Your crazy John!

Do I predict the first nagtroc GT-R with all forged internals? Maybe this is a good thing, now you can build a motor that can handle 1000hp, purpose build for drag racing and find the limits of that new gear set. :)

We're waiting for a tow truck at the track now.

Not exactly the way I wanted to end the night.

I'll post the explosion-in-all-it's-glory video later.

Just for kicks you should take the car (as it is) to your nearest Nissan dealer and demand Warranty servicing.

OMG!!!!!! :lmfao: That royally bites a pretty big one. Trying to look at the positive side...at least you can go ahead and jump in to some forged hardware and sleeves. BIG HP is in the VERY near future for Samurai Speed!!!!!!! :)

Did you guys use a progressive controller like the NOS Launcher or was it manual switch ?

:) I totally forgot I was supposed to meet some people at the track tonight until I just saw a post about this on another site. Sorry to hear about the car. Hopefully you will have it rebuilt better and faster in no time.

We found the limits of the GT-R's transmission and now we've found the limits of the engine.

With all due respect, I don't think this is a very accurate statement. As you know, nitrous has many variables to consider during it's application that pure air/boost do not. I would guess that your Air fuel ratios, for some reason, were way out of wack and you put a hole in a piston. Of course I wasn't there to see the bang but the fact that tuners are making more HP than your set up and haven't blown an engine around a road course would lead me to think that the NOS set up alone was the culperate. (Unless you twisted the crank from the TQ at launch, which I doubt)
no malice, I just don't believe that your statement "found the limits of the engine" is entirely accurate given the circumstances.
Peace out :)
