USA R32 Vspec II. Wheel fitment and GT-R/ Audi stuff blowing up!

An interesting before and after

Car with old wheels vs new and new fitment/stance




What's most dramatic though is comparison to an absolutely stock GT-R.

What a difference subtle aero parts and wheels/ fitment make.

So interesting coincidence: both my father's Audi and my GT-R blew up our right axles! Pic taken the day before new wheels for my car.


This motivational poster is dedicated to all the doityourselfers out there:

This one too:


Axle boot tore. Strange since it was just rebuilt! :



New boot repacked and looking awesome!:


More fun with friends when you fix a car:

And we decided since we were working on the car anyway to do all the bottom end of dad's engine. That's him on the right:




But yeah fixed:
some pics by me washing the car.






It's the house from The Fast and the Furious... wait.... no..


Some pics taken by project partner The G man.










The car as photographed by ThePerfectExposure

Been aching to go to another GT-R meet but no one has arranged one and I've been busy working 3 jobs. I'd like to try arranging something in June maybe.

Nice pics, but I hope you raised the ride height (or plan to) after you put the new half shaft in, otherwise you will end up breaking it again.

I did. As long as it's in Los Angeles it needs to be at least a quarter inch higher than my project partner's pics. It's perfectly happy as it sits in the pics after the car wash (that's high enough for me. Not a bit of rubbing or scraping on that height. Don't believe me, I invite anyone from the owner's club to ride with me. Just shoot me a pm if you ever decide to drop by southern California). Irvine's manicured streets however are nearly perfect for lowered cars so long as they're showing up to shows and not being smashed into potholes at top speed. So my project partner keeps it low.

Actually we have a neat little Nardi wheel waiting. I'm just waiting to borrow someone's steering wheel puller.

Thats the right mix of height (lack of), offset and N1 parts.

Well done!

IMO the last 2 things to do to really get the contrast going would be to spray the front lip black (matt black, not gloss) and some very dark tints.

Dude this looks like a proper "Pinoy-gathering". Great finding the BBS RS pare. What are the specs if you don't mind and did you have to rebore them to fit?

Where are my manners, people keep asking about the wheels. They're BBS RS 17 by 9 all around. With spacers they're around -5 offset.


No Michelle Rodriguez... but someone wanted me to edit this pic to look like the car was doing a wheelie and caption it: Vin Diesel and Paul Walker got nothing on me!

I'm sorry to say but I think it looks better before, I just prefer the old wheels and it looks daft that low now, personally I like an even gap all around the wheel when lowered

Skill and some math. Also alignment parts. Having friends who are experts at suspension geometry helps a lot too.
