Cars that let you down in the 1/4 mile

Post by BlackSmith0903 on Sat Feb 18, 2012 1:23 pm

I-C5 & myself have tried to find a few "Sleeper Cars" & they turned out to be big let downs. Example the Buick GNX for I-C5 & the Spyker for myself. What cars did you have high hopes for only to see it crash & burn or run way slower than you expected?

The Trans Cammer Mustang, I know it is heavy but I still had high expectations for it.

Looks like a full on dragster but weighs as much as a dump truck Laughing


I've had high hopes for the Supra & Mustang both of which can get well above 1000hp IRL...

The McClarin f1,it has good power and great looks but its such a beast to tune and drive also the Cerbera speed 12 ,what a monster but getting it to hook up is tough.

You guys are gonna think this is lame but I'm very disappointed in the vw bora. I tuned it thinking I had found a good sleeper to compete with evos and stis. That thing wouldn't even put out 400hp when I was done. I foolishly held out with hopes and expectations of breaking 11s with it. But pffffft! I fell asleep before the end of my run. Real piece of s***that car is.

Supra- everytime I race this car I think why can it be like the hpa golf....
GNX- BIG turd this turned out to be. I was thinking DEFINITE 10.1 maybe even a high 10.0... 10.4...84. Yahhh your going to be collecting dust.
Bora Jetta- and I thought I was the only one who wanted to tune a chicks car haha. I to had high hopes but when I saw it peaked at just 335hp my hopes dwindled. And then they died when I couldn't even manage a HIGH 11. That's a for sure 12 car.
Zr1 and Zonda 7.3- I'm not really disappointed as more have questions why these two 900+hp cars can only manage a mid to high 9.2.

I'm disappointed of the BMW 330i. The best I've gotten in that car is a 11.9 with 410 hp. I thought it could go at least up to 500 horsepower. Gay

A Mustang with the right setup can push 4500hp. No bull.

It's weird that it's a V8 yet you can't turbo or supercharge it

the ZR1 let me down with that power,low weight,and fat tires out back it should easily run real low 9.100's but instead high 9.280's

The callaway C12. Such good power to weight ratio. I was expecting it faster than that years vette since everything is better. And 723ish Ho and 1000kg I hung but it is a slow 10's car. I was expecting supra times at least. Such a disappointment..
