you can say that for both cars but yes I agree neither car is a drag car but it is telling that they are so even.

Wider body, larger wing, wider tyres all amounting in a significant amount more drag. The GT3 is faster than the RS in the straights on track for sure but the moment you need to slow down / turn as you say the GT3 falls far behind

The RS is for going around a track and having more mechanical and aero grip, not for drag racing.

On a car with 160hp, 20hp will make a bigger difference.
Right, essentially no difference which is my point. I would love to see back to back dynos for comparison.

I bet it doesnt fall far behind. Same driver, same tires and conditions I bet they are too close to call.

My point is you shouldn't be so surprised by this. As if 20hp, on paper, made you believe the RS was supposed to be faster in a straight line.

Plenty of videos and track tests out there of the GT3RS and GT3 on the same track. The RS is faster in every single one of them. On a shorter track, the spread is smaller (1-2 seconds). On a larger track, like the Nurburgring, the spread is larger (17 seconds).

Thanks buddy! Time to bring the touring down here, I think the touring might be the fastest in a straight line.

+1


Owned and tracked both GT3 & 3RS. The RS is a step above on track.

The 20 horses are gained from air dam effect not available at lower speed. A difference should not be expected in a drag race.
