There are man types of automobiles represented at Boneville’s annual speed trials.
So it was very fortunate that Rod Chong from Speedhunters managed to capture this ruby of a Nissan S-chassis hidden amongst mountains of salt.
There are a few fast 240SXs in the world, the platform has been around for quite some time and tuners have managed to extract the most from some of the Nissan engineering department’s best work.
There is one particular example that comes to mind.
The first is the Japanese equivalent of a funny car, the HKS Drag 180SX, chosen for its sleek aerodynamic body the performance specialists paired it with and RB26DETT from the Nissan Skyline GT-R.
It competed in Japan’s “Pro Stock” class where it won the Big End Drag Racing Series for two years in a row.
The purpose built racecar ran a 7.184 @ 190.62 MPH at New Jersey’s Englishtown Raceway Park.
