The GT-R That Jack Built

May 11th, 2018

Running in the fine air that permeates Colorado Springs, Colorado, an outstanding field of performance cars has gathered to assault a half-mile patch of abandoned airstrip. Among them is this no-nonsense Nissan GT-R.

The Pike’s Peak Airstrip Attack is among the most prestigious top-speed events in the world.  

This black beauty is powered by a 4.1-liter stroker motor (aluminum connecting rods) with an Extreme Turbo Systems (ETS) kit on it (twin Precision 6466 turbochargers). At 37 psi, the car maxed a 1,500hp dyno out. Jack’s Transmissions performed the build on the entire car and they are on-hand today to help propel Kaiju into the record books. Today the crew has got her turned up to 40 psi in an effort to break the 200 mph barrier in the standing half-mile. Let’s see how it goes.

Despite being a fresh build, the Kaiju GT-R comes out of the blocks strong with a first pass of 199,37 mph. Not bad at all.

Next, Kaiju eats up a Mustang like a duck on a tadpole but still falls just short of the big 2-0-0 mark; posting a 199.82 mph top-speed. Oh, well there’s always tomorrow and with weather conditions improving, who knows what might happen.

In the bright sunshine, and with the cooler temperatures, Kaiju finally hits his mark with a first pass of 203.25 mph. Congratulations guys!
