GTC 750R Demo Car Shows Off GTC’s New Parts Lineup

July 10th, 2010

UK based tuner GTC Racing has been making a great name for itself with GT-R tuning and original parts since launch and the latest iteration of the combined knowledge and hardware is the GTC750R GT-R. The team have put it through it’s paces on the dyno and on the track. The result is a GT-R that is hypercar quick with looks to match.

The car features a lengthy list of modifications with some of the highlights being:

  • GTC 90mm Titan Exhaust with GTC Titan 90mm Y-Pipe
  • GTC 80 mm Zircotech coated de-cat front pipes
  • Hybid IHI/Garret GT30 ball bearing turbos
  • Garret Wastegate Actuators
  • 1000cc ID Injectors
  • GTC 80mm MAF pipes (prototypes) – w/ HPX MAF sensors
  • Twin 255 lt fuel pumps w/ upgraded fuel lines
  • GTC Marston Core Intercooler w/80mm hard pipe kit (no BOVs)
  • GTC Radiator
  • GTC 14 plate clutch system & steel plates & shims
  • Prototype gearbox cooler (water type)
  • Alloy extended gearbox oil pan
  • Alloy engine sump
  • COBB Tuning AccessPORT w/GTC custom tune

With those mods, and a good driver, it reeled off a 10.3 @ 139 mph during it’s shake down testing. The guys report that they have cracked the GT-R’s infamous launch control systems and can now raise the ECM’s launch rev limit to wherever is most optimal. Given that, we expect to see an interesting few runs coming up soon both from GTC and from abroad.

For more information on the latest range of GTC products for the GT-R, head over to the GTC-R website, give them a call or check out their discussion thread over on the NAGTROC forums.
