Brass noted that despite a compressed timeline to finish the new cars, they benefit from an already solid platform with the GT-R.

"Many of the cars in the series have serious modifications to the engines and drivelines from the stock vehicles," Brass said. "The beauty of the GT-R is that it is an amazing platform to start with and we are able to utilize all of the stock internal components and drivetrain. With the exception of some of the approved series aerodynamic items and an effort to bring the car down to a competitive weight, the car will remain incredibly stock compared to most of our competition."
Love it!

From the moment the venerable Nissan GT-R was introduced to the world in 2008, it was hailed as one of the most potent production cars ever to hit the pavement. Developed and groomed on the most demanding racetrack on the planet, the Nordschleife at the Nürburgring, the GT-R set lap times so impressive that they shocked the automotive community. For the 2010 race season, Nissan has decided to unleash the GT-R's potential as a race machine, waging war in three different series on four continents Including FIA GT Super GT and World Challenge.....

In North America, Nissan will team up with Brass Monkey Racing to contest the World Challenge GT Championship, where two specially-prepped GT-Rs will vie for the Manufacturers and Drivers Championships. And speaking of drivers, the cars will be piloted by two-time series race winner Tony Rivera and Steve Ott. The GT-Rs will debut in St. Petersburg on March 26-28.

"We'are very excited to bring such an iconic car to the North American professional racing scene," A.J. Brass, team owner of the Brass Monkey Racing, said. "We look forward to bringing an entirely new platform to World Challenge

just met those guys today at the track, really nice people. They told me today was the first time that they ever launched the car, and with all the things done to the car it still weighs 3400 pounds

which hood is that? looks like GTC-R hood but doesnt have the intakes, why doesnt it have the naca ducts on the hood? front lip looks like autoselect without the brake ducting and the wider fenders (which are not wide enough for those wheels) look like password:jdm, dunno tho. not to into that wing but wow its huge.

regardless its good to see another R35 in motorsports! lets hope to see some major wins this year!

"The hood is a Seibon as is the front splitter. The wheels are CCW C-10 18 x 12 with 335 Toyo R888 all the way around. Shocks are Penske, engine is bone stock even the air filters, running Cobb AP

what are the dangers of not having those naca ducts? and is fitment really bad or is that just me? also its a GTC first to have those vents, it figures seibon would steel that design too.

EDIT: THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG! THIS CAR IS BEING BUILT FOR WORLD CHALLENGE GT!

A majority of our business here at AMS is building completely prepared race cars for our customers. We campaign our own very successful race team and based on those efforts/merrits we are able to provide very capable and proven race cars to our customers.

A while back we had a couple of customers work with us to build two very nice EVO track cars:
A blue EVO IX which had a very extensive build: http://www.amsperformance.com/blue_demon.php
and A silver EVO X that got much of the same treatment: http://www.amsperformance.com/s_bullet.php

Well these two are at it again and this time they want to build a GT-R. Just like the two EVO's prior they went and bought a BRAND NEW GT-R from the dealer and sent it over to us to work our magic. This car came to us with a whopping 74 miles on it.

Today we began the tear down process on this car. The slated parts lists has some mild but effective power upgrades but just AMAZING suspension, brake and chassis work!

We plan on doing a custom exhaust to the car to optimize weight savings along with some trans cooling and a Custom AMS tuned Cobb AP to increase the power.

That is where the easy stuff ends. Along with that a very comprehensive Roll cage and suspension and brake setup will go into the car. The best of the best will be used on this build. Look for some REALLY unique and professional grade components to make their way into this car. We really hope to break some new ground in the GT-R world with this build and bring some great suspension, weight reduction and chassis ideas to the GT-R community.

Stay Tuned!

Here are some pictures of how the car looked after it was unloaded from the transport:
