    I dont understand, by Supercar do you mean stuff like the SL 55 AMG or maybe a Ferrari 575? I consider NASCARs to be V8 super cars.

    no no no no no no, V8 supercars is practically NASCAR, but for Australia, except we go on normal race tracks, not round ones, and we use Australian muscle cars. U can go see what they look like at http://www.v8supercar.com.au/default.asp

    If you've played Gran Turismo 3, there is a Tickford V8 Supercar in it. But the Holden ones are better (my opinion).

    Here are some pics.

  6. Re:

    aussie V8 supercars have around 600hp
    i think american nascar's are about the same

    the main difference is nascars are built specifically for speedway driving (around an oval circuit) where as v8 supercars are more for handling around a race track, i would say nascars are more for top end speed where as aussie v8s would be more for the acceleration aspect, either way, pit them together in a race on a speedway, naturally the nascar would whip ass, pit them together on a race track and the aussie v8 would whip ass, the nascar would probably crash into a wall :p

    mate, you are exactly right.
     
  8. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    Personally I like V8 Supercars, I prefer a race car that can make both left and right hand turns <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Seriously they both have merit but at our end of the world the V8 Supercars are more in keeping with our style of racing. hence anyone south of the equator and not in the Americas are probably going to prefer them.

    I love how the people who post on this site know nothing. They presume they do, but they don't. A little reading would help. That one guy above said something like I think both nascar and austrailian super cars have about 600 some horsepower. Well no bud, you don't know jack. Nascars slightly moded 350's put out 420 horsepower. And why only 420? Because Nascar makes every car put in a restrictor plate with 4 holes in it that looks like the wholes to a carburator. Without the restrictors, these engines put out over 800 horsepower. And thats lightly moded. Now I don't know anything about Austrailian supercars, but i'm sure none of you do either. But I would like to see your austrialian budy's control cars that fast inches away from each other. Its not as easy as you think. If you don't brake at the right time, give it gas and the right time, or turn at the exact right time. You'll be smashing into one of the cars next to you. I'd like to see you guys do that. Next, know what you're saying before you spray it.
     
  10. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    The V8supercars have 640 horsepower and the racing is just as close and the car contol required is just as much if not more than nascars
     
  11. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I don't think so. With the plate they make around 700hp. Why don't you stop presuming stuff.

    Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I apologize for my previous statement. My information that was given to me was wrong. Let me try this again. Nascars produce "upwards of 750 horsepower" on shorter tracks such as Bristol Motor Speedway. However, on long tracks, such as Talledaga, they are required to use restrictor plates that limit their car to 450 hp. Not 420. This is due to the extreme speeds that would be achieved with 750 hp. And remember, these horsepower numbers come from naturally aspired engines. No Turbo, no super, no N02. I don't know what Austrailian "supercars" do, but I'll look that up too and see what I find.

  13. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I also have another point to make. Everyone says that "nascars can't handle, all they can do is go in circles." Comments like these come from unintelligent or grossly misinformed people. There are some tracks that aren't circle tracks. Let me just name a few. Infineon Raceway and Watkins Glen. And for cars that "can't turn and can only go in circles," those are some pretty tough tracks to race on. Oh wait, maybe they can turn. HMMMMMM. And thats not even what they're made for. Watch American cars that are built for Roadcourses.....C5-R Corvette. How many Le Mans have they won over the past couple of years in the GTS class??? Yeah, thats what I thought. I'll just sit here and wait until someone comes up with a bulls&!t contradiction that makes no sense or comes with any proof.

  14. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    i must say that V8 supercars is way better than crappy NASCAR's. (i'm an Aussie!). I don't see the point of driving around in circles, we don't here in Aus. Except the Queensland Raceway at is a boring track.
    but i must say this..... Fords are unreliable!. (e.g Bathurst, Craig Lowndes had 1 plastic bag over his Falcon's front air intake and it over heated and his Ford was out of the race, But on the other hand Mark Skaife had 4 plastic bags over his Commodore's air intake and he got over the line in first place!)

    Long live Holdens! and V8 Supercars!

    V8 Supercars shite all over NASCARs...

    GO FORD!!!!
     
  16. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I would pay a lot of money to see Dale Earnhardt(if he was still alive)one more time. Except ide want him to face some litte aussie in his little holden while Dale is in his Black # 3 kicking his **s on any track in the world
    NASCAR car will destroy your little road racing cars
    Ide also like to see a aussie driver after doing barrel rolls down a Daytona straightway get out of the ambulance get back in the car and back on the end of cars from his own cuation lap.Every NASCAR fan should remember that one.
    Forever a fan of Dale
     
  17. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    well put bighead but all we actually need in the # 3 is earnhardt jr now he is just as tenaciuos as his old man was LONG LIVE THE #3
     
  18. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I miss Earnhardt. What a loss.
     
  19. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    V8 supercars all the way. Watching a car drive around an oval just doesnt do it for me.
     
  20. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    NASCAR and V8 supercars r both shithouse. japenese turbo, sick em rex!
     
  21. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    to be truthful, I'm a huge japanese car fan, but trying to tell these guys that a wrx is going to take on a modded v8, nascar or otherwise, is kinda stupid. it's got good launch speed, but there's no real power to match later on. it's still a 4.
     
  22. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I want to see an aussie V8 car do 200 mph with a restrictor plate and still have amazing accelerationas a nascar car does
     
  23. Re:

    Hey man, V8 supercars is cooler than nascar, and nascars do not have short gear ratios for acceleration, as the race at 190mph+. And by the way, anyone who is trying to be correct by saying that all cars are an atrt and all cars are equally cool(imports,musclecars)Eat SHIT. Imports eat ass. I am not just some hillbilly saying this either also, because I have evidence that this is true. Think of it like this, buy a stock Z28, 24000 dollars, stock 1/4 mile 13.8 sec. buy an exhaust intake and cam for 1500 dollars, holy moly, 11 sec 1/4 miles. Buy a Honda Civic for 19000 15.9 sec 1/4 mile. Buy a cam, intake,exhaust tires, nos setup and a turbo all for 10000 dolla. 11 sec 1/4 mile. so spend 25500 on a Sweet sounding pavement punding camaro or 30000 for a gay ass fart sounding civic, not to mention ,waht car will fet you the ladies.
     
  24. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    Hell yeah, thats what i'm sayin.
     
  25. Re: whats better, NASCAR or V8 Supercars???????

    I have seen Nascars having races at Bathurst as support races for the Bathurst 1000 a few times in recent years. So yes, they can handle, and yes they do have some grunt. I am not sure which (Nascars or V8 Supercars) was faster around the track though. I would guess V8 Supercars.
