Munit is still waiting for a refutation toward anything he said..... and to be honest, so am I. At least two people have knocked his post so far, but no-one has said what particular thing(s) in it is/are incorrect or crazy. Granted, his big post isn't written in the most elegant way. But what's wrong with saying " the feeling of speed and acceleration is actually thrust which is engine torque+gearing, NOT just engine torque"? It seems to me that's the brunt of what he's trying to explain/discuss.

See this thread for a little more info: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=157633
And this one on another site for an M3 vs C5 Corvette Z06 real-world torque comparsion: http://forums.carmudgeons.com/showthread.php?t=23608 The M3's torque at the wheels is quite comparable and sometimes even higher than the Vette's despite a 100+ lb-ft engine torque difference.
