Highly impressive kit, to add to an already Enormously impressive car. 8.9@160+ is just insane.

I think it's all too clinical, no doubt programming in the shift points at the maximum available power points is the fastest way, but the driver is loosing even more involvement.

That's sad, the GT-R is so capable even now with the most cack-handed (or should that be footed) of drivers.

A guy who could not launch a manual car to save his life can pump in 1/4mile times that are just insane and becomes a hero. That car is incredible. How much fun is it though?

GTR's are awesome machines, have been up the 1/4 a few times in a std car which was already pretty quick, although it does suffer from gearbox/clutch overheating issues if repeatedly run....which im sure is addressed when modifying

Heavy bastards too!

Haha. When somebody is shouting bravo at the start, somebody is shouting cheat straight after.

Then again at the end, he doesn't give up, he's still going.
