Robbie Ward and the guys RIPS have already done a couple of shake downs with their R32 GTR and have ironed out little issues they found (a dodgy fitting for the Nitrous and a faulty crank trigger) but today they are racing at the NZ four and rotary nationals, and did a 7.80 @ 288kph on their very first pass... And have backed it up with a 7.88 at 290kph.

The weather is starting to look a bit dicey, but I will update if any more news happens. Congratulations guys, bloody awesome show... Looks awesome!

I will record the next one, think he might give it a bit more on this one... The 7.7 looked easy, was straight as anything

Check Rips Racing on facebook there are a few video's there but I'll be putting the in car and on car video's on youtube over the next couple of days.

The car ran great, very smooth and consistent 7.7s to 7.8s without pushing particularly hard, looking forward to a getting more grip so we can lay into it some more :)

I'll be very happy if we get even a little closer to the 2 top guns on our small tyres and pump gas.
