    Holy cow new M5

    I was comming home from LA on the 5 South. Doin 70ish in the fast lane. It was dusk and I see a car comming in and out of traffic. I pull behind it and tail from about 100 feet. I see i's a M series then I see the 5, I'm like - I'm gunna get smoked . Well I'm layin it into 3rd hard and needin to shift to fourth a few times. Well we got caught in traffic then the road opened up. Nice. I get behind at 70 about 100 feet back. I nail 3rd and as the rpms come up I start to reel him in. At 130 pullin 1 car. Holy cow ! Well after that he wasn't tryin so hard to loose me and just stayed back. Nice. I can't believe how strong this LS1 is. Oh he was by himself and I had 2 adults in my car !

    Good deal! Aren't they packing a V10 now and like 500 hp? But they weight quite a bit.

    Torque is low - I looked it up. I'de probably get my ash handed to me off the line but at high speed 380 tq on 4000lb gave him a disadvantage. I have a lid, LM and FTRA.

    Unless you're running mid to low 12's I'm calling b.s... Low on torque?? They still can bust out 4.3's 0-60, and run the 1/4 in low 12's w/ a trap speed good for high 11's. They'll run to the limited 155 mph all day no problem....

    If anything you'd of had him off the line and soon he'd of caught up and walked you hard till 155 where he cuts out, ever heard the saying "Horsepowers how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you"... Think about it..

    Actually HP is just a number you get from an equation...

    HP = TQ*RPM/5252

    This was off a fsst roll..... let's review...., don't quote 1/4 mile or 0-60 numbers to me. BTW 4.3 0-60 show me that link, that's impressive. but older VW's had fast 0-60 but couldn't breaK 110 MPH. So 0-60 is irrelevant from 70 on up. I reeled him in, he backed down. He had plenty of chance for redemption as I still had 20 or more miles before I turned off the highway. Make sence.

    M5 Stats... I've seen many magizines say 4.3's... 0-60 Irrelavant? That was me showing you that they can't be that low on torque, pulling 4.3 0-60's... Your totally right from 70 on up the 0-60 is irrelavant, though so is torque. Going from a quick roll/highway speeds or god forbid, crazy top speed runs, power is what pulls the car not torque... Don't go on saying horsepower is just a number derived from torque, and it's actual torque pulling the car at highway speeds. I can easily prove you wrong. One easy one. Tell me why you'd downshift on a highway kick? To take advantage of what? Yeah, that's right..

    If someone put $81,200 (MSRP of M5) into an LS-1.....ah, nevermind. Bang for the buck....LS-1 wins everytime.

    That's not the point, I'd just like to know his mods, to even see if he could even keep up with one. Each to his own on that comment haha . Driving a 500 hp fully loaded luxury sedan that'll hold it's own with the world's best cars, set the cruise on 155 w/ the A/C blasting on the Autobahn for hours on end, is worth every penny if you ask me..

    You need to know his mods.....right. But sorry, money is the point of everything. How did the original poster get his mods? Money. How did the BMW driver get his M5? Yup...

    So since I'm a poor guy, humor me.....a guy spends $81,000 for a car that goes 4.3 0-60, we'll use 0-60 since you like to quote those numbers. For 1/8th of the cost of an M5....or about $10,000, a guy can buy a bone stock base model LS-1 Z28 or Formula and will hang with the M5.....LS-1 = 0-60 4.8'ish out the box. With H/I/E the LS1 car is easily at 4.3. With NOS....even faster....and we still haven't broke $15,000.

    No one's debating that the M5 is a nice luxo barge that is fast for it's size. But bang for the buck, man...I keep tellin' ya that is what it's all about.....unless you have Bill Gates type money.

    When did I say you couldn't get ANY other car that fast for less money?? That wasn't my point. You ever ridden in an M5, beat the balls outta most all domestics in all expects, handling, ride comfort, powertrain, and in some cases performance, you name it it'll probably be superior. You get what you pay for, that is all I'm sayin, I'm comparing stock to stock here, apples to apples. You're totally right that you can make a LS1 faster, or just as fast for less money. Wasn't what I was saying at all..
