Thanks! I think its crazy of the amount of 32-33 here that the "build" is a big single, wheels, tomei exhuast, and coilovers, oh yea and maybe a momo steering wheel haha!

Agreed! Sad to see.

Most of the interior wiring is done, finished up some sensor wiring to the bay as well as the switch panel which i have off in this photo. Got the mid drivers net ran through the dash to the bar as well as the side net test fitted.IMG_0204.thumb.jpeg.e9700f830761bef983e1e8c804e490c4.jpeg

Couple of small updates. Got the new clutch in, now waiting on the flywheel to be resurfaced and then to mate the engine with the transmission which will be filled with Torco RTF or MTF. Also got the new brake master onto the car.

Hey guys, I’m looking at some brake options and wondering what people are running for enduro or circuit race cars in general. I would love to stick with AP Racing as I’ve driven with them a lot before, but not sure if they make a kit for the 32 gtst. Will a BnR kit fit on the HCr? Or do you have to use a 300zx kit? Thanks for any help.

Pretty sure no-one on here is doing serious endurance racing. I would use AP if I was, especially in your case as you've used them before. I run porsche 6 spots on standard size discs with winmax pads but mostly do sprint races and rallies.

My understanding is all R32/33 stuff will bolt on, and R34 GTR is only different in mounting bolt diameter (14 instead of 12 which is no big deal to address); definitely for GTR and 33 GTST but I am not 100% for 32 GTST. Others here should be able to confirm.

Awesome thanks for the help, maybe someone will confirm at some point.

The mounting points for R32/R33 calipers is same (so that's why you can bolt on R32/R33 GT-R brakes onto GTS-t and 5 stud Silvias etc.). So an 'R32 Skyline' kit should fit (it's just the dogbone adaptors I believe), although you should be able to confirm with some measuring.

Mule engine is dropped in, have to finish up some wiring but cranked it and got 50psi oil pressure then let off. Hoping for first start this Friday.

Welp, pretty big update here.  The past week has been pretty busy prepping for the first shakedown day that happened this past Saturday. Mapped the car and was able to get a safe 280 whp at only 8-10 psi. Turned the ignition advance up top to around 19 degrees and this makes for a very linear power delivery. Feels similar to an s54 with a bit less downlow torque. The shakedown day went well I had another driver fly in for the week and he was able to get about an hour in the car but wasn't used to rhd hand drive so had a rough time with the shifts. He unfortunately had a missshift going into 4th went into 2nd. He said it only rev'd up to about 8 grand so hopefully no damage, ran for about an hour after that and all seemed fine. All and all got a good 4-5 hours on track and a lot of good data. Not sure how I like my current alignment that will be my next change. Anyways heres a screenshot of me in the car.

Looking for some input on shocks and springs. What brand/ spring rates are people running for their road race gtst's? I was looking at the MCA line up but haven't heard much about them over here in the States. I was also thinking of possibly getting a set of custom Penske racing shocks built up, but again not sure what kind of specs to use. I think someone name Ben on here went down that route? Id love to hear some input.
