Hi guys,after owning the GTR now for nearly 9 month and having up´s and down´s with it,i tought i need to start a new thread about my GTR in its latest spec-V...ähmm,no,maybe call it "GTR Spec-IR" ....as IR is the shortform for my company Importracing that im running since over 7 years....specialised in Evo´s and GTR´s....nothing else:D

Here is the old thread with a lot of pictures....http://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/118713-first-pictures-my-gtr-after-few-mods.html

Just did a few teaser shots of the car in my workshop,as it is still not very good weather outside,rain and snow could be over now.....

Spec:

- KW Competiton full alloy 3 way adjustable suspension
- Whiteline prototype ARB
- some still "top secret" mods for better setup/alignment
- Volk G2´s alloys with 285 & 315 Toyo´s R888
- AP Racing J-Hook disc´s with Carbonetic Pads
- Akrapovic Evolution exhaustsystem
- K&N Filters
- Cobb AP with custommapping
- Recaro Poleposition seats with low seat rails
- IR Diff coolersystem
- IR Gearboxcooler (still needs testing)
- IR Brakecoolingguides (still needs some more testing)

For me its most important that the handling is good,as i dont care about brutal power. Just power will not make you faster,it will just wear your parts faster and break parts more often...i think handling is the key to laptimes and fun,a good setup of the car is most important,so even small things like alignment and cornerweighting make a lot difference in handling,you will not believe it.

On the GTR there are a lot of parts which are simply not up the job,not even in standard form for fast street driving...like the brakes or the gearboxcooling...i have improved all this with parts from well known companys or when i was thinking that nothing that suits my needs is available i have made my own parts...like the gearbox/diffcoolers....:D

One of my main goals was to get the car as light as possible without carbonparts,not that i don´t like carbon,but i really cant justify spending 5 grand on a Mines carbonhood,never.....i think i did quite good with a weight of under 1700kg with 20 liters of fuel in the gastank without loosing any comfort(apart from the sh*t stock seats).I have looked to get as much unsprung weight of the car,as this is most important for good handling,alone the wheels are 3 kilos less each wheel then stock wheels.....suspension is far lighter too...exhaust is so light and beautiful...sounds good too.....

So,enough words written down....hope you like it:

1698 Kilos......lighter then the Spec-V:thumbsup:












Hope the sun comes out soon,as the color works best when the sun is out....car will be magazine featured soon...very soon,but not in a "max-power style" magazine....:thumbsup:

Alex

I've never been too sure on the styling of the R35 but when I see one like yours it just blows me away. The ride height and wheels make a huge difference over the stock R35 guff.

+1 !

Absolutely gorgeous.
That setup reminds me of another very similar one that I just felt in love with:

Any tests on the ring yet?
Keep up the good work.

Looking very nice. :D Out of interest, what was the weight before you started (i.e. how honest are Nissan with their specs)?

unlike Porsche, Nissan is honest with the weight :)

remember my friend who got 996 GT3RS years ago and the car was 60kg heavier than papers said. When he claimed they told him if he's not happy with the car he can give it back and get full refund....

Really hope the "english" weather goes back to UK.....as the magazine can´t test the car in the rain....on the other side this helps me a bit as i can put the car for final adjustment on KW´s chassisdyno on friday,con go there a complete day and setup the car correctly....:D

On Sunday there is maybe the chance to test the setup on the F1 course in Hockenheim,but this is depending on the weather..in the rain it makes no sence...:bawling:
