Swamp2, can you explain this one or try to calculate in your software.

I'm just interested on what kind of figures you'll get. I'm not flaming or anything like that, i'm just curious. Because these are very close numbers that the RS4, ISF and even the current M3 are getting. Remember, this is a 3500lbs car with only 333hp. If you can, if you don't want to that's fine as well. Thanks.
