    Quite a unique setup to say the least... Nitrous + CVT.
    What sort of track duty does it see? Drag? Road race? etc?
    Curious about your times if you're drag racing.

    Welcome bud. How much torque to the wheels?

    Hello all... To answer everyone's questions... Yes it is a CVT. I purposely selected it over a traditional manual for various reasons... Mainly do to the fact that there is a lot of stop and go traffic here where I live... Coupled with the fact that I have a cervical fusion (C1-C5)... Thank God that I now have excellent peripheral vision to compensate for the limited range of motion in my neck... I do realize that the CVT doesn't do too well with elevated torque levels beyond 290-300... But then again this is not my daily driver. I purchased it new back in May of last year (2016)... I don't drive it much. Currently it has 4200 miles on it. Since my purchase, I've gradually added a few things to it. With regards to the nitrous oxide kit, it's a dedicated intercooler chiller. I had it laying around when I sold my 5th gen. Prelude. I placed it on the car to combat heat soak during the summer months and due to our stock intercooler's inefficiency. As for tracking my car, that's my plan... But only when I finish adding the remaining items on my list. It should be completed by the summer... Thanks guys for stopping by.

    Dope man dope man dope man. Good idea using it as an intercooler chiller. Looks awesome. Probably would get pulled over all the time if you drove daily with it though.

    War Eagle War!

    I actually went to college in New Hampshire . . . but I have a friend who went to Auburn which I understand is a rival to Alabama.

    Hey Brass Knuckles... Both the headlights and tail lights are wrapped with smoke vinyl wrap followed by a clear bra overlay. The headlights also have the Subispeed carbon fiber eyebrows with a clear bra overlay as well. Thanks for the compliment.
