Nice review

I especially liked all of the details on the DSC and the fact that sport setting really allows a significant amount of slide and wheelspin. Sounds like a perfect setting for daily use and track use. This is consistent with the comments by Richter that he prefers to do his low 8 minute ring laps with DSC on (I'm sure he means with this sport setting).

I was a bit confused with the other ring time math. They say 20 seconds better than the outgoing model = approximately 8:10. The time I know from SA is 8:22 meaning the car should be around 8:02.

Just like the price hovering (in our estimates) just below or just above the $60k (USD) point it seems we will have the mystery of the 8:00 barrier for some time as well.

Thanks Greg for the scans as well!
