If you did, you'd notice that the GTS usually dyno's in @ 162 at 7600rpm the wheels normally.. not to far from the Type S..


The GTS will murder any E30... and come real close to the E30 M3....
While you are right about the RSX-S vs CGTS, you are wrong about them "murdering" E30's. 3 CL's is what a GTS beats me by, and trust me, E30 M3's are no quicker off the line than a M20B25 powered non-M. Why can't you guys wrap your heads around that?

Who's the noob^^^?

If you actually looked into it, you would realize there is also a 190hp version of the magnum. Which would be easily smoked, But even if it was the 250hp version that he raced, the magnum has a curb weight of around 4000lbs, which puts it's power to weight ratio at around the same as the E30. Then on top of that both the 190hp and 250hp versions are only offered with the 4 speed auto transmission, which equates to a significant drivetrain power loss, compared to a manual.

Therefore this all comes out to the e30 winning.

where the M3 dominates is TOP END and Handling/Braking. Off the line there about the same as the 325is.
