Can a 2wd GTR Be Better than AWD? 

Views 215K

George Dodworth is a staple, a hero, and a legend in the GTR community, and after this event he can tack “pioneer” onto his GTR resumè. George made the bold decision to convert his 2009 Nissan GTR (which is famously AWD), into a 2-wheel-drive only setup for GTR World Cup 2021. While you’ll really just have to watch the video to understand the rollercoaster of events that transpired, we can expect that this change will be received with mixed emotions. Sacrilegious to some but exciting for others, regardless George and T1R are taking the inevitable steps required to catapult this platform farther and farther into uncharted territory. George knew it would be a gamble, and at this power level there is no such thing as “things just working right”, but we are happy to say that we are absolutely impressed by what we’ve seen so far. We are very curious to see where the data they gather leads, and we are hoping that TX2K21 sets the stage for some untapped potential!

I think he's figured something out 🤔.. I've always wondered what a GTR would do at this power level with just rear wheel drive looks good

George is the Man and 1320 is The Car channel. this GTR turning into GTST should be documentary on history channel with Mr Dave Attenborough narrating it.

Subaru did this already and people loved it when they removed the lsd from the front so u had predominantly rear wheel drive subi

That is super impressive. That wing moving is crazy. I would have thought that would pull weight of the back of the car. Did they do the wing like that for AWD and should it be different in RWD? Interesting.
Wi5i Month ago
i imagine it was to help keep the car planted early in the run since it opens up down track like DRS...could be wrong.....do you think going to a radial tire would help them in the 60 since they backed up a tenth and change from AWD?

in greece I have seen the following. four-wheel drive that uses all-wheel drive at the start for 18 meters and then deactivates it and becomes rear-wheel drive to reduce loads and losses

my ass gets 0-50 in 7secs, after eating hot ass spicy food, maybe if they run on mexican taco grease instead of e85 and the famous "red sauce" theyll get 3secs at 120.

The pass with the silver one is a stark comparison of how much more user-freindly the 2WD becomes.

at some point, AWD does absolutely nothing at all. Extra weight, no grip increase, etc.

You are correct sir. But what if it was controlled by an AI computer and vectored power according to which wheel needs it the most; front to back, left to right

Yes yes things are changing in the two wheel drive world if you got enough money when you got enough smarts and a good team you can get the traction
CMDR Boom Month ago
Being the calculative type, what is the weight advantage in running a GTR in RWD? I would have a hard time thinking it's better than to take the engine package and putting it in a lighter platform if you really wanted to see what it's capable of.

You could hear it hurting on the last pass. Something ain't right. But I have to say seeing that 6 second pass with only two wheel drive was pretty crazy. It's insane what people are doing with these r35s.
