Lets Give Respect - Rh9 Gtr

Recommended Posts

Watched the RH9/CRD crew move this car from the 1st pavillion to 2nd pavillion at the Autosalon on the weekend, just the sound of the idle was enough to make the trip worthwhile.

old story car is no longer owned by rob its now john's and i think someone owned it in between..............runs 3540's now not 2540's...its not really the same car now...maybe only the body...as driveline engine transmission is now completely different. its even registered in ACT with the same RH9 plates .

I'm sure I read or heard a while back that the 'RH' stood for 'Record Holders' of GT-R's that do the 1/4mile in the 9sec bracket on street tyres but it was a Japan only thing.

I might have heard it from an early HPI video I think

I had the pleasure of meeting John at one of our ACT SAU meets and seeing the car in the flesh. John is a really nice guy and stayed and chatted to us for ages. It's a shame that the pics I took were blurry cos I had the camera set up wrong.

To say the yogurt truck was crashed is indeed an understatement.

RH9 = Record Holders 9

This is what the sticker on the car says.

RH9 means, Record Holders of 9 sec GTR's with street tyres and trim.RH9 is only for japanese workshop GTR's not the common public GTR's that anyone ownes and goes nines, eg:there is thousands of GTR's around the world going 9's in street trim but arnt included because the car isnt owned by a workshop.

So even if it ran a 9 its not really a RH9 Car.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
