LMAO. Specifications. But i just noticed that the very first post had the specs i want. And by the way, I beg to differ that a Skyline costs $90k.

Why the hell would you buy this... man it sucks for $89,000...juss buy a Zo6. Lets see some stats of the Corvette Zo6:

Type: V8
Displacement: 5665 cc
Horsepower: 405 bhp @ 6000 rpm

Top Speed: 171 mph Braking, 60-0 mph:
104 ft Slalom Speed: 70.3 mph\

Look, soo much better... for only $50,000. Name one way it isnt better import/skyline lovers.

The Skyline's $90k brand new from Motorex. However that's the dumb-ass American price. Do you think Nissan Japan gave a shit about selling the Skyline here? No obviously not- that's why a private company has to bring them in... Most American's would want the Corvette over a Skyline- let them have the Vettes. Odds are they wouldn't know what to do with the Skyline. Ever compared maintenance costs?? Finally, in Japan, where the Skyline is meant to be sold, they're only like $40-50k. Z06 what?

Okay, I give up, WTF did you say. Please try the English language as Ebonics has fallen out of favor with people over the age of 12.

The only part of your post I understand is that you want to eat my ass. You could at least introduce yourself and buy me a drink first.

...and it is ones like this one that wonder why we all stare and laugh at their ignorance. I'd really like to see your resume...it must be good for more laughs...not only for its lack of discernable sentences, but for the "effort" you probably had to put when actually attempting to spell correctly.

Ohh, boy. Skylinelover, If I'm not mistaken, the Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Nismo S-Tune is the modified version of the Skyline. so therefore, it would be unfair for it to race a stock non-modified ZO6. If we're going to go all out tuned BS, check out the Linginfelter site. The Lingenfelter Corvette does 0-60 in, what was it? 1.9 sec? Let's see a Skyline pull that off. I mean, the Linginfelter Sonoma could waste a Skyline. and guess what. IT'S A F'IN TRUCK!!!!! But, I see you're just another one-post wonder so I don't know why I'm even typing this. Maybe just to make you understand the Skyline is a good car, but BY FAR, is NOT the best or fastest.

Since this is still going on about the Godzilla GTR-R34 and the Corvette Zo6. The whole thing with these cars are is that you have to think beyond your penis. What do we know so far, Japanese built sport motors have nearly industructable engines right. Thus this is where the turbo comes in. The US have always been about power and brute force, like the Corvette. But now the difference between the two cars are well set. And as was said earlier in this forum, modifying the GTR is a good way to go. Even if it is just an exhaust upgrade and maybe take the speed limiter of (it's set to gentlemens speed 180 k/ph). But just a simple upgrade like that makes the car breath easier and go faster. There are all little bits and pieces that can be changed and worked on, on the GTR series, and even the GTS-T series have been known to out-do their bigger brothers. Now when it comes to the Corvette, it's more for that straight line racing, not realy much on handling, but trust me the power is there. Plus, being a V8, "Glug", "Glug", "Glug". All the petrol gone in half the time it would take the GTR. I'm going to qoute a paragraph out of High Performance Imports magazine issue No.32 where they put a Corvette C5 and a GTR-R33 up against each other;

"If you are on the far side of the Atlantic then you probably haven't made it this far. Put down the magazine now if you have - you aren't going to like what I have to say. The corvette made me angry, really angry. It's a clynical marketing and manufacturing exercise that could have been so much better if it had been tempered with a little engineering expertise. the LS1 and sexy interior are the only two highlights of what was otherwise a dreadful motor vehicle. I had realy hoped for so much more. The Skyline GT-R simply does its thing. It doesn't matter that if lined up by a C5 on the Nullabor it will invariably get beaten. That's what boost controllers and turbos are for, if Billy-Bob wants to play for keeps. The Skyline GT-R is a real car - it's a usebale supercar that has been designed and fettled by engineers rather than marketeers. There is pride at stake for the Japanese, and a deep sense of both honour and responsibility attached to the pinnacle of their autommotive product. Pity the same can't be said for all maunfacturers."

Now that will be something to read about.
