Had my nearly stock NISMO out for a open track session late last month.


#500 of the 560 NISMO's produced.
Stock airbox
Stock boost
Stock exhaust
Stock suspension
R34 Wheels
Toyo R888 tires
Full Race ETS-Pro
Carbotech brake pads
Castrol SRF
Goodridge brake lines

Had no great hopes for the car. On stock suspension she rolls a bit though corners.

Anyway. Was a nice fun day. Perfect SoCal weather. Car never got too hot, not like the last day at Auto Club Speedway.

I left the ETS Pro off for part of one session, and was wondering why the car was sliding around so much.

I want to keep it stock, and I want to not. Ha ha. I've been working on these things for so long, I have gathered a lot of parts.

I would have done suspension, but when we put it on the corner scales with me in it, was 50/50 corner weights. I was like....well 24 years old, seems happy. Nissan Skyline GT-R s in the USA Blog: Weighing the Show or Display Nismo R32 Skyline GT-R

I wanted to run it at a few local tracks, and then just leave it alone. But I can't help myself. Just bought a few more NISMO's, and I have a POS 89 that I will turn into a real track car.

what do you think of the ETS-Pro, Sean?
I liked it. Shut it off when I was moving around in the pits, so then the car didn't bind up like it does at low speed.

On track I mostly stayed pretty low in split, as my car doesn't make much power.

When I turned it up, I noticed that my stock clutch started to slip. So must be doing something.

When it was off by accident, noticed, hmmm, sliding around a bit more than normal.

So overall, really like having fingertip control of the center diff.

This is beautiful, so clean too!
How long have you had it?
Apparently the stock shock spring rates are pretty low in the 2-3kg region.
Keep the info/updates coming!
