2 of the WORLDS FASTEST NISSANS - 6.46 @ 222 mph SCOTT PORTER - VQ35 V6 TWIN TURBO
In the Factory Xtreme final of Jamboree 2012, Scott Porter's Nissan Infinity V6 VQ35 reset it's own world record yesterday with a blisteringly quick 6.46 @ 222 mph and took the win. This is the fastest Nissan powered vehicle in the world and the R35 (on film) of Mark Jacobsen is the fastest RB powered vehicle worldwide. Mark Jacobsen ran 6.63 @ 211 mph off camera to also reset his own world record as seen in a previous DragImportMedia video.
NEW 4WD WORLD RECORD - 7.41 @ 193 MPH - REECE MCGREGOR / HEAT TREATMENTS RACING - 18/5/2013
Reece Mcgregor has today reset his own world record for the quickest 4wd
powered car in the world. The team have been working extremely hard for
many years to break out of the 7.5 (pb 7.53) zone and today, absolutely
smashed it, firstly with a 7.45 @ 193, followed by the record setting 7.41
@ 193 mph.
Big congratulations on a lot of hard work which eventually paid off. The
team planned to release their Nissan 350z drag car once the car broke into
the 7.4s, and we'll be waiting patiently for their next move.

NISSAN R35 VR38 TWIN TURBO DEBUT - MARK JACOBSEN - GODZILLA MOTORSPORT - 16/11/2013
Mark Jacobsen owner of Godzilla Motorsport was out testing his new combo in
the Skyline R35 Factory Xtreme car on the weekend. It was the car's first
time at the track with the VR38 twin turbo motor. The car previously had the Nissan RB
series engine installed and ran in the mid 6 second zone. No complete
passes were made, as a little more chassis adjustment is needed.
'NITTO' 10.1 @ 154 MPH - NISSAN SKYLINE R34 - TEST N TUNE 07/08/2013
Trent from Mercury Motorsports was out testing his new engine setup in his
'NITTO' Nissan Skyline R34. The car is running on ET Street radials, makes
over 1000HP at all 4 wheels and shifted by a sequential gearbox. With some
more track time, you can be sure this car will head into the 8s with all
that mumbo behind it.
tuned Nissan GTR with over 1200 HP!
This was a special presentation of that infamous car for the members of the
GTROC (www.gtroc.org) during the GTROC Japan Tour 2012.
The TRUST company was so kind to invite the GTROC to come and visit the
TRUST facility and have a first hand look at the unbelievable GTR 35RX
Just a few days after we stood around the car at the Tokyo Auto Salon we
had this great opportunity to watch the car exclusively...but not only were
we allowed to watch at every detail, no we were even invited to take a seat
in the ultra tight race seat and hit the throttle of that monster.
Thank you very much TRUST/ GReddy!

2600hp Ford Falcon??? The DIRTY BIRD
One badass bird! This 1968 Ford Falcon running on 275 Drag Radials lays
down around 2600hp through its 449ci Small Block Ford with a pair of 88mm
turbos, watch it tear down the track at
the North Star Dragaway x275 race.
AMS Alpha Omega: World's First 7 Second R35 GT-R!
After a successful night on July 11, 2013 running an 8.25 @ 185mph, we had
broken the R35 world record by .35 seconds and 5mph but we still wanted
more. Our night was cut short as a Mustang flipped end over end that
knocked out a power transformer cutting all power to the track ending the
night early. Thankfully the driver walked away from this terrifying crash
and is set to make a full recovery.
On Friday, we all had one thing on our mind; what would have happened had
we been able to make that third pass? Speculating turned into preparing to
head to the track on Saturday. Great Lakes Dragaway had the MOFOCO Bugfest
and bracket racing scheduled but was allowing some test and tune in
between. It was going to be extremely busy at the track but our eagerness
to try for a 7 second pass got the best of us.
As we drove into the pits on Saturday afternoon, the facility was packed.
Everything from air cooled VW's to bracket racing rail cars. The Density
Altitude was far from favorable at 2,129ft, it was humid and the
temperature was in the low 80's but that was the last thing on our minds.
After a long wait in the staging lanes Ivan Phipps, driver and head
technician behind Omega, was next to make a run. He pulled onto the track
and did a short dry hop to clean the tires, crept in and lit the beams.
Launching hard with the perfect amount of spin Ivan was off! As Omega hit
second gear the car jerked towards the center of the track, but he was
determined to stay in it. By the time he hit third gear the car was back
on track and pulling hard.
We were silent from that moment until the board lit up "7.984 @ 186.14mph."
We went wild! But it wasn't just us going crazy, it was the whole crowd
and the announcer who exclaimed "Welcome to the seven second club!"
The highlight of the day was Ivan driving down the return lane not having
any idea how fast he had gone. "I knew it was a pretty good pass, but not
sure how good" Ivan said. We all lined up near the time slip booth to
congratulate him and it wasn't until Ivan made a hand gesture in the form
of a '7' as he rolled up and Eric Gaudi (AMS sales manager) confirming with
a nod that Ivan realized he had done it. We had accomplished our goal to
run the first 7 second pass in an R35 GT-R!
In addition to this milestone achievement, Alpha Omega also posted some
insane numbers and set some other records which were recorded by the
onboard V-Box data recorder:
0-60: 1.72 seconds
60-130mph: 2.67 seconds (new overall record)
0-300kph (186mph): 7.98 seconds (new overall record)
100-150mph: 2.42 seconds (new overall record)
30-130mph: 3.63 seconds
What we are most proud about is Alpha Omega is still a street-legal, road
going car. It can be driven anywhere. What's even more impressive is Chris
Black, the evil genius behind the tuning of Omega has still not unleashed
its full potential.
Omega is the test bed for our GT-R line and uses mostly off the shelf Alpha
components. We will be releasing details on the improvements to the car
soon now that we've proven their capabilities. These include:
Alpha Drag Suspension
Alpha Upgraded CCM Brakes
Alpha Drag Wheel and Tire Package
We look forward to seeing other GT-R owners getting much quicker with these
We are excited to attempt an even deeper pass into the 7's in the future
but for now it is time to celebrate the hard work the whole team put in to
