  1. ZR-1 laps the ring in 7:26.4

    the fantastic transmission and the insane traction capabilities.

    AHAHAHAHA! TRUTHNESS!

    These morons have been waiting for the OMFGSUPERMEGAVETTE for years, and now that it's here all they can talk is about the 70K crapanesse Datsun...




    Sounds to me like they're way too scared of Godzilla.

    George Lucas and Spielberg are still massaging it a bit.

    the reason the gtr is so fast is because of sevral things. first it seems like nissan has had thegtr at the ring doing hot laps for over a year. thats probably more than even porsche has spent on any one car. Second this is nissans halo car making a comeback. they knew it had a hell of a reputation to live up to. this is like ferrari bringing back the 288 GTO. they went the extra mile and then some to make sure the engineering and execution were perfect. thirdthe driver aides are arguably the best any production car has ever had. not saying the car can drive itself. I'm sure nissanstest driver are some seriously talented drivers. but the electronics here are able to severely limit human error.


    so we have perhaps the most heavily engineered car ever that mechanically is top notch dispite being somewhat heavy. In the same car reside electronics that can help a even novice driver look pretty darn good.(even if the car doesn't drive itself) being hot lapped around a track more extensively than probably any car to date, by some incredibly talented drivers.

    what you get is a lap time that seems impossible. but perhaps it is the only car to lap the ring so close to its maximum potential.

    the gtr is approximately as fast as a zo6 an impresive feat for a car that has less power and more weight. but it seems much faster because it is so much easier to drive A combination of mechanical and electrical genius on nissans part.

    perhaps if the ZR1 and the other cars capable of this level of performance recieved as much tracktime as the GTR their times would fall considerably as well.I wouldn't be surprised if the carrera GT was capable of a 7:15-7:20 time but limited tracktime and driver error have prevented this from happening. lets face even f1 drivers aren't perfect.

    Well, shit. Nissan sort of had an easy time with this. While a whole lot of other cars try to be 'purist,' the GT-R's reputation is a car dressed to the nines with electronic help. And all they had to do was look at the list of things the FIA has banned from F1 to know what's good.

    big thing holding the CGT back is tires.

    or it's big engine, depending on how you look at it

    LS9 dyno
     
  21. ZR-1 laps the ring in 7:26.4

    that's...not really a proper dyno chart now is it.
     
  22. ZR-1 laps the ring in 7:26.4

    technicaly its not a real dyno chart that you would see... its a true chart for the manufacture. when the release the charts now they look like this. i forget why its not all jagged like when i get my car dynoed.

    but alot of manufactures are doing this kind of chart when they release. i know nissan did it too, they even had someone explain why (tho im not going to look it up :p).

    its called smoothing

    and the fact it has an SAE number on it is a good sign for accuracy.
     
  24. ZR-1 laps the ring in 7:26.4

    I finally seen this video, the ZR1 is all over the place in that shit...the massive horsepower on the straights is definatly making up for its sloppyness around corners

    Needs a better driver.
