    Awesome. I've never officially timed a flat out go in my brown 60, and I don't go all out that much anyways. But I have thought it felt faster than the rated speed. It doesn't feel as fast as I recall my RS6 being, but faster than my FX50S did. So, 5.1 would slot it right between them.

    As for picking on "brown", to each his/her own :)

    I never thought I'd say this about a car because I'm not really a "car guy" but it is pretty exciting just watching the speedometer shoot up! What a car...

    Or from the performance 85 to the standard 85 ;) That extra range can come in handy sometimes!

    I got one of the early sixties and was immediately amazed at my runs... I get consistent 5.2s with 21" Michelins

    5.1 is great, but across the board the 85 performance is a solid 10 MPH ahead, which is an easy 15+ cars ahead by the end of the 1/4 mile...
