I dont think so

and he seemed to be using Launch Control, because i didnt realise he wanted to race until i heard him build the revs before the lights went (NB: this was on a private road, and no road rules were broken LOL) and there really wouldnt be any driver skill with an F1 and launch control for a traffic light grand prix would there?

But i guess i should disclose,  my GT3 isnt standard,  and the 4:11 diff gears make a huge difference to acceleration.

I'm confident you're mistaken. LC is not that flash for a start, and although the 0-100 time using it is good, the real time from deciding you're going to use it, to it actually being ready to be used AND then activated, is a lifetime.... so you were probably 4 seconds ahead of him already!

you still have to change gear too... and if a bad driver pulls a shift 1000rpm to early, or pulls twice (very common), then he's going backwards fast!

a 430 has almost 500 BHP, your 996 has around 400 at best??... weight is not massively dissimilar either...

 a 430 is faster than a 996, but the difference in drivers can swing it the other way.

Someone needs to watch this video:

My old 996 GT3 had no problems demolishing F430s at Eastern Creek, despite the slightly lower power-to-wieght.

the green one seems good value
but, its green
and I dont like the leather seats in a gt3

a few of the others seem to have been used on tracks extensively, one of them one targa tasmania, another comes on a tandem trailer, another one won something else outright

I realise thats the main purpose of these cars,  but as a potential buyer you hope to find one that hasnt been a regular racing car

while i understand your sentiment, i think it is a rarity to find a GT3 that has not had extensive track use, i'd suggest very few are purchased and purely street driven.

i guess its like a F355CH all cars tracked, yet still highly sought after.

My GT3 has also had its fair share of track time, but as a result its also a much better car than any standard untouched GT3. (in terms of how it drives, not how it would win a concourse for being 100% original)
