Factory Drag Racing: SHO vs SRT-8 Vs A6 Quattro
In a bit of a slap in the face to both domestic and a foreign luxury automaker. Ford showed off their twin turbo direct injected 2010 Taurus SHO competing in a test of straight line acceleration against the top model Chrysler 300 and a comparably equipped Audi saloon. Who won? Watch and see.
2010 SHO vs 2010 Camaro SS
In Luskville, west of Ottawa, Canada. Second portion of 1/4 mile was in bad shape, very bumpy! The trap speed are slower by about 2mph because of that...
I started late R/T of .349 for SHO and .03 for the SS :
SHO = 12.74 at 108mph (intake, Exhaust, suspension and tune LMS stage 4+)
SS = 12.85 at 110mph (intake and tune)
We ran all day together and I was consistent with my 12,7's, but he ran anywhere between 12.76 and 13.85, depending on his launch. On that race, he had a good launch.... As for the SHO, it is AWD,so no excuses. : )
Audi S4 vs. Taurus SHO
Two new-age twin turbo and supercharged fighters (yes the new SHO is an EcoBoost twin turbo). This SHO was tearing it up all night - then the Audi came along to make things interesting...
2010 SHO vs 2007 Magnum SRT8
Magnum had a better reaction time (.04 vs .19), I caught up with him and had a better time 12.81 at 107.17 vs 12.89 at 108.21), but because I started late, it doesn't show that way. I have been running between 12.77 and 12.83 all day, him between 12.79 and 12.98... We had good races, cheers Yohan!
