Yeah I think I'm going to do some tests on the car, the straight away is a pretty long straightaway, in fact it also goes through 2 turns (you are able to straighten them out pretty well. Here is a link to the course if your curious. In between turn 9 and turn 2 its pretty long.
I will do some tests on my car at school when I get a chance.

Bluovaldave, As far as cornering you are totally right, it handles really well and when I do it right I can gain lots of distance from the Porsche, Mustangs and Sti's. If I could beat them to the first turn after the long straight I seemed to be ok, If I didn't they would easily pass me. I wish I had someone there to time me. we were all there for classes so in no means was it really competitive.
