Autocar: GT3 vs GT-R vs M3

Wow GTR is so on top of its game. I'm totally want one, especially after seeing it in person.

Good watch for sure, I appreciate you posting the video.

But lets not forget he mentioned its 2 degrees outside and those michelin's on the porsche are useless in that temprature.

The GT-R is awsome, but I'd still take the GT3 over a Skyline.

yeah GT3 Is awesome machine! I agree that at those tempretures they are usless, it is also been said that those tyres need at least 5 lasps to warm up too. But then again those are R compound, now what if they throw same tyres on GT-R i wanna see that.

Those tires the use on the skyline are comparable to the porsche tires just as sticky. the skyline just has better traction.

The impact it would have on your laptimes will change dramatically on an awd car vs a 2wd car. Hence the Porsche being 2wd and wearing tires like that puts it in a way more disadvantage then the GTR

I think the transmission (DSG) and launch controll says it all.
