At the track I have cut better 60ft's then GTR's. Most them I see are 1.6's while I am 1.5's. So I am happy. LOL
Yeah, the AWD really helps on asphalt. I love the GT-R, but it feels like it's missing something - like a soul maybe. It's fast, but I have a lot more fun in my Pony.

1.5's are really good. Any recommendations on learning how to launch properly? I originally had 3.31's and it was a lot easier - I had to shift once to hit 60! The 3.73's pull so hard though. I could never go back.

TRACTION! Combined with suspension. WOrk way up in RPMS till your tires start to spin instead of hooking. All have to do is start say 2000rpms and drop the clutch.
