The STS recorded a BEST 0-60 of 7.2 when I flogged one with the vericom,
torque braking the beast each time....  Car rags best is 7.0.....  The S4 in
STOCK trim is consistently in the low 6's and with a peak torque of 257lb/ft
@ 1950 should easily dust a STS....  The caddy engine is a fine one, but
maybe in search of a better chassis (or lighter)....  Don't sell the 5ktq
short either graydon, BTDT with both my toys, caddies have a high propensity
to try bragging at the toll booths here in Chi-town....  A stock S4 in second
or 3rd has a serious task associated with speed.....
