the IS wasn't auto - like i said i spent some time talking to the guy . . . it was a 5 speed V6. yeah i have hypnotics tune. . . i don't know what kind of HP/TQ they lose going to the wheels but the SVT with it's gearing is a force top end and like i said even when he ****** up and i had a decent launch it wasnt much of a lead til i hit the sweet spot in second gear. before that i was only about 3/4 a length.

and when i fotched my launch he had me big time - but that was our 3rd run.
