Video Link: Best Motoring 2008 February Videos

January 5, 2008

Best Motoring 2008 Feb edition is out and someone has already uploaded it to YouTube. While this link is surely not going to last very long you may as well take a look while you can and buy the DVD when it is more available or perhaps even translated.

A brief translation of some of the review was provided by a GTROC Member over on the GTR Register Forums UK:

Basically, Mizuno-san explains why the new PM platform is better, and how it actually works better with a car that weighs 1740kgs – namely by having the transaxle separate from the engine, it allows better power apportionment to the back wheels under acceleration – there is a 0.2 second weight transfer that can be used. Also, the car is set up for over 2G sideways forces.

Also – what was interesting is he said “so we have laps at Nurburgring in the 7 30s… I say 30s now, but that might change next year…”

As for Gan-san, he likes the car, but pointed out to Mizuno-san that the car understeers a bit more than he’d like on downslope/uphill corners. Says that with all the computers, that should be able to be taken care of. But, it is one car that he would love to drive at Nurburgring.
