Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

2012 Corvette ZR1 Takes on Nurburgring

Awesome time on the Nurb track. Some ppl say it's fake but the only thing I can see is that the same pilot can even beat this time. I love Nurburgring.

ZR1 Performance

That time is amazing. Look at the list of production cars that are faster. Nürburgring lap times - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There is only one supposed real production car that is actually faster by 1 second, the Porsche GT2 RS, which has Porsche claiming the time, but no video or other proof. Plus to compare I believe that GT2 RS is $250,0000 vs $120,000 for the ZR1.

That ZR1 is setup to go fast. Nurburgring is the true test of a cars speed, handling, and power capabilities.

Thanks for the video.

Love that last turn @ 180mph.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
