Hipo. Quite simply

astonishing.
Now saved on the PC as me screensaver..
Love the wheels too.

One quick Q:
any plans to stop the thing? Still on std brembos and like 3 times stock power? some 6 pots in the pipeline or are you only using for dragging?

great skills.

Thanks for the kind comments, guys. Much appreciated.

Smootster73... The standard brembos will definitely be upgraded at some point down the track. I'm thinking about the F50 front brembo upgrade at the moment. My main issue is that I will be restricted to a 355mm rotor because I plan on drag racing the car. Apparently, 355mm is the largest rotor I can get under a set of 17 inch TE37s. I would have liked a 370mm rotor - for that added safety ;).

I_Romo... English works for me! ;) I'll definitely post up any new developments on the power front but it won't be for a while yet. BTW, try the engine pic again. It works fine for me.

Thanks again for all the feedback. It sure makes it worthwhile.

MDG, I_Romo... if it makes you feell better, you're both right. ;)

dan0h... I'll see what I can get organized. Maybe I'll be able to get some decent pics taken at the upcoming NISMO Festival. Actually, I might ask DCD to take the photos as he's particlularly good at that.

Spool Up ?

First of all, AWESOME car ! ! !

I wanted to ask, at what RPM do those things start to spool up at ?
When do you get full boost ?

Again, Great car . :D :D :D :D :D

Cheers, guys.

Pepsiguru... on pump gas tuning I get about 1 kg/cm2 of boost by 5,750rpms and 1.8 kg/cm2 by 6,500rpms. These numbers are worse case scenarios as my boost controller is set for zero boost spikes - that is, the wastegates start to open earlier than necessary to ensure I never go above preset boost. Having said that, the car is obviously laggy down low.
