    Me too. If I ever came into some money, I would buy an E55 without even thinking twice. E55's are ****ing dope!!! Can't get much better performance and luxury in one package.

    gearing or not, you would have dont well at higher speeds. Not even 18G guys can pull on them. They trap at mid to higher 110's.

    Yup, thats how most of my races are with high end cars...my buddy has an E55 and we run a few times for fun and I stay out on him until the top of 3rd and then he waves bye. I have yet to run him with my Stage 4 and I want to tune it before we run again but I bet it will all be in the launch, if he doesnt spin I'm toast, if he spins maybe I can hold him off for awhile.
