Well, we had a modified S60R vs modified V70R race today on autobahn.<p>Power mods are something like this:<p>S60R - BSR, Iridium Plugs, CAI, BMC, SvR 3" DP, Burns 3" -> Jetex<br>V70R - RICA Stage II, FMIC, CAI, BMC, Ferrita 3" DP, Burns 3"-> Ferrita<p>First run was on the autobahn starting in 3rd gear at 60 mph with V70R about 2 car lengths in front. Drivers had radios, so they were able to coordinate starts. S60R had to hit the brakes after a few seconds to keep from rear-ending V70R. <p>Next two runs were with S60R in front. Both runs yielded same results - despite V70R getting draft benefit, S60R pulled away. By shift to 4th, S60R had pulled 4 car lengths. By shift into 5th, had pulled 12 car lengths. Due to catching up with traffic on the autobahn, could not continue much past 120 mph, but S60R was still pulling away.<p>Things to ponder...<br>S60R weighs less, but pulled away despite V70R drafting<br>Was weight not as big of a factor since race started at 60mph?<br>Does V70R have better cD at high speeds because of back end?<br>Should FMIC have helped even though temps were only 65 degrees? <p>Also worth noting, S60R with BSR has never thrown CEL, unlike both V70Rs that came back from RICA.
