He didn't have enough "car" to keep up.Enough what? Put the same driver in an R35 and no FWD vehicle in the world could come close.
The driver of the R35 was not a Noob dude. This isn't some ricer street race from a stop light where you can argue "oh he couldn't drive it properly". These are seasoned drivers I'm talking about here, ON a Race Track. It was Forged Performances R35 GTR. FP is located in Georgia. It is driven by Sharif. He has NASA Time Trial track records and victories as well as victories in Redline Time Attack. So, he's not a cookie cutter driver.
Word of advice for you, get out to a race track and experience for yourself what it takes to push a car to its limits. Just because you have a RWD or AWD does not automatically mean you are going to be one of the fastest guys on the track. Until you have experienced this, you will continue to be blind to anything Motorsports related and continue your rather uneducated points of view when it comes to FWD, AWD and RWD performance.
Sharif and the FP GTR. The first pic is the FP GTR.
And this is what it looked like behind Rado.
And NO I'm not saying FWD is better than AWD or RWD. I'm saying that in Motorsports and REAL Racing, a lot more factors come into play than just being FWD, RWD or AWD. You are either fast or you are not. Having AWD don't make you the best thing on the track automatically....JUST BECAUSE you have AWD.
