Hey guys! My name is James, I'm an American living in Japan and I've been "forced" by my Japanese wife to only buy Skylines. My heart is heavy and broken, for sure.
So, I went to look at a 25GT turbo today and while I was test driving it, I noticed that the slip light came on "easily". The road was dry, the weather pleasant and sunny. It was not on constantly, mind you. From what I've read, that indicates a problem with the coil packs. And I had the coilpack problem before on my 25GT.
Anyway, I'm wondering if it's normally so sensitive and perhaps I just need some practice driving smoothly and slowly and perhaps some better tires... or does it indicate a problem.
I'm pretty sure I was at... 3-4k rpm in second gear already traveling at perhaps 40 or 50kph... hard to remember now... and hit the throttle pretty hard. Would that normally create a, um..., slippery situation in this particular or am I looking at a bigger problem? Or perhaps I'm being finicky... It's easy to be so when it comes to buying a used car!
I tried searching for TCS but I just get every topic that 666Dan has ever posted in I was just going to message him, but he logged off before I could finish registering!
So I'm very sorry if I'm asking a repeat question, but I honestly tried my best. I even looked in other forums... but I've been reading this one for so long that I felt akin to it. I was in ghost mode.
