Nice video. Thanks for sharing. I wish there were more details on the drag, maybe switching drivers and having multiple runs, would have been nice... Not fair to the Porsche at all. Why wouldn't they put good tires on it?

Oh well for porsche complaning about the gtr's inabilities. The porsche couldn't win with the same professional driver, more horspower, more torques and a lighter car, Go nissan.

Check out the torque matchup of the Nismo Z and the S2000 CR. Both cars put up a 1.36.xx at willow springs.

Meanwhile the techart could only manage a 1.37. The tires must have been really beat up or the car was not properly setup.

That was stupid that the Porsche had crap tires. It would have been a great race if they both wore rubber.

This is not the same test. The R&T article had a Mines GTR vs this same Techart Porsche. Unlike this test the R&T test had two stocker on hand to see base line tests vs the laps between the two respective tuner cars. Also the R&T test ran the Streets of Willow which is the smaller track than the one run in this Video. The Streets of Willow is only 1.3 miles long so much smaller than Big Willow aka Big Willow which is 2.5 miles long.

Anyway heres a break down of the R&T test which will give you a better view of how dominant the GTR is over any current Porsche even modded. GTR is the Porsches Daddy period.

R&T Test at Streets of Willow[small track]

Techart GT Street [630hp/605tq/3400lbs]

Lap time - 1:29.06 [Bonestocker 911 TT on hand - 1:30.6]
0-60 - 3.2 secs [Bonestocker 911 TT - 3.3]
0-100 - 7.2 secs [Bonestocker 911 TT - 8.2]
1/4 mile - 11.4 @ 125.2mph [Bonestocker 911 TT - 11.6 @ 120.3]


Mines GTR [550hp/3600lbs]

Lap time - 1:25.79 [Bonestocker GTR on hand - 1:26.8]
0-60 - 3.0 [Bonestocker GTR - 3.1]
0-100 - 6.9 [Bonestocker GTR - 7.7]
1/4 mile - 11.1 @ 127.4 [Bonestocker GTR 11.4 @ 121.6]

Notice that even the stock GTR raped the Techart GT Street on the small track at Willow Springs Intl. Also notice that in the R&T test the Mines GTR is making 50hp less than the Cobb Tuning GTR in the Video posted in this thread and still absolutely raped the Techart in lap times and acceleration. Leads me to believe the Cobb tuning GTR is a 10sec car at over 130mph.

I still cant get over the stock GTR raping the Techart even though it gave up 150hp and 400lbs. the article didnt mention bad tires on the Techart like in this video and the R&T test was done before this one I believe so doesnt look good for Techart. That Porsche cant be making 630hp and 605tq at 3400lbs and only have a trap speed of 125mph. Techart needs to go back to the drawing board.
