    Disclaimer (warning!!:D), any NSX drivers that overtake me down to 130R with your super turbo boost top speed advantage - we're going two wide! So take a deep breath!:lol:

    Nah* really looking forward to racing with you guys later, I'm dreading the first couple of laps until I can get a little gap to the car behind because us in the GT-Rs do have a straight line disadvantage, but judging by a couple of reports we maybe have a fuel and tyre advantage (and are just as strong overall around the lap in my opinion). Should be a good and fun race

    *when I say "nah", I don't mean it! Two wide, flat out, 130R, First Turn, and even Degner 1 if it's called for... (maybe not Degner 1 - that's asking for trouble!)

    I'm not so sure. Didin't @Adam Barber change the BoP? I don't recall what it was, but power for the NSX is now less than 100%

    It's at 99% power now, so not a big change but should bring everyone closer together.

    It is closer - but it was a 6-7mph top speed advantage without a tow. Now it's about 4-5mph

    The lap times are very close now so there's still a chance

    With Gr. 2 at Suzuka, there's always a chance that I might build a sand castle. :lol:

    I've done that a few times in practice, Suzuka doesn't let you take the proverbial with track limits either way

    Yeah I know, there's nothing in it over a lap in my opinion, the GT-R is a demon around the corners. Trying to balance things out too much - especially over one lap - just goes down a never ending rabbit hole. I was actually fine with the NSX staying at 100% power. You just have the knowledge that you have to get the job done in an unconventional way!

    Jumping on for a quick run now if anyone wants to join me

    You will have to stop at least once for fuel, maybe try an undercut

    I just had a look at the time.. for some reason I forgot it was Pom time, not 'merican. Luckily it's late enough to be at the more civilised time of 7:30am and not friggin 4:45am!

    I would be fearful of it falling apart or failing if it was an RC kit I had built, given my history of building RC cars :lol:. That said I've always been a Yokomo guy, so no experience of Tamiya kits for me.

    If there are no more reserves available, may I switch back to Nissan and take @NoStopN's place? That way, we can ensure that each manufacturer has five cars running at the start.

    Will keep the number '92'.

    Not a problem; just finished tweaking the livery I already started for the GT-R when I was a reserve.

    So did I.

    If it helps @SRT DK Racing, I'd be happy to stick with Honda and let him have the last Nissan slot. DK, do you have a GT-R livery ready?
