There is a build thread here...pretty sure.

Yep. The guy won it in a raffle too, which was pretty cool.

If you need someone to drive the car, I will take it for the team to be a test subject.

Pretty nice.
BTW, if you get a copy of this magazine, take time to read Ezra Dyer's column "King of the Hill". He speaks particularly about the new 545 hp GT-R, but the basis of the column is about the "top dog" status of "low-line" vehicles at a particular price point as opposed to "stepping-stone" versions of more expensive marques...

For a "track star" car, I believe the coming Z/28 will speak DIRECTLY to Ezra's premise. For $60ish K, nothing will touch it, outta the box...

I don't think Pete posted this, here. Latest round of the Optima Challenge from Road America, featuring one Danny Popp at the wheel of the now-infamous L/28...

Enjoy!

Can't do a burn out in the Audi. Damn AWD!!!! But for a sedan it handles like a slot car. Yay AWD.

You can do a 4 wheel burnout if you have enough torque!

Orrrrrr a willingness to abuse ones car to levels one is not comfortable with. She has plenty of torque. Just on the few tries I've made at a "hard launch"..............it has just launched hard. No tire spinning just acceleration. And that's with All Seasons.

That's the preferred result anyway.

So just got back from a little road trip into Wisconsin.

What does it say when the Audi, now broken in, can match the Cruze for highway crusising?

It weighs 700 pounds more, AWD ANNNNNND well over double the HP.

So here is a game, using REAL WORLD cruising speeds, name a sub 5 second car that can turn 32+ mpg.

GM needs to work on that real world FE. I can get great numbers if I drive 62 mph. But the Real World speed sorta dops to 32 with the Cruze
