  3. Just watching it right now, this is actually retarded. It's not even the straight line speed that's blowing my mind (even though that's ridiculous) the cornering attitude and speeds, wtf....
  4. Yeah, for a lot of them it looks like he's not even slowing down at all, I love the section between the two carousels.
  5. Is it me or he's taking early apexes ?

    That video indeed seemed fast forward, some turns were just being taken too fast <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> I mean, even in Gran Turismo, 300km/h+ after Flugplatz is insane.
  6. You have to take most of the apexes quite early on the ring to keep your speed.

    It is indeed mindblowing, his turn in speeds are so high. LMP car for the road wich will do 3l/100km when asked.
  7. Yeah this thing has some crazy downforce, look at the rear diffuser element on it. As for the turn ins, check out the steering angle he is having to put on turn in... I can see quite a bit of understeer so I think that explains the turn ins
  8. the sound.

    I'm really happy it doesn't sound terrible.
  9. I'v heard it live a few weeks ago testing on the ring and on the way up to the Karussel it sounded like a animal. High pitched mechanical noise. We could hear it clearly 2km away.

  11. Awesome and worrying. Way too much like Gran Turismo.

  12. how is that?
  13. It looks like a videogame with all the assists on. Esp if yo think about the power to weight ratio of the car.

  16. The speed and therefore energy involved inevitably leads to a too big a crash. Theres no retry in real life.

    The awesome part was for the car. I like it. Worries for the drivers. Not that I would not understand some of them having the need to triumph. The Nordschleife recordbreaking seems a bit like the car world counterpart for Tourist Trophy.

    Offtopic, I was in a cinema to see the TT3D: Closer to the Edge movie, excellent documentary. The 3d was not special, but as a movie a definitive watch for any petrolhead.

    That link is all bumbled, here's a working one, you can just pick the model. http://www.porsche.com/international/modelstart//all/

    I made one earlier, not much to choose besides color and wheels, and a couple of liveries on the Weissach package model.

  21. Well of course, I just wanted to point out that the "all assists on" comment was silly, it's all the driver and the way the chassis naturally behaves. Also interesting that it can apparently do 6:48 with slicks, that's right up there with the Radical SR8 and Zonda R.
  22. I know he didn't use the real ones (he clearly slides it) but the car is so good that it looks like a videogame with all the assits on. Those that can make you enter a corner much faster and accelerate way too early etc
  23. seriously, you would expect a car with that much hp to slide all over the place(see gt40 video in another thread), somehow it doesn't. it's insane.
  24. Yeah those cross ply tyres that porsche use are pretty sweet
  25. wet vs dry track
