Too early for bed, Dave, unless this thread has worn you down.

However, I am surprised that so many think that a 360 can't challenge a CS!

Remember that there is a great deal involved in marking a more expensive vehicle, and part of that is creating an illusion of one upmanship.

I am suggesting that a CS, eventhough it has a little more HP and in reality only slightly lighter than a 360 when fluids are added, could be very close to the capability of a 360.

I don't think that' so hard to believe that a 360 could exceed a CS.

This isn't a made up story champ, there is (read slowly) actual footage, of such an act happening

I would take these videos with a grain of salt. Had you been on the freeway last week, you would have seen a Subaru WRX outrun my Stradale. Not because it is a faster car, but because I wouldn't race him no matter how hard he tried. In the real world and with amateur drivers, the Stradale and 360 are probably a close match. With both cars in the right hands, the Stradale would clearly win.

A 360 dynoing at 305whp is pathetic, you can get that out of a S54 (M3) engine with some simple mods.

That was a worst case though. Most dyno higher, I have seen it, either way comparing a modded M3 engine to that is apples to oranges IMO.

I thought the CS was quite a bit faster than a 360 - like 997GT3 fast - if this is not the case, I may not really want a CS. It would be sad if my sports car couldn't keep up with my sedan in a straight line.

Ford GT Pursuit: https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...t-pursuit.html

That clip is taken from a video called Super Speeders 3 - Well i was able to find Super Speeders 2 online: http://www.mininova.org/tor/496711

In Super Speeders 2 - A 2000 360 Modena (F1) races, not one, but two, different Challenge Stradale's on the highway, and wins against both of them but a fairly good margin

They decided to dyno the 360 and it comes to 333 RWHP, which figuring an 18% drivetrain loss, comes out to 390HP (10 down from Ferrari's 400 figure) and weighs in at 3170lbs.

A CS weighs around 2800lbs. and has 420hp - vs. a 3170lbs. and 390hp car, the CS should dominate...

Any thoughts?

doesn't the CS have several shifting and launch modes? I remember an old friend/CS owner telling me he would only get 4 launches out of teh clutch in the full race launch mode. The CS does have a much improved F1 system, but in amateur hands I think straight line times would be similar. Although there's no clutch, there is some finess to driving them properly and to their full potential.

-me.

Give me enough money and I can make a breadtruck outperform a Ferrari. You don't buy a Ferrari to be the fastest or have the most HP. A Corvette is always a better buy if that's all you want. Then you've got older used cars with aftermarket mods. A slighlty modified 1994 TT Toyota Supra can put out 500 HP and easily beat a Ferrari around the track for a total price of $30,000; the $ vs. POWER vs. PERFORMANCE equation doesn't apply here.

You buy a Ferrari for the entire lifestyle experience (not that I agree with it mind you)...but a BMW/Corvette/Supra/etc/etc can't do the one thing a Ferrari does almost everytime; get a girls panties wet at the stop light regardless of the tool sitting behind the wheel (no offense to owners on here who are the 10% exception).
