        The time is nice... but the trap still isnt all to impressive for a v8 SC

        Agree with you completely. A bolt on M3 can do this... so does that mean this is weak or the M3 is strong?

        Its weak. but like i said before, if they can get a 120+ trap out of it, im in for one. do these have any kinda DCT tranny option?

        No.. part of the problem. In Europe the S5 has a DSG option I believe.

        RS5 with a supercharger and its DCT should be fast. Im sure it will run faster than the RS4 due to the tranny

        This is an S5, less power to start with than a B7 RS4.
