For example, even though on paper there is probably only a 20-30whp difference between the two, I think there is a massive difference in the performance of zim's current car (ess vt2-650 with dct and meth and 18lb bbs FI wheels) and his old car (vt2-625 6 speed with 26lb bbs LM wheels) - as where his current car is an absolute animal (I truley think he genuinely has the fastest stock bottom end M3 S65 hands down) and will beat these GTRs, I think his white M3 would have gotten beaten by them. I've seen some M3's that are just terribly slow for what they have - for example, the white From Russia With Love car made by ACM lost to my buddy danny's stock ctsv and it has a vt2-625 6speed with catless innotech (while I walked danny's car hard with a 625 kit and catless exhaust). All the stars have to align perfectly for our cars to be able to pull on a GTR with those mods

Now if you raced one of these cars, well.......i think theyd be well in your rearview mirror especially into triple digits
For the most part I agree, especially if they are on race gas or even better E85, I've found that they're not all created equal and E85 is just nuts in the GTR's, but here's an OLD vid of a VT575 91/meth vs a FBO GTR 91 octane.
