Yeah it's DCT but with the drivetrain advantage and weight to power on
The 997 , the 997 should be thrusting by the Gtr in 3-4th gear
I hear you J, I think the outcome was exaggerated, the owner is a friend, but he at times is not the greatest shifter in the world, lol. We've seen the difference with a very good driver behind the wheel, but the final outcome would have been the same, that GT-R is just faster up to 160.

FWIW, I've already posted in a vid above how a FBO E85 GTR, can run with a SC'd C6 Z06. Here's Sohrabby's E85 GTR against a 680+WHP Cam/FBO Supercharged C6 Vette -

Here's that same 680+WHP Vette against an Alpha 9 at our very first SBS racing event -
