    • Nissan GT-R goes further into the 6's setting new quickest US record at TX2K19 - ETS runs 6.731@223.26 1/4 mile

      The GT-R is basically unbeatable at this point unless you go to some serious American muscle built specifically to dominate the drag strip. The car is in the 6's and we are talking NHRA Pro Stock level performance here.


      Obviously this ETS (Extreme Turbo Systems) built GT-R is hardly a street car any longer and essentially a dedicated drag car like the NHRA Pro Stock vehicles but it is still based on a production car body, chassis, and drivetrain unlike NHRA Pro Stock. That is a massive distinction.

      This is the quickest US GT-R record and it is utterly absurd:


      Where do they go from here?

      Alpha Logic 'holds' the official record but the Bahrain 1/4 mile strip is not NHRA licensed: https://www.boostaddict.com/content....-NHRA-licensed

      It is important to note these GT-R's go through transmissions and motors almost as quickly as the professional NHRA drag racers:


      These GT-R guys are only competing against themselves.

        I've seen in other vids they're shooting for the record and I think they're planning to do it at an American track so most likely NHRA certified

        I always wondered what made Gidi leave AMS. Not matter what the answer, he obviously made the right move. I just wish these imports competed more like the late 90s into the early 2000s. Performance this insane needs to be put on display more often.

        I'm amazed that these guys can justify the expense of chewing up transmissions and built engines like its nothing! This year was mild compared to his time with ams, he must have gone through 6 motors and god knows how many transmissions with them. As insane as it sounds if he can ever make a completely clean pass the car can probably go 6.5x
