Huh, are you really that dumb?

All GT3, or at least all i know of, are slower in a straight line than their road car origin.

Gearing (homologated and not allowed to change it) and drag.
We were on our limiter in top at 277 on a good lap. Road 458 does ??

Michelins are taller, so we can go 286 (at Bathurst)  Pirelli give 277 max.

One of us is dumb, but it's not me. It's the one claiming a road 458 will go 300kph at PI.

I love my car. Buy your own

From the driver instructor of a 458 road car at Phillip Island... When asked how fast.......

301 on GPS (vbox installed) (more shown on dash) no video, didn't have a GoPro at the time. Only have video from a photographer in the passenger seat on a run where we did 285kph from memory -

Prove it.

I don't need to. I know. Lucky for you the vbox data been lost, was two years ago.

But you're calling a highly credentialed person a liar, not just me.

I see your gums flapping, but I don't see any proof.

F40LM driven by Noske 300kph down the straight. Slicks, aero, 750hp, lighter than a 458 and Noske. Saying a road 458 would be as fast as that is just silly.

You're still wrong, in fact more wrong now you posted that.

And your maths is bad too.

Last I checked, 301 is more than 300.

Simonsen told me he got up to 270 in the Enzo. lol @ you trying to convince us that a road 458 is faster than an Enzo down the straight at PI, or as fast as an F40LM.

Come on! Just admit it was an exaggeration

I did 245 in my boxer, are you telling me an enzo is only 25 faster... You're deluded.

And wrong.

Again.
