What are you guys calling "fastest"?

If it has anything to do with straight line speed, then you can't say MR is "superior" really, but when it comes to handling I think it shows...

O.

Well I'm assuming they mean straight line speed or top speed or something.

It's still one of the best performance cars for the money.

Did you ever deal with people who had their valve guides wear out super bad leaving to a dropped valve?

How would that allow the spring to let the valve drop?

some ls7's have an issue with the value guide wearing out thus causing the valve stem to wear down and eventually snap.

the track ready 458 whatever its name will be, will be faster then the f12. so will the enzo replacement. the f12 is one hell of a car, but it is also more focused on being a gt car instead of a track monster. a 458 is faster around most tracks except the top gear one compared to the mclaren. but not many people would argue the mclaren being faster then the 458.

I had seen that previously, Main things I saw were thermostat failure, and differential issues.
