OK numbers do mean something. Its obvious. You can get some information from them, sure you can. But what? How fast the car goes in a straight line? If thats what cars are about why do they have steering wheels? OK numbers are the easiest things to post but if we wanted to compare cars just like that things would get pretty boring... if you have any additional information that you know of the car then you should say it.

I'm sure the car's you've ridden in performed somewere around were the numbers said they would.
no no no... what was pleasing about these cars' performance wasnt straight line speed, but entertaining handling, great balance, good steering etc etc... numbers had nothing to do with it... unless you're going to take each car around a specific track and put its time with its acceleration and top speed figures... i guess the Old Nurburgring is the closest we have to that, but lap times are hardly going to be used to advertise a car.

i hope you see what im trying to get at

cheers,

I completely understand what your getting at, all the numbers I could find were just accel and 1/4 mile accept for the boxter It would have been better if I could have found some skidpad and slolom results, but I'm bad at finding these sorts of things

If it were a choice of some one giving me one of um... Ferrari please

But if I'm buying it, or if I'm betting on which would win in a track race, GTR all the way.

Like I said before it all boils down to personal preference, and I'm just a Skyline lover.

How about being able to sidestep the clutch at redline, and your rear wheels only spinning two revolutions before torque is split to the front and traction grabs?

Man this was a long post. I must say alothough I would love to drive a Ferrari (it a friggin Ferrari) I would rather own a Skyline. Why? Cause in the end I still want to be able to dirve my car inconspicuously. If you look at the R33 it doesn't look like anything special. That is, it doesn't look like a car worth stealing, scratching etc etc to all the wrong people. To all the right people (those that know what it is) it is revered and would never be mistreated (same for the 360, hopefully). With a Ferrari you don't get that. Park it in the wrong place and boom its gone. Anger the wrong girl and boom you need a new paint job (I assume it would cost more to paint a Ferrari than a Sky). If the car get love tapped (ie hit) it will cost you an arm and a leg to get it fixed (then you insurance goes up as it it wasan't high enough already).


Like I said in the beginning I would give my right arm to drive a Ferrari 360 but would rather own a Skyline (I want 1 R32's 3 R33's and 2 R34's).


IMHO

But look at it this way. If you are rich enough to own ANY Ferrari, getting a dent out, painting a quarter panel, and insurance are a drop in the bucket. However, theft is all together another story.

Quite true, quite true. I've thought of that on a few occasions before.

I donno, I think this thread has become a dead horse that we are kicking the shit out of IMHO
