im aware of all these factors, and i've been to a track myself, so i know its not ONLY about POWER, and i'm not talking about the lambo, but rather the porsche, you see, a porsche has EVERYTHING better than an NSX, look, its LIGHTER, MORE POWER, it also has an AWD (thats iff its a turbo model, or like the 4s), and it has more power, not only that, but porsches are pretty much BREAD on a race track, thats what their made for!!!!
so NOW, can someone PLEASE give me a GOOD answer to why the PORSCHE LOST?!??!?!?!?!


Turbo Porsches are 3670lbs.
Granted it is a tuner version in the video, if the Gemballa boys did shave some weight off it couldn't have been very drastic short of ripping out the awd system which should net you around 200lbs.
areount 50lbs for the ac system, 40 pounds for the sound absorbant, and give or take 100lbs for the stock seats and various carbon goodies bolted to the car. that still makes the Turbo prosche 3280lbs vs the NSX-R's ridiculous 2032lbs!!!!!!

Gemballas retain all of the orginal options, plus I believe they get the roll cage as well. More or less like the Ruf porsches.

The NSX-R
comes with no ac or radio. All of the go -fast-bits have been lightned. Most of the car is aluminum. The seats are carbon/kevlar recaros, the carpet is really thin with light sound absorbtion materials. The hood, spoiler, rear diffuser/venturi and other cosmetic bits are carbon fiber!!!!! (this is a street car?)
The engineers at honda went all out to make the NSX-R competitive with other exotics.

kay, so who would believe THIS statement,
an MR2 would beat a E46 M3!!!
(the older MR2's with turbos!!)!!!

i disagree, even though its lighter, the M3 has better handling, and a lot more power!!!!

i've think i seen that too, but it was a DRIFT competition, and those RWD AE86's are AMAZING for drifting, and if the dude in the NSX really is the DRIFT KING, doesn't make a BIG difference!!!

it will be close, since i have tuned suspension, even though you have more power, it doesn't matter, i'll pull outta the turns quicker, but you'll get em on the straight!!

(hmmmmm, why does this convo sound familiar, a weaker, LESS EXPENSIVE sprots car being able to take a more powerful exotic?!?!?! deja vu!!!)!!!
