    I have not been to the shop yet. I have been told its very nice. I was to go there for some Dyno pulls but something came up on my end. It would be nice to see the runs.....maybe the day you guys go for it, I'll take the trip over to Homestead. Few guys from our shop track there in Subi's.

    Van, any chance you and Erik may swap cars just to see how the cars compare with them both being driven by each of you? I know that may be a huge no no being your cars are each new etc, just curious as this would definitely show an accurate view of what the cars can both do.

    I can see the arguments now...
    1) Van is a ringer, he road races a lot
    2) Erik was feeling ill, he just didnt want to let anyone down
    3) Eriks car is modded, Vans car is stock
    etc, etc, etc.

    ^^^ swapping rides is not a bad idea, honestly both guys are straight up and honest. At this point anyone who takes it serious as some kind of real world test or benchmark is missing the point. The guys are going to do a run what you brung type deal. Drive the car they are already accustomed to as fast as they can, then compare data,notes and numbers. Its really a great thing for all car enthusiasts. We already have our alliances so this should not change anyones mind of what car they drive and we also eliminate the bull crap subjective review stuff. Maybe they should also have one ride shotgun with the other so both can give us thoughts of both cars from the co pilot position??
    I for one am just looking forward, if the dummies over on C5 start making excuses for something they will show their true colors. Us here should be focused on just seeing both cars in action by real owners, not some mag wanna be hot shoe, doing one lap and giving us a review as if he owned the car for over a year.....JMO

    Great vid Van... Very smooth lines. Looked for comparable times in stock GTR and this is close! Alegedly, the stock GTRs can't take the heat though...

    How did the car handle the heat at Sebring? Could you run multiple laps without an issue?

    I did multiple sessions. Car was getting hot and pulling timing but I could cool it off and run Time Trial no problem. It handled the heat better than a 2007-2012. Ford did a great job with this cooling system although I am not entirely convinced that it couldn't be improved upon.
