This is very near me.  I would be the slowest GT-R out there, is there a minimum speed and horsepower one should have, because the monsters that I see at most of these events will use me to wipe their butts.

I booked a room a while back thinking I would at least spectate.  I'd like to participate as well and I think I've got the wife talked into participating with me.

I did not know how slow they would accept.  Most of the high horsepower GT-R's would eat me alive, but I might be competitive with the other stock cars out there.

 

That being said, I need to look at my schedule.  This interests me.  The fact that our new member rexshon and audioenvy will be there just prompts me more.  I will look at my schedule.

Would love to see your car out there! I watched your build thread religiously as my car is at Buschurs now.
