  4. From a rational point of view, yeah I agree too.
  5. It's not the only thing, but it's the main thing. What better test for ultimate all around performance?
  6. Porsche develops its cars there, Ferrari doesn't. End of story.

  8. Is that an excuse for why they get pathetic times there? There's nothing weird about the track.. it's long, has sharp turns, wide turns, straights, up hill, down hill... it's a great track. If you're saying Porsche has an advantage because they develop their cars there you might have a point. It doesn't change the fact that they ARE better.
  9. Exactly <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  10. Exactly what? You posted that link as if to prove that "CGT > Turbo > Enzo"...
  11. I wonder if Porsche will be quicker than Ferrari around Fiorano too
  12. Yeah, so Porsche makes supirior cars, like you said and I know.
  13. the audi rs2 is faster than a mclaren f1. what's your point?
  14. At what? If so, I love that car even more.
  15. Pinin, the Enzo has been seen racing at the N-ring but they chose not to publish their time. Hmm, we can only wonder why... <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  16. Who tested it?
  17. Doesn't matter to me. Perhaps several different people. Not one of them has published a time... not one.
  18. Why would they?! I can undestand if a magazine or something timed it round the track, but as far as I know none have yet.
  19. Doesn't sound like official times, so who cares if they've been running it.
  20. Perhaps, I still like Ferraris more and no N-ring time will change my mind.
  21. The point is, all cars test at the N-ring AND post the times. Look at the list and you'll see that cars from Germany, Italy, France, Japan, USA etc. all test there. You see times for the F430, 360, 575, 550, 355 and more but no time for the Enzo. It's not like it's TOO FAR to get to the track.. all those European countries are close together. The freakin' C6 Z06 already tested there and they had to drag it across the ocean. Nissan has tested its GTRs there, Pagani has tested the Zonda... what's wrong Enzo?

    Let's face the facts. If they post the Enzo times as being slower than a 911, it will hurt the Ferrari image as well as resale value of the Enzo. It is supposed to be there OMGWTFBBQ!!1one!! car, so if it doesn't perform...
  22. The Enzo time is 8:20, happy now?
  23. I don't think that's the Enzo time, and if somebody actually got that time then they weren't pushing it.
  24. No, they just start the clock a little after launch to make their editors seem like pro drag racers.
