I looked at the best Camaro 1/4 time; 13.19@180km/h, wihch is a trap speed of 112mph

GTR is 10.xx@130mph(210kmh)

So I did a best of 13.22@110mph with a CAI(435hp max!!) 13 1LE..

What kind of BS is this crap???!!!

A 640hp Camaro would be at least in the 12xmph range!

True.

Even a 640hp SS is not taking a 650 GTR, maybe a 700 hp SS. It shifts faster and doesnt lose traction + no AWD drive train loss.

When I was into the boosted AWD thing the loss can be as much as 25%.

Try barely 10%.
http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...-power-ratings

Since you don't know much about the transmission(most dont).
http://www.autoevolution.com/news/ni...ned-35006.html


Calling it AWD is highly misleading because what AWD car has a 10% drive train loss and can fully power just the rear wheels? It really is its own beast.

Nice try, but your article said as high as 17% loss under load. And I actually know how this stuff works but thanks for trying to educate me. I build these cars myself, so I know my way around.

Really? You build GTR transmissions? LMAO I don't think you understand the GTR what so ever, I tried.

You do know that a transmission is basically the same in any automatic? The GTR doesn't use magical parts and run on dragon piss.

Lol um actually it basically does. It's one of a kind, probably the best and most advanced tranny ever put in a production car. Your lack of understanding and respect for it is amusing and is a testament to your lack of knowledge on this subject.

Nope, stating facts ain't trolling. The 17% was straight from the article you gave me, and it's a known fact the tranny fails in those cars. Just pointing that out to you is all.

Up to 17% at high speed load bro what are you talking about!? Other awd autos are probably losing over 30% when the GTR is losing that. Comparatively it loses 9-10%. The trannies only failed in the first year due to improper launching by users. You're pointing out nothing lmfao please educate yourself then we can talk.

Tranny failures are few and far between. That transmission is absolutely astonishing, and I think that if you ever got to drive a GTR, you would realize it is not just the same as an automatic transmission. So different than you think

Yes, congrats on bringing up the top topic of discussion from 2009. lmao

It was due to repeated use of launch control by the user. Nissan removed launch control for 2010, 2011 and put it back in in 2012 with a computer override that would stop the car from using launch control after 2-3 consecutive launches until a cooldown period occurred.

I love when people bring up old facts and try to make them relevant without doing actual reading or understanding the background.

GT-R hater fail.

This race was an insult. First the driver burned tires for 2.5 secs, That right there is an automatic failure. Was this intended to demoralize the ss...seems so to me. Power without traction is useless. smh at this malarky.

But not to take from the car...I love the GTR....and If I could afford one I would own it. Fully prepped and in assault arsenal almost NO car can beat it. And all the corvette guys would agree pretty much.

Driven an 2012 GT-R, cool car yes, but it's a bench race car. Great numbers, but it has no soul. Fast, but not exciting, feels exactly like what it was designed as: a video game for the real world.
