    just read maxim mag's review of a few cars including track tests by dario frascetti. seems gallardo was about 2-3 sec off his time in stradiale on same track (i think laguna seca but not sure), same day. i believe was 1.22 vs 1.25 but will have to check for specifics. this surprised me somewhat. i wonder what fchaters times are at this track vs pros.

    Those times seem way too fast for Laguna. Must be somewhere else.

    took place at california speedway. gallardo did 1.24.3 and stradale 1.22.1. Is this an oval course? nascar teams were said to be there at same time. i know weight reduction is more important than hp/torque on a road course but id think hp wins on an oval.

    Like Indy, they have a road course infield.

    At last weeks Pocono event, The Gallardo's were easily pulling away from my 360 and other 360's down the long straights. Nothing like an extra 100 shp! They looked about equal through the short twisty infield. Don't see how the Stradale could make a big difference down the straights but probably would be quicker in the twisties.

    The 360C's were even struggling to keep the big Murci's in sight down the straight but looked quicker in the infield.

    The CS in top form is actually very quick. In the recent Best Motoring video they compare the 360 CS and Gallardo in top speed after a single oval lap, standing quarter mile and a rolling start though I'm not sure what distance. '

    The 360 CS won each test.

    Dario races for Acura...and he tested the RamSRT10...and the Gallardo is fast...so is the Stradale...
