Should have been more specific. Not knocking track events- and it's probably more of a Daytona thing. Tighter tracks are more exciting for track event videos. And maybe for me it's always been a slow car (slow miata or IS300) vs. fast car thing (M3, Porsche, Vette or whatever). I'm used to hounding the cars in front through the turns (and even braking zones) to get a good jump coming onto the straights. There was some of that going on as he exited the infield and went to the oval. But I suppose in the big $ cars, what's the point in rushing to pass when you've got the oval.

And to Hustler's point, when there's a bunch that are used to running with each other, the scenery changes. Drivers trust each other, or rather know who to trust when- same as wheel to wheel.

To me, the GTR makes hero drivers out of peeps who ordinarily cannot drive. Mash the throttle through the turns, and the car will decide how much throttle to add based on steering angle, wheel spin ect. I am sure you can turn it off, but why would you? Hustler and those that track a Miata or any other older car, where the traction control is your right foot, get more respect from me, in a non-gay way.

+1 for knowing who to trust when dealing with these gays sometimes.

That's called passion! Maybe if Nole players had it then they wouldn't have had a losing season.

FSU got OWNED by USF, and USF totally sucks!

I see what you're saying but why not make the most of technology sometimes? When you're dropping that kind of change you're not going to find a grassroots feel comparable to the Miata so why not go for whatever works best?

Welcome to "vintage racing." I fought it for a long time and after talking to a few proper vintage racers, I realized that I arrived a while ago.

gtr's are awesome machines, but you don't get the reward you do with a good handling rwd car, like a miata or bmw, etc....... same thing with evo's and sti's, they're fast but you don't feel satisfied when you exit the track. the feeling you get when your on the limits with just a little slip angle at or near triple digit speeds.........it's the best.
