STILLEN to Tackle the Spectre 341 Challenge Hillclimb

June 23, 2010

Steve Millen and Team STILLEN are gunning for a record this weekend. A record that has stood since 2002 for the Highway 341 hillclimb challenge in Virginia City, Nevada. This normally public road will be shutdown so competitors can stretch their legs up it’s 22 turns, 5.2 miles and over 1,200 feet of elevation. The current record belongs to Amir Rosenbaum in his Ferrari F40 and is 3m10s, but Steve wants to smash that and break the 3minute mark with the help of his tarmac rally prepped Nissan GT-R.

The car has been tweaked a little since racing last and now sports the gamut of GReddy intake and cooling products including hard pipe kits and intercoolers. They’re also planning on running more boost for a bit more top end horsepower.

Good luck guys and we look forward to seeing you kicking some prancing horsetail this weekend…
