This is the car that had a few rebuilds to get +1200HP. The owner started a thread on it here of all the problems he had having it blow up etc.

I still don't see why people modify their cars like this and then drive them at extremely high speeds on suburban streets.

The sad thing here as that the new owner of this car(the person that had it before and started this thread here sold it) has left behind a wife and 2 children.

Thankfully he didn't kill a pedestrian on the street when the accident occurred.

There is only one place to drive these cars that fast and that is on the track!

There's simply no place for cars that have performance at this level...or even well below....in this day and age on the public roads.

Accidents like this put focus on these cars, and it's only a matter of time before they're legislated against IMO

Weve had a couple of videos of a similar 1200hp Gallardo in the US losing control while going in a straight line. The one that ended up in the lake/huge puddle when it turned right off an open track. Things happen too quick at that speed and LSD's in a high HP car will often turn a car 90 degrees in a fraction of a second. I had it happen in my old GT Falcon a few times and that would have been around 420 HP max. I have no idea about transaxles, do they control wheelspin like an LSD?

If a transaxle is fitted with an lsd, the lsd will L the S of the D just like in your falcoon.

Imo much safer and more predictable then an open.

Anyway, terrible news.  RIP

never a more true word spoken. 100% correct, its one reason I stopped the Sunday morning blast fest, too many heroes with too little talent and one day someone is going to die……….
Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

I knew you'd agree with me about something one day.
