LOL!!! You mean the Infiniti G35 that slowly fell farther and farther behind? The one I raced didn't quite have it. I can honestly say if he had 10-15 more hp, he would likely have kept right up.

You know 18 wheelers are 6 cylinders, right? Also only have 300-360hp? I can't imagine what their torque is though. Ignore the number of cylinders and hp claims.

I drove an RX-8 and was terribly disappointed! 235hp?!?! That's as much as an out-of-the-box GM Goodwrench 350!!! Unfortunately the RX-8 only has about 80 ft-lbs of torque.

That's not nearly enough to tighten my lugnuts.
