New Nissan GT-R Record

December 28th, 2018

Hello race fans and welcome to the Haltech World Cup Finals for another GT-R World Record. Seems like there’s a GT-R record falling every time I go to the dragstrip these days. This time it is the record for elapsed time in the quarter-mile; for a GT-R with the turbocharger in the stock location (not the stock turbo). The pass in question was 7.08-seconds @ 208.23 mph.

With help from Tony Palo (T1 Race Development), this fugly GT-R with no openings in the grille and a matte black finish, is being campaigned by George Dodworth and the Clutch Masters crew from Pittsburgh, PA. With a fully-built racing engine and custom turbocharger setup, the car is capable of producing 3,000hp. Unfortunately, this track is not holding that kind of power (even with all-wheel drive) and I don’t know of many that will. Nevertheless, it’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and be without.
