    that looked like fun... I live in texas as well (college station) if you would ever like to have a quick run. That was a pretty cool video, but probably not that indicative of what most z's run. I have two friends here that I have wrx's that are more modified than yours and I usually pull them by the end of the race...I am sure sharkynrk will come in here and elaborate if he sees this b/c he browses this forum as well. Anyways, if you feel like a friendly run and would like to get it on video let me know.

    I'm in Houston and would love to go there!

    350z, do you ever go to TWS? (I'm there almost monthly)

    It is right outside lubbock, tx. I am down for a race but I'm not making a trip down to college station just for that.

    yeah, lubbock is definetly too far...as for the other guy...I go to TWS quite a bit. Next time you are up this way let me know and I can introduce you to some people and you can meet some of my wrx buddies. Maybe we can get some race action as well on tape. Right now I have injen intake and exhaust, xerd long-tube headers that delete the cats, unorthodox crank pulley...I will have my intake mani. and ecu by mid february. As for both of my friends they both have intake, upipe, downpipe, intercooler hoses, pulleys, unichip, mbc, bov, and some suspension braces...we could definetly have some fun.

    Lots of mods on those cars.
    I have no mods on mine, but it's pretty fast stock.

    TWS has a short 'runway' to run on, but I'm really a road race guy more so anyway.

    Thanks for the invite. I am having a Super Bowl party at my house though, so the weekend is shot.

    I'll definitely let you know when we can get up there. My friends and I do group drives all around Brenham and Round Top on the fun country roads.

    I am the guy that owns the z and was wondering why you said "but probably not that indicative of what most z's run". I was completly stock. I dont have near the mods you do. So I think that staying even after the jump is pretty damn good considering the mods he has plus the elevation here in lubbock(3250ft). Im not trying to start a riot or anything.

    Oh and did you install the headers yourself or have a shop do it? Can you really feel a difference with the ur pulley? Did you get all three or just the crank? Later

    I am curious, if you were to do autoX or something involving high speed turns there, would the asphalt there chew your tires up after one day?

    Because there's also an abandoned AFB in CA that held some SCCA competitions and everybody's tires would get chewed up after one or two races. Just wondering if it was the same over there.

    Wow, I have a really difficult time understanding how you can compare your modded 350Z to a stock one that was in the race. Why are people always putting disclaimers on a documented race, like the glory of the 350Z was somehow tarnished because one single stock car lost to a modded WRX? Doesn't make sense to me. I think that vid was a perfect illustration of what it takes mod wise for the Rex to hang with a stock 350Z. Says quite a bit about your car. But I assume you already think very highly of your car judging by your comments
