Boom!

 

 

LOL at 6:53 - frustration with top end limit kicks in.

That's a great time, but man he has to work that steering wheel hard to get it to go where he wants. Not my kind of car. I had lunch with 2 guys at Mosport who both have and ACR Extreme, one from Ontario and one from California, and both said it's terrible to drive on the street, and both bought trailers and pick-up trucks to move it from home to track. Front tire wear is a total killer, 1-2 days max, usually can't finish a full day or the full second day because tires are wearing out. So a super fast track queen, but not far off a race car really.

Same experience for owners local to me.

 

BUT, I can fairly easily go through a set of front tires (Pirelli slicks) in a day (@ -3.5* camber) on my CBA.

Maybe we in the GTR community need to fund an Private built GTR that makes big power , far less weight and has massive downforce to run the ring.

Anthony was at the ‘Ring with that beast last month and did a bunch of laps. Unfortunately it wasn’t during a private rental or trackday, so they had to contend with traffic. Ffwd to 13 mins to see some in car footage. The closing speeds against normal sports cars are almost cartoonish. He plans to go back next year during a private rental and set a proper time.



Here’s an article with some cool pictures.
