NSX-GT Testing in Autopolis Circuit

Here's a pretty lengthy video of the NSX-GT spending some time with a couple of it's competitors testing on the Autopolis Circuit in Japan

I absolutely love the sound of these cars. Especially when they downshift through that sequential gearbox, oh boy ! Can't wait to see how they perform in the actual races though.

I think the NSX-GT has better suspension than the Nissan Nismo, saw a few spark fly up from when it was going through that straight.

That may be due to a very marginal difference in ground clearance between the two. The GTR sounds like having the stronger, but Honda has the one of the better, if not the best, motors in super gt.

Definitely could just be ground clearance with the diffusers or exhaust or something. May not necessarily relate to better suspension. Could actually end up turning the opposite and could cause issues down the road in terms of laps. But that's what testing is for, to fine-tune and refine every single piece of the vehicle that'll affect performance.

When's the NSX-GT going to race? As nice as seeing them on track is, I'd want to take a look at the scoreboard and see the lap times of each vehicle.

Not too sure.. to be honest the lap times won't prove anything about the car itself when it's in the race itself especially. It comes down to the drivers of each vehicle. The cars are so close knit in performance because of requirements and limitations, the differences are essentially minuscule.
