Samurai Speed Nissan GT-R Shreds Transmission At Drag Strip

According to the drag strip addicts at Dragtimes, the Samurai Speed Nissan GT-R clicks off quarter-mile times around 10.5 seconds at 128 MPH. Unfortunately, this run ended with a grenaded transmission.

In a GT-R versus GT-R race, with launch controlled software at the ready, the Samurai Speed transmission gives up the ghost when the Christmas tree goes green. According to the driver, it sounded like a "bunch of metal dominoes in a line and Tiger Woods came by and hit them with his driver." Ouch. We're betting those boys voided their warranty a looooooooong time ago. [DragTimes]

Ash78, voting early and often

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound

He steps on the gas and holds the brake down

Helpless people just stand and look

Scream bug-eyed as his tranny cooks

He hooks up the tires but then he backs down

As he cries through the screeches of the shredding sound

Oh, no, they say he's got to go

Go, go, Godzilla, yeah
