    Johnny O was driving conservatively. No reason to push a protoype hard for a publicity stunt.

    no reason to take it around a track if you're not going to let it wind out either IMO, he could have done most of that on the street - too public i guess

    I guess you don't understand how much development dollars are sitting in that car going around the track. Gm doesn't want it in pieces against the wall. It was GM's decision to take the car to Laguna after having Nissan drag the GT-r out at the Ring.

    GM got so much free publicity from this event it's not even funny. All they had to do was haul a car to Californa and have one of their drivers take it for a few laps.

    street tires... watch this video and then go watch the GT-R at the 'Ring... this car is on street tires... the GT-R is on racing slicks... you can tell by the different sound that they make.

    and I am ready to see this car go to the 'Ring :wiggle:
