They see you coming a mile away. I had the same thing with a WRX ... if you
take it over 5000 rpm you are buying it. So I drove it and was unimpressed
... I told them how are you ever going to sell me this car if I can't take it
to redline.

I guess most of their buyers aren't used to more than about 100 ft/lbs of
torque ... so 5K rpms is plenty to fell the torque ... what torque and where
is the horsepower. Definitely above 5K RPM.
