    The GT-R is a bit long in the tooth at this point. It is still a fantastic performance car but once getting up to the $176,585 asking price of the Nismo Edition one has to stop and ask if the car is worth the money today. When the AMG GT R starts about $20k cheaper defending the Nismo becomes all the more difficult. Not to mention the AMG GT R offers better weight distribution, weighs 224 pounds less, and has a newer dual clutch gearbox. Plus there is the more modern and sleeker overall platform. All for less money. So what about how they drive? The AMG GT R sounds better, has less lag, more torque, better brakes, better suspension, and just overall has the more responsive motor. The only downside really is that the Nissan GT R offers more traction which all wheel drive gives you but it comes with weight penalties. These cars are about performance ultimately. Which one is the better performer? They are not dragsters but the Nismo runs the 1/4 mile in 11.0 @ 126.8 compared to 11.4 @ 127.6 for the GT R. All wheel drive provides the elapsed time benefit but the GT R pulls harder. The roadcourse is where they really shine. MotorTrend takes them to Laguna Seca and the AMG GT R crushes the Nismo: The argument is made that it is the tires which have the AMG running so quickly but if that is the case, change the tires on the Nismo and prove it. No tire change will make the Nismo lighter or better balanced than the GT R. Quite simply, the AMG GT R is the better track car.

    Where do you even begin with this mess? After the article about yet another Dime Racing Huracan horror story BoostAddict was contacted by the owner as well as multiple parties contributing further details. Suffice it to say, Dime Racing is in big trouble. Don't say we didn't warn you. We did. BoostAddict.com covered this mess involving Steve Atneyel and Rod Shuqom (or whatever he is calling himself these days) of Dime from the beginning. It's all crumbling around them. Let's start with the major points. Dime Racing is crunched for cash. That happens if you take in money and do not deliver products or services but instead use those funds elsewhere. Diverting funds and funneling customer cash into maintaining operations is not a solid business model. Porsche Financial Services wants $216k+ not including legal fees and other damages: Leasing a car for tuning development is not unheard of. Usually high end tuners buy the cars as a leased car is technically not supposed to be modified. Regardless, you need to make the payments either way. Dime Racing did not according to the very well detailed complaint from Porsche Financial: http://www.boostaddict.com/images/dimehuracan.pdf Things do not end there. They also did not pay their rent according to another lawsuit: You can read the landlord's full complaint here: https://www.scribd.com/document/358758961/Dime-Racing-Failure-to-Pay-Rent-Court-Complaint-Document# If they can not make the car payments and can not pay their rent, should you be sending your car to them? Oh, it gets better. How about this $1.1 million? Essentially that amounts to just over a million dollars in frozen assets. It seems a lot of people are going the legal route to get what they are owed from Dime Racing. It is doubtful they will see any of it but somebody at Dime at some point is going to have to face the music. In addition to all of this Huracan owner Brian McLevis contacted BoostAddict.com with additional details from his Dime Racing experience. His car is now headed to Underground Racing to get sorted: There you have it folks. Feel free to read over the complaints and the customer impressions. At this point, BoostAddict.com is sick of Dime Racing and having to say 'I told you so' regarding them. The legal system can sort this mess out.

    The Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce it not a drag car. It is designed to be an incredible roadcourse performer which shows with it sub-7-minute Nurburgring laptime. The Tesla Model X on the the hand is a one-trick pony. It does that trick incredibly well as we saw the other day with an 11.427 @ 118.84 quarter mile pass. The Aventador SV was tested by magazines running as quick as 10.4 @ 134.71. This is yet another example of magazine times and real world quarter mile times being very different things. The Model X sets a new record with its 11.418 elapsed time. The Aventador wins by just edging the elapsed time but it is much faster trapping 129.38 miles per hour: The Model X P100D is the quickest and fastest SUV in the world. The Lamborghini Aventador is a completely different kind of car. If you want to see this same Aventador SV in some more runs against a Model S P100D, here you are:
