Pretty damn impressive, this is the magic of AWD.

That video was a joke, literally... I want a REAL drag race between the two.

The GT-R is the best bang-for-the-buck sports car around now, even better than a Vette.

If this was a straight away race imagine what the GT-R will do to the reptile on curvy roads. Snake fillets anyone?

I agree. That video doesn't convince me.

Your really going to take that video as testament to each of the car's capability? Neither of them even sounded close to WOT and where are the times for each? The way that thing was filmed I could have had an '87 Grand Marquis cross the finish line before a top fuel dragster and you would still believe it!

Please, point out what I missed on the video because obviously you didn't. So you're saying Motortrend is bias against the snake?

Am I saying that? Well obviously you are capable of reading so feel free to quote where you think I said that.

What you conveniently missed was the lack of ANY track time numbers. You also failed to notice that each car sounded like they were being accelerated by an 80 year old grandma on a freeway entrance ramp.

I don't understand how you can be convinced by that video... the footage was all cut up, they did one pass and I didn't see any numbers.
