    Those are some inconsistent numbers. It's always funny when non-car mags to car stories. It's always obvious a non-car-enthusiast wrote it.

    I would have used 1/4 mile times, as they are more consistent and less dependent on launch.

    hahaha, even Saleens own numbers don't support this.
    The short gears on the Scooby and Mitsu are misleading to the cars ability.
    A run 0-150-0 ten times in a row then ten laps of a race track might tell you a little more.
