Gintani Stage 2 M3 (7.5PSI) VS. 2014 Nissan GTR w/ COBB TUNED W/ MIDPIPES

I Finally got a chance to race a GTR, I was curious from the day I put my S/C kit on how it would hold up against a GTR modded or not. The main dis- advantage I had was my car being 6MT, I Finally put that thought of how I would do to rest. This run was done from 60-70km/h in 2nd gear sorry for the crap quality my go-pro seems to die at the worst times. Enjoy!

Impressive run but the rolling start gave you the edge. From 0, the GTR most likely would have left you. It's 4 wheel drive system is pretty damm good.

Not to mention having trouble keeping traction in 1st and 2nd gear with a 6MT. I know I've been there many times!

Enjoyed the video!

I don't get roll racing AWD cars. There's a significant disadvantage to the AWD car and a RWD setup like the m3 is made for highway pulls upstairs. From a dig this would've been way diff. Your car still moves out though.

Quoted for truth. My 6MT with stock size PSS kills me (I'm superchaged, VF650) from a dig; first 3 gears trip traction control.

Good kill though OP, GTR is a beast when correctly modded

Definitely need some meatier tires on the rear to help get that power to the ground.

Surprised nobody's told you that was nice stick-work.

Be careful out there...

I do a lot of roll-racing with my 997.2 TTS. With my recent engine, suspension and tire mods, I'm now doing 0-60mph in 2.5 and 0-100mph in 5.9...so basically as fast as a Veyron from a dig. I know that I will beat pretty much anything from a standstill, but I still enjoy racing from a roll. Next airstrip event I'm bringing both my Porsche and M3. Should be fun.
