  2. Porsche is getting lazy.
     
  3. Far too many people put vastly too much importance on lap times.
     
  4. In terms of an all out track oriented version of a supercar, I think track times are very important, especially in comparison to its competition.
     
  5. Pls note that the GT2 in on pilot sports club tire, which is a tire close to semi-R tires spec, the scud is only on Pzero Corsa.

    Rohrl makes magic happen
     
  7. ZR1 > Having AIDS > GT-R
     
  8. only when it's a test made with same drivers, same day etc..
     
  9. Even if they do a test on the same day with the same drivers. Maybe one of the drivers hit the brakes later in a corner with one car and not in the other or he could have made a mistake and he would not get the best time possible. All those differences add up.
     
  10. That's usually true but the GT2 and Scud are intended for track use.
     
  11. The best tests are done the same day but with each manufacturer providing the driver for its own car. C&D has done such.
     
  12. kind of funny because in the first comparo of these two in the Evo magazine in the "Choose your Track Weapon" they actually ended up having the GT2 as the faster car
     
  13. Recently a big scandinavian performance car took place in Sweden where the Scud was 0.6 seconds faster that the GT2 on a small narrow track. For that matte rit was also 3 (!) seconds faster that the new Arial Atom.
    The Scuderia is just totally superior.
     
  14. Not really
     
  15. The bedford layout has changed recently
     
  16. Ye they new some perfect and consistent driver q the stig
     
  17. come again?
     
  18. yeah they added a bigger bend at PifPaf. Reckon that 0.5-1sec a lap slower depending on car type.
     
  19. Have you ever driven one btw?

  21. Where did you findteh Autocar laptimes for Scud and GT2, wish I could get the article. Is there also wet laptime ?
     
  22. Come from Autocar (Magazine) Roadtest of Scud very recently.
     
  23. The GT2 is too much of a handful
     
  24. Any scan available ? Is the wet time available ?
