Am wondering what percentage of mechanical loss there is, on my new toy.?
Rear engine, rear wheel drive.. distance between flywheel and road wheels.. about as close as you can get.. 381 bhp at flwheel.. 1360 kg. :D

Using the Evo formula of 24% loss.. through gearbox + 2 diffs + 4 driveshafts.. GT3 should be lower.? :confused:

I am not an expert on power losses for modified beetles, but I would assume its less then 24%.

But men, its a real beauty. I personally do not like german cars, if I would have been forced to pick one it will be the GT3. It goes very well, I have been driving against one, and it was a real challenge to keep up.

Rob,

Read this:-

Looks like 15% for porkers as a rule of thumb. (323atw can't be bad!)

It shows why above 60mph, this car will leave an equivalent 4wd powered car behind.. to 60mph the 4wd car has traction..

" Evo mag tested figs "...

0-60mph ..fq 400.. 4.0 secs*
0-60mph .. GT3.. 4.3 secs*

0-100mph .. fq 400 .. 9.9 secs*
0-100mph .. GT3.. 9.2 secs*

above 100mph GT3 waves goodbye.. :p

* As I have said.. these are tested figs by Evo mag, not hypothetical figs by dyno calculation.!

Interesting reading. :D

I wouldn't even dream of comparing a GT3 to a 4 door rice box.
Besides, the GT3 is much more track orientated and the Evo's based on a rally car.

Black GT3 *droool* You lucky farker :D
