Yes when racing from a very slow roll like say 5-10mph or so you are gonna have to wait a sec to spool whereas the N/A car will have the advantage. This was made true when I raced the S2K. It was a very slow roll. He obviously got the instant jump then once my turbo fully spooled I reeled him back in.

    Plus it is a mystery if one does not know what the other car traps. Plus if it is in a real life situation all cars/drivers are different. I for one had a real life race. Im not one for bench racing. You may be so ill leave it at that.
    Well a Honda engine at 5-10 mph isn't exactly in the heart of its torque production either.

    While any race is up in the air, I wouldn't call racing by traps "bench racing" either. It compares two car's abilities without worrying about driver error or other conditions. I have 15+ years of timeslips to go by too so I don't always do just keyboard racing. My keyboard just happens to be a lot closer than the track is.

    Yeah, I saw one the other day and I thought it was a maro running open, but it was a black FD. Very sexy. I love that car because it has the characteristics that I like in women. Sexy outside and a beast inside.

    But yeah, talk is cheap. Take it to the track and prove your point.

    Yah, I was about to say....an s2k (at least the older model) out of vtec range has nothing. I beat a Fast and Furious looking s2k from a stop 0-60 by about 2-3 cars without even a mild launch.
