Mallett Cars just sent me their first test data from a day at the drag strip, Sunday November 13.

65 Degree weather - cloudy
Stock wheels and tires, no tuning, running 93 octane pump gas

Total of 5 passes (car was driven to strip, not trailered)

Best 0-60 time (running V Box timer) - 4.2 seconds
Worse 0-60 time - 4.5 seconds (no spin start)

Best 1/4 time - 13.20 seconds at 113.7 miles per hour
Worse 1/4 time - 13.89 seconds at 109.1 miles per hour

These were the first test days at the drag strip to see where the tuning works needs to be done. Again, this is with stock Goodyear RS-A 245/245/18 tires. Mallett will go back to the garage this week and teak the suspension a little bit and run his upgraded wheel and tire package on the next track day. The problem with these first runs was 2nd gear wouldn't hookup and tires keep spinning all through 2nd gear.

Mallett believes that he will get it to 4.0 seconds (0-60) and 12.5 seconds (1/4) with some suspension tuning and upgraded wheels/tires.

Did they have any problems with axle wind up or did it launch smooth?
I wouldn't think there would be with the design of the rear suspension as it is...

No wheel hop at all! The only real issue to work out is the 2nd gear wheel spin. If you shift at 5,000 rpms or above from 1st to 2nd, 2nd will continue to spin all the way to redline if you don't feather the throttle first. Mallett is back at the shop today working on the issue and should be testing again by the weekend.

the grand price of 40,000.

-- amazin.. super car numbers.
coparison.
-- dodge viper 3.9 70,000
-- corvette 3.7 67,000
-- lamborghini gallardo 4.0 163,000
-- ferrari enzo 3.6 1,000,000

The only one that's worth more may be the ariel Atom 2
0-60 in 2.9 50,000

But you don't get doors, windows, roof, windshield, ac, or a radio. I'll stick to the mallet.
