Not my first time posting the results of my fun times down the strip, and certainly not going to be my last.

Please see my video below documenting my adventures.

After setting a PB of 14.2 @ 159kph back in October 2017, I decided to take my 2003 V35 back to the Perth Motorplex back in may before they closed up for the winter. The car should have been in great form- freshly serviced, a set of splitfire coilpacks (installed after the car threw a code) and some stainless steel test pipes (shedding 16kg of weight alone). I was gunning for a 14 flat, maybe even a high 13, but alas it was not meant to be.

Despite a higher top speed (160+), I lost 2/100ths of a second and kept running 14.4's all night. It appears the car has picked up in the top end, but the 60ft times suffered. Where I was redlining 3rd previously, I still had an extra 500rpm up my sleeve. The only things to do now would be a tune, and maybe a 3:65 manual diff, so with bonus time coming up at work, that's what I'm planning for. But at least I know there is room for improvement!

Mods as current:

Apexi single 3" exhaust

Stainless straight pipes

Plenum spacer

Injen short ram intake

Grounding wire kit

Splitfire coilpacks

Tein coilovers

Godspeed front/rear swaybars

Factory Rays 19x8/19x8.5 forged rims with Achilles ATR Sport 2 tyres

 

Please have a watch of the video and feel free to leave your thoughts below.
