Nismo Clubman Race Spec Skyline GT-R : Speed Hunters

NISMO Clubman Race Spec R34 GT-R

NISMO hasn't given up on the R34 GT-R, releasing a new updated version with several new parts. This Clubman Race Spec uses a mix of Z-Tune, R35, and NISMO components to extract some more life out of the 15 year old chassis.

Check out the full feature and tons of outstanding pictures from Dino Dalle Carbonare at Speed Hunters. 

While Nismo won’t disclose any actual figures, it’s safe to say that with the modern additions – like the R35 injectors and retuned ECU – the Clubman Race Spec should easily develop 500hp. To meet that power Omori Factory has sat the factory Getrag six-speed gearbox on a set of stiffer transmission mounts and added in a Nismo Copper Mix twin-plate clutch. Up front the BNR34 runs a 1.5-way Nismo LSD, while the rear has been upgraded with a 3.9:1 final gear set, slightly tightening the ratios for optimum punch out of corners. This was always one of Mine’s secrets, along with a custom made LSD which made the car untouchable on the track. Extracting the most out of the driveline is the Nismo Z-tune Attesa ET-S ECU – a reprogrammed unit with much more aggressive settings that keeps the car in full AWD-mode for more of the time to take full advantage of the mechanical grip the system can generate. This works hand in hand with Öhlins DFV adjustable suspension and a full line-up of Nismo links and firmer sway bars.

Cars and Coffee Irvine 9-20-14

Always a fun time at Cars and Coffee Irvine. We had the 1972 SR20 powered Hakosuka come out, plus our NISMO, and our new 240SX Convertible with R32 look. That last one is a bit of an oddity, Looks pretty close to a R32. Kind of different, so we had to buy it.

8.73 @ 153 MPH : RB26 Powered Z

Carrying the front wheels
Clint's RB powered Z answered my last question. Still running the same boost, with a little more tuning, he picked up some tenths, and mph.  The first video, he carrys the front wheels, and loses an intercooler pipe at 330 feet. Coasting though with a 10 second pass.

Sport Compact Car Magazine - 2003 Ultimate Street Car Challenge 3

Sport Compact Car Magazine had a test, they called the Ultimate Street Car Challenge. It was supposed to take one of "our" tuner cars, and put it though a battery of tests, to see the overall winner. The first one was actually won by Fast and Furious technical adviser, Craig Lieberman, in his Toyota Supra. At Motorex, we got involved in the second contest, with Justins R33 GT-R. The third contest should have been with Danny's R33. So even though they call this the third one, it was actually the fourth. Maybe it was the third because it was in 2003? Looking at the dates of the photos we actually did the event the end of September 2002. 3 month lead times, plus the story spread over a couple issues, meant that it was well into 2003 by the time it was published.

9 Second Twin Engine Pontiac GTP

I love sleepers, and weird is cool. This is a twin engine, turbocharged Pontiac GTP, making over 1000 hp according to the video. Two stock engines, and stock transmissions. 139 mph in the quarter is no joke. Fun. Much props out to these guys.

Ben's 9 Second GTP by Turbo Dynamics...
0-60 mph 1.8 seconds
0-100 mph 4.4 seconds
What's is crazy about this project is this is done on stock transmissions and stock engines as well.
TD turbo kits, TD tuning on the ecu and a Magnashift box to control the rear transmission. The rear transmission is from a Cadillac.

The track conditions were very hot and humid.
Racing done at Napierville dragway.

We broke the trans going for 9.4-9.5 seconds. We pushed it too hard off the line with 20 psi on the launch. We now know the limit of the stock Cadillac trans and will work around that and add power after the start.
