I think that pretty accurate because the skyline and the scooby where no where near stock.

Only in Japan can a NSXR beat every premier ($400K+) sports car in the world.....

Only in Japan can a Z06 and a Lambo get smoked by a Subaru and a Skyline....

If I lived in bizarro-world Japan, I'd just buy a Honda Civic.....must be something in the air, I hear they run low 10's out there bone stock.

Thats the Z-Tune skyline...Tuned by Nismo and only 20 built. (Basically a used R34 takin from a lot and tuned with Nismo parts)/



And the Subaru is the limited edition STI S204 and only 600 were made.



And please dont use the excuse the drivers are crap...There japanese race car drivers. Z06 was holding up the lambo and skyline :secret: You could hear the guy in the skyline honk his horn a couple times :gr_jest:

Time attack (Solo lap) results are,

Lambo - 1:04.76
Skyline - 1:05.10
Z06 - 1:06.02
S204 - 1:07.00

Lambo driver seemed to be good, the skyline better in the corners than the z06 and the subaru was lucky to start first. the z06 had it better in the straighaways

I don't think the Subura was lucky to start first, I think they did that intentionally. The cars ran in order of decreasing lap time (solo) (from the slowest to the fastest car), which makes some measure of sense if you want any chance of some passing during the race.

I thought they ran them in order of their hp rating? Lowest first to highest last.

they use way faster cars to sit in the back and use as camera cars or something but if you watch the part after the race it looks like the guy in the z06 was complaing about it wanting to drift out

I agree. Laguna Seca be a perfect track for the show...

Good video, but it still doesn't make sense...

The best-engineered $60K all aluminum and carbon fiber/fiberglass 500bhp 3xx rear tired Vette getting held off by a lightly factory-modded econobox?

I'm not really buying into it. Looks like the STi driver was giving it hell, along with the Skyline driver, and the Vette and Lambo drivers were just cruising around. But that's just how I see it.

Yep, looked more into it, and I don't give that video much credit - MILD suspension/brake tweaks and only 320bhp does not equal Lamborghini / Z06 killer. Driver, on the other hand, maybe.

And I'm by no means a domestic nutswinger. I almost bought a WRX and LOVE how they drive. My old Honda Accord was the "nicest" car I've ever owned.

The Guy in the Subaru was going balls out...Its a very small and tight track so handling is A LOT more important than how much power you have. Every time down the straightaway they pulled right back up to the Subaru from about 10 cars back.

Some tracks do not suit some cars...And the Z06 was clearly not the fastest car out of that bunch. The Subaru was about 3 seconds off the Lambo which was fastest in a solo lap...Also the guy in the Z06 was doing a lot of defensive driving to keep the Skyline behind which kills your lap times while the Subaru was going balls out using ever inch of the track.

If the Lambo and Skyline had got by the Z06 they would have easily caught the Subaru within a lap. NOT saying the Z06 is slow but that track just does not suit the Z06 very well...

Watch this,

Evo has 400HP and is tuned but look at how much faster in the turns it is...The Evo and the Subaru are very much a like in the handling department. Lambo is faster...But that means nothing in the turns.

WRX STi S204
More power beefed up to320hp
Also better suspension which tames the understeer problem

Had a chance to see and ride in one in Hawaii

Understeer didn't look exactly "tamed" on the last corner...

Anyways, poster above has it right I reckon -- The STI was being thrashed, whereas the vette looked like it was being granny shifted (watch the in-car cam off the starting line...), missed apexes, not using the whole road, buttoning off when getting close.

However, compare this video review to the complete garbage you see on Speed (where nobody exceeds 55mph...)
