On the second pass, the overboost protection feature kicked in at 19 psi, which it hit by second gear and killed the power. he didn't get a chance to fix it there, but Kakaletris plans to return in hopes of some mid-10-second runs. A month on and the M Coupe's 3.23 rear end was swapped for a taller 2.93 final drive with more lock-up, putting more power to the ground and loading the turbos harder in each gear. A Getrag six-speed tranny also found its way in. the next LP640 owner will be flabbergasted when this little coupe rockets ahead at over 210 mph.
