Outcome, GTR = slow
After winter: GTR=more slow...

The one you have raced was probably the 480BHP one..

2012+ GTRs are faster than the previous ones.

But you also got faster(70BHP/80NM more than the latest GTR)

Just do not run against one of those from a stand still or on a wet road....it will eat you

As luck should have it, I ran into a black GTR on the way home. It was 7pm, tail end of rush hour, so there wasn't much room, but he tailed me onto the on ramp and wagged a quick right-left-right-left to get 2 cars ahead of me. Bear in mind my car is dirty as can be and have full winter tires on. I sat back for around 3 miles, then decided what the heck, let's have some fun. So we manage to clear the traffic, and I take the hit at my favorite spot in 3rd, wind out 4th and just about to clip 5th, I could not believe what happened.

You can write the code but it is a little easier than that. Find the video you want on youtube and just under the shot you will find a string of words. Choose "share" then a link pops up dont copy that but just to the right will be a link that says embed, choose that by clicking it. Then the code for embedding will appear already highlighted so simply right click on it and copy. Paste that into you post.

When I saw this post I was thinking ya right. No way our beasts can hang with a GTR. This is one car I could see myself with if I sold the beast but they are so expensive as I dont think you you can touch a 2009 for under $55K and that is a tough find.
