An All Wheel Drive Burnout In A GT-R
June 9th, 2017
Traditional burnouts aren’t typically done in all-wheel-drive vehicles. But Taylor Steffes took her Nissan GT-R to the people over at Hoonigan and they got creative with it.
MotorAuthority reports the car has about 800 horsepower on E85 and has upgraded fuel injectors, a flex kit and lots of other mods to produce more power on the already quick car. Since the GT-R isn’t known for awesome burnouts, even with water under the tires to keep things slick, here’s how they got it to work…they strapped it to a truck. And although the GT-R is smart enough to stop the clutch system from overheating and cuts the power, with some more water on the rear wheels and this Nissan’s tires were smoking in no time.
This Sunday starting at 9am on Spike Marc and Tommy plug a monster bowtie powerplant into the newly painted Chevelle Project, and the thousand plus horsepower “Highwayman” Mercury finally gets a chance to stretch her legs.
Then on PowerNation Katie’s guest is Dan Muldowney, the co-founder of Race-Gas, a product you’ve seen used a lot on Engine Power. Dan is an avid racer and he’ll talk about why and how they created Race-Gas to solve problems he experienced at the track. He’ll also hint at some new products coming down the pike. So make sure you tune in.
