    2005 black/black. Just took it to the dragstrip and it was turning consistent 11.5-11.7 @128-129mph. Not bad for a full automatic with the A/C on, and traction control. It would go faster with the traction control off as it was limiting power to over 60mph. On a set of drag radials, its a 10 sec car out the box. Next week it goes off to L.A. for some new wheels, and motor mods. Should come back as a monster!

    Cant post pics here?

    Here are a few vids:

    Also, for those into drag racing, these runs were done in AZ at temps over 90 degrees at a 3300Ft D/A

    IMO if you bought an SLR to go drag racing, you're doing it wrong.

    You do realize they specifically designed them to suck air past the brake rotors, right?

    Ive actually just had a set of custom Iforged wheels built for the car. Ive got the following mods planned for it:
    Custom wheels
    yellow calipers
    Lower it

    Engine mods:
    ECU
    Supercharger puller
    New Intercooler pumps. The Engine mods are good for an additional 60rwhp, and 100ft lbs of torque at 2500rpm.

    As someone mentioned the stock wheels are designed to chanel the air away.

    Car rocks, it is HIGHLY underated in magazine articles, and the magazines biggest complaint, the brakes is baloney. Atfirst, they feel different than normal brakes, but once you get used to them, they are phenominal.

    As for not drag racing the car, its funny, but this car just does everything soo well. Drag racing is actually alot of fun in this car. I also had it about a month ago in Vegas for the Nellis Airforce Base 1 mile shootout. At 180mph, the car is dead planted, rock solid.

    Even though I was very happy with the 129mph trap speeds the car was obtaining at the strip, it is still not indicative of what the car is actually capable of. The traction control kicks in heavily below 60mph. On a roll for example, against a modified Ford GT that runs 133-134mph in the 1/4, The SLR actually pulls him, in a 40-150mph race.

    Ive been a diehard Lambo fan, and for the most part still am, but the SLR has really spoiled me.
