Quote from: Duplode on January 05, 2008, 04:06:16 AMThree questions to Mark about his creation and its Wiki article:1. It is a fact that the official data about Speedgate understimates its acceleration (0-60) by a factor of about 50%.. I've added the acceleration I measured to the infobox, but haven't overwritten your text yet - is it fine to do it, or you intend to surprise people when they get to test the car? 2. What kind of stunt is needed to get Speedgate to 245mph? I've raced a pretty fast track with lots of jumps and only reached, with quite a bit of effort, 227mph...3. If you could choose a default colour for Speedgate other than P962's blue from the available ones, which would you pick?

Do you plan to tune the rev-meter to match the unique torque characteristics of Speedgate, that is, the high torque zone with power peak at about 7500-8000rpm followed by a long low-torque tail extendng ro the redline? Perhaps you might define a "greenline" in adddition to the usual redline (in case you desire to give drivers tips on the torque curve shape, that is).
