Nissan GT-R

You Brits think you’re so cool, what with your Top Gear and whatnot. Well, TG’s testdrive of the new GT-R solidly cements that coolness for all time.

Holy cow. Only nit to pick with the video: guys, buy some racing tires or something. The squealing through the corners was just plain painful.

  1. There’s probably a good reason for the squealing. Those tires are being tortured. That reminds me of the monster barbie car I built for high school physics class (a long time ago now). The project was to build a shoebox sized racer without electric or combustion. I had three acetylene tanks filled with air at 100 psi manifolded to a die grinder turbine using a vacuum cleaner belt to the axel of a rather modded Barbie car. In early versions the car did not move anywhere, as the tires just evaporated. I tried giving it a push after releasing the valve and a little lift from the ground made the tires expand from 1.5in to 6in. Later I actually glued sandpaper to the wheels and wrapped wire around the outside. I also needed to adjust the output to ramp up in die grinder valve.

  2. Boooo, indeed. Can’t seem to find it on teh YuoToob at this point either.
    It was very impressive. I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it. Or be British. Or maybe get BBC America.
