    It's there. Only 600 views though. I guess it's no big boobs in a CTS-V.

    No, I meant that I took a video of my brother racing the Veyron with a GoPro strapped to the GTR; that one is awesome and the only one out there.

    i guess i don't understand drag racing completely but it sure looked to me like he beat you down the track

    now i understand that you were a bit slow to react (.25 R/T compared to his .08)

    logically to me it would seem that he beat you even though you had a faster quarter mile run (because of your .25 R/T)

    I don't even read video comments, not on youtube, nowhere. There is nothing, ever, worthwhile to read in them and they're always full of dirt-bag trolls that probally pimp a 93 civic.

    now i understand that you were a bit slow to react (.25 R/T compared to his .08)

    R/T is reaction time to the light. It has nothing to do with your ET. The clock will not start before you start moving. The GTR managed to pull a faster(an amazing really) R/T and better 60'
    but lit reeled him in after that.
    That's what the idiots on the comments page can't wrap their head around(not you- you're fine..), and that's why even though the GTR appeared to be ahead of the V, he acutally ran a slower time, and there-for lost.
    look at lit's slip

    the GTR indeed pulled better 60' and a better R/T but by the 330' lit was behind by only a few hundreds, and by the 1/8th he had him beat. Technically, the GT-R left before the light turned green.

    Re: LitaGator is famous. Motor Trend link with his race vs GTR

    M5, you're spot-on. I can't believe there are so many morons out there. Here's what I just posted on the "comments" page.

    I’m in the CTS-V. That’s my brother in both races. Here’s a little explanation of what transpired.

    From reading the myriad negative comments all over the internet, I can only conclude that many people are either uninformed, or — simply idiots. Someone’s reaction-time has no effect on the ET (time); the “clock” doesn’t start until each racer moves.

    In the first race they had, my brother took off and the Veyron didn’t launch; he had difficulty with the launch control and didn’t leave till about 1-minute later, cutting a 12.X at 139. So technically my brother “spanked” the Veyron in the first race. But that’s a silly conclusion to make.

    In the second race, the one that’s all over the internet, my brother let the Veyron have the jump to see whether he was going to run this time, and he did. No one wants to see another “race” where one car leaves a minute before the other. So, he waited for the Veyron to go, making sure the race was on, and then hit it. Regardless, the clock doesn’t start until each racer moves.

    The GTR is lightly-modified, but even on it’s best day, it would get spanked by the Veyron. The fastest I’ve seen my brother run is a 10.7; I believe that his car has a 10.6 or even a 10.5 in it with a better launch. But even then, it’s at least a half-second slower than the Veyron.


    ----------

    And here's my comment about why the GTR looks to be going faster

    If you look at the r/t, my brother gets a jump on me. Because of the camera angle, it looks like it’s even or I’m ahead, but I believe he was slightly ahead the whole time. What appears to be a significant difference between the two cars is really only a couple feet, if that.

    I wouldn't have even bothered Lit. Loud mouth people that talk shit about topics they no nothing about will just shit-talk some more once you expose them for the idiots they are.

    Re: LitaGator is famous. Motor Trend link with his race vs GTR



    This is the slip i was referring to ... the one from the CTS-V vs GT-R video

    i guess it makes sense if you're going to say 'who has the best quarter mile time' to go just by times
    but in a drag race i would think that R/T should factor in to it since that's part of the skill and the clock should start when the light goes green
    (and in that slip where he jumped the gun with a negative r/t then you should be disqualified from that run)

    and i agree not to feed the trolls

    cheers guys

    i think that most people dont get that generally in drag racing at a track, its two people racing two clocks that only start after the car moves after being told to go by a green light, not each other.

    Hey Lit congrats and dont sweat the negative comments..Haters gotta hate..I think Kat Williams says it best:

    "So what!! so she/he keeps talking about you and hating on you, that just tells you your doing something right. Do you think someone is gonna hate on you if your broke, got no job, or are ugly as hell. A "hater's" job is..to hate period. If you have someone hating on you right now you better think of how to get 5 more people hating on you by Christmas. You need haters to make you stronger..without haters most people wouldn't try to become better. Just tell them "b*tch you just hate me because you can't be me..."

    People are dumb. That would explain why the idiots at the track red-light all the time. And then they think, ha! I beat him, and then they look at the slip and see they were actually slower.
