    And the usual disclaimer that this all sucks and isn't worth your time is always in effect.

    What a weekend. My friend Carmen and I drove down to Connecticut and stopped first at XX Tuning to check out their 350Z dyno day, and then proceeded down to Speed Technik in Norwalk, CT where the true, real, cream dream supreme™ treat of the day awaited us: A drive in their 415 whp RS6 supercar. While we were there, we took advantage of their electrical expertise and had Carmen's V1 hardwired. On the way home, we ran through the Berlin Turnpike and clowned a B5 S4, AMG C43, and an E39 540i on the way home.

    A word on the RS6 - That thing is a total joke. While driving it, I noticed that while one is always aware of the car's considerable heft, its ludicrous power announces itself with neck-breaking acceleration regardless of its weight. In fact, due to the comfort and luxury of the car, it probably doesn't feel quite as fast as truly is - if such a thing is possible. :lol:

    The Valentine is so much better that it is barely a comparison. I have seen them both hooked up to the same windshield and watched the Valentine ID a cop/speed trap a good three (in one case it was 8-10) seconds before the Passport. I am finally getting mine this Christmas....now that they aren't the size of a house. :big grin:

    You probably did. I usually take the Merritt until the 95 connector in Milford, but this time we said screw it and just stayed on 95 the whole way down. :big grin:

    Excellent media as always Slotho! :bigthumb:

    I'm not a huge fan of EVO's, but something about that yellow one in your pics/vids just made it seem really really mean:
