congrats to gun16 running a 12.87 @ 110.87 mph in the ol dato

Cheers mate, for having never raced before and it being such a stinking hot day im pretty chuffed.

Those 205 Falken ZE326's and 17's are great for being a pussy off the line

My best mph was 114 so all in all im really happy with how the car went

Lol you would think so wouldnt you.

It was a white 95 180sx with the plates "MAN UP" ...... It was the slowest run of the day and my PB so go figure, it supposedly blew a cooler pipe... dont they all dont they all

Below is a link to the video, im on there 3 times, you can see how soft I was launching and how hard NIS.016 launches

Hi Derek

Long time no hear from.

I dont see anyoneone rushing to respond to you. Unfortunately people dont post here like they used to. Its a real shame.

Anyways. No im not sure where your car has gone. Last i heard of this car was when someone left something heavy in the boot and somehow it dented the back quarter panel from the inside and you could see the dent from the outside. Maybe they turned hard and it slid around in the boot..

The guy was trying to sell it like that from memory. It was quite some time ago now.

Regards

Jason
