    Yep, as it should, although the NASCAR didnt get away real well.

    NASCAR, which would be awful off the line smashes the others though.

    I driven a de tuned Nascar on one of those ride days.
    Typically crap off the line and with only a H box but once on the sweet spot they honk and as said a de tuned version.
    Fecking go kart around those banks, sling shot corner exits bloody loved it.
    Gonna have to get this arranged again but my eye is on the Indy experience one.
    Sorry back on track, a nephew picked up the GTR just recently - awaiting for a test drive.
    Can't check the link out for now but will once back.
    They sure are the pedigree Jap Sumari - I do admire them but the priceeeeeeeeeeee.
    YNWA ! off to CL 2018.

    I've been in a gtr as a passenger and wow, what a car.
    But you need deep pockets to own one long term, purchase price is just the beginning of your bank accounts being emptied.
    I guess that's no different to any of the other 'supercars' really.

    Owning a performance Falcon can get expensive once you start replacing brakes and tyres.

    The faster you go the more expensive maintenance is.

    Fixed.

    Also, a bog standard ZX-14 would hose all those posers

    haha - very true RW, its all relative no matter.
    The falcon comparo only tax's me mentally, like FFS the QC.
    I know ownership in other things wouldn't be as much as a head feck but the wallet being reemed.
