With the recent release of the Nissan M35 Hybrid could this drivetrain be incorporated into the GT-R? Read more about it over here: Hybrid GTR

If hybrid technology isn’t in the cards for Nissan’s supercar maybe alternate fuels are. Could this 900hp beast be a step in the right direction? 🙂 Read more here and watch the YouTube video!

Bring your Nissan/Datsun to Sunnyvale Nissan this Friday evening! Details below:

!ZCG will NOT be going to the Drags today due to high temperatures!

The Z Car Garage Drag Racing Series continues for 2010 with the 4th event tomorrow, Wed 8/25. Z Car Garage ( is hosting a drag competition for all-years Nissans and Datsuns at Sears Point (Infineon) Raceway. Come join us for a few nights of fun and Z-ing “in a straight line”. Walt (Fowlman) won the last series in his supercharged 350Z. The first one was April 7th, and we’ll be continuing through November 11th.

Generally, the Wednesday Night Drags events are held at Sears Point Raceway on most Wednesday nights during the year. The gates open at 3:30 and racing is from 5-10pm. One typically gets a few practice (non-competitive) runs in before the racing starts assuming you get there early. All the information you need about the track and racing itself is located here:…y_night_drags/

1st Place: One Pair of New BF Goodrich Drag Radials courtesy of Z Car Garage
2nd Place: $100.00 Gift Certificate at Z Car Garage

Sears Point Wednesday events are bracket racing. If you show up early, each driver gets 4 or 5 practice runs before the sessions begin.

1 point: Once the sessions begin, each time you advance
(Sears Point staff puts a smiley face on your slip), you get one point. The goal is to NOT run against each other until absolutely necessary (i.e. everyone stages in the same lane until the final brackets)

3 points: Runner-up (loss in the finals) – trophy awarded

5 points: Winner of class – trophy awarded

Points are only valid on the dates ZCG goes to Infineon (4/7, 6/2, July, August, September, October, possibly November). I’ll update this post as we set the dates for future months.

All competitors must sign waiver @ Z Car Garage before entering competition (or sign at track and give to Rob).

So put your excuses to rest and join us for the 4th event TOMORROW 8/25/10!!!
