Last Shifts3ctor in October, I got a chance to run a 918. For a stock car, it is ridiculously FAST!
Owner of the 918, also owned a Ferrar f12, Bugatti and a P1 along with a couple 650s. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Sp engineering did an amazing job building me a 950 hp Street car that can be daily driven.

what was the trap speed difference. I let one get the jump on me and I trapped 197 and he trapped 170 and still beat me. If you had left together he would have got you. But, sleeping is losing and he slept.

Here, I slept

The end of the video show trap speed for both cars. I believe it was 174-Porsche and 180-GTR

We left the line maybe a half second apart.. maybe a second. The way the 918 was disappearing from the second angle, I don't think it would have mattered. If both cars launched at the same time and I hit 180 and he hits 174, Wouldn't it be the same result? Not a drag racer and that was my second time half mile racing.. so not sure.

Main difference in your race is that you didn't launch. OP did. You were reeling him in hard though on the big end.

was more concerned about MPH. Has been my experience on my car that launching makes zero diff. on the big end.
I agree if speed is all you are going for. My car is the same. Launch makes no difference in trap speed at the 1/2.

However you are the one that said " [background=rgb(246, 246, 246)]I let one get the jump on me and I trapped 197 and he trapped 170 and still beat me[/background] ". So if you were only concerned with trap speed then he didn't beat you. Which is it?

i figured I had enough power to reel him in but I just was more worried about dialing in the car, not spinning and getting toward that 200 goal. If i was actually more concerned about beating him I would have launched the car and tried harder on the tree.
