ZR1 posts new 7:22.4 ring time

Discussion in 'American Cars' started by lucky strike, Oct 28, 2008.

  1. What are you talking about, both the ZR1 and ACR are quicker than that s***box driven by a PS3. The z06 will be quicker around most tracks other than nurburgring
  2. Assuimg the 'ring is a straight strip with no curves :p

    note: sarcasm
  3. why not? the ring is pretty long so differences become bigger, the zr1 has way more power and weight less, i also think that cars such as enzo, carrera gt, gt2 can do better times than actuals, it's just about trying, nissan engineers lapped the ring for a while until managing that time, and now gm is doing the same, with a faster car.
  4. I'm already accounting for the length of the track.
    At the 'Ring, where you need total commitment, the GT-R should do exceptionally well, far and above what its power/wt suggests.
  5. Love you guys.
  7. All that's missing now is a letter from Porsche how it couldn't be possible
  8. 'ring/zr1/gtr threads are 75% of the reason i visit sc.net these days......some of the funniest shit ever.
  9. and it already did far above what it's power suggest, ok i can believe that the GTR did 7:28, but it was obvious that they managed it in some way, and the way was lapping the shit out of the ring until they learned every #$%#ing turn, but obviously when a lighter/more powerful car does the same as GM is doing this is what happens, i think that it is stupid comparing cars with ring times, different tires, driver, road conditions, rain, wet, humidity everything affects a lap, and most of all when it lasts for more than 7 minutes.
  10. Well, yeah, why wouldn't you lap the shit out of the 'Ring to learn every #$%#ing turn? If you have the budget, have at it. You're not there to produce a lap time that 95% of the population should reproduce.

    I think 'Ring times are being blown out of proportion and there are a lot of variables. However, Porsche's claim of their same-day testing of the GT-R still sticks out like a sore thumb against other same-day testing.
  11. These ring times are becoming nothing more than a penis size competition.
  13. I really don't know how you people even bother to believe these "manufacturer claims". Companies will change shit on their cars if they feel it is gonna make it faster.That is why they are at the ring in the first place ,to test. Even if those parts are not available on the current car, they most likely will be on it's successor. The most legitimate times are the ones that come from third party tests like magazines but the manufacturer claims are still in the nurburgring lap times thread WTF!! BTW how many more threads have to be made about this crap because the same things are said in each one and it is starting to get pointless.
  14. I want someone to drive the GT2 properly to see what it can actually do.
  15. I think I will start another thread about how you think there should not be so many threads about Nring GTVETTEACR times.
  16. i'm not saying that nissan and Gm shouldnt lap the ring, i'm saying that people cares too much about them.
  17. Man, you guy are too funny!! Porsche is hilarious and this GM supposed test just made me ROFL so much I wet my pants!!
  18. That is amazing that the ZR-1 ran 4 seconds faster! Its still with in the ZR-1s performance envelope to make it believable.
  19. I'd rather have the bird flu.
  20. The ZO6 is even faster then the GT-R in GT4 Prologue which is really funny no matter the track even with the GT-R in the ZO6's slip stream the GT-R still gets rapped LOL@ GT-R fan boys.

    Good one dude, you're "unique".
  22. You just made my day....<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
