Built in 2006
Built 4G63-T
Big 16g turbo
Burns E85 w/ meth injection
Sprint car steering rack
1" square tube frame chasis
Nos system (no bottle)
Yamaha motorcycle racing shocks/springs
1g DSM drivetrain (axles/brakes/etc)
Line-lock (for burnout)
2 step "launch control" (hole shot, autox start)

I've only had it one day and haven't even driven it yet, but the numbers I was told are as follows:

335hp
~1600lbs
0-60 in 2.8s
60-0 in ~75ft
sustained 1.3LGs

60ft: 1.3s with MT's
1/8th mi: 6.8s @ 104mph

First autox is Sunday before super bowl (Whitehouse airfield, buccanneer region SCCA).
First drag event is in three weeks @ SGMP Cecil, GA.

I have dreams of building my own car like that. Seems pretty nasty.

Is it just me, or is that autocross course nothing but a giant slalom run with a turnaround at the end?

Do you have something you want to sell? this is second random/non-sense post you make in the last 5 minutes that I've read.

Damn that looks like fun.

It has some ghetto-ness in it for sure, but most race cars do

I do actually want to see a real stock car in nascar.


Personally, I think it would look better if it had just the frame... it looks like the atom's retarded cousin. I would spend an extra 1.5k to have the carbon fiber shop make some body panels. I know a guy here in reno that does nothing but it... makes bank. I want his job. He has a full CF bodied Hyabusa.

That's how all of the SCCA autoxes are at Whitehouse, I'm afraid.

Can someone upload the pics so I can see them?
