Lame? The first thing I think of is the new Nissan GT-R :P

It's basically a car that anyone can drive to teh point where the LOOK like a race driver, but really aren't. I think it's a total show-off car and it is a bunch of hype. I won't deny it's speed. What I don't like is how it generates it's cornering ability. Sure, many people would actually need those computers, but I'd prefer to learn the harder, old-fashioned way: no driving aids.....


its funny to me how u judge the gtr on its cornering ability, they is just so damn fast that people with $100,000+ cars bitch out loud all day everyday, its just due to its awd system, like sti and evo, but the thing is....is that the evo x has a FAR SUPERIOR awd system than the sti or gtr....i dont see u bitching about that, it just struck me weird....if u like driving the old way just get a 80's awd car and drive it, besides most cars today r "smart" for our own safety

Hmmm, it's good that you posted, because I have a lot to think about, lol.


EDIT: Here's my reply to that.

Cars such as the Lancer Evolution and the GT-R allow the average joe to be able to drive like a professional. There's no real effort needed to actually go fast. But cars like the STI do no utilize things like "AYC" to aid in cornering, just AWD for stability. What I don't like is that the EVO and GT-R use "artificial" ways of gaining mechanical advantages (such as active computers), while the STI can go on without using computers to save it's ass (not stability control, I'm talking about computers that help in yaw-like motions).

It (the STI) may have an automated AWD system, but it can still be manually locked to a certain setting, therefore, making the car more predictable and less intrusive. AWD systems like the GT-R's ATTESA and Mitsubishi's barrage of computers constantly adjust things. It may feel more in control, but for a driver, can also mean less predictable.


If that does not clear things up, I will be pleased to continue this conversation.....

Worst car ever - 1997 Chevrolet Car





^As to this

Agreed that the GTR is too computer heavy. I see something a bit different though. If a novice driver goes out and gets himself a GTR or a new EVO he's going to be fast. He will probably smoke drivers in lesser cars, but it will only be because of the car. Even if he gets amazingly fast in that car, if put in any other car he will be unable to drive without the electronic aids. Those computerized systems allow for very judicious use of the throttle and brakes. Without the computer systems to save you though, you have to rely on your own skills with throttle and brake control and overall management of the tires and brakes. You can actually stomp on the pedal in a GTR to launch and it will give just enough throttle to keep you from experiencing heavy wheelspin. In say...a toyota supra, stomping on the throttle will result in a very nice burnout, tire wear, and little forward progress.

What's interesting is that when you gain experience without using all thes ecomputers, they can actually elad to slower times due to their constant intrusions. Some of the older cars actually depended on some wheelspin and sliding to make them go so fast. Look at the older porche 911s, especially those at the more club racing level. Before porsche got the tail sliding under control, many drivers would often take the turns by doing a powerslide to work with the rear heavy car. If it had some kind of slide control system in place though, the car would try and stop the backend from sliding out, resulting in a slower car.

I doubt a person will be totally unable to drive without electronic aids. Probably not effectively but a person can always learn to adjust.

I wouldn't be so general with traction and stability controls as being intrusive. Yes, some manufacturers engages a lot earlier than expected: Mercedes-Benz. Yet other manufacturers are rather conducive to the car's pace: Ferrari and Porsche. Every laptime that Ferrari test drivers Marc Gene and Benuzzi has done in the Scuderia has been in Race mode. Even the guys at evo magazine had their best in Race mode rather than the TC mode. Even if you read reviews about the 911 GT3 no one has ever mentioned the traction control as being an issue.
