  • ADDRESSING RUMORS - HANKOOK GTR Info

    Hankook GTR Information Release!

    by Steven Tran

    Hello everyone, my name is Steven Tran, I handle the Marketing / PR for Dynamic. After spending some time reading all the interesting rumors floating around the internet, I think itís about time we squash the rumors on the Drift GTR for next year.

    Letís start off with the first question thatís been floating around:

    What was the GTR we displayed at the SEMA Show?
    That GTR was strictly for Demo and Press purposes to announce our plans for the 2010 Formula Drift Season, it was basically created in order to visually announce the project and how the finished vehicle would potentially look. Instead of releasing a rendered photo of the potential finished car, we opted to take it a bit further and make a replica GTR in order to showcase what the final product will look like; it was our way to announce the project with a strong impact. During this time, the chassis we are using for competition was at our shop undergoing preparation and development for the upcoming season of Formula Drift. The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is traditionally used to release information regarding the projects for 2010, and many of the new projects for 2010 that attend the SEMA Show are projects in progress and not entirely finished.

    What motor will the GTR be using next year?
    Moment of truth for some of you, we are going to be running a special large stroked VQ mated with a G-Force 4-Speed Dog Box Transmission, specs on this motor will be released at a later time as R&D and testing gets finished. Currently the VR38 GTR Motor is still under development and we are currently working on developing the most advanced stroker system for that motor. Our power target for that motor is 1000+HP, so as developments on that motor progress we will keep you up to date. The VR38 platform is something we are considering to use in the future, but until we finish R&D and test the motor for competition we do not have an ETA when we will use the GTR VR38.

    Will the GTR be finished in time for Long Beach?
    We are on a set schedule and have been working diligently to finish the car, and everything is currently on schedule. We plan have the racing debut of the GTR at Long Beach, so unless some serious unforeseen situation occurs or an act of god, we will be in Long Beach with the GTR.


    If you are an Official Media Outlet and would like any information regarding the GTR, please feel free to give us a call at 949-457-1234 we'll gladly fill you in on any details of the project.
