HELP! Simple question but can't find answer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

This is an extremely simple question, but can't find a simple answer after much searching.

Ok, here it is...

I have a r33 gtst, non stock wheel without hicas boss kit, so therefore hicas does not work and the light comes on 10 mins after starting car. I don't care if the 4ws doesn't work. IS IT OK TO LEAVE it as is? Or do i need the "lock kit"? Will it's current functioning mess with the wheel alignment/camber/toe? Or can i simply remove the bulb and forget about it altogether. I am told in the r32 you need a lock kit, but no one seems to know if the 33 requires one.

Any help would be soooo appreciated..

THanks fella in advance.

I know in my car, 18 months after I bought it I changed the cluster only to find the bulb was pulled out of the original cluster. I had no problems in the previous 18 months and the bulb is now out of my new cluster. Dunno if this helps ya or eases your mind.

My understanding is that the R33 will go into 'failsafe' mode, ie lock the wheels dead straight, if a problem is detected with the HICAS. In that case I can't really see a problem with leaving it as is.

That said, Skylinegeoff (iirc) on these forums sells HICAS lock kits for $100.
