oh took it to the drags last night

T - 13.711
MPH - 104.52
60ft - 2.241

Name - Matt

Engine - 5.4L
Tyres - 235/40/R18 Nexen N6000
mods: Malwood 'option 3' clutch & coilovers. engine STOCK

Finally got it to launch. still had a bit of axle tramp, but not so bad once we fiddled a bit with the EDFC. very happy. car is stock, not even an air filter or exhaust
including the spare wheel, and a full tank of fuel.




feel free to look but dont stare at it... it looks so ugly being so high :(

haha thats awesome Matt. Nice skid in that first vid. Really love the 1st pic hard under brakes taking the corner. The R34 GTR rims actually look pretty good on it. I bet those rear tyres aren't doing to good after all that haha. Brembos look to pull up the FG very nicely.
