    I love both cars, but still think they're apples and oranges.

    The GT-R should be compared to the 911 Turbo and other AWD rolling spaceships. The ZR1 or Z06 to Vipers and other meat and potatoes iron.

    So they have competing performance numbers, they're both sports cars. But aside from that, they should appeal to different market segments. I like the differences and would love to see them on a track. Which one wins? Whichever one you like more.

    if that's the case, I will take neither Oli say a stock C6 Corvette (with R-compound) can do 1:23s, Manly's Elise already done 1:23s, Emilio's beater Miata did a 1:25s, Eric's Evo did 1:23s

    so far with officially done numbers

    Oli = 1'22.5 (360whp + suspension/hoosier)
    Manly = 1'24.7 (165whp + r888)
    Emilio = 1'25.8 (160whp + suspension/nt01)
    Eric = 1'23.6 (330whp + suspension/nt01)
    ZR1 = 1'23.8 (stock)
    GTR = 1'25.0 (stock with VDC on?)

    You are not only a walking human data logger. You're also a walking laptime almanac. Do you also know the time/date/track temp/air temp/humidity from those laptimes?

    I like how at the end of the video, the ZR1 does circles around the GTR.

    Good for reference! I'm also assuming these are from the CW configuration?

    Jaku the human data logger...haha.

    last week at SOW, Jaku not only knew what my fastest time of the day was. He also knew how many laps were done under 1:30

    I feel so violated
