Time Lapse Engine Build : Cobb Time Attack R35

Cobb R35 Getting it

Cobb Tuning has been competing in the Redline Time Attack with their R35 this year. The car runs in the Modified class and won the modified class, and overall at New Jersey Motorsports park, after losing an engine at Buttonwillow.  After Buttonwillow the team replaced the expired engine with one from a wrecked street car.  They had a few issues at New Jersey, but not enough for them not to take the overall win.

At Las Vegas some issues from the wrecked street car engine reared their head, and the team decided to build the engine.  The next round of Redline Time Attack is at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Ca this weekend, May 29-30th.

Source : Cobb Blog via GTRBlog

The Redline Time Attack is going to be covered Live Streaming in a partnership with the guys at Owle. I was browsing some sites yesterday, and saw this neat add on for the iPhone. Its a better lens/microphone/holding system for the iPhone that will give you good quality video for only $129. They will have up to a dozen cameras streaming at the same time, with some of them inside or on cars. John Naderi and Kerryann De La Cruz will also be in the paddock doing live interviews.

Launch Control 3.0 ?

 warranty[1]

There has been much ado about launch control on the R35 Nissan GT-R.  First there was the hidden, not so well hidden trick of the setup switches in R R Off.  This was called LC1. In RR Off the cars would hold 4500 rpms for a launch. This caused a few warranty issues with people abusing the system and breaking transmissions. Lawsuits, and arguing later brought about the next version of launch control.

The launch control system was revised with what was referred to as LC2.  The setup switches would need to be in RRR, and the car would be able to be held at 3000 rpms for a launch in either automatic or manual mode.

Now some people with 2011 Nissan GT-R’s are reporting that they need to have the cars in RRR, and manual mode, and they get launch rpm of 3300 rpms. A recent 2011 Nissan GT-R tested by Road and Track Magazine did clock a 3.3 second 0-60 time, which was faster than the ZR1 or new PDK equipped 997 Porsche.

The ZR1 at 11.5@128.7 mph, showing a big top end charge with some traction issues. The all wheel drive Porsche did a 11.7@121.8, the GT-R ran an 11.6@120.4 mph showing it to be a healthy GT-R.  Maybe the 2011 makes more than 5 hp more than the previous years ?

It sounds like Nissan is refining and tuning the launch control in the Nissan GT-R. It will be interesting to see what they do with launch control with the 2012 Nissan GT-R, that is rumored to get more than 500 hp.

Bugatti Veyron vs Nissan GT-R

Veyron vs GT-R video

Heavy weight battle right here. 16 cylinders, 4 turbos, 1001 hp, and all wheel drive vs 6 cylinders, 2 turbos , and 720 hp. Both cars have DSG(dual shaft gearboxes). The Bugatti has 7 gears, the GT-R has 6. Over a million dollars, to $85k stock, probably around $105k modified. Is the Nissan GT-R 1/10th of the car, or is the Veyron 10 times the car ? No matter how you cut it the Bugatti is an amazing car.

Nissan GT-R’s at One Lap of America

 

onelapday1---09

onelapday1---37

This year there are two Nissan GT-R’s competing in the One Lap of America.  Last year the Continental sponsored Cannonball GT-R won overall  . This year Catesby Jones decided to pick up a 2010 GT-R to run in the event, with Forged Performance preparing the car for the event.  Follow the Catesby Jones GT-R here. Follow the Cannonball GT-R here.

The Tire Rack One Lap of America is the toughest 8 days of racing featuring the fastest street-legal cars on America's most challenging racetracks! Seasoned One Lap of America contender Catesby Jones who finished 3rd place overall last year decided to up the ante this year. Catesby went out and bought a beautiful white 2010 Nissan GT-R. We put our heads together and come up with a game plan for the project. The plan was to drop of his car brand new car at Forged Performance and pick it up a week later on the way to One Lap of America ready to compete! We didn't have a lot of time for this build so we knew we had to act fast. We ordered all the parts and immediately started going to work.

At the first event, the wet skidpad,  the 2009 winner Cannonball GT-R dominated with a 0.962 G average, followed by a 0.911 for the Catesby GT-R.  The one to watch Leh Keen in the Porsche GT2 came in 8th place with a 0.853 average.

The first roadcourse the Cannonballers hit was Road America.  Sliding into a 7:49.824 was Leh Keen in the Porsche GT2, followed by the Cannoball GT-R with a 7:52.457. The Catesby GT-R coming in 4th with a 7:55.987.

 

At Road America #2, again Leh Keen in the GT2 came in first with a 4:56.563 followed by the Catesby GT-R with a 4:59.720. The Cannonball GT-R came in 5th place at this event with a 5:05.702.

28609_388114232126_505642126_435490

The above picture is usually not a good sign, and it was not for the returning champion. The word is a loss of compression in one cylinder, and a drop out from the event.

28609_388114087126_505642126_435489

After Road America the Cannonballers transited to the Mid America Motorplex for their next two events starting at 8:30 am on Sunday May 2nd. At Mid America Motorplex, the GT2 again dominated with a 4:54.354 followed by the GT-R with a 5:01.400. During the 2nd round the GT2 slowed a little to a 4:54.905, and the GT-R improved to a 4:58.590 putting them 1-2 yet again.

nissan-gt-r-side-on-track

On Monday at Hallet, it was again the Porsche GT2 with a 4:11.014 in first,with the Catesby GT-R in 3rd 0.7 behind the 2nd place Corvette. In the 2nd Hallet event, the Porsche stayed firm in first with the GT-R this time 1 second in front of the Corvette with a 4:12.442.  After Hallet the group transited to Tulsa Dragway for drag racing and bracket racing. The quickest time was thrown down by Porsche 911(997)turbo with PDK that clocked a 10.904 1/4.  Coming in second was the Catesby GT-R with an 11.483.  The Porsche GT2 rolled into 5th place with a 11.629.  It would be interesting to see the mph that these cars ran for the ET’s. ET is how well you get the power to the ground, MPH shows the power and weight of the cars.   Bracket racing is bracket racing. I call it boring. A Honda Civic win. The GT-R and GT2 both went out in the same round finishing 6th.

21-one-lap-part-deux

After all the fun of bracket racing, the group headed to Gateway International for another two time trials. This sounds like a broken record, but Leh Keen in the GT2 finished in first with a 3:24.211, just 1.7 seconds back was Catesby in the GT-R with a 3:25.936. During the second time trial, the GT2 and GT-R both improved their times with the GT-R nudging closer in time, but still in 2nd place.  3:22.754 for the GT2, and a 3.23.751 for the GT-R.

That concludes the fun thus far.  Current Results with seven events left, eleven events completed.

ZR1 vs 911TT vs GT-R : Road and Track Magazine

ct-culture-clash-004_gallery_image_large

The big books love the comparison tests that pit some of the big dogs against one another to pick an overall “winner”.  Road and Track Magazine in the  June 2010 issue pits the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 , the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo, and the 2011 Nissan GT-R in a road and track test. Funny how that works out.  For the track they went to Spring Mountain Ranch in Pahrump , Nevada . In the last comparison test they did with the Z06, 911, and the Nissan GT-R they declared the Nissan GT-R to be the King, this time outcomes are different, but really more of the same.

Two years ago, we pitted the then-new Nissan GT-R against the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 Turbo (May 2008). The results astounded us: The all-wheel-drive, twin-turbocharged GT-R spanked its two better-known rivals, especially at the Buttonwillow racetrack, where the GT-R was some 5 seconds per lap quicker.

The 2011 Nissan GT-R carries just a few changes from the 2009 model.Some minor suspension, launch control, and a 5 hp bump are the significant performance differences. The 2010 Porsche Turbo gets a new 500hp direct injection powerplant. The 2010  ZR1 is still 638 hp, 3365 lbs, and carbon ceramic braked $100k plus Corvette.

ct-culture-clash-002_gallery_image_large

At the track , the quickest time was laid down by the ZR1 with a  1:20.1 , eight tenths of a second behind the ZR1 was the GT-R with a 1.20.9, and bringing up the rear was the Porsche with a 1:21.3. 

0-60 Times for the cars were 3.5 seconds each for the ‘vette and the P car. The GT-R clocking a 3.3 second sprint to 60 mph. In the quarter mile the cars were all within two tenths. The ZR1 at 11.5@128.7 mph, showing a big top end charge with some traction issues. The all wheel drive Porsche did a 11.7@121.8, the GT-R ran an 11.6@120.4 mph showing it to be a healthy GT-R.  Maybe the 2011 makes more than 5 hp more than the previous years ?

In the end they pick the Porsche 911 turbo to be the winner (price independent), followed by the ZR1, then the GT-R. By their scale the GT-R behind the ZR1 by two tenths of a point, the P car winning by two points. However when you factor in the $121k ZR1 , the $149k 911 , and the $85K GT-R prices as tested the Nissan GT-R becomes the clear winner.

Throw a few thousand dollars in modifications at the Nissan GT-R, like a Cobb Access Port and the Nissan GT-R will get even quicker.  Although in this test, the GT-R actually came out on top in the Performance testing with 196.9 points compared to 195.3, and 194.7 for the ZR1 and 911 TT.

Head over to Road and Track to check out the videos of the comparison test.
