Passenger footwell, yes, that is the ground under the car you see.






Exhaust passing trough the passenger footwell and out the door


Apparently this is IMSA powered, awesome!

I cant see why he bothered doing all that to an ur q (efi) and then stuck those cra**y wheels on it. What a tosser, if he wanted Bling he should have bought a Lexus.
I also wonder how long the rear screen stayed put with all that air going into the cabin?

Polished is different from plating.

Polishing is Acid and then using electrolysis to make it shiny..

where as chroming is usually bare metal with a copper plating put on then a chrome plating put on..

Chroming looks very Tacky..

Electrio polishing is how they make stainless exhausts look nice and shiny with out looking wanky

Is this the URQ:

Norwegian, elsewhere seen it listed as 800HP and 800KG! Has no floor and hideous wheels.

Notes on the IMSA S2 here:
http://www.s2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14804&highlight=imsa
about 700HP and 700Nm, S1 drivetrain, and "change timing belt every 20 hours of driving"!

Oh my Gosh so is that half the weight of a standard URQ? 
any specs or times on this car?  I wonder what that dahlback one weighs ?
(driver looks intensly stimulated)
Half the weight of an RS2 yes, but a standard Ur is only 1300.

I doubt the hidious wheel would be heavy tho they certianly are hidious. And i would have thought all the air rushing into the thing wouldnt be such a great thing either but who knows? maybe there is no rear window :D
I recon sometimes you might need heavy wheels to get some grip with a super high HP motor?
