    Re: Gallarod SL does 7:46 on Nring

    You are right. To drive a car on the ring like a z06 or a TT with the times of a race driver will be amazingly difficult.
    I think very few can do that. Me i can't.

    Thanks.

    for some reason, the more manufacturers push their Nring times, the less relevant I find the ring to be to daily driving, and the more I feel the cars may be compromised for the end user in order to meet those figures.



    The Nordschleife is similar to a fast one-way mountain road with mixed surfaces and bumps. The Ring times are a relevant measure of real world prowess.



    yes, but two issues.

    1. the ring times are only valid if the car provided to the mag is COMPLETELY stock.


    2. who is gonna go around and boast about ring times? 7:43 for the Z06? Id like to meet a Z06 owner that can actually pull that off. most owners (if any) wont be getting sub 8 minutes.



    1. The benchmark Sport Auto times are for stock cars (manufacturer claims are dubious).

    2. The driving skill of owners is irrelevant in car comparisons.



    1.its obvious that when manufacteres give cars for testing, they are not always stock. look to Ferrari and the 599, 0-200 in low 10s my ass. thats Enzo territory and having 0.05 second quicker shifts isnt gonna made up for torque, power, weight and weight distribution that the Enzo has going for it.

    2. comparing ring times is great and all for car fans like me, but the reality is that if you go around talking about how your car can do such and such and the only reason it wont be going it is because you are the weak link, it just absurd, imo. hence cars like the Gallardo are great becuase not everyone is schumi and the performance is safer and more accessible.
