i guess its because i have no turbo lag to deal with, hence why i destroyed the G35 skyline off the tree... damned turbos always spoil my wins!!!

Koose-
Yeah, I was very impressed with the terminal speed for such a small turbo, thats more than a Audi R8 V10!
I was pretty sure before I started I could push more performance from the tiny little turbo than most say is possible, and im pleased to say the terminal speeds seem to say I was right.
The 1/4mile could be a lot better, as that was still a very slow 2sec 60ft, and very slow gear changes to save the box, and certainly not full throttle shifts. Would be mid or even low 11s with a 1.6 60ft and fast gearchanges, hell, with a serious drag 60ft time and a dog box it would probably see 10s, which is comedy really on a little T04E on a rotary, lol.

Yeah, no its good stuff dude.

Are you Jonjos mate Stav ?

Also, is the FC mainly a drift car for you? Or just an all round fun machine ?

Mizzi? If so, yeah, small world!
 
And although it was built in Japan as a pro drift car, to be competitive in drifting the setup needs to be pretty much how a grip/time attack car would be, so its good for either, though not exactly setup for launching too great.
I use it as a general fun car, limiting myself to it being good at just one thing means I wouldnt get much use out of it, so its done loads of drift days, a sprint event, drag runs, and loads of road use.

Took are EGI to Shoreham Runway and it was a 1km runway including the braking distance.
0-60 in 8.4
0-100 in 23.9
Not bad considering it is a 23 year old car I think
And we also got the best tyre screeching :Thumbs-up
