Forum Wars : Nissan GT-R vs Porsche Turbo S

The Forum Wars in its second season of taking two cars from opposing internet forums, and running them against each other in a put up or shut up contest.  Nissan has benchmarked the GT-R vs the Porsche Turbo since its inception. The GT-R development team with a Porsche along, has been seen at tracks around the globe. The Porsche guys are mostly in disbelief that a $90k, 3800 lb Nissan, can beat their $140k, 3500 lb Krautwagon. In this forth episode, the GT-R goes against the Turbo S.  On paper the Porsche looks like it should be quicker, is it?  Drag race, autocross, and slalom. Head over to the Forumwars website for all the episodes.

  • Forum: is the only series with enough huevos to engage two competitors from two rival forums in a full throttle, tire smoking track smackdown. This season the forums nominated their reps and they met on the track at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX. One person walks away victorious and the other a loser. It's not just the competitor's pride on the line; each represents hoards of enthusiasts loyal to their marque. Man vs. man, car vs. car, and forum vs. forum.
