Nissan Gt-r Nismo Breaks Drifting World Record

6 posts in this topic


Nissan Middle East has set a new Guinness World Record for the worlds fastest drift at an event in the United Arab Emirates. Behind the wheel of a heavily-modified Nissan GT-R Nismo, Japanese drifter, Masato Kawabata sent the GT-R into a drift at an incredible 304.96km/h. The drift was completed at Fujairah International Airport in the UAE and used every inch of the three kilometre runway in order to reach the 300km/h benchmark the team had set itself. As per strict guidelines, the Nissan Middle East team had only three attempts and had to fulfil specific angle and drift duration requirements in order the complete the record-breaking feat.


The team managed to tick all the boxes to become the new record holders. Kawabata, the current Japanese drifting series title holder, smashed the previous record of 256km/h set in Poland using a modified Toyota GT86. The record was achieved, in part, thanks to the immense work that went into tuning the GT-R. Japan-based GReddy Trust, managed to take the GT-Rs standard 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6, which normally produces 404kW, up to a staggering 1029kW.


While all that extra power was crucial to the record attempt, other mods like ultra-lightweight wheels and specially designed Toyo tyres had to be fitted to the car into order to make sure all that power wasnt just turned into smoke and molten rubber.

I'm surprised the weight of his balls didn't affect his ability to drift.

      R35JET Plates for sale
      G'day guys, after owning these plates for 8 years I thought it was finally time to see them out on the road. The plates speak for themselves. I have a figure in my head as to what I'm wanting but keen to see what people will offer. Fire away, thanks.

      FS - 1995 R33 GTR Vspec
      Up for sale is a 1995 R33 GTR VSpec with 122xxx KMs.
      It is a little rough around the edges.  And, full disclosure - It has some history.  I'm keeping it out of the post but will happily reply to PMs.
      Recently registered and expires 25/10/2017.  All fluids changed just before re-registering.  It's due for an oil change - six months is nearly up.  Started weekly, maybe driven every second or third week for 100 - 200 KMs.  Red Line Lightweight Shockproof in the gearbox, all other oils/fluids per specification.
      It had a misfire.  This is now long gone - see my posts about this.  Fixing this, the ignitor pack and plugs have been replaced/changed.  Issue was with the coil packs.  Another set was bought, cleaned up and dielectric grease sealing them. It has a leaking injector.  Second hand set purchased along with a rebuild kit.  Injectors replaced with new o-rings etc - no more leaking injector. Bridgestone Potenza RE003s fitted mid December 2016. Mongoose M80S alarm installed.  No bells and whistles, just arm/disarm with an impact sensor. All round wheel alignment done October 2016. New battery New radiator and top hose (bottom hose was A-OK) This car was my daily for a long time, then became a weekend car.  Oil changed every 5000 KMs, or six months with maintenance and problems done by myself or a mechanic.  I had plans for the car and like many others lost interest and just enjoy driving it as is.  Mechanically it is in great condition and drives well.
      It is a little rough around the edges.  Scratches, dints and gutter rash sum it all.  It isn't a show car.  Odometer recently stopped working (it occasionally ticks over) with high 121xxx KMs when it stopped, it is now 122xxx.  Haven't gotten around to fixing it.  I started to collect parts to swap them out, but only collected and swapped nothing - this be your job.
      No major modifications.  Exhaust and dyno at 245KW - old school Racepace days.
      Buy the car and get:
      Spare injectors Spare ignitor pack PowerFC with hand controller Nismo AFMs A collection of front/rear floor mats Spare coil packs Parts of a Series 1 steering wheel - the car is fitted with a Series 3 wheel What I think is a complete boot set of carpets Left and right hand door cards Replacement passenger side tail light.  A drivers' side (or two?) tail light. Whatever else I find that belongs to it Conditions vary of the listed parts.  All included with the sale, will not separate.
      I'll say it comes with a RWC.  I expect no issues and will start the ball rolling only with a serious buyer.  Price $32,000 ono located in Altona.  I'll happily drive you during an inspection and there will be no test pilots.
      VIN - 6U900BCNR33001030.
      And no, I didn't wash (vacuum or dust) the car before taking pictures - WYSIWYG.  It was raining all day today and I ran the gauntlet.
      PM me if interested.

      Hi all,
      Long time no see!
      Got a set of R32 GTR wheels with some A048s to get rid of.
      They have center caps and valve caps, but they are by no means showroom quality
      (perfect for motorkhanas which is what I use to use them for)
      No idea how much these are worth these days.. suggestions? Offers?
      Ps. just read the rules - this isn't an EOI, but I really don't know what they go for these days..
      So for the sake of not breaking the rules - ballpark: $500??

      Gtr digital G-sensors
      I'm looking at upgrading my g sensor for a new digital g sensor
      has anyone used the midori/do-luck/Tarzan digital g sensors ?
      what do you think of them ? Worth while upgrade ? Are they Realy much of an improvement over the stock analoge sensors ?
      feedback would be much appreciated before I make a purchase 
      ps. What's the difference between the normal street version and race model ?
