    • How does a 1000 horsepower R34 GTR stack up against a Formula 1 car from 1994 in a roll race?

      Formula 1 car versus tuned Nissan GTR is an awesome race. This one is not quite what we would want to see as a 2017 Formula 1 car against a top tuner R35 GTR is what BoostAddict would choose. Beggars can't be choosers and this is still a very cool race that puts performance in perspective.


      The R34 features a 2.8 liter built RB26DETT engine with a billet block. They say it makes 1000 horsepower which is certainly believable.

      The 1994 Footwork Area Formula 1 car on the other hand has naturally aspirated 3.5 liter Ford Cosworth V8 power. It revs to roughly 10,000 rpm and makes 620 horsepower or so.

      What this comes down to is power to weight and not outright power.

      The GTR does hang in pretty darn well with a car that is about half its weight. It even takes one run where the F1 car misses a gear and can't make up the gap.

      Very cool to see. Now who can put together a 2000+ awhp tuner R35 against a modern F1 car?
