DON'T SHOUT

Type normally as on forums its the equivalent of shouting!

Use the forums search facility in regards to HICA's, many R32 owners including myself just lock out the HICAS on this model, others don't. But there is plenty on this forum in regards to your problem already!

Welcome to the GTR Register by the way!

After always owning cars that have already had the hi cas locked out, my most recent purchase still had it, and IMO was horrible to drive, the next day a full lock out kit was ordered

Hi cas

Gotta agree with the last post , hi cas was designed to make the car corner faster , not all people can handle the sensation , but when you can it makes a hell of a difference , dont worrie about the light coming on as mine never went out ! , check your track rod ends for wear , and oil levels , think an easy rule of thumb is Hi-cas for racing - lock out for drifting and anyone who cant handle the sensation of terror

Thank you - at last someone with a degree of understanding of how HICAS actually works!!!!
Itís totally reverse of what you are taught i.e. Slow in Fast out, if you have BIG balls and trust that you can go Fast in, Even Faster Out! (But only if your ability allows it!)

If you fix it it will make you faster if you can handle the feeling , some can some can`t , think it has to do with inner ear - balance and perception , locking out is better for drift and getting the arse end out and Hi-cas is there to help get rid of under steer , if your car is throwing the back end out - chance is a track rod end is stuffed , got my first 32 from madchester and on motorway on way home went over a dip at 120mph and the whole car went sideways , caught it ( as ususl ! ) , got home , did the track rod end and never looked back , R32 set up well rates with any car i have taken to a track - now looking to change my Stagea ( fully set up for track ) for a Hi-cas version !!! , don`t forget that the GTR was designed as a race car , not a drift car ! , " lock it out and loose it "

Yep and that is exactly what a race car is supposed to do i.e. corner faster so why the hell do people with "race" cars remove the HICAS ?

Or as you say unless they want to go sideways, in which case get a Rally car and do it properly!!! The Nissan GTR was, is and always will be a RACE car!

Leave the drifting to the Drifters (i.e. singing the songs)

lol Nice post, very rude, no real need for that was there.

I can peddle a car quite well thankyou, but as you don't know, (obviously from the comment you just made) that all my last cars have been drift cars, and hi cas is the last thing I'd want on the car, my new r32 will be in the same vein

EDIT: sorry think I may of missed who that was directed too. my bad think you where talking to the person above my post

Oh you where directing that at me, why wouldn't I want to run a skyline they don't have to all be used in the same way we're not all sheep. you've got a very narrow minded view on things haven't you.

I've had a 200sx and a sil80 but i came back to a r32 each time There amazing cars.

The question was asked I answered it as have many others, sorry that it doesn't agree with your point of view. In fact you've just made the very same agument on the r32/33 thread, maybe you should pay attention to your own 'wisdom'

God, you can read two threads at once???
All I am saying is the Nissan Skyline is and was designed to go as quickly as possible and especially around corners, hence, the Ring record/s!!! The car was / is not designed as a "drift" car where as the SX200, BWM, and Vauxhall Monaro ect can be used to go sideways as they are not proper ***8220;race***8221; cars. I don***8217;t really care if you want to bastardise an extremely competent fantastic car, but you are not using it for what it was / is designed for!
