My name is Sam Elassar, i am also known as the Dentist, i have been around mapping and tuning cars for about 10 years now. i went for a test drive couple of weekends ago after reading this forum and managed to get myself a black edition from my local dealer. i am still running the car in but this car is fantastic. i have owned many subarus and evos, i still even own a 1000bhp+ evo drag car. but the GTR has reignited my passion again.

this car is phenomenal and has a huge potential to explore :D


i now cant wait till i get the running in done so i can start exploring ;)

Long time no see and welcome! I think the last time I saw you was at Crail when I had my Extreme S!
Wonder how long yours will stay standard ;)
Got mine in May after selling a X RS - The GTR is a very good road car...
Hope all is well

the r35 is in a different league to the evos and subarus, and i have been in many and i have mapped pretty much every model old and new. there is so many names that i recognised on this form from the MLR ;) already it is good to see people are progressing :D

The very same...
Are you still pals with Mr Gammon?
how are you doing julian, so what did you think of the evo xrs ?

i just got of the evo after tuning few evo x, it has lost the punch you used to get with the earlier ones.

still speak to dave occasionally , he is now working with at JR motorsport so he is gone full time while for me i still have my day job and i stopped travelling as much. i like to spend my weekends with my family :)

hi mark

i have been lucky, i phoned around and got myself a car within a week in the spec and colour that i wanted. middlhurst had 3 cars but not the colour i was after, my local dealer had a cancelled order that i ended up getting. otherwise i would have had to wait till march/april next year!!

i got my car unregistered and at dealer prices. so all worked out perfect.

if you want one you are quicker phoning all the dealer and finding one :)

Another lurker from the MLR... :)

So how long did it take you from order to recieving?

Hi Sam,

I am another who has come from Evo land having owned 7 Evos to date. You may remember me as you and Dave installed a Motec on my VIII MR and I believe it was the first MR you did, and it went very well.

All being well I should be picking up a Black Edition on Tuesday now I have a deposit for my 997. Can't wait to see what you get up to with the GTR as these things re not to be left standard.

David.

hi david

i remember we did it on the dyno that day did we not :)

i take it you are getting a 997 turbo? i looked at them before i got my GTR. i just could not make up my mind/something about it did not speak to me so it will be interesting to see how you feel when you have them both.

The X RS is by far the best Evo incarnation I have owned. Ecutek (400/400 is easy), Exhaust and Eibachs is really all you need to make an awesome road car. The chassis is simply in another class compared to previous models. The finish is better but not GTR quality and really wanted to get down to one car rather than 2. For a track tool, I still beleive the 6 RS is the one to have though...

Hi Sam, welcome over. The GT-R looks fab and I think you have set the record for the fastest purchase. Most on here have waited over a year or are still waiting!

I can't wait to see the direction your car takes. The Access Port has excited people loads so far, but your tweaks to the car should be the next level.
