If you were after handling and torque, You would have been better leaving the RB in there....:chairshot

I bet a bare R32 shell does not weigh much more than a S13 shell and it should handle well with a four pot engine fitted.

Hmmm not sure on that mate, i think a 400bhp rb26 in the car it was made for will be beating yours with an sr20 in.

Why do you want to use a GTR over a GTST or N/A shell if your drifting?
If he's deleting front/awd drive, then its lighter, looks better, better brakes from factory, stronger drivetrain and wider track... only negative is the steering rack won't have as much lock, but there are ways around that.

My dream drift car is a supercharged VH45 in a rwd R32 GTR, so I have looked into its merits.

Well I got a mint shell at a price I couldn't refuse and spent£££££ on the s13 engine set up so I thought y not but the 2 2geather yeah ill b sortin the steering aswell its mint no rust project that I want!!!! Anyway if I was 400bhp up against a 400bhp rb26 ill have lighter car better handling quicker take off, so wat if I don't have 4 wheel drive and an extra turbo I recon ill have a bit more of an edge anyway wen the rb slows down and over steers ill b on the inside lane passing!!! Now back 2 question I need as much info on this as poss plz!!

Could be an interesting idea, as you've got most of what's needed, if i remember correctly the old JGTC Supra's used the 4 banger 4G (celica/MR2) engine due to weight advantages, both in overall and distribution. It would be good to get it's corner weighted when it's done.

Sounds like an interesting project! Afraid I can't help with any info but think you might get a good 50:50 weight distribution as the gtr with the RB is a bit front heavy! Also, you might try posting on Skyline Owners Club as some people here can be a bit precious with such things!
Good luck:)
