To tell ya he truth i dont see how is it possible to hit low 4s with launch control, i mean it always revs up to certain rpms and then i dump the clutch... so it should be pretty much same numbers all the time isnt it? 4.5 to 4.7 as they claim...

Btw as i break in the car i wanna see how it would do against ur z06 beast! On the drag strip too!!
