The Lab Limited in Hamilton has built up this special Nissan March Two vehicle to contest the New Zealand Superlap series, and various other events across the country.

The final car is  a combination of a five-door and three-door March, with a pretty epic power to weight ratio. Powered by a Link G4+ plugin, it promises to go as sharp as it looks!

A plethora of Speedflow fittings and filters etc

Gearbox is USDM Sentra six speed with Maxima VQ35DE bellhousing attached, this gives a helical LSD that’s otherwise unavailable with that bellhousing.

Full custom lower suspension arms and subframes built by The Lab

DTM Gravity wheels and Nexen semi slicks, wheels are 18 by 9 front and 18 by 10 rear

400Kws at the hubs 700Nm of torque at ~13PSI
That is the current limit for the single plate clutch we will need to upgrade soon!

Glenn Hodges, owner of the Lab Limited, will drive the car himself and plans to just get out there & have some fun getting used to a very different package. After a successful testing period, Glenn’s first race event will be the NZ Superlap series at Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park, Taupo.
