Hmm, I forgot about it and looked at the vs. section and it was not there, honest mistake. I did not check the video section again, my bad. It is in these moments when we are all thankful that Vbulletin has a merge feature. Now for a mod to figure it out and we are all set.

I've raced my friends M3 when he had a few people in the back and I was riding solo in my ISF. It wasn't even the same car. The weight really made the car noticeably slower just like the vid. The m3 coupe would've stayed with the c63 by the looks of it. But it
was not even close with the weight advantage. These cars are matched so closely any little added weight or special condition kind of exagerates the win or loss.
