    0/0/0 Car Selection, Paint Selection (Excluding DLC) and Ticket Selection
    Any tradeable Premium or Standard car in the game are available. The other cars when sent will have switches and/or wins but a Restoration Ticket will be applied to bring the mileage back to 0 on any car that has miles.

    DLC paint can be applied to the body and the wheels. Any DLC Paint is available in addition to all "My GT Rare Paints (Mattes, Colorshifts, Chromes)" If a re-painted car is desired please specify body color, rim color and rim type (most stock rims cannot be painted so pick one from GT Auto)

    *******************************************************************************
    Purpose:
    This is to bring more attention to the hidden Autosport within GT known as Drag Racing. There has been very little done to add to this segment of Auto Racing within GT and if we have enough momentum with this maybe others will see why the Drag Racing community wishes to have "trees" and other modifications to the game to help add to our experience. Please share this contest with your friends and help to get the word out.

    I figured some of you may have already tuned this one some. Its not the typical oddball car that Kenny and I have thrown at you all. I think it was you that said you wanted a more common car that is used for drag and I picked this one.

    I actually really own a V6 '09 model in Brilliant Silver Metallic. I love my car. Of course my rims look better than any of the ones on here, I have a custom grille, sequential taillights, lowering springs, shorty antenna, K&N Filter, Flowmaster muffler, Hurst Short Throw Shifter and a few other things too... Of course mine is "Standard" because my windows are tinted :lol:

    Flowmasters and K&N's are nice, I use those on my truck, as well as Thrush, Walker etc.

    Once my car note is paid off in a few years I have plans for an X-Charger for it (SuperCharger). I wish I had the money for that over the K&N but I couldnt afford $5,000 then or even now with my car payment on it. On top of that I need to spend another $1,500 for a new rear axle to support the added power of the supercharger. Of course that will come before the supercharger.

    The good thing is I dont really put any miles on it. I bought it 2 years ago with 12,500 miles and now it has 27,055. Should last me quite a while.

    The K&N is nice and the Flowmaster sounds good... but it has HORRIBLE drone (that vibration that happens with the tone of the exhaust). Again, in hindsight I would rather have got a Borla (I have a single exhaust)... I may go that route if I ever get the time and money to redo my exhaust. I have plans on headers and true dual exhaust on it.

    :lol: yeah... I just pulled it out of my garage as I used it last... yes I was using this in rally... lmao

    Hey, next time I guess I will pay better attention when I grab a car I already have in my garage. Usually I make a new car for the photos but I got lazy today :lol:

    It even has snow or dirt tires on it...

    Edit---

    I cant take the ridicule on the rims/tires anymore :dunce:

    I updated the image :lol:
