Yes it is. I'm going to a half mile airport runway racing event soon. Will take some video there. Car doesn't have the tire or supporting upgrades to handle a hard launch so it's a slow roll out and then nail the gas pedal.
I get around 16MPG city and 27MPG highway. Hit the gas pedal and it's gallon per mile. I can see the gas gauge move after a few hits.
Here's the video I took earlier that night. It's NSFW my buddy drops an F' bomb in it. Be warned. Otherwise enjoy.
So fun to read about and see vids of your car experience. Being in the wheel business had it's share of super car stories. There truly is no feeling like the g force of going fast in Vet with a ton of HP. Acura is out with a new NSX this year. Cheap at 130k. It is the opposite driving experience from a Vet. They can stick to the road so hard your shoulders bruise and you can get sick. 5 gears but you can get to 130mph in 3rd gear.
One thing I learned about cars is that speed limiters are placed by the manufactures because of tire ratings. As long as you get speed rated tires your ok going the speed your tires are made for after bypassing speed limiter.
