    1.) Ford owns Mazda. The Cobra owners sued and won. When it became apparent that the Mazda (Ford) RX8 was also underrated from Chassis Dyno results, Mazda (Ford) did volunteer to fix the cars with no litigation needed.
    2.) It's not a matter of how fast the car runs in a drag race, rather an empircal rating of the car on a chassis dyno shows a shortfall. Others have commented that once onthe street the power was "recovered" so that brings us to my earlier observation that there may be a "sensitive" condition causing a tendency to drop to a less agressive ignition map. This is however an assumption on my part, and the problem needs to be isolated. So the exact cause or conditions that cause it to occur can be identified.

    The HP matches my dyno runs on previous cars. I would say we are 20 horses short.
    Good link, what were your times and weight? Do you have a dyno scanned in?

    this negative thread has actually taken a turn for the better. I wish that we could continue it under a different title, though. The media (in particular the AUTOSPIES internet newsletter) has already picked this up a few weeks ago under the "class action" or similar negative headline regarding the CTS-V.....
