-=HICAS THREADS=-

Some general info first-

HICAS is Nissans 4 wheel steer system that alters the angle of the rear wheels by about 1 degree while cornering and when it goes wrong it can leave the driver with an uneasy feeling about the rear of the car. It is advised to either LOCK or completely REMOVE the system. R32 Skylines have hydrolic HICAS whereas R33 and later Skylines have electronic HICAS. Your problems may be easily fixed with checking power steering fluid level.

Is it possible to update the insurance link? It links to a thread plugging a company that only does bike insurance now

Other than that, great info!

Hi all

I'm looking at an R33 GTR.

My wife and I want a fun car we and the kids can enjoy on weekends.

I have one child in a booster seat (6 years old) and one in a baby seat (3 years old) for a couple more years.

Will the baby seat fit in the back of the GTR or am I fantasizing?

Any advice would be appreciated as I'd rather the GTR than an EVO.

Cheers

Muzz.

The R33 GTR was based on the Nissan Laurel platform Muzz and thus, longer than the R32 & R34; especially the rear seat area - so I think you might be alright.

When you trial an R33 GTR, you'll do a test fit of course.

As with all coupes, lifting a child out of the back seat requires a good back.

Hi all , new to SAU ..was more old school Datto in younger years although still have a soft spot for a tidy modded 510 but am now starting to research GTR's as am older and like the idea of owning both a classic and quick car .. will be doing some research on here so bear with me if I ask newbie type questions at times ..wont be too daft I hope but any positive feedback from the crew here would be greatly appreciated as I wade through pro's and cons of each step to finding/buying/modifying it. at this stage am located about an hour from Newcastle so any ideas for good yards to go suss out would be great. only have time on my hands atm as am between jobs so to speak

Thanks again guys and awesome to be around fellow petro-files with damn fine taste in cars ...

Hehe...

Several yards have been under investigation of late Jasen.

There's a thread I started SAU > Importing Vehicles > If You're Happy With Your Import Car, Who Brought It In?

...or something like that.

I did a head count.

Hope this helps a bit.
