Looking at the numbers posted up by this group (that footie just displayed), you're clearly and obviously wrong. Again.

Disagree entirely, but how about trap speeds? How does a 300 HP, 3700 pound vehicle get to 104 -106 mph in a quarter mile?

I've already said that the E46 M3 is marginally faster, and why. You offer that street race as some sort of proof? Did you happen to hear the rubber burning at the start? Which do you figure would suffer less under those conditions - sophisticated posi or open rear? Give me a break.

It IS the motor, but as already completely described, it's also the weight and gearing.

Look, if you have a reading disability, just let me know, and I'll lay off you right now.

Yes.

111 mph is way low for 480 hp and 4000 pounds, 115 is getting close. 116-117 is about right.
