On a 500 horse car with TRACTION, your looking at absolutly torching the new 997 twin's 0-60 time.

I just use the 997 as a benchmark, but in reality, the 997 has a good 500 lbs or more on a stock 930. But the only way to get a 500 hp+ 930 to hook is drag radials/slicks and really stiff rear springs/t-bars. Eddie Bello used to lift the wheels off the ground and he use Toyo street tires with 550 LB rear springs. 9.13 at 150/160 mph
Zero camber should help too. Not sure how the 997tt's camber would be doing hard launches. We know that our cars will stay the same as they are set, only the toe alters.
