That has surprised me, actually. I know that virtually nobody leaves a GTR stock but going on what you said, it would suggest that a stock GTR would actually be slower in a straight line than my own car (with ~200 at the wheels, at least 200 kg less weight than an R33 and lower aerodynamic drag). I never regarded my car in the Skyline league! Admittedly, that's not counting for traction (I often can't use full power until approx 50mph in the dry), handling (mine is crap) and as soon as a GTR is modded even slightly it's a very different beast.I think you'll find that power at the wheels isn't much above 200 with a stock car (I certainly don't think it'll be as much as 250bhp).
True, that would be quite a significant factor. When I was at Power Engineering, there was an Evo 5 there that they measured at 316 bhp but only 220 at the wheels - 60bhp more than mine at the flywheel but only 20 more at the wheels, the rest being soaked up in his 4 wheel drive system. At least it meant that he could get all of it onto the tarmac, I guess.But its worth remember a RR @ the wheels figure isn't that accurate for a skyline as on the road most of the time on the road the GTR runs as 2wd, so less transmission losses.
I guess that skyline outside is a figment of my imagination thenBadMuthaR34 said:maybe polarbear is just wrong.hehe:smokin:
I'd love to try one, in fact I think spending that much money on a car would be a bit silly without having driven one first.Kingsley, I think its worth trying a skyline - Dyno figures are fairly meaningless most 4wd cars loose ~100bhp between fly and wheels.
