Switzer Goliath Sets Standing Mile Top Speed Record



At the Russian Unlim 500+ Training Day, a Switzer Goliath GT-R set a new top speed world record- trapping 402.23 kmh (249.9 mph) in the standing mile. Elapsed time was 22.602 seconds. Impressively, the Goliath was a customer driven GT-R running a Switzer 3.8L motor with factory standard gear ratios. See below for the video, time slip and dyno sheet.

N0 - and I am interested ot know how they broke the "238 MPH barrier" due to gearing limitations. RPM has been suggested and that would make sense...
That's outstanding
More info that I just received:

-Car is running standard gear ratios. No taller gearing.
-This is a customer owned and driven Goliath (no shop ringer here), on 20" R888s. Race gas only, no ethanol.
-Full interior other than race seats and seat belts.
-Switzer had to use Syvecs to tune very specifically around the clutches because they were slipping during gear changes due to being overpowered. Based on the data they acquired from the runs, if the clutches would have held properly, this car would've also broken the GT-R and Lambo E.T. records.
-This car's same 3.8 engine has now completed 4 Moscow Unlimiteds, including the (6) 245+ mph runs it made today, and is still running strong.
-Goliath #2 is almost done and will be tested and delivered to the customer very soon.
Probably using the Top Secret 0.709 6th gear :thumbsup:
