R34 25gt-four to R34 GTR
Just thought I'd share this side project we have .
Never seen a R34 25g-four . So when we saw one in a car yard for less than 8 grand. We couldn't resist.
Actually quiet an enjoyable little project so far
Check out our instagram #james_mech for this & other projects we got going on
Hello from Germany
I'm Adrian from Germany.
Before I own a skyline, I drove a 200SX S13. Sadly my car was ruined by someone else So I was looking for a new car, a skyline.
After 6 or 7 months searching for the "perfect" one, I found a nice midnight purple R33 GTR VSpec in UK.
At first I was really sceptical because UK, rust and so on, but after plenty of pictures adn informations I bought the car.
So far I have no problems with the car, have to do some headlight modifications and hope i get my registration after that.
Sadly I cracked the front lip while driving off the ferry but it will be repaired at together with some marks on the rear and front bumper, except these marks the car is in good condition.
Changed wheels already and waiting for my exhaust (tomei expreme ti)
I will take some more pictures when i get my car back from the paint shop
Tyre exploded (Nitto Invo)
So I'm not the most experienced guy with this shit but I'd like someone to give some advice and help clear some things up for me.
Less than 12 months ago I purchased a set of 4 Nitto Invo tyres. Up until now they were great. So today I was driving up the pacific motorway until a motorcycle passed indicating for me to pull over. As soon as I got out I could smell one of the tyres. Rear left had popped on the inner edge of the tyre. There is slightly more ware in that area because there's obviously a slight camber on the rear wheels.
So since I have had these wheels I have not misused them at all. Not even one burnout or anything. Ended up getting towed to a safer place to put my spare on which unfortunately is a cheese wheel...
Drove all the way to the tyre place where I got them last year and basically to be told it's my fault because something called "scalloping" which wouldn't come under warranty. Which kind of pissed me off because that's less than a year on a tyre that costs $200. Prior to these I had michillen tyres on the same suspension and everything and they lasted me for more than two years.
Like I said, I'm not the most experienced person with this but surely I would've thought the wheel should've had a longer life span out of it otherwise I wouldn't have paid that much for a tyre.
If anyone is able to clear this up and give me a little insight I'd appreciate it.
