yes, but if you read the article there is good reason to believe they were given a ringer car, probably not likely to see those numbers in an Si availabe to the rest of us

i dont think a wheel on the hub would make a dramatic difference but i hope they under rated the whole lineup!
The car over all would be laying down in the 170 range of power to the ground. There is more then just the wheels that take power from the engine. All that rotating weight + friction going on between parts like the clutch & flywheel, the output shaft & all the gears etc.. There is a good deal of areas that take a little power here & there, still good numbers though :)

I think thats a bit much for a hub to wheel loss. That dyno was at the hubs which still accounts for rotating weight + friction going on between parts like the clutch & flywheel, the output shaft & all the gears etc. The hub to wheel loss would be a maybe 10 ponies at the most
