  1. I'm pretty sure my car will run 10s (I'm still a wimp). I'm also pretty sure it's a right bastard to just drive around in. It's pretty awful in traffic. Squeeling brakes, difficult clutch, loud as f... It's fine if you're out for a blast down the freeway or winding roads. But in traffic? Nope. I'd rather ride my pushbike... I think these cars are super cool but yeah, there not exactly daily drivers, auto is probably helpful though. [emoji848]
  2. I actually started to look into this, then got distracted. Closest thing i can find are the Auction results online for Japanese Auctions (GTR registry has started to record some) and an American website for classic cars called Hagerty. They do valuations for the American market. https://www.hagerty.com/apps/valuationtools/1993-Nissan-Skyline-GT~R I have no info on the UK market (except facebook posts and that's all anecdotal). Basically the best way to keep on top of prices is to be watching the market that you are in and compare it to the others around the world.
  3. Yep. First time i took mine out i didn't want to racr it around... I'd just spent a bunch of cash on it and didn't want to break it. Fast forward to now and the carefactor for components is a lot lower for me. Just don't crash it for the love of god!!! Get used to how it drives gently and find your way into driving it fast at your own pace. You have spent up big on it. Enjoy it at your own level. [emoji106]
  4. Mine does too. I have narrowed it to a couple of things that need tidying, but by far the biggest culprit is the amount of fuel i dump out of the exhaust. Ever seen an F111 dump and burn? That's me!!! 🤣
  5. I am a bit the same. But I feel like i need a third GTR. Like a high mileage stock one. Maybe in Midnight Purple. Then I have an easy to drive, no problem, already depreciated GTR on my hands that i can run into the ground. Or am i being greedy??? 😂 No worries. I show them off to everyone who pops round for parts and fixes. So far everyone reacts like you did. We're all the same, kids in candy stores round these cars. Also I'm learning that the KR4 car gets the big wow factor over the LM. Never thought i'd say that, but there you go. 😂
  6. Oooh yeah. That sounds good to me. I just love the boxy look of these. [emoji16]
  7. This has come up a few times... everyone's different. I'm all about 33s, but would love a set of GTRs. I prefer 34s over 32s but that's probably only because i don't fit in 32s.
  8. Front pipe and Cat Sold. Steering wheel surround still available.
  9. Hey all. Some time ago, i said i would take some photos of the interior and engine bay... Obviously you should have learned by now that when I say i'll do something, i mean in a few months. In any case here are some interior shots of the stock GTR for your viewing pleasure. BTW, the car is slightly dusty, and has some leaves and dirt in it, the photos make it look very bad, but it's not as severe as it looks. I took a lot of images of the stickers on the car, as I suspect there wouldn't be too many left with these stickers intact. I also grabbed images of the usually suspects for wear and tear in an attempt to convince those who aren't (there's a few out there - mostly facebook experts) that the car has been rolled back or had a changeover cluster and other parts. I'm convinced that isn't the case, unless someone has changed every single component on the car, in which case, it's an amazing rebuild (which it isn't) and would be worth the cash monies I paid anyways. Ok i'm losing track of my point... See the images below.
  10. Thanks for the kind words. I know the feeling of no time. I've two girls of my own and find myself super time poor almost always. We all live vicariously through one another here. Glad you're enjoying it! [emoji16] If you're a fan of long stories written by me check out my wifes car that i write about. https://www.sau.com.au/forums/applications/tapatalk/index.php?/topic/475448-The-Stock-R33-GTR The Stock R33 GTR
  11. Glad to hear it all worked out. You know where we are if you ever need help. [emoji16][emoji106]
  12. Nice. It looks super clean. Congrats on such a great car. I'm sure the wagoneers would like to see it! It might be worth starting your own build/maintenance thread.
  13. Almost new Cat for sale. This cat came with my car from WA. I would suggest (although I can't confirm) that this cat was fitted for almost no time. I'd suggest the moment it passed inspection/emission the cat was pulled from the car and boxed up. There is no gasket on the flanges as they look to be in excellent condition. The cat has been painted black, i assume in high temp paint for that stealth look (probs helps rust too). Unfortunately, I have no idea what this cat is or its make or model. Please don't request cell details, i have no idea (apologies in advance). Asking $20. Pick up preferred, but happy to box for someone arranging their own shipping. I'm in the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne. You can reply to this thread or DM me. I'm active here so should see your replies.
