Two litres, four pistons and six-second bound

Fresh off the back of running the country's quickest pass for a sport compact four-cylinder at Jamboree 21, Collin Willshire and the Jett Racing team have solidified their position as the baddest four-pot in the land with an encouraging 7.18sec pass at 190.7mph.

More Pre-Jamboree Testing at Willowbank Raceway

25/8/2011 4:05pm - 7.06 @ 196mph

25/8/2011 11:37am - Scott just ran 7.2 @ 190mph. It shook badly just after the 330ft mark. Car is looking slick and positively evil in its new satin black paintjob.

Secret Agent Dave just flicked through these pics of a brand new V6 combo testing at Willowbank Raceway. The stock-stroke VQ35 runs a pair of custom Garrett T51-based turbochargers on a pair of stunning exhaust manifolds with horsepower expectations clearly on the north side of 1500! Scott Porter's Nissan Infiniti is certainly going to be one to watch and we're hoping that Phil Laird and the team get enough testing done before J21 to be compeitive. Make sure you get along to J21 on the 27th and 28th of August to see it.

***UPDATE*** Extra pics added at bottom of post.

***ADDITIONAL UPDATE*** 7.2sec @ 184mph - 1.09 60ft.

Next pass 7.7 @ 194 with heaps of shake.

7.15@197 mph on last pass with big pedal job.

World's first R35 GT-R drag car

When the news of not one but three full-chassis R35 GT-R drag cars appeared as if from nowhere just a couple of weeks ago it took many, including the team at Zoom, by surprise. Aaron Gregory and the ITP team did well to keep the simultaneous builds on the down-low but since those first pics, we've seen nothing. Zero. Zip.
