Congratulations to Marc Cruz on his TQ and Jeffrey Lin on his 2nd place finish.
Also Congratulations to Skyline for the new VR12Plus, it is the best match with the new Sirio STI motor, we mesured the speed of all the cars in the back straight and almost everybody was around 55-57mph, exept for Marc who was doing 60mph, running the new Sirio EVO3-STI and the new VR12Plus pipe

I really wish they would come out with a reinforced stinger. The VR12 is strong, but just for a little more strength.

Skyline Racing had a great weekend with the debut of the new VR 12 PLUS pipe. The pipe worked excellent and was used by 6 out of the 12 Sedan A-Main drivers including the TQ set by Marc Cruz. To prove the pipe isn't matched to just one engine brand, the engines being used in the A-Main consisted of 2 OS TZ 12, 1 Sirio EVO III, 1 JP FX 12, 1 Mugen X12, and 1 Rody V12.

i used the pipe with my Rody V12 motor and it was awesome. bottom and mid was excellent as well as the top which doesn't go flat at all even with the very long vegas straightaway. it just kept going and made the motor scream.

another plus is that the pipe seems to be very strong (durability). i hit the boards and got tangled with traffic a number of times during practice on thursday but NO dents or bent stinger. i ended up using the same pipe the whole weekend (4 days of running) and it's still perfect!

hey peter, it's good to know that the pipe works for all kinds of motors out there. i just ordered an OSTZ to try out and to have as a backup motor. i really wanted to get another rody but if i keep spending all kinds of money, i really won't make it to the nationals, so better save

You don't have to spend money for the hotel. Keep your stuff in the car and sit at the poker table every night and just play the blinds. I see people sleeping in their seats in the middle of the game. Nobody will notice you're there to sleep, not to play. I'll bring you tapsilog in the morning and adobo for lunch.
