To whoever said "built to do their own thing".... They were built to do the same thing.

GTR was build to be driven by anyone and be good,drive all year round (must be fun in winter!), 4 seater ( kinda) automatic (DSG i know)


Zr1 RWD, Manual, 2 seater, mostly enjoyable in sunny dry road driving.


I mean they were made for car heads, but with different approach. So they are different.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the whole GT-R breaking trannies fiasco...

Quote:
A member of the North American GT-R Owner's Club forums started a thread recently in which he tells about dropping off his Nissan GT-R at the dealership when he began hearing loud noises coming from the rear of the car. The dealership told him that his transmission was toast as a direct result of him turning off the car's VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) too much, which you have to do in order to use the Launch Control function. The cost to repair the tranny is $20,000 and Nissan won't cover it under warranty since the GT-R owner's manual states that damage to the transmission is not covered if it is proven to be the result of using Launch Control with the VDC turned off. In fact, the manual states that the only reason you should turn off VDC is for when you're rocking the vehicle because it's stuck in mud or snow. That's kind of like Nissan saying you should never use the Launch Control function despite the fact it's there.

It was only few of them, due to over launching, but now they fixed that and its even better and faster.

Audi has some pretty good All Wheel Drive. They won alot of races with that shit because no one else could grip when it mattered.. At launch and around corners/turns. Its nothing new, All wheel drive has always been superior to 2 wheel drive. It always will be if its done properly.

That video shows me two things. That is a Z06, and the Modena catches up but and has to let off a few times.

GTR+style+autotragic = major fail

GTR R32 = Major win.
GTR R33/R34 = a close second

You should stop driving fake ferrari's and vipers

The viper has enough torque to scare anyone when giving it and ferrari .. c'mon .. what were you driving? a 308 or mondial?

There's nothing tragic about the auto in this car. Unless you eat the forbidden apple and break it trying to uberlaunch.

C'mon Adam, we all know that driving any form of "Automatic" immediately equates to your genetalia changing to a vag.

Don't try and fight for auto's just cause your daily is an Auto.

How can you call one of the best dual clutch gearbox an auto?

I prefer manuals my self too but have to admit these new generation Dual Clutch gearboxes are pretty damn good to argue!
And Blades that pic is of a Gts not a GTR.
Here is a normal R33 GTR just lowered and with some decent rims and even an OEM R33.
i think they look pretty sweet! Remember in real life they look much better and more impressive (all variations)
