Hell yea, it looks better. I'd buy a 25000 dollar V6 over the GTR on looks alone. haha. Not that I wouldn't take a GTR if someone gave me one.


By the way I love near Longview, so I'll have to go by and look a the progress soon.

I like the GTR. I even sorta like the look of it. But simply put, its a racecar for dummies. the techno;ogy takes care of things that real drivers could allready do. Alot of the car is redundant in that respect. Which is why I take anybody posting on the GTR forums laughing outright at this attempt with a grain of salt. Anybody with a frickin head on their shoulders would realize that you could pretty much modify ANY car to beat the GTR.

Even a Pinto? Yes, EVEN A PINTO!! I've seen a Pinto smash a Corvette before..lol.

The issue with the GT-R going so "slow" was because of different drivers, different days, different weather etc etc. I was there during the second run and saw it with my own eyes.

I have raced at The Nürburgring many times, last time being just a few months ago. I visit the track at least twice a year for "tourist driving" and twice a year for official racing.

HP is obviously important on a track like The Nürburgring, considering a hight difference of approx. 900feet and many long straights, but is far from everything. Just because a car has 2000hp won't make it go faster because it then has to brake harder and have a better suspension to keep the speed through the corners. Every part of the car is as important then the next. A well balanced, well sorted car is everything at that track!

May I ask who is driving? As I am sure you know, the drivers of the any car that has gone faster then 8min full lap, is no amateur. They say it takes about 150 laps to know your way around the track (14 miles, over 100 corners, many dips, bumps etc that WILL kill you if taken wrong) and another 100 laps to really be able to drive fast. I do believe a really good driver could take a highly modified Camaro and do a 8min lap, but where on a forum 30sec may not sound like much, is actually a life time on that track!

Will you be gutting the car completely? Full roll cage? What are the specs on the suspension and brakes besides who's making them? R-spec tires, street tires or slicks?

When will you be doing the actual timed run? On a manufacturer day? Because there are extremly few days that the complete track is open to the public without paying 10-15K USD for 2 hours track time. The tourist driving is not recommended for timed runs due to traffic, plus the Döttingehöhe straight (the long one) is closed and you have to enter the paddock before going out again.

I ask this because I have been involved in a few record runs and trials, and I know how hard it is to get in there.

I hope you guys take the time to answer my questions as I am extremely interested in this project as The Ring is my second home

I seriously hope you guys do pull this off, and I wish you all the luck!

If you have any questions about setting the car up for the track, or anything at all just send me a PM.


I would love to have you guys answer the above questions! I am extremely interested in the project, and really hope it turns out the way you want it to! If you guys havce any questions about the track or it's surroundings just let me know.


My project "Cammedmaro" is actually heading over to The Nurburgring in April, my wife and I are racing the Scuderia Hanseat once again and are going to try and defend last years win for us!

Here is a short vid of my Track prepped Camaro

If they're having a hard time anteing up the 25k for a V6 Camaro...I seriously doubt they'll have the 10-15k for the track rental. It was a bit of a brash claim to begin with, but to not have the means to even partially attempt their quest...that's just a bit sad. Hopefully their poor attempts at advertising won't bite them too hard....
