There are quite a few prominent clubs here in sunny Queensland Australia, but only a few stand tall above the rest in terms of a car roster. In that select few are the two rival clubs of Most Wanted and High Rollers; both of which have the pleasure of saying they have some of the toughest cars wearing their insignia. But, as of late, Club High Rollers (CHR) has been on the uprise, and I was fortunate enough to be invited to one of their famous Dyno Days.

Now, I say ‘famous’ as it is a well known fact that big numbers are always produced and for this day, some of the biggest and baddest cars turned out to show what they were all about. They say it is all about having the connections, and being good friends with some of the High Rollers members definitely has its benefits in terms of access to out-right car porn. The Dyno Day was held at the infamous Aussie GTR tuner Godzilla Motor sport which plays host to not only the second fastest GTR in the world (which runs a 7.84sec pass) but also the fastest low mount twin turbo GTR in Australia with a 9.8sec pass. And, of course, Godzilla Motorsport is now home to the mentalist RH9 R34 GTR which not only ran a 9.73sec pass in street trim, but managed to push out 1250awhp on C16 race fuel, that is just over 1400hp at the engine, and close to 1200hp on pump fuel. So to say Godzilla Motorsport (GM) know what they are doing is an understatement.

Upon arrival to GM with the train of CHR cars behind me, it was obvious by the idols of each car that today was going to be something special, with all kinds of GTRs, a Supra, Evo’s and some older Datsuns waiting to slowly creep into the quite steep entrance. Straight away, the first entrant was strapping onto the Dyno getting ready to punch out some numbers, and this would be the layout for the next few hours; chatting about all things cars and sussing out everyone’s rides in between each set up.

When you first set your eyes upon the club cars in attendance, there are some that just make you gasp starting with a ‘F’ and ending with an ‘arrrrrkkkkk’. The standouts were Adam’s ‘FATGTR’ R32 rolling on some super stretched Work Meister’s and supporting a T51r and full Tomei 2.7l stroker kit. The noise of the T51r spooling is easily up there with one of the worlds best car noises. The ‘RH9’ R34 with those awfully expensive 20×10″ GTC’s (which would probably cost somewhere around $9000AUD)but the car that stole my heart was easily matched by Justin’s gorgeous R32 ‘DARE YA’, wearing a deep dark blue paint matched with some dead sexy SSR Type C’s. Not only does it look good, but it also managed to push out 498rwhp. Stay tuned for an upcoming feature on it. A special mention must go to Tess with the ‘080OST’ R32 GTS supporting a full dog engagement gear box and helical cut gears. The noise it made was about as good as it gets, and the clunking through gears was euphoria to my ears. Also, being a car driven by a girl, 505rwhp is pretty intense. Who said women can’t drive?

As with every dyno day there were some cars everyone was itching to see run, and cars that were expecting some quite ridiculous numbers. Those cars were Adam’s pearl silver R32 GTR ‘FATGTR’, Mick’s ‘DRAGER’ Supra and Paul’s silver R32 GTR ‘TWO.06L’, but unfortunately the crazy RH9 was not going to be running due to it being too powerful for the dyno too handle, and the 7sec GM R32 was without an engine. Oh well, maybe next time. In saying this however, Adam, Mick and Paul did not disappoint, with Adam pushing out 720rwhp in FATGTR, which was his biggest power reading to date and puts him oh so close to that fabled 1000hp. Mick, even with a bad tune, managed to churn out 652rwhp and almost pull the wall down upon hitting boost; tugging so hard that the exhaust was actually sparking on the dyno rollers. Paul with his brand new high mount set up managed a quite insane 698awhp, technically taking out top honors, but it was all about the readings so FATGTR managed to snatch the title.

As much as these three took the lime light away from the others, big numbers were produced all day with the lowest reading being 292awhp from Jason’s Evo. Some would argue, though, that in technical terms Chloe produced the lowest reading with 329rwhp. But in saying that, for the lowest reading to be basically 400hp at the engine, it really shows that the quality of cars is phenomenal. I will definitely be covering all of CHR’s events in the coming months, as with cars like this they are proving themselves to be the ones to beat and it will only get better. Watch this space…

Special thanks to Jay and Justin for the invite.
