Well done Kev and Ben, first run 9.8 at 145.7, fastest outside the US, and on stock frame turbos. :clap:

SVM/GTC parts galore, forged engine, cams, all the bolt ons, transmission upgrades, the latest Cobb ECM and TCM stuff.

Great engine, great driving, great tuning (I can say that because Ben did this one not me). To those who wonder if GTC are a "tuner", put that in your pipe and smoke it :D

To those who say Kev is just lambo doors and LED badges, I need say nothing!

Many thanks for the supportive comments guys its appreciated


Delighted to be the 3rd Tuner in the World to run a RH9 GT-R !!!! We should have done it much sooner (this was only second time out with the car, first in the summer very hot day ran a 10.3), but usual UK weather, and other customer cars took propriety.

Never thought today was going to happen, its been raining heavy all week including this morning, but we had to go for it being the last event of the year before 6 months of winter arrives.

The 35 was driven 2 hour journey in full weight trip, except cobra seats replace the oem, some gtc carbon (trunk & bonnet). We arrived at the track to see lots of puddles & mud everywhere. The rain had stopped and we waited 2 hours for the organisers to dry the strip, it wasn't ideal and wasn't prepped but had to do :p

Off came the road wheels / tires to be replaced for 18's wheels & Hoosier tires.






Not wanting to tempt fate or anything but i decided to call the map '9 sec switcher' anyway lol





also first time trying the LC1 'e' 4k launch many thanks to Joe for all his hard work












Time for some action


First run out the box, cold tires




















first run, bruce pulls it out the bag.

well done , right lane wasn't that good either today. we had major hassle in 3rd gear with the 350z.

last 1/8 speed is pretty good as well. 118 to 147 mph shows the car is running some grunt ;-)

well done boys.

Well done Ben/Kev

Have no doubt this spec will go a lot quicker with a better track prep, I was running slower times than I did back in June.

nice to meet some of you at the pod today.

didn't realise it was a GTR meet, came to see a couple of minis from 1320mini run before time attack next weekend, and then saw the gtr's so thought i'd come say hi.

didn't manage to speak to the owner of the silver beast, but congrats on the time, seriously fast.

didn't run today though - had fun watching you guys

What a great day!

Well done to all involved with this car - amazing and it looked sooo effortless as it left the line.....:bowdown1:

I agree Kevan, would have been nice to see some other high powered cars run against you.

As I said to Ben I think my GF got the run on an HD video
