Default Forged Performance 370Z Race car build first track test...impressions

I am happy to report that we've completed our first weekend test of our 370Z Time Attack car. To say the least, we smashed our expectations for it's first track event, even with a fairly important adjustment that still needs to be made to the front shock travel. We ran a 1:19 lap at Roebling Road on the 3rd lap out in the morning on R888 rubber. That car is absolutely insane in the corners, and the braking power is off the charts. I had an idiot's grin on my face for hours after I climbed out of the car. We had the fastest car at this Porsche club event, and there were plenty of heavy hitters. Many GT3's on slicks, 997TT's, etc..etc.

And still with a bone stock engine and intake. Just the test pipes and exhaust...not even a tune!! It's only get to get much faster from here. We have a lot of work still left to do, but it's good to see the car on track, and running fairly strong.

Here are a few pictures of the car when we received the car in bone stock.








Here is what she is today








Here is some video of her in action!

Stay tuned for more power upgrades, and more tweaking! Also watch out for our Subaru build!

Thanks!

We are really excited to see the times the car made. For a naturally aspirated car and 280whp its smoking! I can't wait to see what happens next!

great selection on the suspension! Can i ask what kind of pressure you guys are running in the suspension and what kind of camber settings you're toying with?

Looks like you guys have one hell of a project in the works! Best of luck with it.

How's the move treating you, Tray?

They are Toyo R888's

We will be attending a track day shortly with her. Thanks for all your support! I will keep you guys updated when we have some cool footage for you all.

It hasn't been dynoed. It will probably make about 275hp. We are wanting to do twin turbo when she is completely dialed it.

Best regards,


Tray

Hasn't seen the dyno just yet, as Tray mentioned. As far as power adders are concerned, we've only installed a test pipe and exhaust. That's it...really that is it.

Adding power is easy, and we're pretty good at that. Dialing in the rest of the chassis is a much bigger challenge and we don't want to be distracted just yet by tons of additional power.

Well it seems to look like you have a great start already. I have a 04 STi the one that Scott tuned in Nov 09, it was an open source tune on the stock ECU. After I pay it off in a couple of months I am going to strip it down and use the car for NASA TT in 2011. But for 2010 I will be getting HPDE out of the way. I already knocked out HPDE 1 in one weekend, back in December. But it will be alot of time and money before I compete, but its what I enjoy.
