I still firmly believe these cars behave significantly different when you have 100mph air blowing through the front grills. I just don't think dynos necessary show replicate these conditions, and cars may react differently on the dyno then the street. For example, a DCI would be great on a open hood dyno, but in everyday driving, you might see a disadvantage sucking in that hot air under the hood.

Sometimes you just have to do things unconventionally. Do you realize all my record breaking runs were done with avoiding the water box and absolutely no warm-up burn out? I just do a light 1/2 second scrub, and I'm off.

You see, I figure with no LSD, you can't evenly heat up the tires anyways.
