    Good job nissan the entire auto world knows you tried to lie to them. We pretty much firgured it out when the Porsche pro drivers couldnt get within 14 seconds of the nissan drivers lap times when both drove different stock GTRs around the ring.

    They better do alot of suspension work, even the v8 camaro is 45 seconds behind the GTR(real time not nissans time) and the GTR only has 60more crank hp.

    I hear the V6's actually handle a little better than the V8. That's if my memory serves me right.

    Im sure the v6 is slower around the ring, the ss has brembos and the ring is BIG with long turns for the most part im sure the power of the SS would keep it up front in the ring.

    the nordschleife is constantly break-corner-accellarate with next to no straights and always uphill - downhill. most of the course is actually pretty slow, you need handling even more than power. if the v6 is handling better, it's the right choice. together with the beefed up brakes and - as zinergy said - lots of suspension work.
