Of course his car is tuned.... a stock M3 has no chance against a GTR. I think what the OP is saying is that he was surprised the 4.6 stroker was faster, to be honest I am surprised too!

Thank you

I have driven stock & modified GT-Rs at regular speeds but never at high speeds so I was expecting to lose for sure.

Well I guess the point is: people with little or no GTR experience are surprised and people that own first gen R35s aren't. A stock M6 will hang(and probably even gain a little) with an 09 GTR above 100.
