    Nice article. There's no doubt the Type R is a better performance car but to be fair the 370Z (base car as well) is ancient and the STI is also long on the tooth. The acceleration times for the STI are the slowest I have seen recorded. I'm willing to bet they could have brought an EVO X and it may have outperformed the 370Z and STI.

    I love these too. Really nice way of comparing the cars.

    The Type R's power to weight ratio is definitely impressive. The roadholding # is pretty amazing too.

    Surprised to see the Type R has 3-5 seconds advantage on a short 1.1 mile track in wet condition. And that sort of performance looks very repeatable too.

    I wonder what the actual lap times were.

    I'm just waiting for the big match. RS vs CTR

    Can't wait to see focus fans cry.

    I wonder why the 370Z doesn't come with an LSD?

    Nice write-up. Kinda slow times for the STi. In my 04 STi (stock), I would run 13.2 - 13.4.
