How are your lights now that they're blacked out? Still good at night? Wanna do this mod possibly. Really wish i could find a 03+ front bumper too so i could fit a lip on it.
You gotta do the lights they change the entire car. It was a great show too bad you missed it. I will maybe be talking to Speedriven about doing a BBQ and Cruise. If that pans out you have to make it out for sure.

Damn gorgeous car...

LoL nice recent runs Matt. I'm just looking for a 10.97 pass to get the stock turbo 600 record. I'm a lot of work away from a 10.74 pass I wish I had a 65 AMG.

New update guys

Dropping the car off at Speedriven today after work, not sure if it will be ready tomorrow but if it is chances are I will be making some runs this weekend at the track. I will keep you updated tomorrow. Weather here is getting cooler so it might be a good chance to see what this thing can do once tuned.
I have moved up North just recently so now I'm only about a 15 min drive from the track, no excuses not to go and run

Just an update picked up the car this past Friday looks like I had a boost leak, Im going back to the track this week or this coming weekend. Weather kinda sucks out here now but soon to be out there. I wanted to go this weekend but with the new house and all the construction going on I can barely even have time to get some sleep.

Did Marcin happen to mention where the leak was? Good luck on your next outing. Once the power stops dropping off after the 1/8th you're in for some 10's.

As these V12 tt furnaces age, boost leaks become very common.. I had the entire Main OEM boost line under IC's replaced due to cracks & failing rubber joints due to the extreme hellish heat these things give off..

Yes, the leak was on the intercooler seals going into the turbos. Both sides were giving out at higher boost.

I have to go over the entire car in the near future. I might be going the big boy route with the car with bigger turbos and built trans, but time will tell on whats next. First I have to accomplish some goals that I have set

Along with everyone else, I'm hoping to see this car run well for you in your quest to a 10 second slip. You have all the necessary hardware, hopefully the software is sorted, the driver is ready and the weather is on your side!!! Enjoy yourself, have fun and good luck!

You guys don't want to know how I did trust me. But lets play a game and see who can get the closest time.

The track sucked big time no prep at all I did a good burnout but after 2 runs and 3 hour wait because of an event happening that night I decided to call it a day

My best 60ft out of the 2 runs was a 1.9 60ft. My MPH went up to 124 so what do you guys think my time was?

Im going back out this weekend to try to get my 60ft down, if I can get it to 1.6 again and stay with my MPH I'm gonna be looking at possibly a good run.

11.71 is my guess... do we get a prize for being the closest??? On another note, get a LSD it becomes a power adder when you get to use the power you already have.

if the 60 ft goes down so does the mph . takes adding more power and traction to lower the 60 ft AND raise the mph
