    Klandrader the way I got the 787B to go that fast was simply doing the wheelie trick and that's it. :cool:

    Can you post how you got the Gillet Vertigo and the Escudo to go at such insane speeds. No matter what I tried I cant get either of them to go over 250 mph.

    Thanks

    I haven't done it myself, so I can't really help all that much, but if you hit the search button on the top right, and enter wheelie it should come up with everything you ever wanted to know, and three things you didn't.

    The Escudo and the CLK Touring car + the other cars with the lift trick have no top speed!

    I would like to know your fastest cars (no F1). My favorite and fastest one is the Porsche (RUF) RGT tuned up to about 1100 horse power and it goes 440 KM which equals about 275 MPH. It has a 0-100 KM time of 2 seconds and 0-200 KM in 6 seconds (0-100 KM is like 0-60 MPH and 200 KM equals 125 MPH).

    Greetings,

    PORSCHE FOREVER!

    Do you mean fast as in acceleration, top speed, power-to-weight ratio, or hp? Sorry I gotta clarify, but some people like the one above me didn't understand what you were asking.

    The trick on the Escudo is to set the tranny to as wide as it will go and then bring down the final gear ratio (I think I set it to 2.55). Also make sure that the car is as low as it will go and set the downforce to the lowest levels.

    I did all that and got to 280 w/ wheelie rick setting. It would ppick up speed around the corners only then i would smack a wall and i would be stuck at 209 till the next curve.


    But w/o thw whellie settings i set my ratios to wide and got 280 out of it.

    Hmm, I didn't touch any other setting on the car. I left everything else stock. I was doing about 273 through the corners.

    Are you both at redline?? That is what happened to me, then I set the final gear down to 2.55 and I hit 308, you have to do this (just setting the tranny to wide won't do it). I found without this it will just accelerate to the redline and then pretty much stop.
