I'm with you on that one Brenhan. With utmost respect to Mario, HKS have a formidable record with that GT-R of theirs. I've yet to see an event (video, live, whatever) where that HKS GT-R didn;t perform or fell apart on the track.
What sort of power is Marios developing? To be fair, the HKS R33 isnt a road car at all, so unless Mario's is a stripped out drag racer with some serious tuning, both engine and traction and weight etc he hasnt got much chance!!!
vennuth... Mario's specs have a theoretical hp limit of approximately 1,500hp (I'm sure he won't be happy unless he is within 15-20% of this max). The car has been stripped but should still weigh more than the approximate 1,050kgs that the HKS car weighs (with all its carbon fibre panelling).
