Yep it was a good read
I liked the paragraph's:
With that torque plateau the Typhoon’s Strength is its in-gear acceleration. While it’s out pointed to 100km/h by the more powerful Clubsport (5.82secs versus 5.96). It’ll Thump the Clubbie in any rolling start in any gear you can choose except, maybe Reverse (we didn’t try that)
There’s little in it from 40km/h at the bottom of third gear, But the Typhoon starts to get ahead from about 3800 RPM and it’s clear by a car length at the next shift.
Punch both cars from 80km/h in 6th and its just embarrassing for the HSV. It gets belted from the kick and the poleaxing gets worse with every meter traveled.
