    why is it so inconsistant? At times it pulls away and then the gtr catches up, THen it pulls and just stays in that same place for the race. Shouldnt it be pulling and pulling?

    man i'd be panting too lol, i love the ring but it sure looks exhausting. im sure it seems endless when you're on it. a two minute lap seems like a long time imagine 7, 8 or 9. how experienced were these drivers?

    good question. my guess is its because each driver is better at a certain corner. the gtr has its awd, so taking those esses and curves is easy and requires near to no throttle manipulation, thats where i saw it catch up. the gt pulls away in the straights because of its better power/weight ratio and less drivetrain loss.

    edit: i made this post while watching the video, i finished typing and at the end, "YEE-HAW... YEEEEE-HAW!!!" lmao, isnt this guy german or sweedish maybe?

    Porsche GT is a $#@!ing rocketship.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Thanks for the additional info, 7,42 is an amazing time for a non-pro.

    I have a supercharged M3 as a daily driver and a Stock GTR as a lease in my company, my college use it as a daily driver but we change cars now and then.
