Hmm... did that 740 turbo beat that 850? Haha, I think the 850 just hit his brakes... Of course, that 740 was running 19 PSI of boost.<P>P.S. As for Boxster's, I've beaten my share fair of them, I actually almost kept up with a Boxster S once <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">. From a rolling start at around 30, and kept up with him until about 70, then I backed off, ya right, he just pulled away.<P>

740s are faster than you think. My friend has me and all he has are fatter tires and hes running it at 13psi. 'Course, my car is still stock except drop in filter and an exhaust. On the standing start its pretty much a whos got the best launch war, but he still pulls on me at speed. The main thing hes got on me is the smaller turbo. I can visually see when his car starts to make boost, then feel mine start to do the same. Man... Can't wait til the summer to get that chip... :-D Then we will have to see whats up.<P>
