    Default New Kid on the Block: BRZ v S2K @ Buttonwillow 13CW

    This video opens more questions than it answers, but it is fun to watch.

    Repost. And there is no question that an S2K is a faster car than a BRZ/FRS. I'd wait for the BRZ Turbo to come out before I considered purchasing one.

    P.S. Driving skills at open track days vary wildly. You can't tell anything from a little video snipett of guys at an HPDE in street cars.

    Hello

    I could always give a TrackHQ level of commentary, rather than something made to... incite some controversy


    The lead s2k is indeed holding me back.
    The S2k has more power, but the BRZ picks up speed faster at 90+. In the 2nd and 3rd gear turns, the S2k will walk away from the BRZ.
    The BRZ can stay flat through Riverside without the rear getting loose.
    The BRZ will scrub speed faster under braking due to lack of camber. It also doesn't suffer brake fade with just XP10 fronts. The brakes are twin piston and shared with the WRX fronts, and rears are from the Legacy GT.
    The BRZ had trouble rotating at that point (problem has since been addressed with.... a reverse tire stagger and alignment, FUBAR as Emilio calls it). As a result, it isn't able to power out of the Sweeper properly, losing quite a bit of time. Perhaps I should have tried 2nd...
    The BRZ is more stable at speed; it is far more aerodynamic, and doesn't generate massive rear lift at speed like the S2k.

    The S2k is still subjectively more fun to drive.

    pucsicsal - The fastest unit of speed measurement is not the speed of light, it is the speed of flatout. Hence the BRZs limit.
