Dont forget - the smallest displacement motor. 2568 cc. The Volvos were 2580, but I dont think we will see them this year. I think the next smallest motor is about a liter bigger.

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

Awesome car!! I will gladly support, having owned a SKYLINE while stationed at Camp Zama, Japan in the late 80's. I always wondered when this car would make it to the states. Good luck to you.

Good luck to all the team!

Remember: "It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game"
(I can't remember which wimp said that, but it sounds good )

About the livery - Go, Gio, Go!!
