Re: Comparing Units - specifically little q content
QSHIPQ decided to speak these words:

I am speaking only of objective performance, ie, numbers, and numbers
only. So that is how you compare a 2 door vs a 4 door, straight
across...i am going to get an email attachment wiht my friend's
methodology prepared as soon as i can and send it off to you...
As i have stated before, i made that statement, Audi as number 2 based on
what i have heard and seen in regard to the potential of the turbo
engines and the chassis...I also questioned that and hope to get a whole
slew of objective performance numbers for the modified cars...that is all
im saying, i didnt mean for it to sound so matter of fact...so in that
regard, i suppose i retract my statement...only in the definite tone that

I only came to the conclusion about audi that i did by the way that i
stated above...i appologize for sounding so matter of fact...i was not
stating things objectively, ad let my subjective love for the cars get in
the way. If a chevy were to end up number one, i wouldnt like it, but i
would admit it...And i will get the form out to you as soon as i can.

I am not bringing subjective performance into this at all as that is just
that, subjective. Subjectively, anything from a Yugo to a Viper to a
Porsche can be number 1, it is nothing that can be proven, so the scope
of my statements is soley in the objective...
