the extra torque of the d23 would be helpful certainly but with sticky tires you can stay quite a bit higher in the rpm's which make the lack of torque less of an issue as I discovered with my gutless wonder this weekend.

also have determined my car is actually quicker than I thought its just so smooth/quiet that it feels slow. 3rd gear highway pulls it stays within a couple car lengths of the G35

I also discovered how much potential the G35 really has. If I hadn't nabbed the last possible cone on the track on Saturday I would have won my ESP class (against highly modded mustangs). Sunday was a lot more open and powerful course and I lost horrible (but didn't come last). But on a 65-70secon course I got a 69.6 and top of my class was a 64.8. So not having any suspension work and stock size street tires in a class that allows any amount of suspension work and as wide of slicks as you can fit on the car being only 5 seconds down is pretty impressive I'd say.

I would have done better as well with better tires, too much wheel spin and traction loss. Going balls out probably didn't help with those tires lol. Only 4 seconds slower that aku and klod. Faster than that Porsche boxer and 1 second slower than robs 350 whp Evo.

Good enough for me. What did klod and aku think of my first auto x?

If I drive it tomorrow Ill swing over to your shop for lunch. I might be leaving thurs if stuffs doesnt get tuned tonight. Almost finished installing new turbo. Sucks being a perfectionist and super meticulous when im installing shit, makes it take 2-3x as long as it should.

You looked quick and did better than I thought for sure!

where you 4 seconds slower than Aku? because that means 5 seconds slower than the BMW

that kid in the EVO was terribly slow or at least looked like it!
