Just got home.
Short version: McLaren has a definite power advantage, Ferrari launches better. Both cars would benefit hugely from more traction.
Run 1: McLaren malfunctions mid-run (pcm failure, drive to dealer, etc) and Ferrari wins, pulling [email protected]
in the 8th. I get on the phone, McLaren tech gives me reset instructions. Normalcy returns.
Run 2: no time slip, Ferrari loses traction on the 2-3 shift and backs out of the run.
Run 3: clean run, both cars have traction control lights on past 60mph. Neck and neck in the 8th with Ferrari turning [email protected]
and the McLaren [email protected]
McLaren powers through the big end to the win, [email protected]
vs Ferrari's [email protected]
Run 4: sun has set, remaining traction goes away. Ferrari gets 2.2 60' and gets a little sideways midtrack (!!) , McLaren gets 2.3 60', short shifts to 2nd, hooks and runs [email protected]
At that point the Ferrari called it a day. McLaren did a few more passes with Launch Control enabled, best of [email protected]
Conclusion: on the street, 458 vs MP4 could go either way from a dig; from a roll the McLaren will gradually walk away.
Video to come after I get some sleep.
