Mates Skyline 'TRY09' ran a 9.46 @ 150.9mph

Well done Brett and the Subzero boys! Once again Aust fastest Skyline. It also make it the quickest street 6 in the land!

Ignition problems hampered it going any quicker on it's last two pass recording 9.6 @ 144mph and a 9.8 @ 124mph. The 9.46 was done on 1.6 bar boost but onced turned up to 2 bar it simply blew the spark out.

More to come!!

GTR-700 would be the fastest but he went into full time drag

What would this car do without NOS ?

One question. If it's using gas (NOS) which is undoubtedly illegal, how can you class it as a STREET 6, which generally means street-legal????

yes it was impounded.

Murdercity, it's street registered. simple. not street legal. same as most car in the top 10 street car.

It's a R33 gts-t Skyline. It has a RB30 block with RB26 head with the works. Same motor that's going in my VL except i have bigger cams.

GTR700 has only ran a 9.7 @ 144mph midz even though it's still a full drag car. i'm sure he will improve on his next outing as TRY09's has.

May I ask for an (approximate) cost of what you've done to your VL, PVL?? If you dont want it out in the open, you could pm me, but you dont have to if you dont want to tell

TURBO, the car weighs more than standard due to a full rollcage. it has lighter front seat amd no rear seats and no carpet.

Mudercity, plenty. i won't say how much though!

NOS, cheaters way of getting extra HP. What has it run without NOS ??

I'm sure it will still be quick, and by all means great run.

Dont quote me on this but i beleive its best time without NOS is only mid/low 10s without the aid of NOS and boost starts to build at around 6000rpm. ive read somewhere the owner said it would fry the trans if he tried to get it up on boost without the aid of NOS as it just wont do it without it.

For those who wish to know 3080lbs is around 1350kg. i thought thats what they weighed standard without stripped interiors/lighter seats.etc. And a FULL chromoly cage would only weigh the same weight as a bucket seat,there not very heavy at all.

What intrigues me most though with this car is it just keeps making more and more power and going faster and faster on what they claim is the same boost level.

Also why would you need a 100hp hit of NOS to just spin up a turbo.Bens VL only used a small 30hp shot and his spun up straight away and ran quicker times than this car.

While its sounds like im bagging this car im not, im just stating the claims what have got me baffled about it, there's no taking anything away from this car as its a fantastic effort all the same i just thought id throw my .02c worth in.

Whens it racing next PVL-747 and is it going to be trying to take the fastest skyline title back to QLD again.
