3.33 Seconds : 60 - 130 MPH : Switzer R1KX

R1KX engine bay. Over 1400 hp

3.33 seconds is a fairly short amount of time. What can you do in 3.33 seconds? This Switzer R1KX Nissan GT-R can accelerate from 60 miles per hour to 130 miles per hour. Why 60-130mph as a measure? It grows from the high horsepower rear wheel drive cars that have problems getting off the line. It really gained popularity in the Toyota Supra and Porsche 911 world. The Supra guys being big turbo and traction limited. The Porsche guys being afraid to launch their cars. It has become a new standard, like 0-60 mph, or quarter mile time.  For some reason, guys in the UK go for a 30-130mph time, and some other guys like to list the 100-150. Always chasing those numbers... As far as record keeping for "street" cars as timed by a V-Box, this is a new record.

To go along with the 3.33 60-130 time, the Switzer tuned beast did a 9.01@163.7 mph quarter mile. The 0-60 mph run according to the V-Box was 2.41 seconds.
