WHEW!!!!

That's what happens when a big company has money, hook ups, and all kinds of stuff to back it up, ha.
That's one nice *** GTR.
Those tires are buck nasty! Serious tires, haha.

Warranty is definitely voided.

Looks like one of those top notch race cars seen in JGTC or the Rolex Sports Car Series race cars.

looks like an awesome project! Just out of curiosity how much does a build like this cost? and how much does a build like your 1000whp gtr cost? For future reference

Does the owner have enough cash to drop money on lightweight hardware? (nuts & bolts)

I assume this car will have a moly cage that is TIG welded?

Looks great! I agree with Josh...go make some sushi!

Justin has been burning the midnight oil on the cage for this car. Really taking his time to make sure how tight it is to the chassis. When its all said and done it will rival the best of them

Very nice cage so far. Do you guys use Bend Tech software or is it just measuring tape and eying it?

I don't think you mentioned it, but HOW WIDE ARE THOSE TIRES???!?!?

Have to be 335 or bigger. That's insane.
