After the last Waterford Track event... after seeing awesomeness like this..

E36 M3 Racecar





C6R


E46 Racecar


Noble (twin turbo 3.0 duratec V6)



RX-7 w/ LSX Swap




I have been thinking about taking the G and turning it into a track car.. I know being an Infiniti its supposed to be luxury-ish and Stripping it of its interior seems like a waste.. but I dunno. I think having a dedicated track car could be fun as hell. Then again I do want to enjoy it on the streets during summer months. Blah I can't decide

sounds amazing but it would probably be a better idea to pick up another car as a dedicated track car.

all those pictures look amazing by the way.

I used Blizzaks on the SVT and they worked great. sold em to E & T and she used em for a winter now somebody else has em.

I think I'm going to pick up a set of those again for the Jetta when I get it back.

2 fold. Jetta is winter beater / DD / Good fuel milage car. Is also silly low car for looks and stuff and not really performance.

Is also not RWD.. I'm hooked on RWD for high speed hooning now and don't wanna go back lol
