Re: Nissan Skyline GT-R to Make North American Road Racing Series Debut in SPEED GT

WOW! love the color scheme esp. the eyes.
I hope it goes well. The vipers and CTS are tough comp. It will be cool to see a Skyline race. I will see it at Road ATL....hee hee

I aggree w/ a lot of what Layla's Keeper says but you know what being an under dog is great.

Go win a race.

PS: Read, "Unleash the Warrior Within" by Richard J. Machowicz (ex Navy SEAL) He has something to say about overcomming odds and adversity. Check reviews at Amazon

Re: Nissan Skyline GT-R to Make North American Road Racing Series Debut in SPEED GT

Hey guys are you being allowed to keep ur All Wheel Drive?? If this car is anywhere near the build avail to the JGTC cars.... its all going to be on the driver... I saw the JGTC 500 horsepower "limited" 350z in California... and saw the GT300 class cars KILL the Viper that was "allowed" to race. You guys are bringing to the table EXACTLY what this car over 15 years ago was intented...kill the competition on a road course... GTR was never MENT to be a drag racer.. I'm thinking once Igor understands the chess match happening on the track, and Sean and the boys keep the oil where it needs to be IE- rod bearings!-ugh! LOL. Sean did you get to "steal" the idea of the oil pick up from the gt500 motor you pulled apart??
This car is going to be the biggest thing to happen to american road racing since the tire...lol. You guys need help in the pits and I'll send Scott-Joule and his knowledge to you... I've road raced motorcycles most my life, so I'll be forced to stay at the shop and keep the parts comin in and out, and make sure the techs don't stand around jerkin off....LOL.

Re: Nissan Skyline GT-R to Make North American Road Racing Series Debut in SPEED GT

Speed World Challenge has no rule disallowing AWD, R33BusaMan. However, only the Audi RS6 has been able to employ AWD with any success on track.

The JGTC is hardly a gauge of production-based sports car racing. Serious road racing fans refer to it as "Japan's NASCAR" for good reason. It is highly unlikely that this Skyline GTR will "kill" the factory Autohaus Viper driven by Tommy Archer (you know, 2 time SWC GT champion and American Viper expert Tommy Archer).

I do think that the Woodhouse and McCann Viper teams will have a look back over their shoulders at this car, as will Stu Hayner's GTO and the new Aston Martin DBSR9's. However, factory teams like Autohaus or the Pratt&Miller Caddys are a whole different animal.

The cars are N1 ex- Super Taikyu cars. Nothing at all like GT500 or GT300 cars. GT500 cars are mostly tube frame ,carbon fiber bodied cars. Not much of the stock cars left.

The cars we are running are very close to a street car. The motor I took apart with the swining oil pickup was one of the Super Taikyu engines. One of the engines from these cars. The engines we are running are Nismo built and Nismo tuned.

Re: Nissan Skyline GT-R to Make North American Road Racing Series Debut in SPEED GT

Awesome! And i have to say that, that is one of the best paint schemes i have ever seen on a Skyline!

Best of luck, and if at first you don't succeed, try, then try again!
