Although more than 100 ponies south of the most powerful contestant, the entry from Cargraphic managed to take the coveted first place through the Buttonwillow road course. The mission statement of owner Hershel Zelcer was to create a decathlete, a car that could do everything well. It was a mission accomplished. Clad in a foreboding black paint, its body was dressed with Cargraphics' pronounced aerodynamics, which made it appear even more menacing. Surprisingly, this car was third quickest through the 1/4-mile with an 11.29 at 124.5 mph. This Porsche contains GT3 seats, Cargraphic silver gauge faces and features a customized interior clad in the same exterior color scheme. It is obvious this Porsche makes power where it counts, and the Cargraphic suspension is second to none. The numbers speak for themselves.
A lot like the cab with none of the traits of the rear end being unpredictable. Perfect spring and shock package for this event. Supple ride, well balanced, easy to push hard and drop lap times, brakes worked perfect, car sounded great, looked great, nothing jumps out and complains. These guys did their homework, as the mid-corner balance and grip was the best of all the cars, and the ride was very, very smooth, and overall traction was great. Power delivery was excellent, very usable, and the car inspired confidence, resulting in the lowest lap time of the day. These New Yorkers showed up with a car I would love to drive every day, and it seems very reliable. Michelin Cup tires did their part well.
