    • Gearing sound frequency will change dependant upon how hard you move through them. Do a sound analysis of the video below, where the Tuatara hits 242mph on a short airport runway. In the video 0:22 to 0:25 is the Tuatara covers .2 miles, going off of the measurement tool on Google maps. East Oregon Regional Airport runway 25, starting at the runway marking 45.6954712, -118.8368107 to 45.6954691, -118.8407200 this comes out to a speed of 240 mph, So if it covers .2 miles in 3 seconds it equates to 240mph, which lines up with the claim it reached 242mph in just over .5 miles on runway 25 at that airport. The car can definitely hit +300mph when given more room, during a Vmax run. Listen to the gears during the race, starting in 1st he shifts 4 times, ending the race in 5th gear, at +240mph. This falls directly in line with the numbers provided by Mr. Shelby (which I have provided below) Tuatara (Top Speed Model) Tech Specs Ratios/Speed, using the 2.92 final-drive ratio Gear Ratios/Top Speed (Gears 1-6 have 8,800 RPM REV LIMIT) 1st Gear: 3.133 / 80.56 MPH 2nd Gear: 2.100 / 120.18 MPH 3rd Gear: 1.520 / 166.04 MPH 4th Gear: 1.172 / 215.34 MPH 5th Gear: .941 / 268.21 MPH 6th Gear: .757 / 333.4 MPH @8800 * 7th Gear: .625 / 353.33 MPH (Estimated max @7,700RPM in 7th gear - Designed as mainly an overdrive highway cruising gear) The Tuatara did reach over 300mph, the video is just edited at a 6th grade video class level. They (SSC) have other videos on their channel showing how hard this car can pull, watch the street lines and listen to the engine note. They would NOT need to fake a 300mph run, especially with ALL the money and time they put into setting up the event and all the filming collaboration.

    VulpVulp8 päivää sitten
  • v(t) = 550* (1 - (1-400/550)*e^(- 0,1*t)) That is the possible equation of motion that the Tuatara had driven at 533 km/h. From 400 km/h towards 500 km/h it went slightly uphill, then downhill up to a 3% gradient. Therefore, the v-t function shown is still a little too slow above 500 km/h. The vehicle should have covered a distance of around 2700 m from 400-530 km/h. If the driver had stayed on the gas on the downhill stretch, the Tuatara would certainly have been able to drive a lot faster. The gear ratio (final ratio 2.92 and 6th gear 0.757) also enables a top speed of 335 mph = 540 km/h with the 345/30 ZR 20 tires. In my opinion, the hypercar had at least 1750 hp in the run shown. The low air density made this insane speed possible From 400-530 km/h the time is ~ 20 s Its nearly the same like in the Top Speed Run Video

  • A car would have a hard time accelerating that quickly at limit. Watch the Bugatti's runs, it takes a couple of seconds per MPH near the limit and it was something like 4 miles to reach top speed. This thing is still gaining at 320+ like it's doing a 100+ acceleration and it was only about 1.5 miles. Then there's the issue of tires able to run that fast. The Bugatti is limited by it's tires, why isn't this one? My $.02

    datsuntoyydatsuntoyy14 päivää sitten
    • @datsuntoyy You aren't making any fucking sense pal. Koenigsegg tested pilot sport cup 2 *(exact same set of tires tuatara used in its world record attempt)* up to 530 km/h and it did very well for a full minute. Even michelin said that they weren't expecting it. So, what makes you think that Tuatara's (even lighter than jesko absolut) tires can't last up to 530 km/h bruh? Can you explain this? And of course weight matters when you are attempting to go over 500 km/h in a world record attempt, yeah? More weight means more stress to the tires, therefore lighter the car is the longer tires are gonna last. Chiron SS is almost 800 kg heavier than Tuatara so of course it fucking matters. Sounds like you are the one who doesn't know shit about physics. Look it up. A tire rated 300mph doesn't mean that its gonna explode when you go 1-2 mph faster. It doesn't work that way. *Ratings are only for safety reasons.* In reality its capable of withstanding probably like %25-50 more speed depending on the tire. For Pilot Sport Cup 2 the car would be fine until 350+ or more (don't know by how much though).

      TakashiTakashi8 päivää sitten
    • @Takashi tires go round and round. the faster they go, the faster they spin. Personally I thought anybody over the age of 7 would have known this. They even have letters to designate how fast a tire can go. Weight is a completely different rating. I suggest you retake BASIC autos class then you'd know "what the fuck I am talking about". I don't get my autos info from video games.

      datsuntoyydatsuntoyy8 päivää sitten
    • @datsuntoyy Doesn't mean shit since koenigsegg tested pilot sport cup 2 up to 530 km/h and it held up well for about 1 minutes. Tuatara is an even lighter car. Just because fatass bugatti that weighs 2tons can't achieve 500 km/h because they don't wanna risk the tires doesn't mean koenigsegg, ssc or hennessey can't. *"In-house testing of an Agera RS with the standard tires of the latest hypercar revealed the rubber was able to withstand a speed of 330 mph for a full minute without any problems."* "still only rated to spin at a certain rpm regardless of the weight" what the fuck are you even talking about? Can you explain?

      TakashiTakashi10 päivää sitten
    • @Takashi still only rated to spin at a certain rpm regardless of the weight. Since many experts have found the car only did around 240, the point is moot.

      datsuntoyydatsuntoyy11 päivää sitten
    • @Tippotipo Yeah, pilot sport cup 2 should be able to handle 530+ km/h on much lighter cars like jesko absolut and the tuatara if the cars are fast enough. It's all about how light the car is. The lighter the car is the less pressure applied to the tires, and kudos to bugatti for pushing the tires to the limits even though their car is 700+kg heavier. With a car that's as light as jesko absolut and that has a very low frontal area like the tuatara, tires aren't the problem. It's all about the weather conditions (for crosswinds) and confidence of the driver.
