Snorman are you a troll on every board you are on? It's sad watching it knowing you actually have knowledge to add but choose to troll instead.

Your first post on this thread. Making excuses for your troll friend when his actions where brought out. Only losers post to a thread and then bash any response to it on another board. Van is a tool and you are also by defending him.

The only "legit" offer would be Sebring and only if he is not associated with the track. I wonder what his real motive is for the challenge anyways.

Hopefully temperatures in December will be cool and heat soak will not be an issue for either vehicle and we can get some actual data.

Any takers? Let's run!

What is it you're trying to prove here? Comparing two cars with drivers that may have very different skill levels...? While it might be fun, the discussion would rage on no matter the outcome...

I would say the magazine test are the best data we can get because the numbers are obtained with one and the same "professional" driver who is equally familiar with either car.

Good luck with that. Feel free to post times. These cars are meant to be run. Posts with actual times and what mods if any are usefull. I plan to run Watkins Glen and post my times. I have no ontrack experience only SCCA Solocross.

Getting along is nice. Seems that the person issuing the challange is on some ego building trip here. Posts normal challanges and then posts trash in another board.

I want to try my hand at Sebring or Daytona with the GT500 and ('12) GT-R.

Would like to see your times with both cars. My money would be on the GT-R.

I've been in a 13' GT500 but never in a GT-R. I was really close to getting the Shelby but I never even thought to look at the GT-R's. They are really rare where I'm at. Which do you prefer on the street?

So someone from SVT came here and put down a challenge so where are all the ZL1 guys who kept dogging the Shelby as being inferior to the ZL1. Go and prove it, here is the chance. So what happened to the 2nd race vs Torque? Did Torq sort out the ZL1 heat soak issue that was the supposed problem why Van ate him up last time?

Yesterday, on my way to Costco, I had a new white Boss messing with me on University. Light turns yellow ahead and he nails the brakes to sit next to me. He's blipping the throttle the whole time, I'm watching the cross-light in R-mode. Cross light goes red, I floor the brake and throttle and activate launch control. I let him jump and he goes hard. By ~300' I was out about 5 cars on him. By about the 1/8th it was 8-10. First time I have done that on the street, as I usually race at the track these days. My '12 has intakes, midpipe, injectors and tune.
My '13 cut a 1.62 60' last week at E-town on the first pass and they threw me out.
They are very hard to beat. On Friday I watched helplessly as my buddy's GT-R seriously gapped me in the GT500 at OSW. It was kind of humiliating. Conversely, there is a (cough) vid out there of a '13 GT-R seriously humbling a '13 GT500 from a dig on the street but getting its ass kicked from a roll.
S.
Damn. That about sums it up.

have you kept up with the performance results done by mags between the two cars? It isn't favoring our mightly ZL1.
I hope someone whose ZL1 has gotten the heat soak issue resolved and added a a few more ponies accepts this challenge.

Pdari I really don't think there are any good intentions behind this so called challenge but anyone that was calling the Shelby inferior needs to have their head examined. As to the whole Torq race deal I remember the thread and if i'm not mistaken Torq was testing the prototype heat exchanger in their ZL1 and not racing anyone when Van passed him on the track. At least that's what I thought but to keep down the confusion we will call that a victory for the GT500 . I'm pretty sure he won't have a problem finding a ZL1 to race in Florida whether it's someone from this site or not.
