Apparenly now dyno data isn't even good enough. The variables in a 60-130mph run are more than a dyno with absolutly no way to control. Temperature, grade, body work and wind are HUGE variables.

Sorry Brian but that is bollocks, there is WAY more room for BS on a dyno! Proper acceleration data done by a GPS based device like a Driftbox or AX22 is absolute. Done on a nice even straight road, making a note of the ambient temp, and knowing the weight of your car.... There is no room for BS then.
But i suppose most people that have a dyno sheet saying that they have 500rwhp and then see that they are doing 60-130mph in 9 or 10 seconds are too embarrassed to post, i can't really blame them...



"We have seen 1.0bar at 2600rpm on a 400WHP CIS 930 which produces more than 180WHP @ 3000rpm... "

^^^^^
This statement is total bollocks
