      Just under 125mph, I'm hoping with some more mods I could get up to 130.

      After removing the rear seats the rear came up more, so I felt the need to adjust them the rear. I lowered my KW Club Sports in the back 1" over the weekend and I have 2" risers still in, man these can go low. Pictures coming soon...

      Why did you run your stock wheels at the track? (I have been asked this as if it is a bad idea)

      Pics look good, what other events are you going for this year?

      Very nice man. Always good to see an R on track, especially a CW.

      They're not the lightest but they work fine for now with NT01's.

      I'm taking March off but I'll back @ Streets of Willow on April 30th or May 1st.

      Considering Las Vegas Motor Speedway on April 23rd too...

      I had previously lowered the back to even it out with the front, but haven't had time to take any pics with my Canon. Here's a iPhone pic.

      My RacingBrake 2 piece Rotors should be coming in any day now, woot!

      This might be my favorite .:R yet! Love the balance between performance and style, plus being CW just makes everything that much faster/sexier

      Can't wait to get mine on the track as well

      I got 5mm spacers on the rear and lowered the back about an inch. Lowering the rear really set things off. I'm on vacation this week so I should have time for a new photoshoot.

      Thanks for the props!

      nope, just wanted to poke the rear a bit. I'm now at 40et in the rear. All you need are centering rings for the different bore size and tuner lugs. I think I'm going to convert to studs soon to make switching out to my race wheels easier.

      That would be cool, if Willingford would ever get his car back we could include him too.
