Omega - 8.66 @175 with clutch slip in 2nd and third, and it did an AWD wheelie. They're estimating a 7.9 @ 180.

OMEGA did indeed just go to the track for some testing. Overall the night went well and we learned a lot about the car and our soon to be released upgrades. We've made some changes that drastically increased traction and as a results we pushed past the limits of the driveline components. We will be testing some new parts from Driveshaft Shop that are needed for these incredible launches. These stronger parts are being made and we should receive them soon. Frank and the guys at DSS are consummate professionals and It's been such a pleasure working with them for nearly a decade. They have been a huge help making stronger parts as we continue to push the envelope on the R35 platform.

In addition to the axles we also found the limits of our well used Promax clutch. During every pass the clutch slip on the 2-3 shift would cause us to hit the rev limiter for an extended period of time and in some cases actually shut the run down. We never got the chance to make a clean pass but despite the clutch slip we still netted an [email protected] with a TON of room for improvement and more power on tap. John shepherd and the boys at Dodson are already working on a solution that will go into place in the very near future so OMEGA can run at full tilt very soon.

On nearly ever pass we were lifting the front tires and we pulled a best 60 foot time of 1.36 seconds! ....OMEGA has traction now

We will keep everyone posted as OMEGA gets a driveline update. Thanks to OMEGA and the people and sponsors behind it as we push this platform further. I see BIG things in the future for the R35

It's hard to believe that a piece of **** like the Z33 and V35, gave rise to something like this.

^You have to remember that Nissan and Renault used us all as guinea pigs to develop the GTR. I remember a time when the G35 was a GTR test mule.
