The power boost comes from the ECU Champion GIAC 93, and the car is transplanted to the Tubi Style exhaust. The rest of the stock engine. This car produces 650 hp, compared to 572 hp. in the database.
In the first race, Chevelle loses 911 in just a fraction of a second. Chevy overcomes a quarter mile in 10.67 seconds at a speed of almost 127 mph (204 km / h). The Porsche is a bit faster – it took 10.21 seconds, and it accelerated to almost 134 mph (216 km / h). Then the cars are rolled out for the second race, having previously changed lanes. We will not spoil it and you will see the result in the video yourself. Surprisingly, these machines are so different, but they show almost the same result. The Chevy has a working volume than any serial Chevrolet in history, while the Porsche just has an ECU upgrade.
