Hey Jon I got a chance to talk to David Brown the co-owner of Speedwerks and the one responsible for putting the engine together points out to me that the manifold pressure was at 205Kpa at 568RWHP so it was just a hair over one bar when the clutch started to slip, the is a lot of big power there and I can turn it up some more on the right fuel, but there really is no need to do so and I would rather like not having to spend more money for a while.

Linc.. sounds like Speedwerkes and the Motec boys have you nicely dial in! Looking at the build with the sum of parts used.. I would expect that car to be over 500RWHP.

I wouldn't touch a thing.. get in properly broken in, change the oil, and ensure all is with proper spec.. and go melt some tires!!

Congratulations SCHNELE!

Sounds like an amazing machine. Once the power is "up there" the actual numbers are really meaningless. It's that rawness and sense of speed you describe.

Have a blast with your new toy - if only in your garage until the white stuff melts!

Thanks Paul and Glenn. I am thrilled with the tuning, and it will be a long and torturous wait until I can drive this car but I think I can manage.

That's a monster amount of power at that boost Lincoln, would love to know more about that turbo you've got but i guess that'll never happen. Hope you have many happy miles in it.

Olli, sorry to hear about your plans getting screwed up, hope it all comes together for you in the new year! Hopefully when you do manage to get over to Finland you'll make the trip to Le Mans one year, would love to see your car. When you do get over there I have an AX22 you can borrow for a while if you don't have one.

Happy new year

So, am I to understand this beast is actually FASTER than when I rode in it last year? That time when the ENTIRE police force of a certain town in Oakland County MI was mobilized to apprehend the blur of a white 911 reportedly violating their quiet little streets??

Lookout Woodward Ave... 's a new Sheriff in town, and he speaks German!

I drove the car today my five year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am still really impressed by it but I don't like getting in and out with the front section of the Matter roll cage in place, I would like to modify the down tube on the front section for better ingress/egress and I would like to lower the seat rails and move the seats back two inches. I let the car idle for a bit to get the heat going and I attempted to let my faithful lab out before leaving, she refused to go out as she had to go past the 930. After warming up the car heading for my favorite back road, 1st gear grip is good even though it is cold 34f hammer down and the revs blur towards the redline, 2nd gear repeat more of the same, 3rd gear rips up more rubber until I lift, my daughter yells, do it again daddy! I say to her that daddy did not mean to do that and we should drive responsibly. I take my daughter to the local creamery Maggie Moos for a treat and I watch the passerby point at the car and I got numerous thumbs up while driving. All in all a fun winter Sunday.

Juice I would like to go with original 935 pieces if I can find them, the replicas are quite expensive as well so I would rather get the original pieces. I need to have a ebrake so I will be doing some research.

Yasin why don't you fly out in the spring and you can shoot the video.
