Not trying to excuse anything, just wanna give some background of it. We were working on the GTR for the last 3 months and the airstrip was just the first time out for the car. We didn't prepare anything for the event because the car isn't built for drag, we came out because we would like to support the event. That's about it.

Both cars are amazing but your GTR is on another level. Love the center exhaust Ricky!

I wasn't trying to put you guys down or anything. There was just some crazy GT-Rs out there is all.

I knew this and wasn't trying to dog the GTR at all. I was told it was just at SEMA and by the looks of the car (gorgeous btw!!!), it wasn't built for drag racing and more for road racing. I was just pointing out that the M3 is slow, that's all

345s? thats a typo correct?
edit: nvm holy shit just looked at the facebook! I was at buttonwillow with him back in the matte grey days, I had no idea it was the same car. That thing must have retarded grip, is it 345 all around?

Roll racing is nothing like drag racing.
