There are a couple reasons you might be faster than the mags tested. The first one is easy. The mags all test box stock cars and your is modded. They also test the cars on the street and the traction of a prepped track is nowhere near as slick as the street. I also know that in the case of Motortrend they will never rev the motor past redline in a test even if it would run faster. That is not going to be the case in the MS6 because they don't make that much power up in the high revs. Motortrend also will not powershift the test cars just speedshift. Anyway nice times! I wanted a MS6 but they cost too much, take supreme and don't get the mileage I wanted.
