Based on that, I couldn't figure out what the lens was unless it's not a Nikon, or possibly a very high end lens. Most of the lenses I looked through couldn't do f/3.5 at 120mm.

Some of the daylight shots appear that there may be a polarizing filter on the lens.

J/K Congaman, I know it ain't easy.

Ouchhh........that hurted.... But you are probably right...maybe I should join the club for...."Us who don't know how to shift Manually"......and get me an automatic or SMG....

But as long as no one else with a Z06 dares to take the challange....I'll have to be there to do my best to defend the colors of the Corvette....It's a tough job but it has to be done......

1. Please, have mercy! My weak heart cannot stand another event like this!
2. Just out of curiosity, how many thousand horses were lined up at the airport?

But of course I have some excuses:

1. I had to turn a little bit left in the race so I had to race a bit longer.
2. I didn’t turn off the air condition.
3. I also think that you had tail wind in the right lane while I had head wind in the left.

Just kidding, the M5 is a really fast car, especially above 180-200 km/h.

Gustav - thanks for a fantastic day with fantastic cars and very nice people

I measured three of the cars from 0-250 kmh with my Vericom, well the RS4 just reached some 220 kmh or so.

I can show some data from these tests, so what do you prefer to see? I can find almost any data with in the range of the test so just give me a hint and I'll see what I can do.

The cars that I tested is a RS4 biturbo Avant, the M5 E60 Kellener and the CGT.

If I am correct your equipment should be able to generate the following which should be of interest:
- speed vs time
- speed vs distance
- distance vs time
- longitudinal G-force
- horsepower
- torque

Yes it can measure that and much more, but on this event I just took some simple acceleration tests, so I didn't connect RPM sensor or did any measures on the ambient air temp or humidity, nor on the cars wheight or aerodynamic drag. Therefore I can't see torque or HP.

From these samples I can see longitudal G-force (which selldom is in any interrest or use for common people) and all the rest you listed. But I need to know what you like to see, for example 30-70 mph or what? So be more specific on what you wanna see.
