Georg they show the tires, suspension, engine.. and they do describe what parts they use before the race especially if its the for test for that car for example that nsx-r you've been talking about they show tyres every time and sometimes they can be different but don't say didn't notice you, above that Japanese tuning is not just about ecu editing you can smell a Japanese modified cars miles away

@GT how will you notice a coiloverkit if they don´t name it befor the race, how will you notice extra oilcooler on a 350Z to allow the car to go 5laps time attack runs (350Z tend to quickly overheat at the track) if they don´t name it... many track battles at youtube only show the race not the car description befor... in many cases they used non optional semi slicks, extra cooler, modified suspension etc. etc. things you don´t see on a running car...

they run modified cars but anyone like me would notice the difference i find it an easy to thing to realize..
ps many times they put tuned versions but after bringing the stock first

Yes they do run slightly modified cars sometimes but they mention that in the video. For Best Motoring Internatinal videos it's easy - the translation is there, but for non translated videos, unless you know Japanese, it's hard to notice those things.

Lucaly, in later episodes I do not notice such things anymore. Maybe because there is no 280 hp limit anymore and they don't need to give any privileges to Japanese cars.

Those days of NSXes outbraking and outcornering anything but grand prix car are gone and BM is less biased. At least that's my impression.

Georg, is that what they get after all this?? if they were to write an article put some pictures in it and claim some numbers they test like the others they wouldn't be so suspicious like that..

GT notice that many laptimes driven by BM are driven with modified cars... specially the NSX-R they use is in mayn cases a private owned one with modification at brakes and suspension and tires. At other cars they add extra oil cooler to prepare them for a battle with more expansive non japanese cars... done at a 350Z in a test vs the e46 M3.

I try avoiding downloading as much as I can so it would be useful if you prepared some screenshots of select BM episodes that will point out.

fastestlaps i have watched all the videos of BM lap times submitted by me if you take for example a picture of the results maybe you check them quicker instead of torrent downloading more and more GB's..
