Also, the peak HP is as important as it is, the HP/torque curve is also important, right?
+1. I totally agree. It's a combination of Nissan's amazing ATTESA-E-TS AWD system and launching at the ideal hp/tq.
Also, in the above video I don't think he realizes that it launches more precisely and easier in auto mode, esp. for those not very familiar with the car.
