Good Morning Boss! Rise & Shine!






1971 RHD GT-R





Let me take a moment to introduce our very own #69 GT-R:
This is the first and only Nissan Skyline GT-R to have been raced in the United States in a professional road-race series. Back in 2006, the AutomotiveForums.com Race Team competed in Speed World Challenge GT across the country against Dodge Viper Competition Coupes, Tube-frame Chevrolet Corvettes, modified Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars, and even Aston Martin DBRS9s. With the field sporting around 560whp, we struggled to compete with a package that intially only delivered about 450whp. By the end of the season though, our car was on par in horsepower with over 580hp to the wheels.

The car was originally raced in the Japanese Super Taikyu series, built by NISMO. Only about 12 were built, and who knows how many remain. However, the spec in the Super Taikyu series was rather low for World Challenge GT, so in 2005 we proceeded to upgrade the GT-R. All bodywork was changed to carbon/fiberglass to lose weight, the transmission changed to a Holinger 6-speed sequential, a triple plate carbon clutch was custom-made by Tilton to ensure successful standing-start launches. All windows were changed to Lexan. In all, we were able to trim the weight of the GT-R down to under 3050 lbs dry - over 200 lbs shaved off the Super Taikyu-spec. Note that this is a weight that an R35 GT-R could never be in an AWD trim.

As Americans, its hard to comprehend that car as just another car.
