    His car is completely broken in, otherwise we wouldn't have raced.

    I'll go at him from a roll next weekend and see what happens.

    tsk tsk. wasn't his mom's Z a auto tranny? how could you? jk. I love the WRX. Was admiring a blue on at etown all sunday. it was running mid 12s.

    the Z and WRX stock is a drivers race. Add some rain/snow then its no race at all.

    I have turbo envy, for now...we are working on a turbo setup for late 2003.

    This is my 1st post here so i hope i am welcome. I am the cofounder of Importlife.com. We are producing dvd 3 for fall release and I may call upon 2-3 members here to join our production to film 25 cars caravan from tristate nyc to HIN orlando in June.

    But here are my time slips from this past Sunday. and some pics.

    Now I install the single fogger wet NOS kit and GHL exhaust and do it all over again.

    Welcome to the forum. I love the looks of the new Z, very clean car. Was your car stock when you ran those times....not bad. Keep us posted on your progress w/ nitrous and your turbo setup.

    The only perf mods i had were the Toyo Proxes on 19" 3 piece wheels. I wanted to see how the car ran with stock specs and a heavier custom body kit with 19s. I was happy with my results cuz i expected the 19s to hurt me.

    I will track the car and have time slips for GHL Exhaust, then GHL + NOS single fogger wet kit at 75shot.

    Next run will be May 3-4 at NHRA Spring Nationals.

    Not at all. I think they were just shocked with the exterior. But I was spanked by a late model civic with turbo. That guy ran a 12.5 @ 114mph!!! And the WRX were getting great times all day long. Damn you AWD.

    But i got a lot of love from everyone. This was my 1st time out on a track. I think if i were on my stock 18" Rays Wheels, i could have done sub 14 times easily. My Fiberglass body kit all the way around isnt helping the issue either. But I like to see how my car performs with all my junk in the car so i know how it runs on the street too.

    Your only perf. mod with a 12.45 on that heavy of a car was tires?

    And his mommy's car wasn't an auto either.

    OH no, the civic that spanked me did the 12.5 @ 115mph! My best time was 14.2 @ 100.01mph.

    Thanks for the welcome.
