Only a fool would ignore valid and reliable data. (not calling you a fool)

Looking at the data below, it is obvious that the data set appears good and measuring the torque through the drivetrain shows the engines torque / power characteristics.

Also explains why the RS4's otherwise decent engine is wasted by attaching the horrible power sapping Quattro drivetrain.

No doubt Footie will jump in and try to use diversions and irrelevant arguments to say how great the RS4 is.... But all observable races the RS4 is slower than its competition and this dataset shows why....Quattro.
