Nissan takes land speed record at Bonneville

Yesterday Papakura engine guru Reg Cook set the 2.0 litre and under standard production record on the famed salt flats at Bonneville posting 168MPH on his first run, 12MPH faster than the current record of 158MPH this was then backed up the very next morning with a 171Mph
the car, a Nissan NX Coupe.
Not bad for an old boy ;D
the gearbox is currently being removed to allow for higher gear ratios and therefore hopefully more speed. he is also competing in the modified class as well,
will try to keep you all posted on updates

not bad for some good old boys from new zealand
sr20ve engine, vvl deleted and running roller rockers etc

Here is some in-car from the run this morning. The black markers are quarter miles, and the Orange ones, the mile markers. You’ll hear he’s in top gear just before the 1 mile mark, and pulling from 7500RPM to nearly 9000RPM over the two mile timed stretch.

Some more news from bonneville,
i will just cut and paste some of the good bits.

At 6.55pm today we made a 180mph run down the strip, and more important than that… We ran an average speed between mile marker 2 and the 2 and a quarter mile marker of 175mph. This means we are now allowed to run on a longer track and try and gain speed over a longer distance. So tomorrow – 2 more runs, on the long track in the original body kit to try and push that pro-record even further out of reach.
Tomorrow is the last day on the salt. Long track, and an early attempt at qualifying. Straight to impound and at noon they shut the tracks. We then have one hour to work on the car, and then back out we go to try and back up the run. Fingers crossed we can “do some more damage” as we’ve already been accused of this week J
Then it’s pack up – try to leave most of the salt behind and home to the motel before we all start the long trek home.
Finally – my personal aim over here is to capture data log evidence of our engine running 10,000RPM.. Today I got a 9,975RPM – nearly there

AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cams in this car are actually sr20de cams , even though the engine is a ve,
With lots of R&D and time and money , the sr20ve ( P12 primera engine ) was converted to run roller rockers with roller rocker cams with large duration, as one of the limiting factors of the ve engine is the ability to Run large enough cams in their current configuration,definately not for the ordinary daily driver !!

All i can tell you is that they are custom, and that lots of time and money went into this, thats why some things need to remain secret !!
sorry but the person that owns the car runs a motorsport business and information like this is not free and commercially sensitive
