Hi all, have heard along the grape-vine from a mate that he knows someone doin a Auto Conversion on a GTR......

anyway.....got me thinking....im sure i know the answer but couldnt find anything to confirm or disprove my answer.....

So yeah, are there any Auto Transmission GTR's?

im sure that some egg head has done it, not really sure why you would want to.

unless maybe it was a full blown drag car.

Yeah but a full blown drag car would "normally" be 2WD so a non GTR RB26DETT would be the way to go.

If you want to drive an auto or convert 1, please don't waste a perfectly good GTR. they only built the GTRs in manual for a reason.

but

if you are talking about a four door, that might be a possiblity

i have a auto in my gtr at the mo, while im saving to rebuild my manual for dog engagement and straight cut teeth.

so we thought why not have some fun, shoved a trans brake on the transmission and still beats manuals around our local race track

and as for full blown drag cars, was the HKS Drag r33 not a full blown drag car, croydon's?

as for the idea of someone stickin an auto in a gtr being a egghead......i wouldnt be so judgemental, a guy in our club has a

auto r34 gtr and has no problem keeping up with the manual skylines.

yeah, it was called the skyline26, only RB26DE ever produced AFAIK, very VERY limited umbers too.

i've seen at least one auto GTR, a white R32 drag car. isnt your car is it nizmount?

there are a few auto GTR's around, most are drag-spec. There is one in the UAE that runs 8.2. Not a bad idea....for a drag car. Even more interesting for a road car.

KEAS are currently developing a transmission based on a GM T400 auto...perfect for drags.

There was a guy on here who was thinking of doing one last year.

He had a good reason too, he was disabled, I think that it's an awesome idea for someone with limited mobility, to experience a GTR without being told you can't have an auto one.

I've seen a guy here in NZ driving a fully modified 600hp+ GTR with dog box, with one arm :S it was scary though

I'm trying to find the youtube vid now
