IT'S IN 0-60 in 4.4 SEC!!!!!

OK

SO NOW C/D is giving us an official time of 4.4 sec's at Ascari.

That's pretty much where I expected it. Little better track might yield 4.2-4.3...........

Thoughts?????

I don't like focusing on those 0-60 numbers, but I this is a very very nice time. Imagine it with the DCT, imagine the CSL!

I think I'm extremely disappointed with the torque numbers.

I'm buying a F22 Raptor instead.

The F22 is not a good recommendation. I've read a review 'bout it and the tester said it lacks steering feel. The old F15 was just edgier...

Probably right. The F15 was pretty damn raw. The F22 is no longer a pilot's jet. It's a businessman's jet.

What I really loved reading in the C & D review was how the M's engine sounds better and pulls harder than the RS4. That is saying alot, because that RS4 sounds awesome. I must say that I was patiently awaiting the C & D review because I read it monthly and I trust their judgement.
Now, the only thing I am waiting on is some qualified info on the DCT.

F22s have 0 torque; they're all about unidirectional thrust. try a locomotive instead.

That part stood out for me too, had a go in an RS4 coupla months back and couldnt beleive how good it sounds. Its so addictive. I could have sat and revved it in the forecourt all day!!
