'm not sure about that.

So now you are all referring to a F430 Scuderia ..the original question was what the OP need to hang with a F430.

The fastest Scuderia on dragtimes ran 11.6
