I think that's an excellent idea jps! Doing so adds factual information and substance to this Forum and helps others out on "ye-olde-interwebs" when they do a search for the Skyline GT-R model they personally idolise.

The more topics on specific versions the better in my book!

When your NISMO 400R finally lands and is firmly in your possession Sully, Is there any chance you could possibly answer this question I asked ages ago about the functionality of side skirt vents on these cars please?

Question about the sideskirt vents on a Nismo 400R?

TIA!

Hello Mr K66 SKY.

I believe you are slightly confused.

I am Sully, the 400R - my UK owner will not know the answer until he sees me in a few weeks time.


but to answer your question to the best of my knowledge - the vent in front of the rear wheel directs air on to the brakes and there is no specific pipe / ducting.


When we meet at Ace, you can see for yourself of course.

Sully - can you share your chassis number so we can all order 400R parts like this diffuser?

Your owner wont need to know

Oh well then Sully. Although my car has been to the Ace Cafe a few times thanks to its previous Owner....



I very much doubt that I'll be making the journey there from Wales Sully, especially after reading about fairly recent experiences where confusion over attendees mean't some Nissan GT-R Owners were turned away.

You see, Driving 350miles+ just to hang around in a car park in London for a short period of time doesn't exactly rise to the top of the most enjoyable things to do in my Skyline. Fingers crossed that'll your new Owner will bring you to other more interesting venues around the UK and I'll get to see a genuine NISMO 400R in the flesh then!

A place called Cwmbran which is only about half an hour away from your friends location. Please, please PLEASE bring the 400R if you are ever visiting there as it would be great to meet up and see a real one!
