I figured I would start up the fun by hearing everyone's 2013 New Year's Resolutions for their Skyline, Project car, etc.

How it works, let everyone know what you plan on doing over the course of 12 months with your car, here are some examples:

What Mods do you plan on buying / installing? What type of Build do you plan?

What time do you want to run? track related?

Track times, events, magazine spots, 12 months on jack stands?

And any other car related goals for this year.

Did you finish your 2012 goals?

Then we can all look back a year from now and see what we've accomplished.

Happy New Year everyone!

Plans for this year is simple

Finish installing rb30 with t51r

Install link g4 extreme

Finish installing the windows n bodykit

Map it

Then drive the car to the limit


A 10 on 1/4 would be nice

But more track focused this year

Will aim for a 53 sec lap at knockhill but be happy with a 56-57

Skyline Plan;
Enjoy my hard work, fit/buy a silenced decat and finally get some trackdays in.

Daily runner;
Sell 530D before its worth nada (130k now) and buy either;
- Cheap rubbish runabout
- An S2000 again (last one got sold prematurely after it was keyed)

Just cant quite decide if I can justify a S2000 as a daily whilst keeping my R32 GTR

Edit: Oh and bettering my 11.6 on the 1/4 mile would be good - shouldnt be too hard as the clutch was bu$$ered when it ran that
