Once I read the "more mature" part I ignored almost everything else. The Turbo and GT2 forums consists of many butthurt fanboys (many of whom don't even track their car, and I'm not talking about the drag strip).

I remember an admin stating something along the lines of, "if a car is faster than yours, refer to subjective qualities to proclaim victory."

I tend to forget that with the crazy electronics in race cars, they're not proper sports cars either, just because.

I have a theory that 95% of people who hate the GTR have never driven one.

Compared to other competitors, the GT-R is:

A) Under-powered
B) Over-weight
C) Under-equipped in tire width (stock size)
D) Under-priced

The only thing it's got going for it is the tricky AWD and slippery 0.26 Cd.

Sorry, how is that not a win? Haters will hate

But most of all... The electronic aids make it easier to drive... A noobie can hop into it and do okay.
