Would've been even worse for the 355 if they raced from a dig. I imagine with AWD the 993 blasts out of the hole pretty hard.

I don't know, you don't even hear the Ferrari make a sound. What happened to that glorious wail of the Ferrari V8??? Dude wasn't even trying!

It really did seem like the Ferrari was short shifting. F355's are quick. I've been researching them for about 9 months now.

There's another youtube video out there of a 355 getting the best of a Gallardo... oh, here it is:

Lotus Espirit is faster than F355 when that came out, it was known as the Ferrari eater.

993 Turbo... well... the turbo is just so easy to make it go fast.

That Gallardo driver did not know what he was doing & the 355 driver was jumping the gun every chance he got. There should be no real contest between those 2 cars. I'm wondering if the Gallardo driver had a 400 pound passenger???
