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.

WHY is this post infecting a TrailBlazer forum? The content is utterly unrelated, utterly un-interesting.

ELIMINATE "Global" postings.

amy@af
12-24-2014, 01:47 AM
If you think it's uninteresting, you have the choice to not view it. While you might feel it's unrelated, it is not. This is a forum for everything automotive. AF's GT-R is very relevant to AF. Global posts are for AF related activity. If you expect everything to be about the TrailBlazer, you might have a misunderstanding as to what AF as a whole is about.

That would be like saying I can't post here because I'm assigned to the Honda section therefore I must be contained to just that section. I am an automotive enthusiast. I am all over AF :runaround:

While you might feel it's unrelated, it is not. This is a forum for everything automotive.
And yet AF has subdivided the forum into various vehicle-specific sub-categories, so that a person like me, who wants Trailblazer information, doesn't have to wade through a thousand Ford-related, Chrysler-related, Rolls-Royce related, Lotus-related, etc. posts to find the ones I actually care about.
AF's GT-R is very relevant to AF. Global posts are for AF related activity. If you expect everything to be about the TrailBlazer, you might have a misunderstanding as to what AF as a whole is about.
Where is the logic in first dividing up the web site so that folks can quickly and efficiently find their interests...and then inflicting non-related threads into each of those sub-divisions?

Not at all. You roam AF because you have interests all over AF.

I stick to a few sub-divisions because my interests are more limited. We both go where we want, to get content that appeals to us.

So what's the point in creating make-and-model specific sub-forums, and then deliberately polluting those make-and-model specific sub-forums with unrelated content?

Global posts detract from a nicely-focused, interest-specific, well-divided web site.

I choose to not get into a multi quote debate. AF is for all auto enthusiast. AF will be involved in activities for all brands. Activities will be posted. AF is listed by brand but that does not mean it is intended to be segregated, it is an automotive community as a whole. You have a choice to click or not click any thread.

Well said.

On a lighter note, I've been gone a few years and this is my first post. There's that, I guess...

So, where is the R34 and what are the current specs/plan for it?

Welcome back! :cheers: if you need assistance resetting an old password, I can help!

It is currently in "Los Angeles" general Southern California. No big plans at the moment as the focus is AF as a whole. We just had a server upgrade. You picked an excellent time to return as AF will experience some more upgrade due on February. Stay tuned!
