The 3800lb curb weight doesn't help the GT350's cause as a drag car or as a road course car either. The GTR is 140lb lighter but even that's too heavy for a race car.
If you strip some weight out of the '05-'09 GT, add a few N/A bolt-ons for more power, and upgrade suspension/brakes/tires, you'll have a car that'll give a GT350 a run for its money at less than 20% of the cost. Now there's some food for thought!
