Team Japspeed’s drift cars are considered some the highest-spec competing in the British Drift Championship, and in 2011 the V8 twin-turbo S15 driven by Shane Lynch has further evolved with the help of Quaife Engineering.
With over 500bhp and 600lb-ft of torque the VH45DE-powered Nissan puts a huge amount of stress on the drivetrain (especially when considering the nature of drifting. With this in mind, Japspeed has opted to run a Quaife QBE69G heavy-duty six-speed sequential gearbox in time for the 2011 season, ensuring maximum reliability and no chance of mis-shifting when competing.
‘The QBE69G is a truly superior piece of kit’ explains Japspeed Team Principal, Paul McCallum. ‘The 6-speed configuration will give Shane more flexibility on both the fast and technical tracks this year, allowing him to carry more speed and make use of every horsepower available. We cannot wait to use the car in anger with the new box fitted’.
Rated to 750bhp and complete with an integral oil pump to ensure adequate lubrication over long distances, the QBE69G combined with a winning chassis and driver will give Team Japspeed a serious chance at the BDC title. Japspeed are proud to be working with Quaife in 2011 and look forward to kicking off the season on April 22nd.
