Finally got a chance to race a stout ass car. New GTR!!! From a dig!!! Light goes into a sweeping turn then bam wide open tunnel! He had been trying to keep up with me on the highway before we stopped which didnt work well for him. So light turns green and we go kinda short shifted into second around the sweeping turn as I can't corner as well with the drag radials so he was out a car around the bend. Hit it in second get back to even. Third pull about 2-3 cars shift into 4th till about 125 shut down about 4 cars out. Not to bad considering that was all his race not mine. Add another car without that sweeping turn. Would have been worse from a roll!

Got any track times on that thing. I am also the proud owner of a LS2 402ci motor so I know what they can do..

Good kill, those GTRs are hard to beat at similar power levels no matter what. Those damn transmissions+AWD turn the thing into a beast.

Good kill man. It's gotta be hard as hell to find modded cars in Cali to race.

Probably depends on where you are. Also emissions are a big factor where you guys are.

There are sooo many ways around that. lol From Sac to the Bay to LA, plenty H/C, blown, turbo, nitrous, stroker everything. Despite our strict emissions laws Cali has plenty of modded vehicles. Just go to our tracks or street meets, they're there!

Good kill!!!!

I don't know why I don't just go ahead and get a C5 Z06. God I love those cars :drool:

I actually would want a white one though.

No track times yet. Only had it back a couple months now.Will be running it this summer for sure. Have a built diff with 4.10's shipping to my buddies in WA for when I move back up there next week. Being able to hit 115 in third and 160 in 4th with these tall tires and rev limiter is a waste. I never go that fast anyway. I am hoping to make it at least into the 10's this year. Trapping around 130 would be nice too.

Yup always some way to get around it. BUt moving back to WA I wont have to go around anything. Got to love not having to worry about smog laws!

those were only in 01, so good luck man. Also, unless you were going to mod up right away, they are a touch slower than the 02+

great kill ZGLASS and great looking Z06...those C5Z's don't quite get the respect that the C6Z does, and that is sad because the 5's weigh a lot less as well and look terrific...i love Z06's...

Well after I did my Head/cam last year I was thinking about going the C6Z06 route. But Then I had two of my main bearings go out on me. So I ended up doing this 402 build. Now I really don't want to go the C6Z route. Mine has more power by a good bit and more potential to push the power. I know I won't just drop a valve at random and take out the motor either. Going to do the build diff soon and shoot for some nice times at the track this summer NA. Maybe add more to it down the road 150-200 pills.

ZGLASS...you've got more of a set down there then i do, what with trying to stay with him in a turn with DR's out back to boot and all the power under you're foot...shit, to much for me..lololol...again, props to you for doing it all to him, i like GTR's and respect the hell out of them, but wish you had a picture of his face after the race..hahahaha...

Well that's just it I couldn't push it threw the turn with the drag radial. Which is why he got out on me threw the turn. But once it straitened out that was all she wrote. I would have walked a good bit harder without the sweeping turn giving him the advantage in the start to the race. But I do have a pretty good power to weight advantage over them. It's amazing how the technology in those GTR's can make up for the lack of power with shifting so fast and never getting out of boost.

But yea I beat him on the highway as well right before we got to the stop light on the off ramp. He tried to ricer flyby me but i timed it pretty good. Stopped him at my rear bumper and pulled pretty hard at that speed. When He pulled up next to me at the light I got the WTF look. Was some 40ish year old Asain guy. He must have been pissed cause we both new we were going for it on the green LOL. I was just excited to get a good race finally! Nothing like a GTR cutting traffic behind you and blasting up to catch you to get your blood pumping!

I don't think he would worry about his car payments. Hell, some GT-R owners pay cash for their cars.

HITMAN, speaking from experience i assume...lololol...probaly, must be nice though...i remember a guy coming into our dealership and putting a new 'vette on his credit card, and buying another car for his wife...i have nothing against GTR's...love them as much as the next person, just that some people who go out a spend a lot begin getting a big head...let's just say i know of someone like that, that i work with...

Yeah, I doubt too many people are dumb enough to purchase a $60+k used car if they can't afford it. But then again, I've been proven wrong time and time again about general common sense

Ha - this one kid my cousin in TX is friends with went out and bought a brand new $70k z06 a few years back. It now sits outside his apartment as he struggles to pay for the car, his apartment, his student loans, and general expenses. Then he brags about owning a C6Z
