    Note, the F10 M5 does NOT always make 527whp on a Dynojet too. So, in some runs it might run that number & some run less than that. Even INSIDELINE, have seen this dyno results. It's like the overboost mode runs whenever it feels like after a high number run.

    I think it was really heat soak that affected the numbers.

    It was quoted "Heat-soaked intercooler, you might guess, and so did we. Nope."

    I should have read through all the way I guess. I wonder what's up with the variant then.

    This is why it lost.



    F10's have trapped above 120mph. They are close, the M5 had some starting issues.

    I'm not saying the M5 couldn't do better on slicks, merely that someone modified a stock GT500 to hook and it did 11.1@124

    It's a valid example certainly but I think the M5 properly driven should take this race based on the HP figures, weights, transmissions, etc. It's not a blowout or anything but this is just odd.

    If you shift in manual and shift too early or late it can affect you certainly.
