Thats the advantage of DOHC
Jim, Why don't you head down to my neck of the woods and we cna do some "hands on" testing of this.
The 'Rora will beat an SSEi in top end most likely. The SSEi will have a good launch and some good strong points thru the speeds, but the Arora will also. I would expect a race that mimicked something like leap frog for the first 80mph. After 80 the v8 stamina and power my start to edge out over the SSEi.
