Smile 997TT almost as fast as 996GT2

Just what I expected
Nice video.
The speed of the 997TT seems to approximate that of the 996GT2. These are fast fast fast cars!
I drive with my friends GT2 and the speeds I see in the 997TT seem almost identical to what happens when I race against the 996GT2.
Great Video "G"

Like the M6 needed an additional weight penalty against the 997tt This was the only other car I would have considered in this price range. I still think it is too small but obviously very very fast

We will see what happens when I drop the upcoming turbo in my car!!! That should overcome the weight penalty then some

JIDEX, I see that you seem to relish the few instances the M6 gets smoked?! Interesting perspective to have on the M6 Forum!?

I do not like seeing the M6 getting smoked but I am also a realist
I race with a GT2 regularly ( a good friend of mine)
I will say this though. These videos by Gustav would've looked a whole lot different if the the M6 had been allowed to race all the way up to 180mph.
Its truly a fast car and I always stop the Gt2 from pulling once the speeds hit 140mph....the pace of acceleration of the M6 at these speeds is truly amazing.
I have videos to show but I need to edit them first.
I am a true M6 fanatic and I was indeed sad to see the M6 lose this particular race but a race is a race and a 'VIDEO IS WORTH A MILLION PICTURES"

Nice videos, but I don't understand why you put only 1 guy in the other car? Would be fairer to have equal conditions. But we all know that the 997 Porsche is a faster car than the M6
