    Understand you are joking, but I would be very nervous driving a Senna. I think it's the first time ever I heard Randy say that he left some traction control on, "to take the edge off." He also said he was still getting used to the aero - meaning to me that even though he set a production car lap record he believes the car has a faster lap time in it. That car is a rocket ship headed off track unless you know what you are doing.

    Buy a 2019 or newer and get the 350. The Gap IMHO has been severely narrowed with the 19+ models. R gets you very expensive carbon wheels, 10mm wider tires, painted red calipers a rear seat delete and different interior color/ stitching. If you could find one with out the ADM the differences may be worth the 5-7k. but with ADM you are talking a 82K plus R vs a 65-67K MSRP (better deals to be found) GT350. If buying used and ADM out of the equation it' up to you and how you drive it. I don't think the R is worth the premium in performance. I'll never forget in 2016 seeing a GT350 selling in San Diego for 126K. NEVER PAY ADM. I bought a 2019 fully loaded for 55k OTD. 3 months old with 1k miles on it. ADM is a NO GO. Those 2016s now selling low 40s. My friend just bought a 2018 with 3k miles for 42 OTD.

    Yea, this isn't really relevant to the thread but I had to post this for anyone that hasn't seen it. Walter Rohl rally racing in the early 80's.
    No DCT here. Just good footwork and a sequential shifter in his Audi Quattro S1. AMAZING!

    That always amazed me. He's basically driving at unbelievable speeds on the crappiest roads through a crowd of people!

    Really I want to see the Supra compared to a loaded PPL2 or 1LE.
