Normally they do it in August or early Sept. Does anyone know if they would do one this year?
Although I believe that to be true, how come in one of the drag races the GTR ran 11.0 but the next year it ran 11.2?not sure why thats a problem. You guys do realize that mag times for the 1/4 mile aren't done by dropping a flag and crossing a line right? The time they quote adds a 1 foot rollout, weather correction, altitude correction, surface correction, etc.. A dusty concrete airport runway is going to give different times than a prepped drag strip or asphalt road.
If they actually ran them the yes, .2 could be feasible, but if they correct per the manufactures specs then why the difference?On the comment 11.0 vs 11.2. Does every single GT-R run the exact same time every time? Why is it hard to fathom that comparing two different cars a year apart will net .2 difference in the 1/4 mile? Some have also said that 2013's are faster than newer ones too. Which I am sure is a factor too.
no its just a case of different cars tested on different days different conditions ect. MT tested the NISMO a second time different car different day and it ran a 10.9By looking at parts 3 and 4 it shows the GT-R track edition having a better 1/4 mile time in part 3 than the GT-R NISMO in part 4. Is that right? I have heard that the NISMO has a more gradual power increase when accelerating compared to a normal GT-R. Maybe that has something to do with it? Different programming?
another interesting note on that car was the one tested that ran the 11.1 or whatever was the a pre production car that they commented on the leguna lap it felt a little down on power. during the head to head with the Z06 they were given a production car and it ran the 10.9. in good weather its a mid 10.8 car. I ran [email protected] and there was still a bit left on the table. its not much if any faster 0-60 than the best of the 2013s but it does excel more in overtaking speeds as the 60-130 is almost a half sec quicker than a normal GTROh I see. I just figured the 50 extra horsepower in the NISMO would run a little faster than that.
