Did the GT-R SpecV do a 7:20 Nurburgring time?

My Japanese is not what it used to be, but the folks on NAGTROC are speculating what this slide might mean.I talked with the US Product manager for GT-R last month during the LA Autoshow and he said that the tires alone are going to shave significant time as Dunlop has a new compound available that is good for as much as “4 seconds on a course the size of the Nurburgring”. We’ll have to see what they come back with in April, let the video be the proof.

Endless redefines Vented Disc

Hanging out at the GT-R Center and saw this very cool (no pun intended) venting system on the new Rotors from Endless.  While impressive in concept, I have to wonder how durable this is with all the heating and cooling cycles a disc brake goes through.  I have to imagine though, that this both saves weight and cools more effectively.  My Question is, if you’re going to spend this much for a Rotor Upgrade, now wouldn’t it make more sens to just upgrade to V-Spec Ceramic discs?

R35 GT-R vs Ducati 1098, “Goodbye Mr. Motorbike”

So I own both, a GT-R and a sportbike, so I can vouch for what they are identifying as the differences. Autocar does a phenomenal job of explaining how the two vehicles attack the track differently, though I have to admit the outcome was a bit of a surprise for me.

GT-R vs. Viper and a Lesson in drag racing

First, congrats to Brooks for running a great time without Launch control. 11.6@118 is impressive. Second, this video illustrates why the GT-R is going to loose a roll-on race against most 11 second cars. The GT-R’s weight slows down the ET (118), so the Viper is catching up toward the end (122). This is not unlike how the GT-R does against the Z06 as well. In the 8th, my money in on the GT-R, at the Qtr it’s a driver’s race, take it further, and the Viper is going to win.

Photos from the Nissan 370Z event.

UPDATED: Added video from Alexis.

First, HUGE THANK YOU TO  EDMUNDS! Very cool to put on this event and let Nissan owners get the first sneak peak at this car.  Very classy.  Second, I’m sorry these photos are so blurry, I had the exact wrong settings on my little point and shoot.  Third, I have to say stills do not do this little car justice.  The 370Z has all sorts of great angles and curves that create a lot of drama in the design.  Anyhow, here is the slideshow, stills and insider info on the GT-R after the jump
