Stagea fans: tell me what you know about the AR-X Four!

Recommended Posts

I’m an R32 GTR guy, but I’m looking for a runaround and found a 2002 AR-X Four NM35. It’s an auto, and appears unmolested(which is perfectly fine by me). 110,000km on the clock... whether that’s verifiable or not remains to be seen. What issues do these cars usually present? Anything in particular to look for? If it was an 260 RS Autech I’d be way more familiar with the underpinings.... I’m not at all across this AWD AR-X!

Come at me with info!

Rust, everywhere, including inside A-pillar. 

Turbo making dyson noise, Attessa light, noisy vct solenoid. 

Sluggish gear changes

Apart from that, ARX suppose to sit a bit higher than NM35, comes with bodykit (flare), standard rear viscous lsd.

Thanks; this fits in with what I was thinking so far!

Are you planning to keep it stock? If so I would look for a VQ35 model which has the same power output as the VQ25DET but without the turbo to worry about or the 25's propensity to wear out the timing chain around 200,000km.

Yep, stock is well preferred. I’d LOVE. 260RS, but we all know what happens there, LOL!
