Before that video creates any confusion, that BRZ doesn't have a supercharger. Nor is that a Mustang GT. RA isn't a tight track either. :)

The answer is 42 seconds obviously. But if one of the FR-S's rear tires is over-inflated by 1.5 psi, it will spin out and the Mustang will win. Book it.

I know some people prefer the sound of Ford's 5.0, but I don't get it. Chevy's LSX engine sounds less hollow and much more aggressive to me.

If you want a manual, but want to make a somewhat financially sound decision, trade for a slightly-used BRZ/FR-S.

Yeah it's more noticeable on EL tunes. I remember hearing it distinctly when I was running the stage 1 file. I can still hear it a bit on my current UEL stage 2 setup though.

Yep Sutcliffe can definitely drive. But as you said, the McLaren is still just a road car. Apples to oranges comparison vs. a track-prepped GT86.

For pre-2015 cars, the FR-S has a softer front spring rate, and stiffer rear.

FR-S: 2.3k front, 3.8k rear
BRZ: 2.7k front, 3.5k rear

Whether that's better or worse will depend on how loose you...
