Nissan GT-R Track Pack v Porsche 997 Turbo S - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
It's been raining in England for the past 6 weeks, so this is a damp test.
The GT-R Track Pack seems a bit half-hearted and, on-paper, the 997 turbo S is the closest rival. I went to an
evening track event at Brands hatch to discover the differences/ work out
if the Track pack is worth the extra cash.

We were able to make our first pass at 12:08 in the afternoon with the
density altitude (DA) sitting at -392.8 ft and steadily rising till around
3PM where it began falling again. We started with our local 93 octane fuel
and 93 octane software and began practicing our launches. After 3 attempts
we were hitting 1.7x 60' times and were passing the quarter mile mark at
11.2x seconds at 122-123 MPH. The car was very consistent producing 6
passes in a row in the 11.1 and 11.2 range, including hot lapped passes
(meaning running down the strip, coming back and running again with no cool
On 93 octane with our 93 octane software our best ET the day was
firstname.lastname@example.org with a 1.654 60 FT time and a DA of only -42.2 feet! Our best
trap speed of the day was with an email@example.com MPH with a 1.772 60 FT and
a DA of -58.1 feet.
Around 4 PM we switched over to 100 octane to get in a few passes.
Unfortunately the daylight was dropping and the track informed us we could
only run till it was dark. We only had time to run several passes on 100
octane with very little cool down time between each run. Never the less, on
100 octane our best ET and trap speed was on our second pass, only several
minutes after the previous run and was firstname.lastname@example.org with a less than
stellar 1.802 60 FT and a DA of -155.5 ft.
Overall we were very impressed with performance given this was our first
attempt in the RS4. The DA on our record 93 octane passes was very close to
0 feet and we believe with a lower DA, the times could drop. Likewise, with
an improved 60 foot time, we believe a 10 second pass is achievable on
street tires and full weight, possibly even on 93 octane. We unfortunately
do not have any data for a full high flow Exhaust system and other common modifications
popular to the RS4 community, but hope to see results from our customers
who've upgraded further!
That brings us to the fun part!
After only a few passes on 100 octane, we decided it was time to have fun
before the track closed. We jacked the car up, drained the fuel, threw in
104 octane, installed our 104 octane software, removed the passenger and
back seat, installed drag slicks, and removed the factory catback Exhaust for even more weight savings.
We fired up the RS4 and it was beastly! Everyone at the track crowded
around to make sense of this snarling Audi in the heart of American muscle
We had less than an hour to get in a few passes before the track closed.
The first run broke into the 10 with our top trap speed of the day at
131.67 MPH, but we knew it had more in it. On the next run we did a massive
burn out and heated up the tires and were able to hit a 1.49 60 ft time,
but a missed shift resulted in only a 10.7@130 pass. Eric pulled the car
around, let it cool for a second and headed right back out. The next pull
was his best pass of the evening, setting a email@example.com pass with a 1.500
60 FT time and a DA of -528.2 as the sun was dropping. We were so close to
10.5's but there wasn't enough time to get in many more passes with any
decent cool down time between. We were able to run 3 more passes several
minutes apart and cut 10.6's on each one with trap speeds ranging from

Serious Autosport's R35 Nissan GTR Breaks Standing Mile World Record At 200.709 MPH
There were two tests to be had as the GTR first ran the "Standing Mile,"
which saw the clock start to click with the Nissan at a standstill before
taking off at full speed. Just one mile later, the V6 twin turbo powered Hoover forward to 200.709
mph-setting a new IMRA mark for the Nissan GTR.
The second category saw Hoover get a 300 foot head start to the proceedings
as he crossed the timing line with some momentum already building. That
brought an even more impressive result as his clocked another new GT-R
record with a mark of 208.902 miles per hour through the "Flying Mile"
