I unfortunately have not driven a GTR. I have driven both DCT and MT E92 M3 in around town/spirited country road driving and I'd pay a premium to have the MT. I'd be faster on the track with DCT of course but what the heck. Shaving a second off my lap time is polishing a turd. I'm doing it for fun.
I can not really say since I did not drive them back to back. Both Pushed really bad at entry, then "fixed" themselves to get the correct line and exited the turns like a scolded cat. What I missed about them is there was no real steering correction needed, no balancing on the edge of traction or playing with the slip angles. The tires hated it though and complained the whole time.

Now the Stripped race car was brilliant, but even to this day they can't seem to keep it running. It is the same with Skeen's GTR. Fast when running, but the older C6R is a heck of a lot more reliable.

Edit - Forgot to mention the brakes...They are made by god himself.
