So it won't be long now then Martin that you'll see the error of your ways and be back in the Skyline fold with a BNR34 just like aaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllll the other Nissan GT-R Owners eventually do!

I now own an R35. As far as I am concerned all the skylines are (slow and) shit.....

If that were true, what would be the point....

There is more to it than technical advancement.

Any skyline is EVOcotive.

LOL! The R33 (esp in Spec III guise) is mechanically an R34 with a five speed gearbox....So there's NO WAY R32's can be the better Skyline Mart!

gtr mart There are a number of great things about the skyline.

The dominance over all other 'competition' at the tieme
the available performance per £££££
The looks / violence / Jap influence
The innovation

But IMHO the very best thing which they all share is the noise. I love the sound of the RB26 which they ALL share. The very best variant being a lovely single with the car being launched.

All that said, I had an R32 so obviously that's far better

Steve Yep agree Richard - it is character and personality of the difference that makes the difference as you can probably get both cars to perform in the same way but different and if anyone has had both side by side as I and Richard have you would understand this.

Exactly this.

At the end of the day they are all RB26 GT-Rs.
All great cars.
But there are clear differences in weight, improvements with time and handling. Or you could say character.

Due to this, different ones appeal to different people.
But to discount the others as clearly inferior is wrong.

ahsam421 32,33,34 are all beautiful cars, the true GTR with RB26, nothing else :P

every part of a R33 was purpose built.. not by mistake (as some people say)
even the GTR signs.. was the first GTR to have the badge in the front.



@FRracer - stock for stock.. or similar mods the R32 needs a lot more to compete with the other 2.
the R33 was an improvement(whether we want to admit or not)
when I drove I looked for (remember on the street)
- easy to drive
- car feedback
- comfortably
- general power
- cabin feel
with all of the above I feel the R33 - r34 was better then the R32( not that the R32 is bad, just not as good)
if I had it my way I would have all 3 models.
I choose the R33 after the drives... would have been R34 but $$$$$
R32 and R33s are around the same price... made more sense to go for R33(esp the vspec)

please don't get me wrong, not saying the R32 is a bad car im saying that if you gona compare (looks aside,caeteris paribus) the R33 is a better choice.
Well of course the car evolved had better brakes, stiffer chassis, v specs had active diff and a refined Attesa improved suspension geometry it is bound to be better but making a bold statement saying the R32 is the worst is rather a dumb thing to say with out giving a proper explanation.

Which is why I spent a lot of time and money working out the best combination for ride and quality handling on my R32 which with a getrag doesn't differ much at all from the more modern R33/34 in that department. You cannot beat the R33 characteristics on a fast flowing track due to its wheel base or the inherent chassis stiffness of an R34 but the difference is certainly not day and night or miles away.
Funny you say about the R33's wheelbase, Keiichi Tsuchiya said very much the same thing.
