Torque.
What a lot of folks don't understand or don't realize is that the 930 engine is capable of laying down some serious torque at a very low RPM. You can win many street battles that on paper should not have been won because of the long flat torque curve these monsters have.
EXCELLENT point, Brian! This was/is something that took me a while to comprehend. I let a guy from my office with a 2004 Mustang Cobra drive my car, and he couldn't fathom how quickly things can happen, all under 5,000 RPMs, and how quickly the car revved to my redline of 6,300 (limited with my XDi controller).
