Of couse i am hauling, you guys said i need to redline it a bit more. Seriously the car is for going fast, probably a lot of fun on the autobahn where one can keep it wound out in 4th and 5th.

The flat touque curve explains the even acceleration. Question, why have such a high redline then, coupled with flat touque and 6 gears. With flat torque and a wide rev range wouldnt a 5 speed make more sense, less time wasted on shifting, faster or equal overall acceleration. I guess those 6 gears make sense on the track though.

On the street the brakes seem very strong although overboosted. A lot of the forums seem to say that the stock brakes are crap on the track, is this true. Can a pad and brake fluid change allow the brakes to live on a track.
