TWS CCW 1:56.6 - 2009 Nissan GT-R @ Texas World Speedway 2.9 mile CCW March 15, 2009
In my Nissan GT-R on March 15 2009. I moved up to the Yellow group a month
earlier but imo only because the car is so darn good. I ran this lap in
1:56.6 on a slightly damp track and as you can see there is a lot of room
for improvement, but a sub 2:00 here is impressive regardless.
I've shed over 20 seconds off my best lap since I first started driving on
a track 6 months ago. I good driver could probably break 1:50 in this car.
Only mods are an HKS USA resonated midpipe and some Ferodo DS2500 brake
pads that replaced the worn OEM ones..
SLEEPER Miata Shocks 600hp Z06! [STREETS]
At our stop in Nashville we hopped into a 600hp Heads/Cam Z06 after a
random Miata asked to street race at a meet, not knowing much about the car
other than the Intercooler we
noticed we went out to see what the car had... The results were crazy!
This thing was SCREAMING down the highway surprising everyone who witnessed
the race. Returning back to the meet we all found out exactly why this car
was so damn FAST!
The 5.3L LSx under the hood Boosted
by a rear mount 78mm turbo puts down mid
600whp on LOW Boost, the car was
turned up as much as it could be without completely blowing off the
non-radial 225 (narrow) STREET TIRES (around 700whp) equipped with a 4L80
transmission, once this street beast spools you better hold on!!!
Can't wait to see this car again in the future.

Best track session of the day. My car, driven by my brother. Lap times are
2:05:47, 2:07:xx, 2:06:xx
Day one was a bust with balding rear tires and rain. But day two turned out
to be beautiful. Started to rebuild my confidence again so the lap times
aren't that great. By the end of the day I had just broken into the sub
2:15:xx. Fast lap of the weekend set by tanman311 at ~2.05.47.
V8 Miata on Targa Newfoundland - Garnish stage
Ride along with the Targa Miata crew on one of the classic Targa
Newfoundland stages in 2011. Garnish has a bit of everything - high speed
through the woods, tight little town streets, smooth pavement, rough
pavement - it's a real workout for the car and the crew. You can hear the
100 mph wheelspin right near the beginning of the stage. The team was
leading the Open Division of the race at this point.
The car is powered by a modified L33 V8 engine, making between 350 and 400
hp and a 6-speed transmission. The conversion was done using parts from
V8Roadsters, as are all the V8 conversions from Flyin' Miata. Suspension is
the FM AFCO setup, working hard in this stage. It was built and driven by
Keith Tanner and navigated by Janel Tanner.

Miata's V8 conversions, see http://www.flyinmiata.com/v8

CVAR Vintage Racing School at the Texas World Speedway... Staging, and then
following my friend and fellow student Greg (#118) around, and then a few
practice starts... Watch the track in front of me for all the skid marks
from locked brakes going off the track... Shot with a wide angel GoPro so
things appear further away than they actually are...
