The Q50 is way faster than the RC350 for sure. I am curious to see what an ECU tune will do and hope it opens up more.
I attached a picture of the stock redsport wheel and tire weight. They are fairly heavy. You can easily cut 10lbs a corner like I did.
Question is, how? How does it DESTROY the RS400?
RCF dyno in stock form is very similar to what RS400 Dynos at.
RCF: 390whp/345 ft-lbs
RS400: 376whp/350 ft-lbs
RCF CURB WEIGHT 3,958 lb
RS400 CURB WEIGHT 3,853 or 4,005 for AWD
I fail to see how it destroys it. If anything many RCF owners complain the 8 speed tranny distributes power unevenly between gears, making it worse.
You are either using bad fuel, or confused. If you were to tell me you have a base M3 which weights almost 400 pounds lighter than RS400 then I can understand, its more agile due to weight. But, the RCF is heavy as ****, heavier than RS in a RWD config, and almost the same for AWD model...
Another benefit for having an RS400 is anything you add to it MOD wise will give it a lot more power than any bolt on you slap on an NA v8 in that RCF.
*** forgot to add. AWD has more power loss due to an AWD system. RWD has less loss. Compare both RWD models instead!
