It isn't specific to just the subforum xi suspension. It's the single turbo xi and suspension issue. It definitely has gotten off track but it was partially due to some people feeling the need to correct every single statement.

Now back on track, the single turbo xi.

I've been practicing my 60-130 technique with the new clutch and power level, looking for a decent location that doesn't take hours to get to, and have been enjoying the car the few chances I get to open it up and stretch its legs or throw it around the twisty roads in the hills. I'll take requests for video you want to see or driving impressions, but still need to work with Shiv and FFTEC to get NLS enabled and make sure we are set for better gas before chasing any 60-130 records

Not too much launching so the TC limits aren't being pushed, and not nearly as much time spent in the car as I would like due to work and family commitments. I'm hoping to get some more runs in this weekend or possibly one of these evenings

I would love to see a video of a rolling start or going from a dig even without a launch. I'm just curious to see how well this thing grips with awd in 1st and 2nd gear and then how hard it pulls in the higher gears

If you are looking to drive on Sunday let me know for a local meet. Might have a gtr buddy up for a drive.

Plus I'd like to get upsold on a bigger turbo(s)

Best place in the bay area to do any type of tuning or test runs is in Oakland. Wide open, lite up all night like a football field, cops do not care, and there are no shortages of people stopping by for street racing which makes for fun spectating. Pm me, if you want more details on location etc.

You're talking about the Oakland Speedway? It's slightly illegal. The local news ran a feature on it but they didn't include date, time, or any good info. They just said 'street racing is bad, MMMkay?'

if by slightly illegal you mean cops watching the street races, and sitting at stop signs as I blow through them at 130 doing 4th gear pulls. Then yes I guess that's slightly illegal...

Did the tow truck pull your car from the control arms? Not sure if it is from the picture but if it is I would be very careful they tend to bend when pulled like that.

Dave -

They have began tolerating the racing, as it is finally somewhat recognized as being "out of the way/safe". Police have began shutting the street down to regular traffic to attempt to keep the racing, which will never stop, more safe.

So yes, it is actually, slowly, becoming 'legal'
