Thanks guys.

 

We have achieved our goal.

The fastest Supercharged GT500 / Super Snake without Nitrous in the World!

 

 

 

Is there one with N2O, that's faster???

 

Congrats on the time and record. What kind of HP were your final numbers, to get it up to that speed?

 

There is a guy in Germany (on TS) claiming 196 and change with a mildly modified GT500 (pulley, tune, etc.). He's shows a screen shot of his GPS so SOMETHING is going that faxt but with a reletively stock GT5? It makes me wonder.

 

My eventual goal is 190+ and I keep getting told it's going to take a big tailwind to get there (with a FRPP Whipple 2.9L and tune) and my car is WAYYYYY more modified than a pulley and tune.

 

What's the deal? I KNOW that the faster you want to go the more money it takes and it is expotential. We have a Brad Hadman tube chassis, glass bodied '55 Chevy Shoebox that runs in the low 7's and to get from the 9's to the 7's took a HUGE sum of money. It was cheap getting into the 12's, then more to get to the 10's and a TON to get into the 9's then we hit the limit of the chassis and had to go with a complete different combo...and over 700 cubic inches, big dollar heads and headwork, etc. (naturally asperated).

 

So I'm curious what it took to get a brick to push through the air to 200+ MPH.

 

 

TIA,

Phill

There's two with NOS that were slower!

 

'Adding nitrous to your car doesn't make it fast.Right knowledge about the components and driving skills matter.'

Right,Revan?

Nitrous makes more torque which equates to more power. Not quite following your point.

 

Yeah,I know.But whats the use of that nitrous if the driver never drove anything above a Crown Vic lol.

True. Most of the guys on here have driven a litte more than a Crown Vic but I get your point.

You did all that stuff in a '07? :worship: Hats off,man!

EDIT: Where did you get those alloys? Robert and I've been talking about a SS used by the NeedForSpeed crew and it had the same alloys.

I guess I just will never be good at math; but when I think about it crutially, why can't the super snake easily reach 200mph? To me, a performance package super snake should have a top speed well over 200mph if it wasn't buffered electronically.

Except for this one little caveat...

 

They achieve their top speed in 1-Mile and shut down in a 1/2-Mile.

One word: Aerodynamics.

 

There is a point at which all the horsepower in the world won't get you past "the wall". The Mustang body has all the aerodyamics of A BRICK (seriously).

 

500-540 HP will get a Shelby GT500 to about 185 mph. It took C. Van Collier over 1000HP (twice as much) to get it to 204 mph (20mph faster).

 

The Super Snake body is less aerodynamic than a factory Shelby with the power dome hood. The frontal area is *incresed* with the SS hood and the quarter window "scoops" don't help any either (the side scoops aren't too bad but they DO dirty up the side-board of the body). The only thing that makes a Super Snake "slicker" is that it is 1" to 3" lower (depending on which suspension package you get) than a factory stock GT500 so there is slightly less frontal area. Lower a standard factory GT500 and it will be more aerodynamic than a equally lowered Super Snake.

 

Like it or not, that's basic physics.

It was those aerodynamic issues that killed the Cobra and forced Shelby/Ford to do the Daytona Coupe. I can attest that the Cobra is worse than driving a brick. With the stock windshield it'd just as well be a 4x8 piece of plywood.

Plus,the SS hoodscoopes are fake (not functional).

That's awesome guys.

 

I have a question though... I know a lot of guys here have commented that a GT500 with the same mods as a Super Snake will never be a Super Snake (which I get) but at what point does a Super Snake that is modded A LOT stop being a Super Snake??

 

I mean doesn't the same logic hold true that if you fundamentally change the car (wheels, blower, engine, fuel system) that it is no longer an original Super Snake?

 

I mean if a guy took a GT500 and did all the mods that Van has done to this Super Snake and it went just as fast there are those on this board that would say, "Well yes it's faster but it will NEVER be a Super Snake."

Only the 2010-up...............

 

Van's is a 2007-2009, fully functional.
