    interesting.
    but it doesnt really give you an idea of who will beat what. its just purely based on who has the highest number. theres alot more to it than that.

    im guessing you're excited for your car to be finished tho? what was your nearest competition?
    ferrari enzo? lol

    I like these kind of stats!

    With my 293bhp and 1100kg I have 266bhp / ton,

    The site says competition is:

    Jaguar XKR R - (234)
    Maserati 3200GT - (237)
    Lotus Exige (S1) - (247)
    Mercedes CLS55 AMG - (252)
    Aston Martin DB9 Volante - (260)
    Porsche 911 GT3 (996) mk1 - (271)

    Not a bad group to be in I don't think!

    I've got the same list with my K04, but i the real world I'd spank most of those cars. Especially the ST170, they're proper slow!

    I really need to put the car on a diet :(

    Bill that's absolutely obscene. I can't even begin to imagine how the lupo must feel with 80bhp/ton more than mine :S and the ibiza.....

    well. I think we're all agreed that it's beyond insane!

    Would appear to get the 'You have so much horsepower to even care what your Power to Weight Ratio is :)' comment you have to be at 550bhp per tonne PWR (car only)... I would need a tad below 800hp in my S3 to do that LOL....

    Same here...with 218bhp per tonne.

    But the 314lb of torque it's delivering makes it feel quicker.

    fred put 285hp in yours, you'l get good competition then. and lets face it, it prob has that easy.

    knoxie you've confused the 0.8 rule for airflow-horsepower, with horsepower-fly power.

    most, probably all cars are quoted at the fly, so your 267 if thats what your printout is, is at the flywheel

    I think I used 283bhp as I'm getting that in airflow :(

    I used to smash ST170s in my Clio 182, and I smashed a Clio 182 in my S3 with just a stage 1 map lol.

    Hows yours 1400? You stripped yours? Im putting 1400 and mines lost a few punds.

    Im putting 240 in as it was pulling 235 before the full 3" tbe, plus its not much slower than my mates remapped s3 :).
