Since the other thread is locked, here's the Lambo on the weekend with me entering 190 and maxing out at 268.
How much slower would a road 458 be into the last turn? 10, 20, 30 ks slower?
Then how much earlier would a road 458 need to brake to make turn 1? 5, 10, 15, 20 metres? More?
Now let's say a pro is driving, entry is 10ks faster than me, and brakes 20 metres later. Add 10ks to top speed? Maybe 20ks?
Still gets us to 288. I'll also look at road 458 videos with speed showing and compare acceleration from 200 to 300 and time it against the race car. No doubt the race car accelerates slower due to more drag.

It's well known a Lambo GT3 is faster in the straights than a 458 GT3.

Our car was pegging the rev limiter in top at 277 on a good lap.

in this clip, the 458 does 200 to 270 in 8 seconds

in the lambo it's 11 seconds. the faster the 458 goes the slower the acceleration will be, so to get to 300 will a bigger percentage if you know what I mean

OK FF,

Answer me this question;

1) Would it be possible for a 458 to hit the straight at PI at 250KPH?

You answer me this....

Youve watched the video and saw the screenshot, where one did at least 281 top speed.."just on 285" on the dash. With two people on board, over half a tank of fuel, having approached the last turn on a compromised line due to witches hats controlling line in a safer slowermanner...

Do you really think it wouldn't go a lot faster with light fuel, 100kg lighter due to no cameraman, on an aggressive racing line and braking even later?

Huh?

Answer the questions you MUD NUT!

1) Would it be possible for the 458 to hit the straight at 250KPH?

2) If so, would it have enough track to then drive for 16.2secs and still make the corner?

Just answer the 2 questions!

May the Horse be with you....

You're asking irrelevant hypothesis, and ignoring hard evidence.

Your question isn't worth answering.
