    No doubt about that. But it makes me feel ok about launching my STi with 260 whp on street tires.

    :dunno:

    Dynos are tuning tools, not dick measuring devices. The true measure of horsepower is trap speed.

    I noticed it, but I guesss I misunderstood it.

    My 5th gear synchros went after 17k miles, and my rear end had some small chunks at 36k :squint:

    Nah, maybe in an all out drag Vette, with gears, and big slicks you can make a 700hp Vette run mid 9's, but if you want a street Vette, its going to take a little more then 700hp out of a Vette to pull mid 9's. I mean, keep in mind, a new stock C6 with 550 horsepower is only going mid 11's. Its going to take a little more then 200 horsepower to take two secounds of your 1/4 mile time when your already going that fast.
