Found a vid on YouTube that im very skeptical about and have posted this in the trackside section cause im curious what 1/4 mile it could run based on the vid and see if its unrealistic. My guess is either he's sped the video up, or most probably ran the car down a steep hill.... idiot!!!

For instance he does 0-130km/h in 9 secs which is fukin fast, considering in Fordfreaks latest 14.3 effort at 660ft he was doing 121km/h in 9.2 secs.

Give this Youtuber heaps of s**t cause his description reckons his Aurion is faster than a "Bombadore" and "Bord" !!!!

Lol, I timed it's 0-100km/h at about 5.5-5.7s, which I don't think a stock Aurion would be capable of.

That's as nearly as fast as my GT-P did in factory stock form.

0-100 - 5.842s
1/8mi - 9.065s@130km/h
1/4mi - 13.885s@166km/h

(that was with a s**t launch, 60ft = 2.353s)

So calling s**t.

i've been in an aurion before and when he booted it, I was very dissapointed. I think that 200kw is all computer locked to keep front wheel traction. vid is definately not the same as when I was in one.

That doesn't really look that quick on the video.
I'm only running a 13.9, and there's no way in hell that Aurion's speedo needle moves as quick as i've seen mine do. I thought stock Aurion's would only pull a flat 15 quarter or thereabouts.

Yeah ive heard that before too, but it aint gonna make it do 0-130km/h in 9 secs like is shown in the vid. With that sort of time he was looking at a flat 14 or even high 13, dont think so :P

My bet is theyve found a very steep hill and run it down there, i'll try and do the same and post a link up of my 5 sec falcon :wink: :lol:

Second thoughts, im sure hes sped up the video footage, you can hear the high pitch of the motor that its been sped up, and also the handshaking of the camera is sped up....
