I didn't know Lyfe was still campaigning their car!

Happy he's safe.

 

With all the hype, cool pictures, press releases, etc... I expected this car to really crush the competition. However, it seems that it's been underwhelming "just ok". Am I seeing it wrong?

Nope.

The car barely beat the hks GTR, and if you look at then side by side, one is a gutted all our race car, and the other looks like a lightly modified street car.

That's too bad. :(

 

Though it sounds like a line or coupler probably failed, anyone know what brakes they were running?

I didn't know that.  Why so slow?  are they RWD only?

I hate to be captain obvious, but it's because the Mizuno-san formula is such a well engineered car to begin with.  It takes tons and tons of money and engineering to "fix" what the Nissan team didn't get "perfect" - which isn't much.  HKS, Mine's, Jun, etc. have always stuck to a "what ain't broke don't fix" it attitude.  So they lost, but as pointed out, their car is a lightly modded street car.

 

It's the reason I get to drive to the track in air conditioned comfort, while the trailer queen roll cage brigade used to NEVER beat me, and now just BARELY do.
