the worst part is the air suspension because of pot holes, he is still going to track it with air suspension.

LMAO That kid is such a clueless fool.

LOL and @ all the sheep over there 'ing that idiot and 'ing GTM. If that thread is truly reflective of the 370Z community as a whole, the future of the Z34 platform is bleak.

Do you really think that car is going to run? let alone see a track?

I'm just a lurker in FI.. but history seems to tell me that this project will not finish or results will not be posted/proven. Not pointing fingers.. just my opinion.

So much hating on GTM here, and its coming from the same people that attack GTM in every thread.

I'm not defending GTM, they made some mistakes and had a couple of 1000whp dreamer threads (also there are a couple of dreamer threads for other vendors that magically disappeared lately )

To be honest here, I really hate dealing with GTM...their customer service and delivery times are horrible,(in my last engine I spent $600 more and got the Carrillo rods over the GTM rods to avoid that ) but none the less, they make great parts and are the only shop/company that still test/make new things for the HR engine.


peace out

Permabanned huh? Doesn't it suck to be banned even though you are being proven right all along? *cough* *cough* Ask go-fast (if you can).

The thread was dead for a while, but the activity picked up today. Alberto posted over there and it became painfully obvious that they have no clue who he is and know nothing about his firsthand experience with GTM. They just dismissed him as some random troll who is a hater cuz he doesn't have a 370Z.

Most members over there seem to lack any knowledge or historical perspective concerning vendors and the Z33. They seem to be clueless about GTM's past record of stillborn 1000whp hype projects and lack of accomplishment/experience in the 1000+whp realm. They don't seem to think that any of the past vendor FAIL or FI lessons learned on the Z33 platform apply to them with their Z34's. Reality350 was spot on...

To much fanboi -, will do nothing for that community.
I serioulsy doubt any of us would have any luck over there trying to get the truth about GTM 1000whp hype to sink in with the same membership that accepts Scott Bush/Relentless Autosports as a reputable vendor.


BTW... No update or progress posted about the "White Dragon" either.

^RudeG,
You are absolutely correct... They are blinded by hopes and dreams.
-Looks like the thread on the other site was totally purged of all questions.. Quite Pathetic.

considering that the GTR block is much stouter (closed deck) than the VQ block, AMS casts some real doubts on realistic longevity of our NA design over 1000/1000. Although we are a long ways away from 1000 ft-lbs I think.

Yeah, I saw the "cleanup" and AK370Z's gay post. That douchebag only cares about protecting the sponsors who support his site and line his pockets with money. Any truthful dirt posted which threatens his cozy relationship with his sponsors' wallets is considered "off topic".

AK370Z reminds me of how Nic at CiNcity Designs ran his own forum circle jerk style and deleted all negative feedback or posts that jeopardized his collection of money.

I posted some TRUTH in the drag forums of that site. Many peeps who don't even run their 370's started arguing nonsense with me (speaking from neither experience or knowledge), just spewing BS to defend there fellow non drivers. So yesterday I threw a hard post down and now Im banned. LMAO-those guys are blind as fawk, I wont post there again even after the ban.

I would like to see the responses though. Its the unofficial drag time thread if you wanna laugh.

God help these [email protected] if/when they come out to a Mid-A 350Z meet...
