There are no cars that make 500hp on AW, none of the 1/4 mile times  
and 0-60 times jive with the ultra optimistic dynos those guys love  
to use. Seriously a 5 second dyno pull is not a real pull. The reason  
these guys love those dynos is the boost overshoot that occurs with  
certain AWEsome software....
