biggrin XR6T vs R33 GT/R

Just want to say thankyou to the nice person who tried to race me on Parramatta road tonight, in his Nissan Skyline GTR R33 Turbo. It was an absolute pleasure, not only to KICK YOUR ASS!, but to beat you NUMEROUS times from the start at two sets of traffic lights. Even though my car is heavier.. Sorry Mate...The Turbo wins hands down! Sorry i just had to beat you.. by the way nice size exhaust.. too bad it didnt do much.. Still beat you in my STOCK XR6 Turbo

I would have to say that he probably was. XR6T's are quick, but i rekon you would have a hard time beating an R33 GTR.

Real gtrs are pretty hard to spot with the untrained eye.

Dead give away usually is the rear guards being so pumped out...

But i mean its not all about the power, GT-R has 4wd. Thats a big advantage when getting the power down.

Given that the R32, R33 and R34 GT-Rs run 12-13 second 1/4 miles in stock trim I would find this highly doubtful. Probably just a GTS-t. Maybe not even that...

GTRs run low 13s stock.. (R32 is actually the quickest) but if you arent game to do the Big Rev and Dump The Clutch(tm) to take advantage of the AWD then they lose a lot of time.

Probably not a GTR ... but still ...

oh yeah .. street racing is bad

Dreamin! GTR would walk all over a stock XR6T.

Where as a GTS-T would be a good contest.

I have agree with the majority here, beating a GTR is a biig ask for an XR6-T especially in stock run in form.

GTS-T though it's more than a match. Remember one thing the GTR makes waaay more than the politically correct 206kw is says on the specs. R33 GTS-T makes 187kw.
