Well said!,you'd only feel the changes on a track with long straights, around corners there's negliable improvements, as someone else said it gets all its power down no problem, why add more?, it beggars the question, should we all start having licenses saying what we're capable of driving?!

Having parked next to one the other day i must say it's a very imposing car, all testosterone and wheel arches, but why, OK the upgrade isn't a stellar price but whose going to notice or know?, and why would you want so much power in an already super quick car?,maybe it's just ego, mines a little bit faster than yours syndrome, who cares?, and anyway its a track car, you shouldn't be driving that fast on public highways, i always thought if you drove a fasdt car it was your responsability to drive correctly so as not to atract the boy racers or indeed the law!
