There is something about a white time attack car that really has that track look. Maybe it goes back to the N1 GTR race derived specials that were only available in white as were the track and rally orientated EVO RS Lancers for a time.
Whatever the case, it looks the part on James Andersons wide body S15. The car is an example of what is achievable on a sensible budget with some carefully executed modifications. The SR20 remains internally standard but step one cams help the engine breath much better and that is probably a good thing seeing as there is now a big GT30R Garrett turbo bolted to the side.
The suspension consists of Bilsteins at all four corners and and the brakes are R33 GTR Brembos sitting behind Volk TE37 Superlaps. A Sunline bonnet and Top Stage carbon fibre boot lid and Voltex wing all sit over the top of a trick Vertex Ridge wide body.
Underneath the body sits a custom front splitter and a rear diffuser. The chassis has been seam welded and a road legal cage installed.
This car has been built by the owner James Anderson with the assistance of Andrew Handmer from SX Developments, who has been involved in the car’s development at every step, especially in preparation for the WTAC.
James was quick to also point out that his is not a fully fledged workshop car but a passionate hobby of its owner. James would also like to thank Wayne and Andrew Sutton for their support over a very concentrated 3 months of chassis work!
About SX Developments
SX Developments is a new venture of Andrew Handmer, aka The Engine Whisperer. Located in Hornsby NSW, SX Developments aims to be a one stop shop for serious race car development – combining the usual mechanical work and performance modifications with custom design, fabrication and electronics.
Extensive experience in setting up/packaging SR20s for track work, suspension and braking upgrades, aero packages, engine conversions and even electric vehicles are their specialties.
All types of vehicles are catered for, with experience across a wide array of brands/manufacturers, but obviously focusing on Nissan’s light weight rear wheel drive S-series cars.
While SX Developments is a new name, in a new location, Andrew has worked on various race teams, and built several race and track day cars, as well as looking after countless track oriented cars in the past. Some of these include a successful drift car, a BMW Super Touring car, a very fast naturally aspirated track S13 Silvia (known as ‘Hello Kitty Silvia’) that managed to beat most of its turbo counterparts in its day, motorcycle engine race cars (Radical etc), Clubmans, and electric powered motorcycles.
