R34 Gtt Hitting Rev Limit


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I am having an issue with my car that i am worried about. When i take off in my car i seem to be hitting my rev limit very easily and it goes into the red revs and drops out. Feels like the whole car drops back. Admittedly i give it a bit not all of the time just when i am feeling adventurous. So i take off at the lights and i give it a bit and it just drops back like i reved it to hard but it never used to do it.

I have spoken to a few people and swem to get many different responses but all are just friends no professional mechanics. Some ideas people have come across are it needs the boost raised (as the only mod i have on my car is a apexi air filter everything is stock) spark plugs (so i changed them to laser platinum tip) still did it. and also something to do with a fuel filter but again i got a brand new one still does it. Any ideas ? Just for more info my car is an auto and i was worried it was the gear box.

I am very new to all of this so be kind :( i have been a bit worried to ask.

Hitting redline easily = gearbox the most likely candidate (unless you're spinning the back wheels :)

You would experience a slipping auto as a lot of revs but not much speed.

It might just need a service, but you'll have to take it to a mechanic for a proper diagnosis. Dont drive it hard until its been looked at.

By the description, the clutch could be slipping very badly, do the revs climb but there is no gain in speed?

That's what i was originally thinking - but its an auto!

Strange I don't remember the auto part being on the end of the post, but anyway for peace of mind and to rule it out, I would change the autobox fluid

yeah sounds like the auto is slipping. if it is, take it to an automatic specialist, not a mechanic (since if there is an issue they'll only take it there anyway).

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
