It's been a while since I posted

Life has been pretty busy working

 

Managed to fly across to Sydney to help the Motive DVD boys out with GT-R Challenge and Drag Battle.

Caught up with Kyle from 1320 Videos he was nice enough to drop me down to pickup my

GT-R for the 1st drive.

Motorsports Mechanical had the car together however not 100% complete was perfect enough for the shake down at Cootamundra.

 

Drove over to CRD where a few other cars were getting loaded on to the V8 supercar carrier

Brett Hobson from Hobson motorsports offered a spot to my car so on she went.

 

Headed out to Cootamundra the next morning and had an absolute blast for the weekend

Make sure you grab the DVD when it comes out.

 

After Coota we headed to Eastern Creek Dragway to see what the car could do on 500kw.

 

10.2 at 140mph 1.7 60ft. Need more time behind the wheel to get the 60ft down but definitely had a high 9 in it.

 

Headed to the 1320 Video and Turbosmart meet and greet which blew my mind, got a tour of the machine shop and got some insight into how they make each product. very cool night!

 

Had the car on display at Jamboree was an amazing experience meeting new people and followers for my build.

 

Can't wait to get back to Sydney for Nitto GT-R Festival in 5 weeks time.

The car will be tuned up to around 1000hp.

 

Fun times ahead [emoji1]

So last pieces of the puzzle coming together
Just purchased the Godzilla Motorsport R35 coil kit and wiring
I have to say they were awesome to deal with and great value than other ignition systems

Flying to Sydney tonight to start helping with GT-R Festival on the weekend
Looking forward to racing the car on 40psi+ boost

A couple more shots of the car at GT-R battle

 

Only changes to date are the Motorsports Mechanical stickers have been removed (way to big and in your face)

The car has been sent to Croyden racing developments to be finished off

My 150amp altanator was removed at GT-R Festival and fitted to JUN II so he could run the car. Ended up breaking the world record and ran 7.66 at 188mph. Glad I could help the boys from CRD out

Have swapped out the fuel regulator on the car and changed to a weldon racing unit this is the same one used on JUN II and seen to be very reliable with ethanol based fuels

Godzilla motorsport coil Packs have been fitted but I am now having 4wd issues with car so can't turn it up fml

The saga continues......

Did you move over to CRD from MSM due to issues with the build/car?

MSM were to busy to finish the car off.

The engine they have built so far is awesome it's just taken to long to get to this point and the car is still not finished

MSM are still working closely with the CRD team to make sure the car is sorted

Well it's been a long... long time since I have updated this thread.

Alot has happened with the car but I am happy to report it is back in Western Australia.

The car is definitely looking worse for wear having been in Sydney for the last 3 years, but I'm just happy to have the car home.

Check out my build breakdown.

A few build pictures from the last year and a half.

Adam Lz was over from the USA and poped into CRD. Perfect timing as the car was doing it's run in on the Dyno. 

IMG_8872.thumb.jpg.0a582a438df2d53187612794d0fa06ac.jpg

Then one of my best mates decided he looked better in a picture than Adam Lz... I have never been so traumatized over a picture 😂😂😂😂😂

IMG_8871.thumb.jpg.1c2b5cd597dd2264712a0a75e0454329.jpg

The car ended up arriving like this. 17inch Koya Racing rims with Mickey Thompson Et  street tyres

IMG_20190719_231837_477.thumb.jpg.662efc36ce8bf8460d2051ee0a48d575.jpg

I finally fitted my 19x10.5 Works Emotion Dr9 rims with 275/30r19 street tyres.

I think I'm starting to fall back in love with this Nugget.
