If you say so! Thats why I asked, how much the stock amby takes to hit a 100kmph. would give us some idea of what difference the numerous mods have made.

Now Thats what you call a sleeper

EDIT : watched the whole clip . Extreme weight reduction, and kinda gives new meaning to the phrase "drive by wire"

I guess you mean 17s for Quarter mile rather than 0-100kmph.

Conclusion: for all those who want their cars to perform well not only are engine and other mods required but also you need to learn weight reduction skills and at the right time drop off parts of your car to go faster. And ofcourse if your pedals dont work dont worry "drive by wire" and use your mouth for that, cause you need your hands on the steering at such high speeds.

Great video bottle!
