    Was price a factor in the scoring? The Caddy coming in ~$12k-$15k cheaper, as tested, than the competition is pretty material in comparison to the performance discrepancies. Domestics continue to...

    As a V2 owner, I hope I'm off. It'd be nice to hang on to the top spot for straight line for two consecutive generations :D
  4. Stock for stock it may be the king of the...

    Stock for stock it may be the king of the highway, but I think its going to take more than a pulley & tune for it to catch up to the RS7's tune/ racegas 133 mph traps.

    Edit: Maybe I'm off. R & T...
  5. I'm also shocked to see the exhaust opens it up...

    I'm also shocked to see the exhaust opens it up so much up top. Maybe it was an issue with EGT's getting out of control through the stock exhaust so they kept the stage 1 tune very conservative to...

    Of course, but in the past OEM tunes left a ton on the table across the board. I think direct injection changed the game up and has allowed factories to get a lot more aggressive from the get go. ...

    The factory sure is doing a hell of a job with their tunes if there was only 15 horsepower to pick up on the top end. Given that those are 91 vs 93 octane it could very well be a wash if all things...
  8. After doing some homework, I realized I've been...

    After doing some homework, I realized I've been spoiled by the world of custom, domestic tunes for under $500 a pop and have lost touch with the new 'norms' for German cars. Obviously, cracking the...

    Incredible gains, but $2,000 for an OTS reflash!?

    Not bad at all. Has a $#@! 60', too. If they can figure out how to get the thing to launch I wouldn't be surprised to see it go sub 11.5 with these mods.
  11. It might be worth a few miles per hour over the...

    It might be worth a few miles per hour over the stick, but it isn't picking up enough MPH to put car lengths on a car that should be trapping right in the same ballpark. I'm skeptical.

    Are we sure that Z06 is stock? I'd think it would inch away from a roll, if anything. In the first few runs it pulled like it had a 100hp advantage.

    Very cool and, most likely, means it will be standard across the lineup down the road.
  14. Seriously. I wish I had enough money that I...

    Seriously. I wish I had enough money that I could say "I'm not going to buy a Ferrari until this bull$#@! ceases." and have it actually mean something.

    Seriously, I laughed at that justification for the jump as well.

    Pretty awesome that half the town shows up on the overpass to watch the race. He is revving the piss out of that Z06, too. Looked like 7,500+ to me. I'd love to hear more about the motor.
  17. S54: What kind of fuel was this run on? Are they...

    What kind of fuel was this run on? Are they running out of injector up top? The tune looks dangerously lean for the last few hundred RPM.
  18. Didn't they claim the same on the Gallardo and...

    Didn't they claim the same on the Gallardo and never back it up with any real world data (non-dyno)?
  19. Eh, manufacturer mumbo jumbo so Carrera S owners...

    Eh, manufacturer mumbo jumbo so Carrera S owners can feel warm and fuzzy. I'd be willing to bet the motors would be within 1% of eachother after they both get an aftermarket tune.
  20. S63/S63TU: Pretty ridiculous. Are they even wrapping the...

    Pretty ridiculous. Are they even wrapping the underside of the airboxes? I have no idea what this cost, but the money would be much better spent on an intercooler upgrade or at least intercooler...
  21. I agree. Lets see what customer cars actually...

    I agree. Lets see what customer cars actually weigh in at, but if this car can hit the claimed 2,950lb curb weight and make ~450hp with bolt-ons it should actually run pretty damn strong in a...

    This is the last car you should be looking at if you're worried about straight line bang for the buck.

    5th gets the ATS-V to roughly the same speed. Doesn't that mean they would be on equal footing at that point with the ATS-V having the gearing advantage up until then?
  24. Going forward, I think magazine times are going...

    Going forward, I think magazine times are going to be less and less indicative of real world performance. One thing I noticed is that the ATS-V's gearing is significantly shorter that the M3's and...

    Still too many variables. Give me a trap speed and the DA and I'll make my judgement from that.
