gtr lap time 1.32.70 avg 97.06mph........smoking gt3 by 4sec lolol
as much as I love the GT-R, gotta agree with this. The whole video of the GT3, I kept thinking how much time he is losing by drifting out of the towns so much. A little slide is ok, but smoking tire drifts??? got to be costing some serious time.When the video shows the "Pro" drifting the Gt3 thru the corners, it is like braking instead of accelerating out of a turn. He is killing the lap. It is similar to watching a car do a 3 second burnout at the start of a drag race - you will be far behind the other guy that is hooking up.
Well, consider that Craig Stanton turned a 1:32.2 in a 997tt on street tires with a passenger, then a 1:28.x in a 996Gt3 last month, and that Spec Boxsters (201hp) turn 1:34's at Willow Springs. Heck even a 110 hp 89 Civic can turn 1:37's there. 1:36 in a Gt3 is so far from the car's potential that one would have to wonder how much info can be gleaned from the test. It is true that the 911 platform is more difficult to drive, but that does not mean it is slower in the hands of an experienced driver.the GT3 is rear drive and rear engine. its going to slide and alot! unless modified the GT3 needs to reliy on the driver for a good fast lap.
Its true this is a pro drift driver mainly, but he is not drifting the porsche.
He could do a bit better lap without it slideing so much and the time would be a bit faster but overall the R35 would still win, especially if it were with the other GT-R tires.
