    Interesting point, in earlier generations of the Franchise, swerving while stopping would actually aid in braking performance.

    This version braking is done best in a straight line, it will swap ends very quickly

    I don't doubt that, I just remember the hilarity of braking tests and swerving to get a better time.

    Finally put a lap in of the 370Z, love the sliding at Apricot. Its a nice drive, just need to perfect it. I'm .001 seconds off of Skyline's time after a few laps.

    EDIT: Scratch that, found a few tenths. 1:36.5 so far, second fastest on my friends list. And it was really not a great lap either.

    Round 3 is up. The 370 is fast on Panarama. There are some spots that if you cross the white line the lap is no good. The Rumble strip on the last corner going to the flag is one of those too.

    You mean the GT-R?

    My best so far is a 1:16.9xx, i can do better but i think i might struggle to do better than 1:16.500, so i'm just going to leave it at that.

    Gold time is 1:19.000 and the world record was a 1:12.xxx when i was doing the race, from an Aussie GTPlanet.net member.

    I'm assuming you guys mean 2:xx, not 1:xx ;-)

    I'm loving Bathurst, the track margins are a bit strict but it's a great fun challenge to nail it. I quite like the way the GTR tightens its line under power, too. I'm at 2'15.242 so far (I think).

    The GTPlanet guys have found that the final challenge that will count will be the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 Team RJN '13 @ SPA - maybe time for some pre-qualy practice ;-)
