I am planning on taking my GTR to Bandimere this Wednesday, 8 August 16:30 in case anyone would like to meet there. I want to launch it for the first time and see what it will do.

I might be able to join. Hope to see you there if I can get all my family out of town quickly and safely.

Cool...I have yet to meet another owner. I have been too busy this summer to get out and attempt to meet people.

Have fun and be sure to post your results! :thumbsup:


Will do...my car is stock and I plan on playing with the vehicle settings and different approaches to leaving the line. Curiosity more than anything!

If you're free saturday morning there is a nice cars and coffee that myself and a couple other owners attend.

Always nice to have GT-R's out for a meet :)

I'm debating making this. I don't get off work until 6 is my only issue. There's also a meet this Sunday at the Garlic Knot in Westminster.

The track is available from 4PM until around 9PM. I live in Colorado Springs and always have a harder time meeting up with people in the Denver area due to the hour or more drive. Going to Bandimere on a weekday is usually not possible for me because when I get off work and finally arrive. But I am taking off the afternoon just to head to the track for some fun.

I am also planning on meeting at the Garlic Know on Sunday. I have that day available.

I have seen this post, but I have been waiting for a day that several owners were commited to showing up and I was able to make it. I like to lay in bed on Saturday mornings and it takes a lot to get me out of the house early if you now what I mean!

60 foot = 1.798

Thanks...I have no complaints about the performance of the vehicle.

I am hoping to run it later in the year when the temps are lower and see how much faster it might run.

The only bad part was that there were very few other cars with similar times to race against.

I went last night. This was my best run of the night. It was packed so I didn't want to try anything too drastic and screw up the few chances for a good pass.

Down pipes, midpipe, Etune, and HKS panel filters. I weighed in at 4,000lbs with 3/4 tank of gas. That run I dropped my tire pressures to 24 front and 20 rear, but that was what the MFD read. Nobody near me had a tire pressure gauge.

Not knocking your times at all but that makes the bone stock 13 even more impressive. :thumbsup:

Nice run...best time to get in runs at Bandimere is between 4pm and 6 pm if you can make it. After 6pm, it seems to get more crowded with everyone showing up after work.

One of the guys I raced on the 8th shot this video of the two of us:



Note-he beat me off of the line by leaving a little early. Red Light!

I am planning on going again in late September or early Oct before they shut down. Once we get a little closer, I will post when I am going again. I want to run my 2013 with cooler weather.

Nice. It was also good that he had the camera facing forward so that we could see your run :)

Actually, he was filming himself all evening and when he agreed to race me, I asked him if he could move the camera. He stated that he would not be able to see himself with this angle and I told him that I was going to be in front. He laughed and thought about this for a minute and agreed. He was not used to racing other autos that were faster!
