Random question

A GTS has lift at very high rpms, better brakes, and 6 gears. When someone is just cruisn in a GTS, are they basically crusin in a GT since lift doesnt kick in until very high rpms (minus better brakes and the 6 speed)?

Also isnt a GTS auto have worse gearing so it is actually slower than a GT auto unless you are going up to the higher rpms?

an auto GTS will eventually pass a GT. Also, the GTS torque does not come in until lift, and when it does it's only 5 more lb-ft than a GT. the gt torque comes in at 4200, so a GT can take a GTS off the line.

lol. So the engines are the same then at lower rpms? I just always see people say buy a GTS but the everyday driving just isnt that great if it is the same as the GT.

True. The rush of adrenaline is probably worth it.
