A'hem, "torque vectoring" is a technique or method of power transfer in the AWD system. The system that the GT-R uses is just more effective when coupled with its dual-clutch transmission. It doesn't multiply torque or alter output in any fashion other than routing power to the wheel(s) that have the most traction.

Same here but that isn't because I discredit the GT-R's abilities. I still respect it for what it is. Funny how so many people can tell you your opinion-based preferences are "wrong". Makes no sense to me.

i'm quite familiar with torque vectoring, and you seem to be somewhat rudely agreeing with me? the broad fact that it's awd is not why it's fast... it's due to the specifics of the awd system in that particular car. similar to the awd system in the x5/6m. compare this to another awd car like an audi s4 and you'll see a very different result. open front, center, and rear diffs move power in the least effective way possible, very much unlike the gtr, but still very much awd. in short... how does the gtr do it? torque vectoring.

you're just mad cause you like audis and their awd system sucks. you're not alone. i own a b5s4. its awd system sucks. enough directionless antagonizing. don't turn this into a useless forum.

0 to 100 is all about cheating (also called launch control & double clutch transmission)

The tricked out AWD system is how it does the 0-60. Launch control and AWD are nothing new. Routing power to the right wheel at the right time is where it's at.

S4 has torque vectoring as an option. The bad Audi AWD systems are the Haldex ones, Torsen is pretty good
