Irish Joel took 'Skunk' his recently modded DC Performance GTS across from VOI to Nevada to compete in the Silverstate Shootout, part of the big 'Classic' weekend.

And succesfully competed and won the cup
The Shootout was supposed by a standing start one mile sprint, but was cut to a shorter distance due to 45mph cross winds.

Skunk looks very stealthy

and was totally under-estimated by the other competitors including a japanese team 15 guys strong, running a tweaked 350Z

Not bad for a 900+ bhp road car driven to the event and then driven back to LA,
apprantly averaging around 20mpg on the return journey to !! sweet.

Congrats and well done DC Performance and Joel :bowdown:

This event was a blast for me. Unfortunately severe side winds meant that the highway patrol restricted the event to 1/2 mile. However I did get in one mile run, before the restriction, my first, changing below 5500rpm as a shakedown. From the datalogging we reckon we did about 185 in the mile with more to come, we were pleased with that result at that altitude which really cripples the power output. The 350z was orange, and was beautifully prepared, looked a million dollars......even had a parachute on the back. The Japanese had brought over quite a team with film crew etc.

I'm grateful to DC Performance of LA for the preparation and Chris Jensen for his excellence with the AEM management system. I think we made a good trans continental team !

Also thanks to that famous brummy graphics expert Neil for some excellent signwork ! :thumb:

Ron, you have a pm
