    Considering that the P85D lists the power rating of the front motor as 259HP, why are the motors on the 85D rated at only 208?? Truly, how much more power could potentially be extracted from the 85D, and is the limiting factor, other than software, the inverter or something of that nature? I feel as if there's so much more that the P85D can do (seen with the ludicrous mode upgrade), but also I feel that more can be done with the 85D. Any thoughts?
