They say the ride quality is improved, but it is still stiff. You can expect that from a car that will pull 1.04, and Nurburgring lap times in the teens.
It didn't take a day at the track to feel the difference in ride quality -- the improvement was evident five minutes into my drive. "Still sounds like a dump truck, but a quieter, softer dump truck compared to the 2013 model," noted associate photography editor Michael Shaffer.
No one has mentioned any real improvement on the brakes, other than the brake ducting. Still Motor Trend reports that the Track Edition stopped 11 feet shorter than the Black Edition. Probably just a car to car, track surface to track surface, difference.
he biggest improvement in the GT-R's performance was its stopping distance, with the red rocket coming to a screeching halt from 60 mph in just 94 feet -- 11 feet sooner than the Black Edition.
