We are proud to announce our newly designed R32 Skyline ducted headlight. Perfect for modified Skylines as the vent allows cold air into the engine bay and feeds straight to the pod filter. Highly beneficial for performance in such a tight engine bay that suffers from heat soak. Unlike other vented headlight ducts, it has a park and head light. The outer ring is the park light, and the inner light is headlight. Our design comes with plugs that connect straight to the factory wiring loom.
The 2017 Motorsports Mechanical GT-R Challenge and Tuners Edge Drag Battle has been run and down and was by far and our biggest and craziest event to date as it continues to grow each year. Over 80 competitors from around Australia, including Tasmania, Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, converged into the small town of Cootamundra to attack the airport runway. We saw almost every record tumble this year and over 20 cars ran sub 10-second passes. The action, the racing and the drama was an all time high and we had more cameras, and a helicopter, than ever to cover it all. This year’s coverage will truly be our best yet.
At the 2017 LiquiMoly Bathurst 12-Hour we followed the Hobson Motorsport team on their journey for the weekend. Their first time racing their recently acquired GT3 GT-Rs and their first Bathurst 12-hour event. The ups and downs, the drama and the emotion. Part 1 covered Friday’s practice and we got to know the team. Part 2 overs qualifying and the big race. Watch the video to check it out.
JET200 took bit of a break in 2016 with so much going on, but now, JET200 is back. First up, we made some clutch adjustments ( clutch itself was perfect) and gave the car a check over with new fluids, filters and an injector clean. A quick dyne check at CRD and it was off to Powercruise 66 for some fun. Watch the video to check it out.
Anthony Maatouk, owner of Maatouk’s Racing, has been pumping out mega powered GT-Rs for a few years now, so, when Anthony decides to finally build himself a street car, what does he build? This R34 GT-R is the answer. Custom Bodyworks covered the R34 with one of the best paint jobs we’ve ever seen. It’s set to get a custom interior and a 7-second street car package. Would you expect anything less from the VLGOD?
After a period of hibernation, Erubisu is back, but things have changed. Although we built the car as our own project car with support and help from our sponsors and friends, Gup from Powercruise owned the car. Well, the car has a new owner now, Shannon, the original owner of STKNG. Being a long time Maatouk’s customer, Shannon opted to have Anthony and his team continue where out left off. The mechanical side of the car has remained relatively unchanged for now but Shannon decide to give the car his own touches in the looks department. The green wrap is gone and replaced with red, but not before filling up the holes for the exhaust and putting a factory wing back on. Why fill the holes for the exhausts? Shannon has already registered the car and it will be street driven.
If you’re into GT-Rs or VL Commodores then no doubt you’ve heard of Maatouk’s Racing in Sydney, Australia. They have the world’s fastest RB powered car, VLGOD, as well as the world’s quickest street GT-R, KING32, which ran an incredible 7.70 seconds down the quarter mile.
There not doing things by halves over at Motorsports Mechanical in 2017. This car is being built for a customer and is a monster! Billet block with twin Precision high mount turbos, the same as Mick Mansour’s personal car, but those uses a sequential transmission instead of an auto. The goal is to take the manual record at Cootamudnra at this year’s GT-R Challenge.
After many years attending as a spectator, Matt Hanslow from Redsun Motorsport has decided to get off the bench and into the game for the 2017 Tuners Edge Drag Battle. Not only will he brining cars, including his own, but this year Redsun Motorsport is sponsoring the 4CYL 2WD category, fitting, considering the cars they are brining and specialising.
Redsun Motorsport have worked on alms all of the Motive Garage project cars at one stage or another and JET200 is currently undergoing some further work and upgrades at the shop, preparing to lower lap times in 2017.
Check to the video below to find out more about Redsun Motorsport, what they specialise in and what they are bringing to the 2017 Tuners Edge Drag Battle at Cootamundra Aiport.

Andrew has built, owned and driven some pretty cool stuff since starting Motive DVD, but being thrown the key’s to Glen’s mental R32 Skyline GT-R certainly is a highlight. Also a great chance to try out PPG’s sequential transmission for GT-R. What was it like? Have to watch video to find out.
Looking a little better with gold wheel and matching panels, our Project Budget Track Hack hit the track again, but sporting some new tyres this time. We were meant to do our tyre test at Wakefield first, but the weatherman didn’t agree with us, so that video is coming soon. The Whiteline Twilight Rally Sprint is held at Sydney Dragway and is some of the most fun you can have in a car. Check out the video to see why and how our little bargain went.
This month’s in the build feature is on a customers R33 GT-R. The brief was to build a true 9-second street car with all the mod cons, modern technology and reliability. Watch the video for a closer look.

They started with high powered Evos and now have added their R35 GT-R to the leaderboards coming 4th in 2016, and taking to the Ultimate Street Car award. In 2017 they return as event sponsor again, and also, increasing the field and range of cars they are bringing. Check to the workshop preview video below to find out more:

Check out the video below:
Although Build2Race have been quiet in terms of advertising and social media, behind the scenes they have been busy churning out high powered street cars and their workshop is always n the go. Word of mouth helped them grow but now they are looking to take things even further. A look at the photos below will show you just how serious the guys at Build2Race are.
