Why do americans put so much effort into the handling of their vehicles despite being a nation of mostly straight line roads? they put even more effort into the handling of their more mundane vehicles than Japan or Europe who's regions have very narrow and curvy roads.

    Anon what universe do you come from? Here in the Prime Earth euro and Japanese cars handle while American cars cannot, with the Camaro being the only real exception as far as veh class is concerned.

        Why do electric cars still suck so much on a track with their low center of gravity and perfect grip management? Shouldn't they be unstoppable?

          it wasn't stripped, and it did it on street tires.
          >he just ignores the fact that a tesla is a land barge whilst the GTR is a dedicated sports car
          lmao, post a japanese land barge that's as fast as a tesla with any modifications, lets see how fast a Lexus LS can clear tsukuba on street tires.

          >another record broken
          >actually its just the first ev to do below a 1 min lap time on this track

          its also the first fullsize luxury car to do it.

            You can't just say the tesla is a land barge because it needs 1000lbs of batteries to be competitive kek. Its not like tesla put in a fully furnished interior and premium luxury options besides a tablet for buttons and a yoke for a steering wheel. Its an electric performance car that is smaller in every metric than a charger except weight. Better yet find me a performance tesla that weighs under 4000lbs lmao

            so a ford tarus is on the same level as Japan's best? i don't know why this is the hill you're so desperate to die on, but okay. it just proves the OP's point that the average american car handles as good as Europe and Japan's super cars.

            can't wait till the Tesla roadster comes out. it'll be as fast as Japan's super GT cars and you'll be saying Super GT cars are totally land barges.

            I'm saying every tesla is a land barge regardless if its got 7 seats or 2. They literally cannot produce a lightweight car with electronic tech. I can guarantee the roadster with all its carbon fiber and weight saving will never be less than 3000lbs. Your excuse for the car being a land barge is solely based on the cars being incapable of being lightweight. Its not that tesla makes the best overweight car. Its that they can only make a good car that is overweight

          none of which did it on street tires, and are less than half the weight of the tesla with far more aero.

      Jesus Christ, it's a funny meme, but you know that's not true. There's a fricking Hellcat that's class competitive at Pikes Peak. The Viper is widely considered one of the greatest handling sports cars in the history of motorsports. America is home to some of the greatest technical tracks and winding roads in the world. America pioneered wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic design in cars.

      The answer is that we also invented the luxo-barge and people no longer want the crown vic roll when taking a corner at 10mph. People want their car to feel stable at all speeds and situations. Comfort is a primary concern, so manufacturers overdesign their cars to compensate for enormous weight.

      Also, because of the aforementioned tracks and higher number of enthusiasts, America still prides itself on performance. Dodge specifically didn't need to put high performance suspension on the Hellcat past straight line speed. They did it because they could and to envoke great seethe in others when that fat barge can pull more lateral G's on track than a goddamn Miata.

          Hellcats? I've seen three today. You want to count Scat Packs which have the same suspension setup? A dozen, easy. Vipers? Saw one on friday. C8s? Another easy dozen. Z28s? One today. Dark Horse Mustang? Two today.

          I don't live in a major city, either. I'm near one, but far enough that these cars are regular traffic. Not city folk here for fun. It's a Thursday.

        when you're going below 60mph, most road legal aero has a very negligible effect, and the weight of it is just a detriment on a cars handling.
