I predicted every race, because they paired all the wrong cars together and set up the failures predictably. Then the last Race they decide to do 1/2 Mile. Thats BS. Its one thing when you have all 8 off the line @1/2 mile, its another when your pitting failure against one another. The Dodge sorry, had no business being there at its weight.

I'd be interested to see the tested 1/4 miles time for each car. Not what they ran there but the published Motortrend numbers.

Why would they pair up those 8?
Cayenne vs 911 Turbo? Give me a break .... they didn't even need to run that race.
The 911 vs Ferrari was a good one, but change the rules for the last race?
Not worth their time our ours

What kind of magic did the corvette pull off when the 500 was about to slingshot around it??

I like to disassemble things.
I noticed the same thing. That was very odd.

I'm sure it involved money in someone's hand, lol. The GT500 is factually faster other than to 60mph because of the weight distribution of the Vette.

The GT500 was about to fly by the vette and all of a sudden basically stopped, lol. Something not right for sure.

On an unprepared surface they are very close. It could go either way.

But if you watch carefully, the GT500 had a burst of momentum that was suddenly stopped. Car physics don't normally work that way.
