Yeah I know I have not been posting on my blog like I should be. Go figure, the CEO of a web design and online marketing company that hasn’t been practicing what he preaches. I guess the entire team has been spending all their time and mine on other people’s work. Maybe that’s best 😉
Anyway here is a picture of one of my new toys. This car is unique actually, it’s a 2012 Nissan 370Z Nismo edition. There are only 500 made each year globally. It’s basically the Nissan Motorsport Division street legal track car. No luxury here folks. That in and of itself is not a big deal but this car is not really L E G A L. This Nismo number 497 is HIGHLY modified and tuned by Forged Performance. Forged is one of the most prestigious race shops in the United States for Nissan. Located in Marietta Georgia.
Other big brand name shops that we work with include Z1 Motorsports, Stillen Racing, Jim Wolf Technology and Nismo of Japan when we get lucky enough to have access $$$.
Once this monster is finished being tuned with Garrett GTX twin turbos, Cosworth block, heads, and way to much to list here it runs at a cool 1,000 WHP. That is one thousand horse power to the rear tires! NOT THE ENGINE BLOCK. For all you gear heads you know what I mean. The parts list on this car would take a huge spread sheet. From the Sparco seats and belts to the full GT3 class track legal hand welded full cage, etc.
Of course we have serious brakes being installed. The factory brakes are GREAT! BUT…we need a lot more. The debate is between Alcons and the new Brembo GTR or full race serious. Either way it’s $15,000 in brakes.
