Re: Sweet TA/GTA Youtube Video

no problem...once my GTA gets the tranny rebuilt I plan to make some high def videos this summer! No one on youtube besides a few make GTA videos in high def so i'll start a trend. These cars are too nice to be videotaped in low resolution quality, high def for the win!

Re: Sweet TA/GTA Youtube Video

That is a sweet video, I wonder how he got the hood bird wrapped around the hood vents like that? I have 2 HD videos of my GTA on there, but they are slide shows. I want to get an HD camera soon so expect some HD vids of my car as well.

They made a hood bird for our cars. 500.00 option. I know thats not one of them, but I know the 500.00 option worked and didnt hit the vents

Re: Sweet TA/GTA Youtube Video

Our cars, (thirdgens in particular) are actually pretty popular in Japan from what I've seen. They build a lot of autocross and drift cars out of them. There's a few videos on youtube with 3rd gen IROCs and GTAs racing on the Tsukuba circuit.

I can take out a 370Z in my car. The GTR though is in the same class as the Corvette ZR-1. Our GTAs would lose....


...badly

Re: Sweet TA/GTA Youtube Video

Well, keep in mind, my car is not stock. I have a lot of engine upgrades so I can take on a 350Z or a 370Z and believe it or not, thirdgen cars have a weight advantage over the newer cars. A stock GTA would not even be able to take on a stock 2010 V6 Accord, and that's a 4-door family car.

As far as taking on the GTR, the new ZR-1 could definitely take it on with a skilled driver behind the wheel. The Japanese rely too much on technology. That car has more computers than my office and is extremely complicated. A transmission for that car will cost you about $20k if you break it.
