Yea, unfortunately those are a little more than the $20.00 shift eliminator.
I understand that the ZR1 is an overall faster car, but look at places like the Nurburgring, on about a 7 minute and 30 second lap, the ZR1 went faster by 0:00.30 seconds. That's the blink of an eye, and the GTR weighs significantly more than the ZR1 and has less power. That speaks very well for the GTR.
While your average drag race or highway roll start race, the ZR1 may win, when it comes to REAL racing, at a track, with turns, the GTR is no slouch.
Did you watch the video though? The ZR1 beat it on the track by a second each lap, also had a faster slalom I believe. Faster braking. The same 0-60.
when i was station in germany you could get the prosche 911 cars for little less than the $.20,ooo ,oo dollars there and you really learn how to handle a car on the autoban at 100 mphs ..
when i came back to the states after beening stationed in germany i got a couple of trickets for droping the hammer down on the freeway ..both times the state troopers let me off with a warning for they had been overseas in germany also and understand the basic fact of driveing on the autoban was one big test track for speed freaks there ..
Yeah, I watched that video when it was brand new two years ago. I had already rented a GT-R by the time they even got that video out.
The GT-R weighs ~500lbs more and has 100hp less at the wheels. I would expect it to get beaten by the lighter, more powerful ZR1, if it didn't that's ridiculous. But even in that video they say things like the ZR1 was "difficult to launch....eventually we got traction" and the ZR1 "is a handful" on the road course.
All this just shows how good the GT-R is, it's a fast car that can be driven fast by anyone. The ZR1 is a car that VERY few people could drive as fast as they did in that video, except for in a straight line, where very little skill is needed anyways.
Get yourself a GLOCK, and lose that nickel plated sissy pistol.
I like your sig...from US Marshalls if I'm not mistaken
