    The Roush cars are full production spec... 145mph speed governor and all. Even still today at Barber Billy turned a 1:39 lap with it... pretty cool cars.

    The improper hose clamp thing on Catesby's car was installer error.. It seems Jose (Catesby's Co-Driver) has got it worked out for now.

    I think if he had a decent chassis setup on his GTR and proper track prep he would have been right there battling it out with us all week.

    So what sort of rules is the GTR complying to?
  3. The only rule of OneLap is that you have to use a 140tw tire or higher.

    Its amazing how just a tire can put someone on a very even playing field.

    800hp isn't really an advantage on street tires :)

    Poor Catesby.......more mechanical issues. His luck just isn't with him this year. Feel really bad for the dude as he seems to be one heck of a driver.

    I wonder if Catesby will be driving a Top Speed prepped car next year?

    What's Catesby's relationship with Forged? Friends with Sharif/Forged Performance or is he just a hired driver?
  8. He is just a paying customer.

    FYI don't confuse that car with Sharif's shop car....they are not one and the same. It's Catesby's own car.

    Looks like Topspeed just sealed the overall win. If session 2 is indeed a P1 then TS can forfeit tomorrows skid pad and still win.

    Now that's pure DOMINATION.

    Sad to hear Catesby had another mechanical issue....this is definately a bad year for them. This morning it looks like the intake fell off according to Catesby's FB post.

    Good job on the win. Hope you get a new trophy as the shitty UUC trophy just sucks. corsa one was awesome looking. UUC never ceases to fail.

    Great job!

    Planning on trying for a three-peat?

    Of course, sounds like multiple entries from our camp next year. I'm currently not at liberty to discuss what we are taking but they will be fast.
  13. Release:

    Doug Wilks & Leh Keen clenched the OneLap title this weekend in South Bend. Team TopSpeed dominated the event once again, sweeping all of the OLOA Road Courses! Being 500 points in the lead by the dry skid pad event the guys decided to have a little fun. Below is a video of Leh doing RWD drifts in the R35 GT-R after Doug removed the front drive shaft.

    I wanna say a big thanks to all of our sponsors:

    Cobb Tuning

    I will be posting more videos and pictures as I edit them throughout the week.

    Congratulations to Doug and the rest of the crew. Great work guys!

    I'd like to see if I can't get you guys in a Golf R for next year with my hook up.

    We have a couple of things in the works for the shop for next year but we would be very interested in running a Golf R.

    Give me a call at the shop and Ill see if we can get a media package together for you.

    Something is wrong with me.....I test drove a 2010 Red GT-R and a 2006 S2K last week. I had more fun driving the S2K. Don't get me wrong the GT-R was sick but it didn't give me that driver's car feel.

    It pretty much changed my mind about getting myself a GT-R which is a shame because I was very in the market for one.

    So you liked the $10K car more than the $100K car?

    Yup.....prolly had to do with the top down in the hot Florida sun and the wind blowing in my hair. The GT-R was FAST but so smooth and refined. But all the while felt huge (which it is a heavy car and felt like it to me in stock form).
