    Great video. You can't always get more. Eventually the happiness over money curve becomes asymptotic at some value of happiness. This goes for many things in life, not just modifying cars.

    happiness = A * logB (money)

    Choose your goals in life wisely. Don't chase the dragon.

    ROFL! exactly what I was thinking hahaha.

    honestly tho, if he didn't go to these events, how many 800-1000hp GTR will you run into.. I haven't run into any GTR's that are heavily modded in NYC, when I even rarely run into them.

    There isn't really anywhere to drive a car like that in NYC. Here in AZ however, a daily commute generally requires nicely paved straight freeway.

    Honestly, you see some of the rarest cars in the world within a weekend of driving around NYC, but I have never met a GTR on a street light or highway that wanted to play around here, non the less a modded one.
    But yea your right, really is no reason to have a car with over 300hp in nyc, roads are $#@!, dips, bumps, holes, and trafficker everywhere.

    My old 335i, I cracked 3 rims, ruined 2 splitters, bottomed out 3-4 times, and couldn't get into a few gas stations from the incline being to aggressive. I can only imagine how these guys drive there lambos and Ferraris around.

    Yea, I remember that guy. He raced @JRCART in the C63 BS. Same thing man, nobody could beat that guy's GTR haha, not even the 1000whp CLK BS. Sick Supra, and a nice guy.

    I didnt see the race against @JRCART but I know he lost to the 1000hp GTR...Both JRCART and the dude with the Supra lost to that GTR...Tough to go up against a car like that...

    And here I am glad to stay in the game with an "almost" stock GTR that day in my car lolol Click here to enlarge

    Cool video, I have taken street cars such as a 91 VW Passat $#@!ed with them until they are basically race cars you have to work on everyday, til you finally get sick of it pull it apart, part it out, and make back about 2 cents on the dollar. It will happen again. It always does.

    I feel like this video was made for me. I haven't done any heavy mods yet, but my plans were getting a little over the top.

    Very good and well put together video thanks for sharing! This should be a must watch for first time tuners, even though I doubt it would change much, still good perspective.

    Good vid! Dude looks like he actually enjoyed the car at every stage though, which is what's important in the end IMHO.
