Not sure why that matters, but ok. The track doesn't care.GTRPower wrote:That's as valid as a Camaro vs Corvette comparo. It may be just as quick with some mods but it is no Corvette.
Sure. There's always "street-cred" and the "chick magnet" effect - Neither of which carry any weight with me. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I'm a big fan of seeing a home-built, reliable, uncommon chassis that's well-engineered enough to spank so-called "supercars". Again, eye of the beholder.GTRPower wrote:Outperforming a GT-R does not make it better. A GT-R can outperform a Ferrari 360 but that doesn't make it better either. Performance is just one measure of a car.
Let's not mistake my presentation of an alternate viewpoint as "Godzilla-bashing." I've been doing this long enough to know better - as have you.
Already has. Cars like yours and Sean's and Vandrel's and Rex's are the exception, not the norm. They're exceptionally nice, and the price reflects that.GTRPower wrote:Will that happen here? Maybe,
You made my point perfectly - Most (statistically-speaking) of the grey-market cars coming into the US are tired and worn - whether through Canada or ports in FL - requiring expensive parts sourced from Japan to be made "right". No disagreement there.
I don't share your dismissive attitude, nor your characterization of these enthusiasts as "children". We all started somewhere. I'm just glad my peers were supportive of my early endeavors.GTRPower wrote:I personally hope the F&F craze is passé and the children buy some used BRZ/FT86 or Scion things.
Speaking of the BRZ/FR-S, those cars are capable performers, and for the $50K+ price of admission to the R34 game, someone could build a Toyobaru twin that just might surprise an unsuspecting GTR owner.
