    Very interesting runs here with interesting results. The CLA45 AMG is stock. Obviously in stock form with its 355 horsepower M133 2.0 liter four-cylinder motor it is much quicker than the MKVII Volkswagen GTI. 45 AMG output is roughly in the ~330 wheel horsepower range stock and the GTI is in the ~220 wheel horsepower range stock. That is a very big spread between the two 2.0 liter four-cylinder direct injected motors. However, that is what tuning is for and here is the mod list for the cars: CLA45AMG - Stock, VDC off, Sports mode, 19" wheels MK7 GTI - Revo, Milltek Full Exhaust, Revo Intake, 19" wheels, wheel HP - 300 So the GTI is around the 300 wheel horsepower mark so it is still down on the CLA45 AMG slightly. However, the GTI has some advantage in a race like this namely that the Golf is roughly 500 pounds lighter and it sends its power to the front wheels rather than all four. In a roll on race this pays major dividends as the GTI pulls away. The first race has the CLA45 AMG on the inside tract and it gets a bit of a jump. The GTI does run it down though. The second run really illustrates the difference with a more even straightaway and start. The GTI just pulls decisively away. The CLA45 AMG of course can be tuned as well but the GTI will always have the advantage of being much lighter. It will be interesting to see how much weight the upcoming R400/R420 model adds with its beefed up components and all wheel drive. Very impressive performance from the VW:

    Did you guys watch the HBO Special Mayweather/Pacquiao The Legends Speak? Of all the fighters that both Floyd and Manny have fought not one picked Manny. Then between Foreman, Lewis and Hopkins Bernard was the only fighter that seemed to think Manny had a chance. I hate Floyd as much as the next guy but I dont see him being beaten. Either way look forward to watching it!

    I don't think that his usual strategy will work with Pac.

    I seriously could fix boxing in like 2 seconds: If at the end of 12 rounds one person has to be KO'd. If not all the prize money goes the charity. No judges needed. Just a ref and two people beating the shit out of each other.

    Mayweather will just run away until the match is over and he wins on points.

    Let's see the finished product. You're making big generalizations based on a mule.

    Won't be able to do any updates here for the next ten days or so, got some work to do. In the interim, will leave one last writeup here. See you all post-draft! Best of luck to your favorite teams. Many seem to think this is the top player in the class, I simply do not agree. Actually, I feel fairly strongly about it. Anyone who'd like to argue for his tape and traits over Aaron Donald can step up to the plate, i'd love to hear it. Len Williams - 6.044 299 Tackle, 'SC Positives: Natural power and hip snap, defeats blockers with heavy active hands and leverage. Can push the pocket and simply pancake interior OL who lack anchor. Outstanding balance and overall coordination. Goes over cut blocks and back side cuts with ease and fluidity, instantly back in the play. Finds the football and plays with good eye level. V active on the goal line and in the red area. Will be a day one starter and tremendous run force player. Does not appear maxed out and can add more functional strength. Could develop into a high motor pass rusher. Plus scheme versatility. Good kid, gets it. Studious note taker and genuinely wants to understand what is happening on a given play. Coachable and v well liked. Negatives: Modest first step and overall twitch. Not at all a sudden athlete, does not initiate first contact often enough and fires off the ball late. Seems questionable whether he will be an impact pass rusher vs. NFL talent inside or outside. Run-first mentality, can be late to diagnose pass. V raw as a pass rusher, no real counter move or inside rip. Flashes a decent inside spin but otherwise, lacks agility and first-step explosion as a rusher. Loses leverage the longer he stays engaged, though good feet allow him to keep balance and stay in the play. I see him as Jared Odrick. Good player? Absolutely, sometimes a pro-bowl type player. But snap in, snap out, not a play you draft with a top 5 pick. I don't see the potential as a pass rusher ever going beyond "occasionally gives trouble when single blocked".
