C&D results: note: Not too sure about the RS4 figures, it actually might be better than that.
M3= 0-60 @ 4.4 secs/ 1/4 mile 12.9 secs/ 3650lbs
RS4= 0-60 @ 4.6 secs/ 1/4 mile 12.8 secs/ 3900bls+
ISF= 0-60 @ 4.2 secs/ 1/4 mile 12.7 secs/ 3800lbs
And you absolutely continue and continue to NOT READ NOR UNDERSTAND MY POSTS. YOU HAVE TO DIG DEEPER THAN HP, WEIGHT AND 0-60. UGHHHH. READ - PLEASE! It is right in bold- you quoted it but you don't bloody understand it!

The torque delivered to the wheels divided by the weight is an absolutely essential factor.

You obviously did not take to heart my post about the updated transmission modeling and the fact that the C&D results are still not very physically possible given the specs of the car. Everything should add up simply because this it the real world, described by physics. Again, I'd point out the Civic example but you JUST DON'T GET IT.

Other members have already addresses this (thanks guys). It is absolutely not conspiracy theory. It has been done before and it'll be done again. Some very big BMW fans have even suggested early E46 M3 were guilty of this.

OK. I am really done now. Keep on posting. You are so stubborn and arrogant and unwilling to read and learn I just can't keep trying to help you. You have really missed the ENTIRE POINT. Enjoy your isolated ignorant little world. And "ignorant" is not an insult, and does not mean stupid.
