My clutch is slipping, my tires are bald, one of my spark plugs is bad... lol...

Please lets not start that 'if ...' thing. The car did great, if Nissan wants to go prove it on a dry day, I say go for it. But I hope we dont start 'guessing' at what it could be or could have been given this or that.

This is not to start a fight, just trying to avoid the 'mustang and camaro' type of talk .... lol.

I'll probably regret posting this.. but oh well...

Calm down man I was just making an observation. A bit over reacting aren't we??

FYI I can say whatever I want.

I thought I read somewhere that they plan on bringing it back for another crack in the dry. Correct me if I'm wrong. But in regards to this video, awesome driving.
Yeah I read that somewhere. I'd imagine they may be able to shave off a second. Amazing performance considering the GT2 RS did the same distance in 7:24 flat!

Anyone else notice that he was driving in automatic mode? I think from now on I will forego paddle shifting!

I never bother with paddle shifting, why would I think I could do it faster then the computer. Auto, RRR, if I want to shift I got a 6 speed car for that

Yup, I am seeing that too, whats interesting, is he looks like VDC is OFF ??? Can others confirm?

Still in a straight line, I dont think I can beat the computers, on a track, its nice to be able to 'hold the revs' when you know you'll be right back on a gear, but even then I sometimes find that I'll forget to shift again, lol, and the computer takes over, and when it does that, it takes me out of Manual mode. Its my first 'paddle' car, maybe I should work on it more. Still love Auto RRR.
