Picked up a set of SW2s (from a Gen V Viper) for the Gen 3. 34 lbs lighter than the my Gen 3 wheels!

The Gen V's are still so expensive though. Much better cars in that price range ($80-160k depending on the options)

True. All the GT3 talk in the other thread, but the Viper (ACR) is a better/faster car for someone track focused for sure.

In that price range, I would be shopping used Gallardos though.

ACR territory puts you in a used Gallardo and a brand new C7 GS

Is it really THAT much better? They're all pretty good cars and I think the Viper is harder to drive if you're not very experienced. Of course I've driven neither on the track. This is based on all my YouTube research.

2018 911 GT3 RS - 6:56 Ring time
2017 Viper ACR - 7:01
2010 Viper ACR - 7:12
2018 911 GT3 - 7:12

Also, there are a few times listed for each car. I just picked the highest. And yes, the Ring is different from many tracks. Just highlighting that a second or two difference isn't a big deal.

For the majority of people here (myself included) I could drive an S2000 better than a "real" race car on the track.

I didn't mean that as a slight against your car, for what it's worth.

GT3 is $143K MRSP. The RS is $175K MSRP. Not too far off.

Oh I know. It doesn't bother me. I know it might see the track like a few times ever.

I'm just saying a lot of folks (not just here) say things like track car this and track car that. I'm sure if you put them in a non-track version of a car they would drive exactly the same as the "better" version. For example a 911 Turbo vs. a 911 GT3. You'll probably do the same or 2 seconds better in the GT3. ZOMG THE TURBO IS WORTHLESS.

I agree completely as well

I only make these arguments because I'm poor

Yes. And if rumors are to be believed, there may be a 6th in the near future.
