Eddie should go on the show " Are you faster than a redneck?". I know he has mentioned the idea of hitting the road coarse and this would be great exposure for him.

Eddie's car, even with the boost turned down would be quite the handful on a road course. He's got one of our spools in there.
Don't get me wrong, the factory ran spools in the 935s but it was part of why the cars were known for such Jekyll and Hyde handling and manners. I wouldn't want to wrangle that horse. Plus it is not what Eddie does.

Eddie told me he was interested in putting his car on the road coarse to show people his car is not a drag only machine. I'm sure a quick Dif change and boost adjustment (down) and he would be ready to go. And as Juan just mentioned he has

I'm pretty sure Eddie did that "road racing" prior to the spool and I am also pretty sure he trashed all those Giken Lsds he grenaded.

I'm not saying Eddie couldn't go woop some arse on a road course. I'm just saying I personally wouldn't want to drive that car. Even the great Eddie Bello might face some challenges if he tried to drive it with the spool in there.
Again, there is a reason that 935 owners (Bruce Canepa first and others followed) and asked me to design and build an LSD for their cars. Now they are both faster and safer than they were before.

Which part? The part of a boy from the Bronx with nothing more than a tool box and a Bible spanking 1,500 AWD Lambos? : Boy that was fun to type!

Eddie is second to Noone. No matter what mistakes he has done in the past, The man is clean and has left his transgressions in the past. He found his path and is a man of God now. Move on.

I know that I have posted this photo before, however, I don't think people REALLY understand who Bello really is, Front mounted alcohol TT rear wheel drive car with what was going to be 1600hp+ with a Porsche engine.

That was in 2002 ALL done by Bello himself, if we think that what his has done is a great accomplishment, this build up was monumental!

If someone wants to donate 200k I'm sure he can build another one

Porsche should get on that train.

Now I know everybody says Porsche cars are not drag cars, but lately there seems to be a competition among supercars for the top spot on the 0-60 time. Porsche even has a very well laid out "launch control" on the PDK turbo cars that makes the car quite formidable at the drag strip.
