Johnny (driver and owner) is my landlord and I found myself with a lot of free time after being fired from my position as general manager of blue streak electronics.

I used to come in and give him my rent and look at the car as it was being fleshed out and made a few observations and suggestions that got incorporated into the car such as the boxes on the rear and the super secret implementation of the boost per gear system that allowed the car to hook up.

Even so, it was soft launched and I don't think the 600 shot of nitrous was even used more than maybe a touch in top gear since it can break the tires free at 170mph at full boost.

Next time the "torque management system" (read...traction control) may be used but the car is only on it's second time driven in competition and it has at least 15mph left as it sits now.

We were a little worried how the aero would work out at speeds no other gt has been to but it tracked straight. We'll have to reduce the data on the ride height and crunch some numbers to get an idea of downforce/lift....at various speeds.

The splitter came off at 200 in the october competition and much gnashing of teeth commenced the guys tried to figure how to make it stay on until I said "just take it off".....So....off it stays since it did little more than drag the ground and funnel air under the front end anyway.

This is just the beginning of development of this car so much more should be expected of this street car with full interior, working a/c, and entertainment system.

I wonder how a big horsepower 928gts with a big diffuser would do?

"Johnny (driver and owner) is my landlord and I found myself with a lot of free time after being fired from my position as general manager of blue streak electronics."

This is off topic but in the old days before electronic ignition the best made ignition points that did not float at high rpms you could buy for a bosch distributor were american made "Blue Streak" points.
I used them in 6 cylinder BMW engines with the small diameter euro distributor that was the same size as a 1970 911 distrbutor.

By the late seventies Bosch ignition points were not made in Germany anymore and were cheaply made with a low tension spring which would let the points float if you liked to drive over 5500rpm.
It was as if all the bosch made points made from the late seventies on were made to volkswagon bug specs.

I have the part number for the excellent beefier better made, high rpm blue streak points for that distributor still.

I eventually took the points out and installed the pertronix magnetic pickup upgrade and with MSD digital 6 CDI.

When I worked at electrodyne in the 80s, we still had a pretty good selection of the above mentioned points but you had to be careful with grease choice or you would be chasing the point gap as it closed up because of rubbing block wear.
