24 Hours of Lemans

Hopefully someone besides me watched the diesel Audi and Peugeot's run at Lemans over the weekend. Absolutely badass to see that the diesels were among the front runners and had such a huge lead. I was disappointed to see the top Audi break and be put out because of something stupid but it wasn't an engine failure and they had a HUGE lead at 21 or so hours when they lost a wheel. One thing I didn't see was the huge black clouds of smoke that us truck guys make to get the huge horsepower and torque the Audi's and Peugeot's were making. Just goes to show where the future of diesel performance is going.

Are the diesels still running 2x the boost and a 1/3 more displacement????

Audi was given too many concessions last year all at once, and now cry when there's any mention of reeling them in.
