Texas Mile Results and Pictures

Several members from the NAGTROC forums took their R35’s and other cars out to the Texas Mile event this last weekend.  The Texas mile is a standing start mile with terminal velocity measured at the end of that mile.
The Texas Mile has grown rapidly since our inaugural event in October 2003. Participants come from all edges of the United States, Canada and Mexico to test themselves and their motorized equipment on the fastest and most challenging 1-mile track in the world. They achieve their top speed in 1-Mile and shut down in a 1/2-Mile. This bi-annual Motorsports Festival is created for performance enthusiast - Welcoming Motorcycles, Performance Street Cars, Race Cars and Land Speed Racers.
AMS took out their 9 second R35, and it ran as quick as 195 mph. They said it was laying over in 5th and 6th gear , and not accelerating as it should have.  Without a roll bar, they were only allowed two passes over 190mph.
The first pass in the GT-R resulted in 195 mph. Martin (driver) came back stating the car was running excessively rich in 5th and 6th gear which pretty much killed any acceleration in those gears. The following day Eric Jones went out to try one more time. With no hardware for tuning adjustments at the track and no way to check for boost leaks we were not optimistic but we thought we would give it one more shot before we packed up for the weekend. The car came out like a bat out of hell, spinning the tires through first and second. It was well on its way to a 200mph pass but again in 6th gear the GT-R ran rich and really hurt its acceleration. That run was clocked at a 193. At this point we were asked not to run again due to a lack of proper safety equipment.

The Jotech GT-R went 193.2 mph, they had a bit of a pucker moment as they lost a rear tire in the process. Also without a roll bar , they could only do two runs.
The quickest R35 GT-R pass of the weekend was the Boost Logic R35 GT-R with a 203.2 mph standing mile pass. Check out the video.
