Skyline Brake Specs

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i have searched for a while now and found some interesting stuff but still nothing to confirm 100% what i wanted to know

ill post what i have found but if someone can correct anything they think is wrong please let me know

Front rotors

R32 - ??????

R32 M SPEC - 280 x 30mm

R32 GTR - 296 x 32mm

R33 GTST - 296 x 30mm

R33 GTR - 324 x 30mm

R34 GTT - 310 x 30mm

R34 GTR - 324 x 30mm

Rear rotors

R32 - ??????

R32 M SPEC - 297 x 18mm

R32 GTR - ??????

R33 GTST - 297 x 18mm

R33 GTR - ??????

R34 GTT - 297 x 18mm

R34 GTR - ??????

So im guessing the r34 gtt calipers would be different to the r33 gtst calipers correct?

And if all the turbo model skylines had the same rear brakes it shouldn't matter which one i go for but at the moment i have

z32 rear brake set up

z32 front brake set up

im looking at going for the r34 gtt front brake set up to get that bigger diameter but obviously there is no reason to go for the r34 gtt rear set up if its the same as the z32 anyway correct?

also does anyone have any info on the r34 bmc?

I got my self a bm44 from an r33 for now and ill probably install that and see how it is, if its shit house then should i get an r34 bmc or go straight for a bm50 from an r32 m spec?

another question is i have a braided line set up for the current s14 brakes will these still bolt straight up to the r34 calipers?

by the way this is all on an s14 chassis, sorry for all the questions and thanks for taking the time to read it all.

piston size in the front sumitomo calipers is the same so no issues with retaining the r33gtst master and swapping the fronts to r34gtt.

I ran the stock master and rears on my r32 with r34 fronts and it worked fine.

I'm pretty sure the r32gtst has a bm44 as well, it was the gtr that got the bm50

I don't know about the s14 lines. I'd assume they'd fit with some minor bending of the hard line as the s14 got a cast iron version of the 4 pot caliper.

thanks ryan yeah that confirmed it a bit more for me thanks, was just getting some miss info from one site and it was conflicting which to beleive.

looks like i should be right with my r34 fronts and z32 rears and r33 bmc then, shibby shibby i love brakes.

hey ryan do you have that table for the rears as well?

another question i assume the r34 calipers are different to z32 fronts? either they have a different mounting section or the actual r34 uprights have a different mounting section to accommodate the larger discs?

just wanting to make sure i dont have to buy anything else to fit the r34 rotors to my uprights

    • New R34 owned here (from the US) and found a gem, '98 GTT with ~6k miles, super clean & completely stock. When shifting there's no grinding, shifts smooth, etc. The concern I have are 2 things: 1) Only in 2nd and 3rd... when maintaining a slower speed (in traffic as an example) as I let off/on the gas, the shifter will slightly move and vibrate. If the clutch is engaged, none of this happens. It's not bad, but enough to feel like something isn't necessarily right. 2) This mainly happen in 4th or 5th... the shifter slightly bounces up and down, almost like it's riding on unbalanced tires (and I do think the tires are unbalanced as I get a little of that bounce feel at higher speeds, which is maybe why it only happens in 4th/5th). Lastly, and sorry for this noob question but I want to work on this car myself, can someone teach me some on these manual transmissions? Like servicing them, best products to use, etc.; would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
    • Coilovers aren't even the first step. Bushes, subframe position and alignment, HICAS elimination, adjustable upper arms and traction arms in order to dial out understeer. All these things need/deserve attention first. ARBs (There's no such thing as a swaybar. Please, everybody, stop calling them that) are useful if you want to limit spring stiffness. Otherwise you can control body roll with springs. Spring and damper rates are a function of road surface, speed and usage. There is no solution that works for all cases.
    • Define "nothing". Is the starter spinning but not the engine? Engine turning but not firing? If the engine is turning but not firing, then you are missing either fuel or spark. You need to find whichever has gone missing.
    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
