    My gtr got broken into 3am Saturday morning, thanks to my alarm calling me and smsing me I woke up went down stairs and herd someone trying to open the door so I quietly went back upstairs and got my wife to call the cops I then went and sat in a spot where I could keep an eye on the car, I thought to myself if I go rage and run down he might have a weapon or run off and return a later day Somehow I kept my cool to sit and wait for police, I then herd "get on the floor don't move don't move!!" And people running so I jump down the stairs and see 6 cops slam this scum to the floor and handcuff him He was taken to the local station where he is known for theft My previous gtr was stolen back in 2012, with this gtr I went all out on the alarm/pager/gps and I did all I could to really catch this son of a bitch Thankfully no body damage to get into the car but the obviously the ignition barrel and wires under the steering are all fudged I first got the call from the alarm at 3:10, cops were there at 3:25 and he still couldn't start the car, suck shit Can't stress how important a good alarm system is people, spending $1200 on a alarm is cheap compared to loosing a gtr

    R33 farmcar. Who like's no-fuks-given builds? Gday Blokes This will be for the boys who enjoy backyard crap, not full blown nice builds. So we have a farm, that farm has a race track and each year we run a few events and buy shit cars to race, now if your quick you can pickup a few imports cheap...last year i went out with a stock sr20det 180sx that i later turned into a full drift build......a few months ago I picked up a crashed and shit R33 skyline. friends The car was pretty molested and shit, after tidying up lots of things I tried to get it started......long story short it had been sitting over 5 years in the weather and the engine was full of water/rust and all sorts of bad crap....i measured 0 compression on cyl 1 and 2 - then gave up testing. * rusted fuel pump / replaced with a spare walbro had sitting around. the fuel in the tank has melted all the seals and gone off. Pulled the motor out and went and got another 25 (because im sucker for pain) Clutch was u/s but i had a new one around for another project..so that went in. installed new thermostat, lower temp tridon one, i think its 70deg open. Installed a r32 rad i had lying around, had to remake the bottom mounts, make it sit higher + different rubber mounts type. Installed an intercooler on the front reo bar Made up some nice short pipework, to go through the front light cutouts. bonnet was bent, so threw it out made a short "dose" "snorkel" pipe or whatever you want to call it. made a twin top exit exhaust got a r32 ecu nistuned for the rb went out to farm for a test run So pretty excited for Australia day weekend, as that is race / play weekend! and there it is, shitty r33 for your pleasure.

    Finally got my new baby!!! I'm now a proud owner of a bayside blue R34 GTR V Spec[emoji1]. Low k's, good condition & sounds & pulls like a dream at 306kw-(thanks a lot to Milan for his time, money & effort put in car). Milan was awesome with helping organise process & helped make my Xmas & year by eventually agreeing to sell me his pride & joy-I promise to look after her mate. After loosing my dad & best mate this year, was hard to be happy......but now that I've truly experienced(& own) my dream car, I can honestly say I'm optimistic & truly happy again! I now believe Passion can overcome misery, and GTR overcomes all haha[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji1419][emoji1419]

    For those who haven't read MOTOR Magazine, March 1999... "Picture a car lobbing at Mt Panorama next October and, shod with slicks but otherwise straight off the production line, lapping the mountain some 10-15 sec quicker than any Commodore or Falcon V8 Supercar. It's nearly a decade since the first Nissan Skyline GT-R (the R32) did just that, demolishing local resistance around Australia's most famous circuit on its way to setting race records which still stand today. In an awe-inspiring demonstration of four-wheel drive turbo technology the car known as Godzilla humiliated our V8s, dominating so completely that authorities rewrote the rules to exclude it from competition. Yes, the original Skyline GT-R made plenty of waves, but if the latest version of this legendary supercar - the R34 - ever gets the same opportunity (unlikely, though that is), it will surely generate a tsunami. Consider these facts. In 1995 leading Japanese tintop racer Kazuo Shimizu hurled the R33 Skyline around Germany's famous Nurburgring in 7 minutes 59.8 seconds, making it the first production car ever to break the 8-minute barrier. But the R34 is in yet another league. The 'Ring' became a second home for Shimizu during developmental testing for Nissan last year, when the Japanese sliced a whole 7 seconds off his R33 lap record in testing to leave the unofficial Nurburgring mark at a staggering 7:52. Nissan wasn't about to bring its newest Japan-only performance hero to Bathurst for us to trial however, so we opted to take the R34 and its predecessor, the R33, to the Autopolis circuit in southern Japan. With us was Shimizu himself, the man who has tested both cars to their absolute limits over more than 2000 laps of the 'Ring'. "If it wasn't for the 206 kW maximum power limit the new GT-R would not only be the best handling car in the universe but the quickest," said Shimizu. Internally the R34 packs similar hardware to the R32 - a twin turbocharged 24 valve 2.6 litre straight six. Power remains at the published 206 kW at 6800 rpm, but torque is up 24 Nm to a colossal 392 Nm at 4400 rpm. The extra grunt comes courtesy of camshaft modifications for improved valve timing and new low-friction roller bearing ceramic turbochargers. Together it adds up to improved throttle response and virtually no turbo lag. "To keep the R33 cooking you had to hold revs above 4500 rpm, but with the R34 bottom-end response comes on thick and strong from 3500. And top-end power hasn't been sacrificed. It just keeps on serving up torque all the way to 7500 rpm," said Shimizu after his drive. Keep that power in check and flowing smoothly is the new and long overdue six-speed Getrag gearbox. The shift is quicker and, with free play reduced from 22 to just 5 mm, the most precise of any Japanese car. Nissan claims the GT-R's 400-metre time is down 0.3 seconds, to 12.6 seconds. And that its new Godzilla hauls from zero to 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The R34 redefines the GT-R theme by imposing more aggression on a formerly underdone exterior. The thick, chunky grille and the airdam section show definite hints of Aston Martin Volante and help make the new Godzilla a fearsome apparition when it fills your mirrors. The new car is smaller but weight remains the same at 1560kg. Overall length is cut by 75 mm to 4600 mm, with the platform taking a 55 mm cut to make it manoeuvrable. The angle of the twin layered rear wing can be altered four ways to improve downforce, and the single-piece forged BBS alloy wheels have been specially designed for the GT-R, up from 17 inches on the R33 to 18 inches. They're shod with arguably the world's grippiest rubber, a specially developed Bridgestone Potenza RE040 245/40 Z18 tyre designed to handle the GT-R's phenomenal performance. And what makes it handle so well are two pieces of hi-tech wizardry called Attessa ETS-PRO and Super-HICAS. Attessa ETS-PRO is a part-time four-wheel drive system which directs power to the rear wheels until conditions demand otherwise. Sensors monitor individual wheel speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, throttle opening and brake pedal activation to give the ECU sufficient indication of loss of rear traction, and only then are the front wheels engaged to pull you out of a sticky situation. At that point torque distribution is split 50:50 between front and rear. The 'PRO' bit is found only on the V-Spec (race-tuned) model and refers to the addition of a Helical LSD to the rear wheels. This is basically an active LSD that channels optimum torque between the right and left rear wheels to maximise traction. The Super-HICAS four-wheel steering system has sensors which measure steering angle, steering rate acceleration and yaw rate to ensure the correct response at the point of turn-in. Driving the R32 at speed, with its inherent understeer, required a high level of driving ability. You had to turn into a corner early, break through the understeer threshhold, wait for the oversteer to kick in, then countersteer and gun the car out. The R34 has found the perfect balance between four-wheel drive understeer and rear-wheel drive oversteer to make even the most mediocre driver feel like Michael Schumacher. And in talented hands it makes for a formidable combination. When Shimizu was testing the R34 on the 'Ring' he was passed on one of the long straights by a new BMW M5, travelling at 275 km/h. Once the cars reached the twisty sections however, Shimizu hosed the 300 kW car, which could only manage a best of 8:30. Inside, there isn't a lot to differentiate the new model. In fact, the GT-R is crying out for some inspired interior styling. It has always been thus, as if performance was such a triumphant priority that flair was forgotten. The focal point of the new dash is the multi-faceted display with a 150 mm liquid crystal screen sitting atop the centre console. It shows nine need-to-know mechanical paramaters, including turbo boost, torque split, and oil and water temperature. Fine in theory, but when you achieve warp speed in the new GT-R who has time to check how much torque is being channelled to the front wheels? In Japan you can have the latest version sitting in your driveway for $75,000. But don't hold your breath waiting for one to lob Down Under. Sydney-based importer Drummoyne Performance says plans to smuggle in an R34 would be on hold until a local workshop received Australian compliance. The wait for local enthusiasts could therefore be as long as 12 months - expect to pay $140,000 when it arrives. Nissan's decision to not import the R34 might be viewed as strange by some given the lengthy queues formed when Subaru offered a limited run of 400 STi WRXs here recently. All 400 (at $60,000 arpiece) were quickly snapped up and some are already being offered for resale in newspaper classified columns for upward of $85,000. But within Nissan Australia's Clayton headquarters there will still be painful memories of the R32, 100 examples of which were imported in 1991. The first few sold quickly, but heavy discounting was required to find homes for the rest. Such peripheral thoughts were far from our minds though, as we pulled into the pit area, still on sensory overload. The twin Godzillas were quietly tick-tick-ticking, seemingly content with the quantity of rubber they had torched in one day. While the beasts nonchalantly made their way into the hangar transformed into a temporary monster lair, we wondered who had been tamed - us or them."

    March is a great time of year. AFL is back, and so too that of the F1 Season. 2012 is an interesting season for F1 for a number of reasons. More rounds and with it more restrictions around engine and gearbox life. Break an engine it could potentially ruin your season. With this reason the technical partnership between Shell & Ferrari is being forged ever stronger Before reading on, if you remember past write ups I have done then sweet – if not then check them out as once again. CLICK for 2009 CLICK for 2010 CLICK for 2011 F1 moves to 20 Rounds for 2012 20 round for 2012 - WOW. A record number for F1. Throw in the engine development freeze until 2014 and so the challenge has been set of not only sticking with what you have, ensuring it does not fail being more important than ever. Cara Tredget, Shell’s Formula One Technology Manager said ‘I’d say that our challenge is all the harder as we have less parameters in which to work and that make any performance advantage we can give Ferrari all the more rewarding." Here is some further commentary from Shell on the work and development Within the car, much work has been done on the new engine. Amongst other elements, the Maranello engine specialists have been working on performance drop off, with the aim of maintaining the highest possible performance level throughout each engine’s cycle of use, which has now reached an average life of three races. Sums it up perfectly really. F1 Race engines lasting an average of 3 races, potentially more. So Shell provide the fuel, engine, gearbox and other oils... Something I didn't know is that Shell also provide Ferrari with a bespoke fluid used in keeping the KERS battery system in running order. Perhaps not as cool a s cucumber however temperature is important to help prevent electrical charge escaping. Time for some fast facts once again: Fast Facts • A Formula One car has a minimum weight of 640 kg, including fuel and driver. • A Formula One car can go from 0 to 100 mph in 1.5 seconds. • Over a race weekend, a driver will change gear about 8,000 times. • Formula One drivers experience forces up to 5g when taking sharp corners • The average cockpit temperature is about 50 ºC, rising even further at the hotter races. And slightly more technical... • Every year, Shell blends more than 200,000 litres of fuel for the Ferrari Formula One race and test teams – enough to last a road car for 50 years. • Shell’s Formula One V-Power racing fuel contains up to 200 different components. • Pistons can exceed temperatures of 300 °C The Pit Tour This year was a little different. Due to extra teams and Ferrari's season last year the pit area the team had to work in was about 1/3 smaller. McLaren were close by next door with staff from both camps essentially rubbing shoulders when leaving the pit area's. Certainly hard to keep any secrets in this environment. There is limited pictures this year as we were not allowed to take our own pictures. A bit of a change compared to previous years however there are a few none the less. Shell Corp Tent & Ferrari Drive Day After the pit tour there was a opportunity to go on a Ferrari drive day... Unfortunately not being 30 meant I couldn't attend and had to send a proxy in my place. This will be the only time I wish I was older. So I asked if I would like to stick around in the Shell Corp Hospitality area down on turn 1... After twisting my arm so severely it resembled a Chinese burn, I succumbed and agreed On a more serious note this was a great opportunity to find out a bit more about the inner workings of Shell as a company, the people behind it. Who knows what else might occur as well. My host for the afternoon was Paul Zenarro, Shell Senior Media Advisor. After some rather great food, Dick Johnson dropped in for a quick Q&A in-front of the guests present. His Fav car - The old Sierra Cossie (that one was for you Brisby!). Later on in the day whilst talking about all things Shell, Paul advised it was a possibility organise tour(s) of the Shell refinery down in Geelong. Both on foot and via mini-bus. As SAU users are generally quite technically minded I thought this to be a great offer to look into further. I'll continue to work on that so keep a keen eye on the Victorian section over the next month if this is something that tickles your interest. Enjoy Part 2 Cheers Ash SAU Admin

    Hey Travis, interesting post, what prompted you to decide that 2017 would be the year to add a $1000 bucks to the price?. Whilst I'm in the market for a GTR and yours is somewhat of a reasonable price, don't you think you might actually clean it before posting such terrible pics. Mate have a look at the centre console and the passenger seat, did someone piss themselves and nobody bothered cleaning it up. If you have since detailed/cleaned it have you any new pics, oh I see no pics of the boot area, those would be good, as well as under the car, ie chassis rails, under the front and rear. Did you have the car painted when it got here or was it done before your purchase?. Do you have receipts for all the engine internals purchased and the engine building?. I am concerned that you spent all that money on the engine and then used a tee-piece boost controller and cheap air filters. It's just not making any sense to me. When I look at a car with the sellers price, I start to add and subtract money as I look at the pics, Yours for me started at $28000 and hasn't got much above that, the bonnet lip and N1 bar vents are cool but thats about it. Why no side indicators, surely in Victoria it's part of the compliance, it is in NSW and would have to be addressed for rego. That rust in the rear 1/4 panel is not minor, that a double panel and a pain in the arse to fix, seems it was not when you bought it and that leads me to wonder what actually got re-painted when the lower 1/4 was repaired. I'm not even going to ask who painted the wipers blue, that's an easy fix. Please don't get me wrong as I am in the market and have the cash, you need to enlighten me on some worrying things on the car. Cheers Neil.
