The spread of false information in this thread is astonishing.
I really dont even think some of yall have even driven either one of these cars. I dont care what you say about how your cars pulls harder above ~4500rpm...I DOESNT! Jesus people, there are dynos to prove it!
Anyways, since yall are such drag racing experts, whats your 540's 1/8th mile ET?
There are dyno's to prove what exactly? That it doesn't have a peaky power band? 290hp is 290hp period, I rather develop it from 4800rpm-6100rpm then from 5500rpm-6100rpm. I don't really understand what you are saying. Are you saying you rather have a peaky motor? Did you know on a track having a flat power band is better? Sorry champ, but I much rather have my 290hp available over 1300rpm then just 500 as you are suggesting with your "linear" power band. I don't see how you believe that a car with an always climbing power band will be faster then one with a plateau'd power band, if both have the same amount of peak power.
And it WILL accelerate just as hard (if not harder) after 4500rpm. You are developing the same amount of power the whole time, so why would it all the sudden start accelerating slower? You better check where you are getting your information from.
