Many of you have become familiar with Alex Christmas car over the years. Her and her husband, Coy, are some of the best friends and clients that we have here at TSM. Over the years her car has graduated to many different levels, however one thing remained the common theme…. This is a STREET/RACE car not a race car.

 

I remember a little over a year ago finishing Alex’s almost 2000hp build and getting a call. “Ok thanks we will be flying into Atlanta to drive it home to Wisconsin this weekend” …..WHAT???

 

If you think that is a joke or even a slight exaggeration think again! At levels from 1200-2000hp Alex and her husband Coy have driven their TopSpeed built cars all over the country racing them!  I can’t say they were as comfortable as factory cars, but we installed upgraded stereo systems, plush interior panels with alcantara, and made sure the AC/heat always worked.

 

Well things have now finally changed. After seeing the race car competition at the GT-R World Cup a couple weekends ago the decision was made. Let’s make this thing a race car! Well…Coy made that decision while I gulped down another drink trying to figure out how in the heck I was going to take a full weight GT-R and turn it in to a gutted race car in 3 weeks!!!!

 

4 weeks until we load for TX!!!!  Here we go!

So we haven't had much time for me to get on here and update.  We are taking 12 cars to TX2K and as of today 1 of them is ready for the truck.   :headshake:

But I wanted to share some pictures of how Alex's car sits today... 4 days before we load. 

I'm actually feeling really good as  much as the car doesn't look done.  Most all of this "pesky" tasks that take an unknown amount of time are done.. now its just put it together.   BUT there is a LOT of work left.

I'll update this thread as much as I can.

And don't forget the money!!! :)

 

What steering wheel is that, and what do the red and green buttons do?  I would guess one is nitrous, but not sure.

 

Cicio has more than a lot of work to get done in that short a time!

One of the buttons is line lock and the other is the chute. 

 

No nitrous on the car.  I'm not against it but for right now we haven't run out of power on the setup so no need to add another aspect to it right now.  Plus it isn't allowed in competition at TX2K

Hell yea, wouldn't be TX2K without a good thrash leading up to the event.

 

 

Back when I built my procharged vette before TX2k13 I towed it down and finished it in the Omni parking lot, lol.   Ended up having an awesome weekend with That Racing Channel riding along and tons of great races before the highway stuff seemed to die out

 

 

*edit*

I forgot, Brian Spachman makes a cameo at 5:20 in his Class 2 winning GTR  :)
