149.9 mph today.

Not bad for 4000 ft., stock turbos, tune, mid pipe. Exhaust, 2.75in intakes, on a primarily road course car.

Solved a relatively pertinent equation today.

2009 CBA with above mods = 2015 premium with midpipe and exhaust.

We ran within 6 inches of each other the whole 1/2 mile.

I probably should have introduced myself. Lol

We talked about the diameter differences and I mentioned having a cutout (I think it was you anyway)

Yeah, me, chubby guy with black old 2009. CBA. Everybody has been stellar, except for the lambo that blew up and oiled the track. I know, I know, not REALLY his fault, but damn.

I was 2 cars up in line when that happened. Ran down damn near all my batteries on phone, laptop, cameras etc waiting.

Scenery was awesome

From experience I'm guessing the altitude was robbing 4-5 mph compared to my normal DA

Beautiful car man. Someone said the DA meters were reading 5000 today. Don't know - don't have enough experience on that, but I can say my car is down on power for sure.

I have to say, seeing a wheelchair being pullled behind a big orange GT-R with the dude holding to the rear wing is one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen.

P.S. - Tim I was sporting the GTRHeritage T today, and OMG had the Heritage hat on.  We are spreading the swag dude.

lol - no reason to feel inadequate. My dad was giggling at some of the cars out there going 120 yesterday and I had to remind him we're all in different places doing different things. As long as you're out there having a blast - thats all that matters. I don't often get to school him, so that was entertaining
