Went up against a G37 today with the type R in +R mode. Ofcourse the car gave me a good run for my money. Those G37's are no joke...I lost slightly in the straight away. That G37 couldnt lose me though as much as it wanted to. I punked out on the cor ers though...not sure how fast a Type R can remain stable in a turn. I'm learning

You lost? My full bolt-on SI has beat 2 modified G37s’s. I don’t think I’d beat a type r though. He must’ve had a decent amount of work done.

Glad to see you’re Playing with +R mode! On a straight there are lots of cars that are faster. As far as stable in a turn it depends on road conditions of course But I’m finding that the CTR will not reach its limits on the street unless your driving absolutely bonkers. A couple weeks ago went out for a blast at night and was minding my own business when either a M5 or M3 passed me so I went out to play. Where I was the road was not flat and I lost whatever car it was. The thing is these cars are light and that’s it’s super power. That’s what gets the handling so sweet along with great engineering. My adrenaline was going so I was going faster than I normally would’ve in “sane mode” but the car really stuck to the ground really well. Something else also came up fast around the BMW and I lost it on the curves sections of road that were not even. The road had not only nice curves but also dips in the road. Was a river road in Boston so it’s my little race track at night when there’s no speed traps. The car gripped really well, above my expectations. As I said before, it’s really Hard to find the limits of a CTR on the streets “safely”. It’s not the fastest car but definitely a fun car that can play with some big dogs in the right situations, i.e. not from a dead stop!

Yeah I agree this Car is AMAZING in high speeds. Im talking 100MPH + I am amazed at how stable the car is. Now before anyone jumps down our throats about this, please know I am not a lunatic." I am def being As safe as can be". That G37 was debadged so i am sure some work was done to it....
It only was ahead of me by half a car like Jes_Se said. If i wanted to I am sure i could've passed him, but i'm not stupid and it was getting dangerously fast.....

It is also funny the passenger the G37 had in his car was cursing him out and telling him to slow down lol

Yeah have to be careful. I learned a long time ago not to a race people because you don’t know how capable they or their car is. About 25 years ago I was minding my own business buzzing in the left lane of the same curvy river road and I passed a lowered car, forget what it was but it had really loud paint on it and it tried to follow me. I wasn’t racing it, just maintaining my speed and he was tagging along. I was in a modded 1990 Integra GS. After a little while I looked and he lost it on a curve and did a 180 so he was facing the oncoming traffic. Thank God no one got hurt but very well could have. If I go fast by myself and kill myself that’s my own doing. Don’t want to take anyone with me. But yes, I agree. These cars are very stable at 100+mph. I don’t maintain those speeds but just pop up there there if there’s no traffic on the highway then maintain “normal” speeds. Nowadays you can be doing 75mph and cars will pass you like your doing 40mph on the highway.

Have fun but drive carefully!!!

Something wrong with your car. I'm in a tuned ext no bolt on. G37 in front of me couldn't pull away from me. It was lowered and had an exhaust. Those cars are heavy.
