Default SZ Z34 TT hits the drag strip......finally!

This past Sunday I finally had the time and energy to take the Z out to the drag strip for Battle of the Imports. We only had time for a couple of runs since we got rained out. The 6 of us competing in the Street Tuner class got to share the prize money in the end. It had been over 5 years since I took to the drag strip so I was a bit rusty; with some more practice I can get this beast into the mid to low 11s.

Running at 12PSI?
How did the car feel during the launch?

Yes, running high 11s psi.

Car feels great out of the hole. Its a little tough to get the 60' down with the power and 18" tires with minimal side walls. I'd feel very accomplished if I can get into the 1.6 60' times.

Based on that trap speed I could see you get into the mid 11s with a few more runs.

What a beast, nice job again on the run! I would love to take a ride in the Z some time, although I feel it would be a slippery slope as boost is mighty addicting.

How is a TT Z for daily driving?
It gets bit trafficy around my area around 11-1 and 5-9

The car feels just as smooth and OEM like, but with power on hand when needed. A good time getting onto the freeway on ramps.
