    Thanks for the detailed information - correction noted

    Horsepower incorrect - As stated on Ruf's website:
    MAXIMUM POWER AT 8370 / MIN:CTR2 520HP / CTR2 SPORT 580HP
    MAXIMUM TORQUE AT 5,820 / MIN:CTR2 505LBFT / CTR2 SPORT 575LBFT
    So, the horsepower should be 520hp for the non-sport versions, and in-game the CTR2 has 572hp, which should be the Sport's figure, but does not have the Sport's torques - it only has 505LBFT of torque. 
    Please look into that discrepancy.

    In regards to the webpage by @PlantedZebra, that car for sale has the upgraded engine.
    "This car has the later more powerful 580 BHP, twin-turbocharged, flat-six powerplant and is mated to a six-speed transmission developed in-house by RUF. The 'W09BD0' VIN also indicates that this is a rare all-wheel drive CTR2."

    Bump

    I can see above the specs taken to make adjustments to the RUF

    The result is that the 0-60 has not changed to reflect the specs, but the 0-100 time has. This has dropped the MRA from 109 to 78

    Was this intentional? If the 0-60 of the RUF was 3.6 stock, not 3.3 - we would see the MRA still drop, but not as viciously. Could this be clarified please? I feel an RQ29 90's Dragger with 78 MRA is a bit radical given what it was.

    Okey, if changed this so why BTR2 with 0-60 4.1 win every time at this moment

    Lower 0-60 doesn't mean that it's faster in drags.

    It's like asking why the Nissan GT-R with sub 3 seconds 0-60 loses to a McLaren F1 in drags.

    And I do agree the BTR2 have incorrect MRA, someone made a post about it too I believe.
    and the Power to weight ratio of both cars says the same thing too.

    CTR2 -- 0.42
    BTR2 -- 0.29
    with much better ratio for the CTR2 I simply can't see why it loses.
