    • Misleading race - Porsche 991 GT3 RS instantly puts bus lengths on a 2016 Cadillac CTS-V LT4

      The 911 GT3 RS is lighter than the Cadillac CTS-V by about a thousand pounds. That is significant. However, it has much less power and much less torque. The GT3 RS should win this race but not in the fashion portrayed in the video.


      The exaggerated difference makes it looks like the GT3 RS traps 20 miles per hour higher than the Caddy. The way the race should look is the CTS-V's torque advantage keeps it with the GT3 RS at the start as the GT3 RS slowly edges it out and pulls gear by gear.

      Let's get real here, the CTS-V traps just over 121 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile and makes 580 lb-ft of torque to the wheels from a positive displacement blower. It has a mountain of torque early in the rev range. The GT3 RS is maybe a 127 car on a real strip and not in a magazine test.

      This race should not look like this and it's another example of Gustav muddying the waters for views.

        Ya these two cars are near identical int he drag race arena. The GT3 edges the CTS, but not by much, and most of the edge is taken from the launch. Take that out of the equation (AKA roll racing, and the two are damn close. C&D only trapped 2mph slower with the CTS-V.

        I wish I hadn't watched that video, adding to their watch count. But damn that RS sounds good.
