Interesting and informative.

Thanks.

An issue remains, however, as the GT-R does better on a drag strip than it ought to, assuming either 480 HP or the 530 HP 2012 model. There just may be something to the conjecture re the car making more power under way than when stationary and bolted to a dyno.
