      Holy crap, Leh Keen can drive.

      This...is how it's done.





      The best part? It looks like he's having a blast. Anyone here who wants to regurgitate the same old "it's not a driver's car" bull**** is welcome to post clips of themselves driving something better than mom's minivan.

      Understatement. I'll be seeing this car a few times this summer. Hopefully I can get a ride or something.

      EDIT: As well as the driver being ridiculous, the car does some crazy stuff to. You cannot pull off 1:28 on in the second video in a Corvette or 911.

      Wow, VIR looks terrifying! So many spots to get it wrong. I can see rear drives getting light over those crests. And blind crests too, I bet that track has seen it's share of offs.

      I remember him from m3post, he was supposed to participate in that CTS-V challenge held by Cadillac several years ago but after they did a background check, he wasn't able to race lol

      He almost looks too relaxed behind the wheel. Nerves or steel. The thing I like most about this car in particular is the exhaust note, does he have an aftermarket exhaust?

      Is he that tall that his knees are positioned like that?

      On a side note: INB4CorvetteVideos.

      Try an AMS Alpha 9 kit. This car isn't near stock. At least it still has an interior.

      420hp increase over stock

      However I cannot see any internal engine work included in the kit. That cannot be right....

      Fair enough. Thats what the car was missing before was a nice exhaust note (for me at least). Stock seemed too sedated.

      He does certainly appear to be getting after it, however I came in here to read more Godzilla haters. I am disappoint.

      Note to Self: Heavily modified car videos are exciting!

      PS I dig the stock GT-R. Got a poster on the wall in the garage.

      I remember 8 years ago the big deal was guys doing 800whp on stock internals with 3.0 liter Supras. You really think that a Nissan can't do 655whp on stock internals with a much larger engine and all the developments that have gone on in engine technology since the Supra came out almost 20 years ago? I can easily believe the GT-R motor can hold 655whp with stock internals.

      I'm not talking about the powerslide, I've done that. It's the way he steered into the turn, he really didn't even set the car up. It's kind of hard to explain.
