Mines R34 at Streets of Willow Springs

Mine's Skyline GT-R R34 Willow Springs Time Attack 1:21 is fast, however it really didn't look that quick. There were a few places he braked, where he should have been flat.

Some comparisions

1. Nissan GT-R 1:25.68 ´08 479 / 1740 Edmunds
2. Audi R8 1:26.92 ´06 420 / 1560 Edmunds
3. Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X MR 1:29.02 ´08 291 / 1640 Edmunds
4. Porsche 997 Carrera 1:29.25 ´04 325 / 1395 Edmunds
5. Lotus 111 SC 1:29.49 ´08 217 / 913 Edmunds
6. Subaru Impreza WRX STI (2.5l) 1:30.05 ´07 300 / 1527 Edmunds

love the bad eggs comment about vipers on hoosiers being faster than this "ricebox". When I looked a willow springs lap times in google this message from 1999 popped up:

PROFESSIONAL: Erik Messley drove Ron Levi's GT-3 Viper to a new Viper lap record of 1:23.62 for an average speed of 107.63 MPH over the 9 turn 2.5 mile circuit.


SHOWROOM STOCK: Coupes prevailed over the roadsters again. Plain and simple, Les Quam is going to be very difficult to beat this season. He turned a marvelous 1:34.98 in a stock coupe.

Did Willow springs drop 20% of its tarmac in the last 6 years?

Are those times "Streets" or Big Track at Willow. A 1:23 at big track is fast.

1:21 is fast. Igor did a 1:24~1.25 something in the World Challenge/Super Taikyu car the first time we took it out.
