Hi All

Some of you may be familiar with my car from SAU for those that are not here's a quick run down. Car was imported from Japan as an original R32 N1 (only 228 ever made) about in Dec 07. Car was pretty much standard just the basic bolt ons. After driving it for a few months we accidently killed No.6 Piston, Pulled the engine out to rebuild, one thing lead to another now its a full on street/drag machine. Its taken 3yrs to build and the modifications continue as Andra keep bringing out stupid rules.

Anyways majority of work was done by myself, my brother Matt and my Dad Eric. With the help of Mark Jacobson at Godzilla Motorsport who built the killer engine and gearbox combination. The car has pretty much had a unlimited budget so to speak, no expense spared, has everything you can think of. Our goal is to keep it true to the GTR nature, only exception being is it now a 2.7 not 2.6 but 5 speed H pattern box remains along with 4wd and standard style suspension and is still street registered. We wont stop until it is the fastest street radial H pattern GTR in the world, and then may revamp it and step up to the big leagues and go for 7's.

I would write a spec list but it would take me a week to write it up. But for those that are interested it will be on the front cover of HPI Magzine in a couple months time. The car has only had 3 proper runs down the strip as the Officals at the track kept kicking us off, but the progress has been awesome first ever run with a very inexperienced driver it done a 10.9sec @ 135mph with a 1.8 60ft. That was on the 19" Rims and Advan AD08's with the 700rwhp tune. The second time we took the car out same tune and tyres done a 10.3 @ 145mph with a 1.7 60ft. The last time we took it out same tune and tyres again done a 10.1 @ 141mph with a 1.5 60ft.

Gonna try get a 9sec pass on the 19inch rims, cause all the falcodore people's jaw's hit the floor when they see our car drive through the gates run a 10.1 on the 19's then drive out the gate and drive home, we never get hit up for drags off the lights around town hahaha!!!!!

The car is currently pulled apart at the moment getting it final Andra Spec mods done to so it complies as well as a few secret mods that Mark at Godzilla has shared with us to make it even quicker. The 17" Enkei RPF1 will be going on with the mickey thompson ET's next as well as a healthy power increase should get us a low 9's pretty easily, then going for broke to get a 8.

cant wait till its turned up and on drag tyres. that will make it much more interesting to watch, especially running an 8 in a H pattern box, i can imagine every gearshift unsettling the car and making it dance left and right. thats gold right there.

Yeah its gonna be quite a mission to a achieve but hopefully this new flat shifter that we are getting made should make the gear changes faster and smoother, time will tell :)

The 32 would be quicker I am pretty sure, 34 gearing and weight would be its biggest downfall.

The R32 is fully stripped out, all the carbon panels will be going on shorty doors & boot and maybe some carbon strange brakes later on, have paid the last 6 months rego after that it will be pure race car.

Its been awhile since an update has happened so here's what"s been going on.

After is 3rd run at Palmyra (10.1sec @141mph with 1.5sec 60ft on 275/30R19 Advan AD08's) we were pretty much told not to come back until our car complies with the new ANDRA Rule book so the car has been on the hoist in a million piece's getting it up to spec. So engine came out for its next dose of go fast bits and slight modification to some of the support systems, car is all back together now and the plan is to take it back to Godzilla Motorsport in the next month for a retune and setting up the other systems to give us the edge and hopefully make over 1000awhp. Goal at the moment is to stay on the 19 inch rims with the Advan AD08s and get a 9sec pass i reckon it has a mid to high 9sec pass in them.

New parts fitted:
-Ikeya Formula Front Lower Control Arms (Off my R33)
-Ikeya Formula Rear Lower Control Arms (Off my R33)
-Moonface Racing Strengthened Tie Rod Arms (Off R33)
-Moonface Racing Tie Rod Ends (Off R33)
-Andra Spec 6mm Mild Steel Bell housing Scatter Guard
-Strain/Ignition Cut Gauge on Gear stick
-Revised 4wd Attessa Systems specially modified.
-Rebuild Transfer Case
-More Vipec Engine Sensors
-Revised Engine Breather Setup
-Custom Air Clutch system (yet to be tested under race condition's)

Parts Ready to Go on when we need them:
-4 inch Titanium Side Pipe
-Carbon Fibre Doors with Lexan Glass
-Carbon Fibre Trunk with Drag Wing
-17" Enkei RPF1 with Mickey Thompson ET Street Drag Tires

More Pics and Videos Coming Soon!!!!!!!!

Haven't weighted the car but i'm gonna guess around the 1300kg area, the doors alone will save about 50-60kg

1.5sec 60ft time is pretty awesome for 19 inch tyres no side wall flex with 30mm profile poor old Advan AD08's are designed for circuit work, not getting torched with smoke and big HP :) but yes tyres are spinning for a fair while

Haven't done an update in awhile, since the track has been repaired out at Palmyra we have managed to have a couple of runs. The track has no rubber left on fro the floods so the track is super slippery but that's why we have 4wd . Anyway last night was the debut of the car with the 17" Mickey Thompson ET Streets and straight away the car is 100% better at everything. The flat shifter is working perfect with the PPG box and the car is driving straight as an arrow. With a better prepared track and little bit more power a low 9 is very achievable and will be punching out a 8sec pass in no time. Any way here is a compilation video i made up of the run enjoy.

Hi Everyone

Time for an update seen as it has been awhile. Where to begin Jamboree has been and gone was a great success for us this year as we debut the car there this year and have finally brought home the 8sec timeslip we wanted Fuck Yeah!!!!!!!.

The car ran a 8.97 @ 150MPH with a 60ft of 1.35sec putting our R32 GTR as the 2nd Fastest Street Tyre H Pattern Gearbox GTR in the world, trailing behind Theo's time of 8.95sec. Yep that's right we are only 0.02sec of having the world record which is pretty awesome considering the car is no where near its full potential yet still plenty of power up its sleeve.

The car only completed 3 runs on Saturday the first 2 runs where test runs and the 3rd run was the 8.9sec. On Sunday we bumped the power up a bit more ( was approx near 1000HP) to try and snatch the record, the car was going strong and at half track the car was 3MPH faster then disaster struck 3rd gear decided to explode ending our weekend and our World record chance. Any way little disappointing but still got the 8sec pass we have been trying so hard to Achieve so at the end of the day we were extremely happy, and knowing we are only 0.02sec off the world record we should have that in the bag on our next trip to Willowbank.

What now you might ask, well the engine and gearbox is already out of the car, gearbox fully stripped and components being tested/replaced. The standard sandwich plate in the gearbox failed also and cracked so we have a New OS Giken Billet Plate on the way aswell as getting a new parts list sorted out for PPG Gearbox to sort out. We will be doing upgrades to the car as we have got parts ready to go on, the car was weighed at Willowbank on the scales and the car came in at 1440KG with half tank of fuel, which was a shock to us i thought it was lighter. Not to worry car is going on a diet.

Parts that are coming:
-Carbon Fibre Doors with Lexan windows
-Carbon Fibre Boot
-Full Carbon Fibre Brake Setup
-One Piece Chromoly Tailshaft
-New and improved fuel system (mechanical pump).
-Titanium Dump Pipe.

With all these new parts and a more healthy dose of HP our new aim is to 1. Beat the H Pattern Street Tyre Record of 8.95 and 2. Beat RH9GTR Auto Gearbox 8.47sec pass. Exciting times !!!!!!!

Cheer guys has been an awesome achievement for us all though it was a little easy to car has never given us any real drama, i knew straight away that willowbank would give us the result we wanted as our tracks up here in Nth QLD are terrible, i guesstimated that we should drop 0.4 - 0.5sec off of our 9.4sec pass we ran out in Mackay at Palmyra Dragway Test'n'Tune, and we did so future is looking bright for this car.

We will be seriously discussing between the family if in the future we put a Liberty Clutchless transmission in and full drag slicks and maybe try take Reece Mcgregor's 7.57sec World Record on. But baby steps we will be sticking with the H-pattern box for now.
