ZR1 at MSR 1.7 ccw at 70%.MOV
First laps in ZR1 at MSR in Cresson TX, running the 1.7 ccw. My previous
best was in a CLK Black Series at 1:27.6.
Ran 3 laps, 1:36, 1:36 and 1:32.
Then I decided that I was starting to feel a bit too "racy" in my friend's
$120k weekend car and thought it time to turn in while we were both still
smiling. In the final lap, I didn't exceed 75% of what I'd do in my own
He runs it at 1:22 without breaking a sweat. Yes, on "street" tires. I bet
he'd turn 1:16 on Hoosiers.
The "Wow" comment at 22 seconds was because I was holding the brake but
holding the gas at the same time and noticed the RPM's at 2.5k.
The after market heel/toe pedals are a bit close for my fat feet. Noticed
it again when beginning to brake for a heel/toe and the car surged when I
hit both pedals.
The car is magnificent, on track or on the street.

**Black Ops Nissan 350Z**
The National Guard recently sponsored a car built by one of their own for
as a rolling showcase to honor fallen heroes. The Black Ops Nissan 350z is
pimped from inside and out with the best the tuning community has to offer.
This car will be showcased at various Hot Import Nights shows across the
nation. Sgt. Nicholas Ashby has built car in memorial for soldiers who have
died in the past, and the Nissan 350z was built on the idea that our
soldiers are citizens too. This car combines the Spirit of the National
Guard with some extreme sports car performance. There are quite a few
companies that pitched in some expensive parts and accessories to help Boost this ride into the show car
**VQ Engine Modifications**
The VQ engine was put together by Stillen and has been stroked to 4.1
liters thanks to a Crower stroker kit featuring beefier pistons, rods, and
crank. The forced induction set-up was taken care of by the good folks at
turbochargers.com and consists of an
Artisan turbo kit, custom Intercooler piping, and custom ECU
maps. Jim Wolfe supplied a billet Camshaft set and a high duration valve
spring set. Misimoto anted up the necessary parts for cooling including a
350z performance radiator, silicone hose kit, and slimmer high performance
fans. A Stillen Dual Exhaust and
performance oil pan round out the engine mods from Stillen. Shifting force
is handled by an ACT clutch kit featuring a Heavy Duty Pressure Plate and
Performance Street Disc.
**Rollers and Stoppers**
Huge Asanti 20-inch rims fill the gaps in the fender wells. These three
piece wheels measure 9-inches wide in the front and 11-inches wide out
back. The rubber is handled by Hankook tires. AP Racing volunteered their
4-piston front and rear big break kit. BC Suspension makes some of the best
coilovers around and the Black Ops 350z sports the BR kit. Getting the
alignment in order; comes via Stillen once again with Adjustable front and
rear camber arms and toe links.
**Body Kit and Carbon Fiber**
Stillen once again pitched in concerning the body modifications with a
front fascia, front splitter, rear wing, roof wing, rear valance, and
rocker panels. Seibon is the best known company when it comes to carbon
fiber parts and they hooked up the 350z with a sweet hood, OEM style trunk
lid, front and rear fenders, and OEM carbon fiber doors. Custom BASF paint
and art by Cory Saint Clair finish off the exterior mods.
NRG sent the entire parts catalog for the 350z over to be installed on the
Black Ops car. A 300mm Leather Steering Wheel with carbon fiber trim is
attached to a quick release kit. Adjustable seat brackets hold down the 2
Carbon fiber bucket seats. 4-point safety harnesses hold the driver in
place. A titanium handbrake and shift knob round out the interior mods.
Nismo 370z Track Day
My Nismo 370z vs friends 370z
The Track is a 1/8
S2000 at MSR 1.7 ccw with bmw M3 and C6 vette
First time on this track runnin with the Red (advanced) group, so no
grandmas on the track to day. There were only 10 of us on the red group so
traffic was very light. Runnin an AP1 s2k with KWs, sway bars and OEM size
Star Spec street tires, THERE ARE NO POWER MODS OR GEARS. Runnin low 131s
to high 130s but still have some tuning to do on the suspension.
1.:26.77 lap Msr cresson 1.7 ccw
Despite my tires on their last leg I pulled this decent time off. With
fresh rubber I'm sure I could shave more time off still and be cleaner.
