f40's lap on ring isn't real. Forza 3 vs GT5?!!!

The F40 having 2.17 seconds on Tsukuba over the CTR is far more significant than 8 seconds on the ring. The f40 would be faster on the vast majority of race tracks

@ hmmmeeeee: The Ferrari does handle better, more even weight distribution and less weight, the F40 does seem to be a better track car, so you do have a point.

RUF - a machine created for long lonely autobahns, Ferrari - a weapon for the track. Two great classic cars, extraordinary. True respect from me.

@Shaggy:
Faster on the straight and higher top speed does not specify which car is faster. Lap times on track are important. 2,17s on short track is significant difference.
Be faster at a given time is the top speed, being faster in overall means to be faster on the track.

@ hmmmeeeee: Actually, the Ruf is faster, top speed is 215 MPH if I'm correct, I'd still have the Ferrari, though. They sould have called that Ruf Porsche, "Yellow Frog".
