    Its a nice comparison, but "realistically" in spirited driving most of us would be between 2nd & 3rd gear from 60-90km/h.

    yeahh very true
    there was no 60-90 in 2nd or 3rd for the mps
    i think thats quite impressive as its as fast as cars that cost like 5 - 10 times more lol

    I believe that its its a weapon in 3rd and in 4th, i had a run with a stock C63 and new m3 (well they were having a run and i joined in) long story short when they had the roll on from 70 i was shocked that i pulled away from the M3 and was side by side with the C63 and then into 4th pulled away from him too lol.

    What is a scary thought ... (They say fwd cars have no traction) i have traction in 3rd at 300kwatw which is double standard. I know that they are comparing non modded cars, No wonder why im worrying fast motorbikes!!!

    And with a couple of simple add ons brakes, rear swaybar, shocks, good tyres the mps would worry those cars in the corners too

    Our 4th gear is a short gear. Theirs is tall. Makes sense that we'd eat them up... Mazda Pride!!!

    funny according to wheels its not that fast haha

    Those number would be close to accurate, but it would be 1 hell of a driver... its .6 faster then RS Focus... every comparo has had us .2 or something behind in 3rd, 4th, and 5th but in sixth from 60 we are faster.

    I'd compare the MPS against a VE GTS i reckon you'll be shocked... On the road they are quicker because for them 60 or 70 km/h is peak power 2nd gear so they have an edge but tell them 4th gear roll from 60 and good game ^^

    Cars included are vipers and Corvette, American cars,And a few strange Europe only cars, so very likely its recorded in MPH

    And looking at the age of the cars, the focus tested would be the last mdel RS, not the current one.

    Interesting stats , in all said & done the mps is an amazing car stock , but a real weapon when modded , Lukes mps could star in the movie "The Untouchables" I have 224 kw atw's I can nail a porsche gt2 , Bmw M3 ,including a Evo 10 in a straight line & through the twisties , a lot of high performance cars in Cairns have been stung by madaz , it shouldn't be a suprise to anyone on here , a stock mps with a very good driver claimed 4th outright in Targa Tasmania this year , the mps needs to be driven at 10/10 to really shine against so called big money supercars , I am positive that next years Targa will see the outright contenders carrying their worry beads & reciting "Hail Marys" before starting each stage .
