After having broken our 1st gear due to launch control, we have successfully repaired & strengthened the transmission with $1,500 parts.
We haven't had a chance to dial-in the car on the current set-up but wanted to get back to the track right away.
We just so happened to set a new record. 10.47@132

Samurai Speed sets yet another GT-R record!!!
Currently the world's fastest GT-R R35.
Sunday, December 21, 2008 at Orlando Speedworld. Temperature was 74
degrees. Running 100 octane.
* Same mods listed in our 10.80 run. We merely changed a few controller
settings (still running 17psi).
Launch control was used. John Reese (owner) driving.
Samurai Speed Breaks Their GT-R's Transmission!
After over 100+ launches of 600+whp, Samurai Speed finally found the limits
of the GT-R's transmission! The gearbox snapped like a twig on launch.
* We're actually HAPPY that we finally found its limits. We knew it was
only a matter of time and needed to upgrade the tranny to be able to take
the car to the next power level (700...800...900HP and beyond.)

Samurai Speed GT-R Engine Explosion!
IMPORTANT UPDATE: ENGINE IS 100% FINE!
The engine turned out to be okay. It was the bell housing the exploded
from too much torque! We'll get her fixed and back to the track quickly!
After finding the limits of the R35 transmission we're now working on
finding the limits of the engine.
We added a 150 shot of Nitrous to our
already 600+whp GT-R and created some fireworks! (And, unfortunately,
damaged the engine.)
But we'll rebuild the engine stronger than ever and be back with even
BIGGER HP! Stay tuned.

Coming back from a photo shoot we took the liberty of doing a couple of Boost pulls. At one point the Supra
looses traction at about 70mph. With more than 800HP traction is the
biggest problem. The GT-R on the other hand equipped with a COBB Access
Port, HKS GT570 Kit &Legamax Exhaust
has low speed wheel spin of all 4 tires. Both cars professionally built and
tuned at Illtech Auto Salon in Tacoma WA.
