Maybe T-Bone can comment on the lack of traction from the M6, as having one he should be the best person to ask.

Stupid race. The M6 had the worst launch possible. He was catching up in the end though, meaning his trap speed was higher.

Similar things have been leveled at the M5Board.com events where the BMW's seem to do better than expected but most here don't regard it as rigged. You either except all videos as the real deal or you have your doubts about all of them.

I myself fall into the latter group.

Eh, I accept some and doubt others. The M5board vids are pretty darn legit looking to me.

Numbers speak....go to dragtimes if you want real M6 times.

That being said, it is easy to goof up a SMG launch, you need to guess how much throttle and how quickly you need to apply to get a good launch.

It is the difference between low 12s and low 13s.

That being said, Japanese & Impartiality don't go together in Japanese car reviews.

The M6 lost to the NSX due to bad launch(Duh). I have seen the whole episode of this series named 'best motoring' and at the beginning of this episode, the deal between the driver's was that you don't need get to practice launching each car. They do all their races in 1st attempt.

I am sure with a better launch a M6 would obviously slay a NSX-R. The driver can also use launch control to get better results

umm I would never say the guy on the right is the better driver, the guy driving the M6 is the "drift king". He just had a bad launch and they should of raced again.

Considering stock nsx-r's *can* run in the 12's due to their insane lightweight and aerodynamics....Id say thats pretty impressive, from a car with less than 300 hp...(did I mention its pretty much a 15 year old design...changing headlights doesnt count)

I think you are believing to much of Honda's PR if you reckon the NSX-R had only 286hp, think closer to 350hp would be more like the thing.

Even this amount makes impressive reading for what the Honda is capable of.
