Damned if you do, Damned if you don't.

I've heard complaints from both sides - if a mag doesn't do whatever it takes to get the fastest times from a car, somebody rags on them for being weak drivers that don't know how to drive.

If they do do what it takes, then they have to take it below the belt yet again from people complaining about how they got those times.

As long as a magazine uses the same relative method to obtain it's times for all the cars it tests, I say it's just fine - compare those times to other times for that magazine only. Cross-comparing times from different magazines is just a recipe for trouble.

Cheers,

Paul Hansen

Personally, I'd like the testers to abuse the hell out the car. Let's see how the car holds up and what it will do when really driven hard, including clutch drops or whatever style can be used for best acceleration time. Let the customer baby it if they want!
