Two 9sec, SP tuned. GReddy Powered R35s

This week we were lucky enough to tag along with one of our GReddy GTR Master Tech Tuners, SP Engineering, on there quest show the potential of R35 GTR. This past Tuesday, we set off to Arizona Speedworld Dragstrip to see what our off-the shelf GReddy TD06SH Twin Turbo Upgrade can do in the hands of a GReddy Master Tech. We were really please with the consistant 9sec. results.

The black R35, with the Type 06 Intercooler (customer car) with a stock engine posted a 9.84@148mph, and the white R35 with the Type 29 cross-flow Intercooler (SPE car) ran an very quick 9.62@149mph. Making them some of the quickest R35 GTRs in the world, to date (and charter members of our new GR-9 9sec Record Holders Club, who's next to join...)
(The cars were basically in a modified street trim, with full interiors and DOT approved tires.)

At the heart of the two builds is the very same GReddy TD06SH-20G Twin Turbo Upgrade and Intercooler Upgrades that is available though all GReddy GTR Master Tech Dealers. The cars so far make in the excess of 900 and 1000hp.

Stay tuned as we expect to hear more from SP Engineering and our other GTR Master Techs on more updates.
