I for one was very skeptical about the actual power output, i won't deny that!! There were many that were! And not just because it's more than anyone really thought possible on an aircooled 2 valve engine, but also that this much power on a chassis dyno wouldn't be able to hold traction! I must admit that i am still a little puzzled by the car not wheel spinning through the dyno pull, i've seen cars with less power not able to get the power down on a set of rollers! The exact same type of dyno too!
I thought that kind of power would only be measurable on an engine dyno!

His power speaks for itself though doesn't it, i like the fact that he doesn't post on the forums or brag to anyone, and then just goes out there and lets the car do the talking!

I mentioned on another post that we had a similar event here in the UK the day before, and there was a 1000 bhp car that managed 222mph. This was a Cabriolet water cooled car, i thought it was a 997 to start with but it's a 996. Anyway, point being this was a mega fast car, and yes it's heavier than Bello's motor, but it only managed 222mph in 1.5 miles, Bello getting 236+ in one mile is something to behold!!
This is a VIDEO of the 996 taken by a German fella that's big on the BMW boards, i am in the 997GT2 with Toby, the GT2 is a proper 650bhp RS Tuning engine. The GT2 only managed 197. It's stuff like this that really brings it home just how quick that Bello car is!!!!
