  1. If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?
     
  2. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    thats a very good point...this car has over 200 hp more than the mclaren, yet it is a lot slower than the mclaren. explanation?
     
  3. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Aerodynamics, gearing, maybe?
     
  4. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    curb weight
     
  5. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Probably weight and areodynamics...I think the Mclaren weighs like 2500 lbs or something and this ways like 3300.
     
  6. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Damn... I cant belive my eyes... you guys are so stupid... I create this account just to write this post. If you had think juste a little bit and look somewhere else than juste modified cars pages before asking this question, you should have seen that an F1 is 2000 lbs less thant this car. ITS HUGE. One more thing: An F1 is the perfect incarnation of the Ultimate performance car, hundred of millions are invested in thoses cars per years to make them a bit lighthier and a bit faster. Their engine are the summum of what the human intelligence can build. So when some people are stupid enought to ask why an modified Road car isnt faster than an F1 and some other people say "it's a good point" and base the performance only on car's HP, I get angry. Just think a little bit next time and don't say a car is faster than an other only because he has some more HP or hi does 0-60 .1 ou .2 sec faster.

    i had to read this post about 5 times such was the monumental stupidity of it.

    Think about it...The Mclaren weighs about 1050 kg...this weighs 1540kg.. so half a tonne difference there...also, look at the shape of it...it is basically a sedan with two rear doors welded on, so the aerodynamics aren't going to be as good as a purpose built supercar.

    also, doesn't the McLaren f1 do 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds?

    Japps, you need to learn how to spell! LOL!!
     
  9. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Some people need to just realize that slapping a turbo and some performance parts on a car wont make i "fast" you must realize that so much more goes into a sports car.I could go put a turbo on a station wagon but it wont be fast.You have to do so much more to it like lower the weight and think of aerodynamics when you do stuff like modify a car.thats all i have to say to you people...

    Wait, so do you like the Skyline or not? I can't figure it out. I hope you aren't implying they just "slapped a turbo" onto a "station wagon" to make one of the fastest street legal track cars ever made.
     
  11. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    in response to japps and pornstar, u guys r right. i dont like this car at all, and i often feel offended when people try to compare this station wagon with slapped on turbos to a million dollar piece of automobile art. there is ABSOLUTLEY NO COMPARISON between this two cars. which one would u rather have, seriously

    Hold the phone. In general, I agree to what you're saying. You can't compare a turbocharged heavily modified car to a 'million dollar piece of automobile art' as you put it. But give this thing its dues. Stock, the Skyline R34 GT-R is the best car in its price range. As for this beast, it's hardly a station wagon. It's the result of decades of Nissan racing evolving, and then being magnified by a respected tuner. You can't dismiss that.

    And it does beg the question: why can't the million dollar works of art outperform a "station wagon" on the track? I'm not saying we should be comparing these cars, I'm saying give this car its dues as one of the best street legal track cars in the world.
     
  13. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Aerodynamics, weigh, gearing, and the fact that it seems to be slower.
     
  14. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    ....so stupid.
    HP isn't everything and neither is the 1/4-mile or 0-60sec. Nobody cares how much hp your Supra puts out or what your "brother's car" does. You can't compare million dollar F1 cars to cars of this calibur. It's like comparing a tactical nuke to an m80.
     
  15. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    "Slower", what the heck does this mean? Slower 0-60? Slower top-speed? Slower around the track?
     
  16. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    it's slower because if skyline has my wieght it has to take care of compared to F1 no offense the Ferrari ENZO will eat the shit out of all these cars
     
  17. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    No offense, but you're dumb, this is quicker than the Enzo and has a similar top speed.
     
  18. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    i like the GTR, so much so i own an R33, but there is no comparison between it and an F1.
     
  19. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Yes the comparason is a waste, the F1 dominates it.
     
  20. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Ok ladies lets break it down in simple steps,

    #1. Weight difference
    #2. Drag Coefficient difference
    #3. Turbo lag (It takes time to get the maximum out of the engines and the turbos)
    #4. Displacement Difference
    #5. Engine location

  21. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    what do you mean by slower? slower 0-60? slower 0-100? slower around a track? it depends because you can be have a fast 0-60 time but if you cant control it on a track that doesnt mean shit but on the other hand if your faster on a track and your racing quarter mile then the 0-60 time would matter its depends on what you mean by slower and there's no way you can compare a heavily modified street car to a million dollar exotic thats gone through hundreds of thousands of hours of modifying and perfecting.
     
  22. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    i saw this car and let me tell you it will kick any f1 car's butt. anyday. anytime
     
  23. Nice and shiny. Do you like the color?
     
  24. Re: Nice and shiny. Do you like the color?

    No, the color kinda bothers me. I prefer basic solid color cars.
     
  25. Re: If it has so much HP, why is it slower than the F1?

    Yo, he means the F1. As in McLAREN. Yeah this is slightly better in acceleration, but it can't go as fast, handle as good, brake as good, or turn as many heads.
