some versions you can leave it in auto but i can not. !-2 gear shift are tough to get right bc they come up so quick but other then that its just pulling the paddle and holding it straight

On the street the car is a handful bc it spins like crazy

that car must be fun as hell to drive...getting sideways and spinning all over the place is the way to go...what about cruising at 65 on the highway then downshifting and having all four wheels chirp through the whole acceleration! i can't even imagine but i know it would be super fun!

Such a tragedy people will still mistake it for an Infinity G... especially without the wing. (Don't get me wrong, sick car for people who know.)

sorry dude but if you think a R35 looks like a G you are crazy

Any real car enthusiast knows. At the same time IMO a TTG SL is the ultimate car.

Looks and the go to back it up. I think a Z4 looks like a baseball cap to me but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Different strokes for dif folks

I didn't say *I* thought it looked like that. General public. I'm sure us Z'ers get a lot more attention than you do in non-enthusiast crowds. Which is why I said it's a tragedy for such a nice car. Calm down.

i know what ur saying....

Most people around me know my car not for its looks but for the way it runs anyways

It does need some TLC as all these high speeds run do a # on the paint

Awesome car, are you usually down on the south shore? I'm pretty sure I saw a gtr that looks similar to yours.

If you don't mind, let me know when you have a car meet, I would love to come by and check this thing out first hand.

Thanks

not really a fan of the ducktail-ish lip... HAVE FUN
i took it off just for a different look.. Prob helps my trap speed 1-2 MPH

A 1.48 60ft is prob 0-60 in around 2.5ish.

Its a crazy feeling to launch the car and have to shift to second INSTANTLY

less then 6 sec the car does 0-130....

Car is built and tuned by Sean Ivey @ iveytune in NJ

I had a GT3076 setup prior and never drove a stock one so i can only compare my current setup which is a hybrid turbo to my GT3076s

Spool is alil slower (arounf 200rpms less) but makes much more power all throughout the powerband. Full boost is around 4300rpms. Its really not bad IMO but it wouldnt be a good setup for a road course. Its good for driving and works great in 1/4 and roll racing

We have a boost of the line setup (2step LC) with Cobb. Without that this car would not launch.. it would bog bad

Next is getting the car to brake boost for highway rolls

Stock gear box with all dodson parts

Promax clutch
1-6 straight cut gears
pumps, seals, clips all upgraded

my redline is 7500rpm. we can push it but we chose to keep it there for reliability as this is not a stroker motor

at 33psi car makes over 1100Awhp / 850awtq

most i have currently pushed it is 38 psi. I know what it makes but i like to keep it under wraps.. U never know who is reading these threads

@ 38psi car traps 165

To go out and say, the car makes 1xxx/9xx, is like giving other shops a base off of what they need to beat us

Ill put it to you this way

a GTR that makes 1090whp/900tq traps 156-158 in the 1/4

My old setup made 980/870tq and traped 153-155

100hp picked up 3-5 mph give or take. Trap speed is directly related to HP baring all things similar (track location/ DA / Ect) All my traps i reference have been at the same track with all similar DA

I trap 165

3.5?!! That's nearly a UGR TT Gallardo!! You don't have a car anymore, you have a twin turbo time machine
