Rob Whyte was pushing hard at Round 2 of the Just Car Insurance Australian Drifting GP and pushed a little too hard in his re-run against Josh Botcher in the Top-8.
JET200 was upgraded to Version 4.1 this year and we headed to the 2015 Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge with one goal in mind. To re-set the Open Class S-Chassis Record. See what happened behind the scenes and if we did it. Don’t forget to subscribe to our Youtube Channel
If you havn’t already noticed, we are building a joint project car with Powercruise, and it is rather serious. How about a VR38 powered R34 GT-R, retaining 4WD and channeling over 1200hp though a 6-speed sequential gearbox. Sound cool? Then watch the first build video to find out more.

The 2015 Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge was simply mental! Everywhere you looked there was something awesome, from world class time attack cars, mental drift cars, old school legends, and drag monsters on track, to hot girls, trade stands, mad street cars and cool things to see and buy off track. As usual, we were there to soak it all up, race our cars and film the best action both on track, in the pits and behind the scenes.
Motive DVD 26 is the 2015 WTAC Specila Edition and we will have full coverage of the event, with multiple cameras on track, interviews and action in the pits, heaps of in-car cameras and all the off tracc action. we also follow our project car JET200 and how we went on the way to s-chassis record setting.
Here it is. The winning lap from the Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge. 1:23.777 in the Tilton Interiors Evo with Garth Walden at the wheel.
A new record to boot and a three-peat!
We have a three-peat feature coming out later this week and even more coverage in Motive DVD 26 which you can pre-order now here: CLICK HERE

We went to the 2015 World Time Attack Challenge with one goal, and one goal only, to break the current S-Chassis record in Open Class, which was held by the Sutton Brothers in their S15 from when they competed in Open Class in 2013 (under the old rules mind you) with a 1:34.275. Why is this record so important to us? We’ve wanted JET200 to stay a true Silvia that other Silvia owners can learn from, which the Open Class rules enforces.
JET200 had played dormant since last years event, and we only started work on the car 9 days before the event! We had to work hard on the Friday to get the car right ready for Saturday morning’s attempt and the hard work and all nighters paid off, with a 1:33798!
There is so much to the story and so many people to thank, and it’s all coming soon in a JET200 WTAC15 Documentary and some more Motive Garage features. Stay tuned.

Yeah, yeah. We know. Motive DVD is meant to be about performance imports. Don’t worry, it is still our focus, but there is nothing wrong with enjoying all sorts of cars. If its good, its good. Simple as that. We’re first to admit we have never liked Commodores until the VF was released, and thanks to Holden Australia, we’ve spent a lot of time in them, more specifically the SS range of VF Commodore. We have especially enjoyed the SSV Redline and Craig Lowndes edition, with Brembo brakes and improved suspension. You would be surprised how fun they really are. Want proof? Watch this video:
When you need to deliver one of Nissan’s greatest engines of all time to Albins Transmission in Ballarat, what car do you use? A Holden of course. Once again, we would like to thank Holden Australia for supplying us with a support vehicle for the weekend of Round 1 of the Just Car Insurance Australian Drifting GP.
The turbo-diesel Colorado has proven to be a great support vehicle in 2015, regularly towing cars and equipment with ease and this leather equipped crew-cab model was more of the same. It was used for staff and equipment transport throughout the weekend of ADGP and to deliver a VR38 engine to Albins Transmission in Ballarat so they can start development of the VR38 bell housing. The Colorado gave us the best of both worlds, being a comfortable troop hauler and a competent load carrier.
Our RB26 Twins vs Single Mythbusted video has caused quite a bit of controversy. Many leading tuning shops, and even Garrett themselves, have praised the video for being one of the most comprehensive and well done turbo comparisons ever done. However, there are still people who want to start arguments and make some rather silly accusations. There are also plenty of legitimate questions being asked as well, so, we thought we would put together this “FAQAS”, or, Frequently Asked Questions and Statements, and go through each one in more detail to help put the arguments to bed.
We have just sent out all of the pre-orders for Motive DVD #25! We now have stock of both DVD and Blu Ray/DVD double packs. please note Blu Rays are done in small batches, so if we sell out of this batch another batch will take approx 5 days.
So after hearing the latest song from Disturbed?, we got pumped up and made an intro specifically for the Cinema Screening. Obviously can’t use it in the actual DVD as it is a commercial track. Motive DVD #25 is in stock and ready to ship!
Motive DVD’s Just Car Insurance Drag Battle, held every year at Cootamundra Aiport, attracts the toughest street cars in Australia. Tough cars means tough engine bays, so check out the 4-cylinder all wheel drives from the event. This one is for the Evo and WRX fans.
