“We finally get a really good look into the 2010 FIA GT1 World Championship car.

Prototypes, early production models and a bunch of buzz; we’ve seen and heard it all but finally we get to see some bonafied pictures and read about actual specs. 600hp and 479 lb.-ft of torque from a N/A 5.5L V8 (although restricted) will thrust the 2755 lb. GT1 Nissan towards the world championship for 2010. Though based on the road going GT-R, the two share little in common apart from looks, the basic monocoque and McPherson struts at front and double wishbone in back.

The all-wheel drive system has been replaced for a rear-wheel setup and sequential 6-speed gearbox. Braking will be ceramic composite, while the outside features side exhaust, new rear wing, vents and ducts galore.

No word on drivers yet but when they’re announced we’ll send them your way.”

COBB AccessTUNER Pro for Nissan GT-R R35

COBB Tuning announces the release of AccessTUNER Pro v1.7 for the Nissan GT-R R35. This release marks the world’s first publicly available tuning software to create custom ECU calibrations for the extremely popular Nissan GT-R. Using AccessTUNER Pro v1.7, professional engine tuners can configure the GT-R ECU to extract maximum power from a given set of performance modifications. Professional engine tuners can create custom calibrations for vehicles with aftermarket intakes, exhausts, turbos, cams or any combination of performance modifications. The calibration is then flashed to the ECU via the AccessPORT handheld ECU flashing device, providing impressive power gains with all of the drive-ability and sophistication inherent in the OEM ECU.

AccessTUNER Pro puts control of vital engine parameters into the hands of the professional engine tuner, such as intake and exhaust cam timing, fuel, ignition, boost, boost limiter, engine rev limiter and speed limiter. Customizable data monitors let the tuner choose which channels are monitored to see how changes impact the behavior of the engine. The built-in datalogging capability captures data from multiple channels across the entire rev-range, allowing detailed data analysis after a dynamometer test. 3-D graphical mapping gives the tuner a comprehensive view of engine behavior across three axes to evaluate where performance can be maximized.

AccessTUNER Pro v1.7 is supported on Windows XP and Windows Vista 32-bit operating systems. The USDM 2009 GT-R and JDM 2008 GT-R are currently supported.
