Very nice, your GTR is moving. Is this after you installed the GT800 kit?

My GT800 kit finally went on a customer car when both of our cars were at the workshop, I'm still on stock turbo/engine/gearbox ... I'm even on stock injectors (which are over their limit so not the safest for the track but they survived a total of 3000 track miles for now).
Actual mods are ADV.1 on R888, COBB with TCM, HKS Y-pipe and Spec-R catback, Alcon discs on Carbonetic pads, AMS intercooler, prepeg Carbone intake, HKS fuel pumps, HKS S-SQV, T1R fuel rail. Nothing more.
I got injectors for it but wanted to see how fuel would go by just changing the fuel rails; I'll probably install a set of ID1000 on it this week. I might get the engine built and still not change the turbine system for a few track days. Got also some new rotors and pads to try soon, same for the tires, also got to install the new Whiteline KCA402 and KCA403.

Nice, cuz it looked very fast in the vid coming out of corners. Nice driving!

Are you getting a different turbo kit or going with the GT800 again?

I saw your build thread on a different forum, and i like the mod choices, specially the Diff and the Cosworth pistons and rods. The Dry CF intakes also look very good! Who makes them, size? And are they layed with CF or a full dry CF piece?

I'll probably stick with the GT800... if I don't got crazy and move to an Alpha12+ but I guess GT800 is big enough for a track.
The carbon diff we installed on another car makes it much smoother and give a lot more grip to the front end, we got MonteCarloRally roads here so you feel the diference very quickly.
CF intakes are full dry, prepeg put into a mold (our mold are also prepeg carbon). We still finish them with a laquering so that it looks good but that part doesn't make any other change.


Size is stock size on the MAF part with a biger chamber at the begining of the pipe to use a larger filter. Don't see the point going a ton bigger as everyone uses SpeedDensity and turbine entry are not even close to that size.

Very nice! Car looks fast. Few driving lessons and car control clinics would shave off even more time.
Quite hard to even think about recording a lap time when passing people that are themselves passing people that are themselves... see my point ?
Even when I got that track for "almost" myself for a few laps I admit that I'm far from beeing a pro though
I've been thinking about some driving schools but never had the time yet.
By the way anyone knows if there's a way to do a few laps at Laguna Seca during the week and if they rent little MAZDA for this ? I'm around L.A for a week in 2 weeks and I'd really love to do a few laps on this track !!!

Not sure if you are serious there or what you said.

Ya your car is a LOT faster than the rest of those guys! Ya you definitely need the whole track to yourself or get into some faster run groups so there wont be so much traffic. Usually they require you show proof of instructed driving classes. Either way, looked awesome! Glad to see how fast your car is on the track and not just the drag strip!

Was just saying that even if I'm not a pro I can't get a perfect driving when I got to take care of other cars I pass more than taking care of where I go or when I brake and so on ;) look at the video "GT-R35 battle on Paul Ricard HTTT " at the minute 7:00 far from perfect but a lot better ;)

haha Alpha 12 will be crazy on the circuit! The HKS turbos are fantastic, stick with that. I like the intakes, they look nice and i like the fact that they are pre pregged. Good stuff.

Great video! Wow, the sheer variety on just those few laps. McLaren, Mustangs, Camaro, 240Z, MC Stradale, old Mini, Capri, vintage open-wheeler(?!), F430, GT3. Few people not named Webber, Alonso, or Vettel could say they passed a McLaren this year. Imagine the pace of a 2030 GT-R, passing your car like you were passing them...

As long as I can afford a 2030 GT-R I should be fine being passed ;) … 2030 sounds far far away though.
I'll be 45… I think that is when people start buying NA Corvettes or NA 911 isn't it ? Just kidding.
