lol - well the Skyline will be able to brake hard more than once every ten minutes.

Welcome to the club, son - people whine that R33s are too common etc etc, but in the end they're still a damned good car for the money. You've done well.

haha you just werent hanging the vette sideways enough through those corners mate. it needs the loss of traction to turn and the sudden gain of traction from 12 inch wide rears to propell into forward motion.

haha yer but it has so so much torque and it bites hard if you give it to much in corners, and it handles lik a pig. so once the back is out and it gets to a point of no return u jus got to hold on and let the car go where it wants to!
