Damn! I knew it was going to be good, but WOW! Hmmm, don't want to trade the Boss - as I love it (so does the kid fitting in the backseat), but seriously need to figure out how to get my hands on a Stringray.

I am eager to see these figures as well. I'm going to predict either just as fast or just a hair quicker. Certainly no big difference either way. We shall see.

i dont think that 5hp change anything LoL

I agree Id imagine will be just as fast unless no launch control in auto and u have to launch off idle then u will lose a lil off the launch..

i havent seen anywhere if it said auto didnt have it.. of course i didnt see anything confirming it did..

I can't remember where I saw it, but I heard right from Tadge I think, both transmissions have launch control.

The awesomest of this is that it does it on standard high performance tires.. not R-compound tires..
