Hytech R32 GTR finishes 2nd at Night Speed Drag Wars

A pitcure of our GTR launching off the line at Fram Autolite Dragway, Meremere.

The first practise run of the night saw the power steering belt flip 180 degrees on the pulleys, shredding it in the process. The car suffered from worse than usual torque steer off the line, meaning we had to back off the throttle to straighten the car before flooring it again. Other than that the car ran fine on the night only running 20psi on pump gas. We managed to finish 2nd in C1 Class (Turbo 4WD). The car now has a new power steering belt and we should be at the next round in 2 weeks.
