VQ Sentra Wins Global Time Attack

Some of you remember us (www.2j-racing.com), well we are still at it with our VQ sentra. This weekend we took home a win in Global Time Attack, limited FWD class and set a new record. And we did it on Ventus TD tires.

Enjoy the video

I was actually @ Rd Atlanta this wknd. Stayed the whole day for the most part. That B15 was/is sweet to watch going around that track, not to mention how smooth it sounds!! I was also laughing everytime the announcer kept saying "That Sentra actually has a Maxima engine" Lol. Anyway, Great job. Keep @ it.

Wow Joe, that video was very impressive! Nice save at the beginning. Why the Ventus tires though? What do you have in store next?

Don't mean to go off topic here but what do you have done to the transmission in that car? Just a stock 6mt?

Its just a stock tranny, stock axles.. nothing special. We had to run the Ventus street tires to remain in "limited" class. Hoosiers would put us in Unlimited class.

I was told the announcer had to keep qualifying that the Sentra had a maxima motor. That's funny. With so many hondas, mitsus and other makes out there, they didnt know what to think about the little Nissan.

Our car really isnt anything special. We custom make the BC coilovers, most of ya'll know about our panhard rods for the maxima/sentra. And our motor is an 02 Maxima motor with C8s and 11-1 pistons. Thats pretty much it.

Next year, I'd like a VQ-T with 500whp. In a Sentra.

Nice work!

I am still loving the front splitter and panhard rod swap on my car. In the future I might try running at this event in the street FWD class when they are at NJMP.

You mean this sort of event isn't just confined to Road Atlanta?? If something like this happens at NJMP, let me know, cause I'm in!

Check their website, they have events all over the country. The NJMP event is in a few months. I can't do much track stuff this year due to work obligations and sheer laziness on my part.

But I am wondering about the panhard swap if it is street FWD legal, rule book says no relocating suspension pivot points more than 1" from the factory location in the street class. The suspension pivot point used for the SRL goes from above the beam to below the beam with the panhard swap and that is a bit more than an inch.

Great racing and video footage....I didn't even notice the track listed in the vid title but recognized it from playing Forza (original xbox version) over the last week lol. You really gave that high powered vette some fits, excellent and very controlled driving!

Good job!
What other cars were in your class? I know on the west coast it pretty competitive, usually Integras or something like that in the front.

That is the Fwing Scion driven by Chris Rado. It is FWD so they went with the crazy front wing setup to add downforce to the driving wheels.

The GST Motosports Subaru Impreza L? It is an all black car with some nasty aero. Looks weird but it had the fastest laptime of the day at Road Atlanta and has been placing first for most of the 2012 season.

The unlimited class has almost no rules on aero development, these production based cars need maximum downforce for a couple of all out laps. Huge downforce isn't designed into production based vehicles, so they will look odd compared to the normal race cars we see. As most sanctioned series races have strict rules on aerodynamic setups.

Speaking of weird setups...

http://www.motoiq.com/magazine_artic...vo-part-2.aspx

It is said this car develops around 5000 pounds of downforce @ 150 MPH...
