    I know it will, just like the 1le did. I think its awesome, but its not gen V acr awesome lol.
    Like I've said to exhaustion, in the real world you'll see anything beat anything but it means nothing without head 2 head testing.

    I'm not disagreeing with you... BUT, with 100 more hp than the ACR and a lot less drag, it'll roll with it pretty well.

    I get frustrated at the track on the long straights. My car is modded, and puts down about 645rwhp, at 3400# (with me in it) and I get pulled on the straights by slower cars.

    Well the car handle itself well on that course. Does it beat this time, or beat that time, or does it do this or can it do that..........who knows ????? But the point to take away from the video is that the GT500 WILL be a force to be reckon with. As it been said here, it's going to hurt some feelings. Of crse the same will apply but in reverse...even when you see the car doing amazing times we will here from few..."Oh ! it's not same day same time !" "Oh the brakes help it get a good time !" "Oh ! it has super sticky glue to the track p40000's ! If car (X) had those it would be better to !"and so on...

    I'm just looking to see how well it will actually do and hope to see one on the track in person soon.

    Go back and read what he said. Hardly a "smack." I told you before. It happened. The particulars, which weren't shared, will hopefully be available once this thing gets off the ground.

    The car somehow punches way above its weight. And I get that you are in strong disbelief - I struggle with it as well. But until we have full blown, documented testing, we're stuck with visual anecdotes such as the video at hand.

    You think you are frustrated in the straights... I have 120hp... But its fun getting freight trained down the straight only to make all that ground back up in the braking zone nullifying that excess of horsepower
    Doesnt matter, its not faster regardless of what happened. Ive posted a faster lap than a damn Agera RS in my shit box. Its irrelevant and not a data point that can be made.

    I can only imagine haha There are a few spec Miatas that run very close times to mine...maybe 5 seconds off or so on a 2.6 mile course. They have bigger balls than I have at several points.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the MY20 GT500 matched an ACR at several tracks.

    Lol, ok. Again, nobody is saying it is the faster car. It's a pig with the heart of a freight train, I readily admit. Looking forward to data as much as you are.

    The point is this video shows the car performing pretty damn well, you can not deny that and nobody here is saying this car beats all lol, but like I have been saying and few others it will surprise many regardless of that weight. The new tires and them big ass brakes are a huge reason I believe it just did what it did in that video.

    If you read Steve's article at Hot Rod you see mention that the test cars were consuming tires at the rate of four per hour. I hope that with a track optimized alignment, read: more negative camber, that one can reduce the propensity for this thing to devour some fairly expensive shoes so quickly. And be even faster.

    Nick, which version would this be?

    I read that.. Kinda wondering if he means they're going through their entire life, OR if lap times start falling enough to make them want to change them out.

    I know guys who won't run their tires past 80%, because they don't want to lose that .5-1 second.

    Correct, I cant deny that its fast and mega impressive given the weight. But I can try and point out that just because you "see" it beat an ACR doesnt mean its actually faster than an acr.
    I know a guy who was spending 5k/month on tires with his Z1le... Only because they had to be fresh fresh every damn day... Crazy... Tis why I run a SM. My tires/brakes last forever. Im at lap 652 this year and on my 2nd set and same brake pads.

    A buddy I have out in California/Arizona area, races a 2013 Viper that is more or less a Gen V Competition Coupe, and he runs 6-10 laps a weekend, and goes through at least 1 if not 2 sets of tires haha

    He has 13-14 TTU lap records out there. Super cool dude, hell of a driver. He just got it back from getting the 9.0L Extreme Package done to it. It put down 803/695 and weighs 2900# haha

    I can show you a video of a 600hp V12 vantage cup car on hoosiers not being able to get away from my 120 spec miata, does that mean my car is faster? Must be nice living in Lala land.

    McCann. It sold on BAT not too long ago.

    I wanted that car something fierce, but couldn't swing it with my divorce finishing up. Someone on this form knows who bought it though.

    Viper Exchange has the almighty GTS-R Viper for sale right now.. But again, well out of an acceptable price range in my book haha
