He'd be spewing! the amount he spent on the purchase price would have been more than a VR4 and double that with those mods!

Was traction the issue?

Not really, he had a pretty good launch. There was a little tyre squeal from him as we both launched at about 3-3.5k, but that was it.

I was playing it safe with the launch as I always get a bit worried about breaking something...even though I know it'll be safe at 4.5k where I should be launching it at. I think it's because I can't afford a new clutch yet lol!!

I can't wait till I have 200kw atw!!

Paul I think there was a bit of tyre squeal (only a very small bit) on each gear change from the magna, well 1st 2nd maybe 3rd not sure.
I was right behind you both. :)

Also you slowed down first for the merge and you were still next to him.

Hey Paul, good going mate!! Were you running just the stock boost?

Just think with cheapness of aftermarket parts like FMIC and hard piping, and now this 3" dump pipe system, you'll be kickin' his butt at a fraction of the $$$ he spent!!:D

Yeah sure was :) The only performance mod my car has at the moment is the HKS super drager muffler and mandrel bent cat back exhaust.

I'm saving already for those parts ;) haha!!

Thats sweet, So far in 100% stock trim I have done in an R32 Skyline and a JZA70 Supra that I dont know but it was a manual with fat (phat) exhaust. The main thing is I won with no stall up :)

I had a rolling start in 2nd with a s15 siliva, seemed like an easy win. I'm guessing we were both stock, I know mine is.
