The reason why I mention it is because I have not seen that 300 kph speedo anywhere else. Which makes me think they actually used the same car that Schoysman did.

I don't think anyone is running a...

At the very least we have visual confirmation of a different exhaust and oil cooler. I am a little doubtful that the Best Motoring R33 was actually stock. You can see from the video alone that it has...

Aki Itoh has taken some photos of the car that set the record. The muffler looks similar to stock but it's obvious from the photos it has a 3 inch exhaust or so. There's also extra oil coolers and a...

The 991 turbo has an AWD system significantly more advanced than what shipped in the 90s era GT-Rs, the rear wheel steering is also more advanced as well. It's about as fast as a 991 GT3, it's slower...

I really doubt the R34 was slower than the R33. Aero was comparable, the R33 didn't have the front/rear diffuser of the R34 which reduced drag. Maybe the tall final drive didn't help at 3.545 but the...

Have you considered renting an R35 for a week? I think that would be long enough to get a better idea for whether you really would like living with one.

Hard to say when such things happen. I would say though that incompetent tuners rarely know that they are, it's on the consumer to be able to identify these people and walk away before they do more...

Setting ignition timing properly before any fuel injection occurs is critical. I'm not much of a tuner but improper base timing makes it possible to have the spark occur when the intake valve is open...

The closer you push to the limit of what an engine can take the more catastrophic any issue becomes. Maybe there isn't enough cooling at the dyno and the map isn't pulling enough timing or boost at...

Is the M4 GTS really better than an R35? I've driven an F80 M3 standard (2015, pre-LCI) with DCT for quite some time and I was not very impressed. The exhaust is overwhelmingly loud, the car actually...

I think that's not in doubt. 3.8L vs 2.6-2.8L of displacement, most RBs don't have any form of VVT, most RBs have absolutely archaic fuel injectors, no tricks like direct injection to run more timing...

The R35 is faster and yes it is a better daily driver but I have a few issues with it:

1. The DCT of the R35 is an early 6 speed variant that is kind of fragile and not very refined even now. No...

It's a car. Original injectors, dry rotted 20 year old tires, and misfiring coilpacks detract from its core purpose.

The hype was somewhat justified back in 1995. The R33 GT-R was faster than 993 Turbo around the Nurburgring. There are a lot of questions in my mind still as to how this was done. I'm willing to bet...
