Re: S4 vs. Cadillac w/Northstar
2 things that i can think of in the s4's favor...
1) manual transmission
2) 4 wheel drive. do you know for a fact that the caddy is actually
putting down 300 bhp onto the pavement? i kinda doubt it. i'd say 200
bhp max, depending on the surface. remember, this is a fwd car.
the GM proving grounds may have a much grippier surface than where
the incident occurred.
personally, i wouldn't even consider a fwd car TC or no TC with anything
more than 200 bhp.
plus this is winter and i don't know how cold it was when mr nivi did his
smoke job, but the s4's output would benefit immensely from the cold
