I'm not sure what it runs in the 1/4. They're still playing with I think, they certainly haven't wrung it out to its maximum levels yet tho.
Yeah I know about that car, it's insane! Haha thing is the 2.5L isn't as reliable at those high rpms as the 2.3L will be over time, I think the 2.5L needs more beefing up to be able to handle those high rpms than the 2.3L as well if I'm not mistaken.
You think the 6spd is only as strong as the PAR gearset? That's interesting, I was always under the impression that the 6spd was absolutely bulletproof, and that the 5spds just can't handle the power the 6spd can. Though I guess that could be just due to the shorter ratios/less force on the individual gear itself?
