Fantastic - It pulls well. But I have driven stuff that has a little more punch on the downshift. Heck..my truck really downshifts and jumps. Feels good though

Bill - a buddy and I drove both back to back last night. The 95 at the line lifts the front end and could smoke the tires off the car without a problem, then it gets very flat.
The 97 squeaks the tires from the line and pulls hard and harder as the R'* get into the curve.
Because the 97 does get and go from 0+, I would want to put them both on the track to see which would take the 1/8-1/4. Not sure if the 95 is too exhaust restricted to keep up with the 97. Are the 97'* pretty open on the exhaust, because it is so darn quiet. (at the moment)
