Haha, didnt know gtr's came out with a diesel engine!!!
Its not original! But with the price of fuel these days, we thought it makes sense to go with something a bit smaller and more economical! Besides with the weight saving it will probably be just as quick as with a stock rb! And I should be quite unique!

Thats not good to hear! but i've heard so many conflicting pieces of advice, the people i trust so far, Mark, Lee, Ian have recommended the Tiens, so lets put it to the test and see what happens. I believe setup, camber alignment, tracking, wheels, tires, ect. have an awful lot to do with keeping the wheels in contact with the road at speed, so deferent cars will react differently to the Tiens, hopefully my car will react well!

I also need the adjustable ride height, I saw the pics of your car as soon as you fitted the s-tunes, and if thats only 30mm lower than stock ride height, im concerned with only a 20mm drop, i may still have problems! (my garage has strange entrance!) how many k's were on the shocks, is it posable they have sagged a bit! as the stock ride hight on my car seemed like it was on stilts!

For sale btw, if any one wants some stock stilts! :chuckle:
The Superstreets on my 33 are excellent, Rod Bell at RB recommended them so I went with them.

Steve,
I'm delivering your rear camber arms to Lee tomorrow morning, so I'll have a sniff at the gearbox housing and few other bits, if ok with Lee!

Just time for a very quick update!



Had the rear Nismo spats re-painted buy my new Gym spotter! one of the perks of having a paint department in the studio i'm currently contacted to!..


Perfect, i will add carbon fibber trim/edging pieces i have fabricated, to protect the ends against the exhaust heat.
