Me, Shin, 200 Mph Plus And A Very Clear Piece Of De-restricted Autobahn!

Just returned from Spa and the Ring with Gary "FLAT CHAT" Chapple, Bruce "PRESS ON" Hartrup, Shin "EVERY PIECE OF TARMAC IS MINES" Inuque and of course myself Jamie "I'M GOING TO GO FLAT THROUGH EAU ROUGE EVEN IF IT KILLS ME" Martin.


Needless to say we have many stories to tell not least that we where filming the new Duke Video official GTR Video that will be launched in April of next year. Trust me we have captured some great footage.

From me lapping Nurnburgring Grand Prix Circuit behind former 24 hour champion Ziggi Ziglar at flat chat keeping up with him and his Ruf 996 tt hybrid beneath him, he was most impressed that the GTR stayed with him and .... it was wet....... To a rolling Belgium Police road block set up especially for us (we felt so special and welcome!) I've always wanted to have a go in the back of a T5 with Handcufs on but I hoped it would be with a femail not a couple of Belgium Coppers who where SO pissed of to say the least that they had spent 45 miles at 150mph and still could not catch us (I'll post my speeding ticket at a later date).

But to wet your hungry appetites Shin has put up a url with his speedo showing over 200mph. This was done on a derestricted autobahn at about 2 am in the morning, just to set the scene I am in front of him whilst we did this run. We will post more footage in time.

Enjoy!!

(type the link exactly as I have or it won't work)

Jamie.

PS: WARNING: Do not take Eau Rouge Flat unless you can catch oversteer next to a wall at 130 mph.

Nice vid.
Pardon me for spreading doom and gloom but...
Skyline speedos are usually very inaccurate usually more than 10mph out at 180mph+.

I would estimate at 7000 an R34 in 6th with standard wheels and standard transmission would do 183/184mph.
At 8000rpm 209/210mph.
I.e 26.25 mph.

When Guy returns he can probably confirm my figures.

Still a nice achievement, to decide to turn left at that sort of pace!

Agree with you Ged. Shows that I was awake this morning and put 'indicated' as I guessed that it would be out by a bit.

Thanks.

Hi there,

To be honest, we all know about the speedo things, so I totally do not care about the actual speed.
It is enough for me to have had enjoyeble weekend with Jamie, Bruce and Gary Chapple.
If I really want to know the actual speed of the car, we can use the accurate device to measure the speedo, so please feel free to discuss about the speedo things.
Many thanks guys.

Yours,
Shin

Wow,

Shin, I am impressed. You've got a lot more balls than me. I've been in a car driven at 155mph before and that was terrifying so I cannot imagine what 200 must feel like. Did you need special rated tyres?

I always though that the Skyline R34 GT-R would top out at around 180 mph once derestricted... to see you get upto 210 mph indicated on the clock is quite amazing !

What engine mods have you done to achieve this apart from the obvious engine (ecu wire cut mod?) derestriction.

Hi Trevor

Thank you for your comment.
There are no secret at all about the car.
You can see the specifications at

http://www.prospec-ms.co.uk/demo/mines.html

The car has not been designed for the top speed run.
It is track car and the fastest lap on Spa was 2min58sec.

The tyres are Falken FK451.

P.S.
Thank Bruce for helping me changing brake pads and taking off stones.

Yours,
Shin

Photos uploaded.

Hi there,

I have just uploaded more than 100 photos of the trip.
http://www.prospec-ms.co.uk/report/report_20021102.html
I believe Gary Chapple, Jamie and Bruce has took a lot of photos as well.
Enjoy!!

Yours,
Shin

jm/SHIN

Which autobahn was it then?
there are some cracking stretches of road down that part of germany especially when you head out towards stuttgart and the A6 south....porsche test track virtually.

I always remember the classic case of Thomas Bscher (corporate banker in Frankfurt) who has a Mclaren F1 as his road car and trhen he used to race them as well. He regularly used to do 200 MPH plus every day to work down the A3 from Koln to FFurt.
and when the Mclaren engineers can to service the car through modem link they coul dnto believe their eyes...er sir you appaer to do some stupid speeds...
His reply was but of course...that is what it was built for!!

What a legend.

Shin's came pretty close to a Mclaren F1's top here too hasn't he!!!!

What was the top speed on the F1 anyway? At 200+mph I'm sure Shin's near as dammit there!!!

Shin, big respect!!! I don't think many Skylines will top 200+ mph in their lifetime on the roads
