You think I care if I win or lose as long as I have the content? Bro, bring NHRA cars for all I care.

[quote=Sledgehammer;562045]You need to accomplish the following

1. Pick some dates that work for you in the short term say the next 60-90 days so we can all get on the same page and be ready to run.
2. I need final dates to arrange transport and a room at the RC Philly
3. We need to setup the runs.... Bottom line is we will all run from whatever speed you choose to start at and end at. It doesn't matter for us what speed we run from at all
4. Storage: I assume you have relationships with via Gintani with local tuners/shops that can store the car. Of course the RC has garage parking thats secured as well. Your choice on how you handle that, Reliable will drop the car wherever you desire of course. "

Sticky created the thread EVO standing kilometer drag race between the 2014 Nissan GTR and Porsche 991 Turbo Cabriolet with launch control.
" An interesting drag race here between two cars we all know very well. The Nissan GTR and Porsche 911 Turbo are constantly compared to one another. Nissan fired the first volleys when they made sure the world knew they were testing the GTR's performance against the 911 Turbo. The GTR during development was constantly spotted with a 997.1 Turbo trailing the test team. Since both have twin turbo six cylinders, dual clutch transmissions, and all wheel drive, these comparisons are only natural.


The 2014 GTR is no slouch performance wise especially in a straight line. It is capable of 11.0 second flat 1/4 mile runs with trap speeds in the 124-125 mile per hour range. The 911 Turbo is a bit of a conundrum as performance testing has shown inconsistent figures. EVO chose the 991 Turbo cabriolet for whatever reason which is the heaviest and slowest 911 Turbo model.

The 991 Turbo has 520 horsepower from its 3.8 liter direct injected flat-6 motor which is 25 less than the 2014 GTR. At roughly 3600 pounds the 911 Turbo is about 250 pounds lighter than the GTR but heavier than the coupe. Speaking of the 991 Turbo coupe, independent testing on the 1/4 mile drag strip showed a 10.9 @ 126 1/4 mile pass.

On paper, this drag race should be close. As the video shows however, it isn't that close. The 991 Turbo Cabriolet spanks the GTR. How do we explain this? We can't. The 991 Turbo Cabriolet is quicker to 60, quicker to 100, and 6 miles per hour faster through the standing kilometer. Sometimes the Porsche 991 Turbo performs like a beast, sometimes it doesn't. This time it certainly did. "
