Well just like the IS-F thread...

I have a really hard time buying the numbers (again the collective of claimed specs and this unofficial Ring time). Like I said above, and it the other thread on this topic, the numbers really don't add up. Pretty much everything under 7:40 on the ring is >500 hp and <3300 lb meaning less than 6.6 lb/hp. This car by its specs is running about 8 lb/hp. enigma - what do you think - am I missing something here?
