    Default Titans Clash! AMG GTS, Nissan GTR, Porsche Turbo S

    @ WSIR

    "The _______, though, was another story. "I want to make love to that car," he said. "I want to pull down its back bumper andó" Well, you get the idea. "It's one of the best-handling cars I've ever driven." Randy Pobst

    Then there is this:

    "The _________ is a big Miata, whereas the ________ is a big WRX. The Subaru will have more power and all-wheel-drive traction and will be quicker when measured, but wouldn't you rather be driving the eminently fun Miata? In this case, I'd much rather be behind the wheel of the howling-mad ________.
    "

    Fill in the blanks:

    Strange - the lap times seem good besides the GTR (as always, Randy drives WSIR very well imo) but cornering speeds listed seem pretty low. Maybe it was a hot day? 110mph through T8 in the GTR is almost too slow to believe.

    In comparison, the first time I went to Big Willow, on pretty old Firestone Wide Ovals, I had a best minimum speed of 119mph. Everything after that, even in the June, has been well over 120.
