Does it really matter " who has the most HP " , lets grow up guys " who has the most fun to drive" .


Im glad all the GTR's owners are going their own route some like HP some like handling.

The real test would be the owners of these cars to use the car to the limit after the mods are done and then push the performance and personal envelope further.

This is not about Skyline. This is about GT-R, R35

plus there is a big diff between wheel rated horse power and crank. you're talking crank i think.
are you sure your gonna let that happen?? As far as I know you,you would practically get into a crazy street race with him and you 2 would create music with your exhaust notes and the other poor drivers like me, would just see your tail lights getting smaller and smaller from our windscreens.

no no, i have to wait for a year till my 1000hp/850rwhp arrives and its definitely not going to be as tame as a GT-R 35 with paddle shifts and launch control along with 4 wheel drive. My recipe is pretty opposite, manual, rear wheel drive and no traction control and driving assists.

Its nice to hear about 1000rwhp /awhp cars, but its a complete waste of time and money. a P800ish is probably the most perfect pkg, fast enough to ruin most anything and could be slowed to take it on the road course where the car is meant to be.

In india we barely have high HP cars, so everyone has their panties up in a bunch, ppl have absolutely no clue how hard or rather impossible it is to hook up the tires for these kinds of power levels. You need far better road surfaces than any indian roads come with.

Dont get me wrong, I am a proponent of having high HP cars, but there is a limit to usable power. I live in the US and have seen plenty of high HP cars, after all this is literally the birth place and since I am actively involved in this area myself, I can tell you how useless anything over 700-800 really is. The R35 can handle more cuz of the AWD setup, a RWD car is going to be smoking tires while my 600hp AWD car would smoke it upto 200-250kph.

Inside man, its nice to see a RWD build but how many high HP cars have you ever tried to hook?

Give it a shot. We will be more than glad to hear your take.
PS: Did you drive it after the latest mods?

i didnt drive it but the ride was sufficient to convince me.

1st - the ride was according to my liking i.e it was comortable according to supercar standards ( in the comfort setting with 20'' rims) and was very very impressive in sport mode ( R mode) .

2. Performance is mind blowing. Its way faster than a M3 and im expecting this car to be something near a lp560 .

Overall something i really want to get .

Well.. it will have to first beat a certain deep-pearlescent-purple R34 GT-R with a little 1000hp sticker on the boot and more than just one massive turbo sticking out of the hood!

M3 is not in the same league as the GT-R anyways, regardless of the mods and I am not talking about prestige here.

As for the LP560, it will be toast too, I can pass by a 560 no problem and I dont have the turbo upgrades yet

@ 1Day i wasn't talking about the M3 being 1000 bhp. I just said you can talk about it there.
plus, i prefer manual cars so in my opinion its not superior, its about personal opinion.
so if your still willing to discuss it there then you can.

@ 1day - cause of this post - M3 is not in the same league as the GT-R anyways, regardless of the mods and I am not talking about prestige here.

i think you need to do research of how a naturally aspirated v8 of only 4ltrs can rev that high... i think the gtr is a great car, but its personal opinion, i dont go around dissing other cars do i?
