Silver BNR34 is built in Japan by Duke Racing. Twin HKS2530's, 628 rwhp.
11.63 sec his best time so far. But, he is not in my class, GTR's and all
other 4wd cars race in there own group.
My time is 11.89 on quartermile (with reaction, not pure time). Not great
(but still the best in my class) since I launch from 2500-3000 rpm, broke 4
driveshafts when tried more than 5000 rpm. Now I have custom made carbon
driveshaft and waiting for HKS launch control system, but won't have a
chance to test that soon - season is over for me, car is in workshop for
future upgrades. Next year I plan to go in deep 10's. One major problem
though - traction is limited on our driveway - it's concrete, not tarmac.
People from Duke said we're all crazy to drive 11 sec cars on this field.
