Happy new year skyline owners


Recommended Posts

Wow. 2005! The R32 GTR is over 15 years old! My 95 model R33 is 10 years old!!!

Funny, when discussing "old school" performance cars Vs latest Hi-tech Jap cars to be reminded that our cars are older than VS commodores!(OK- exclude R34s)

But even now, how good are they? Ahead of their time, I still think the Skyline is the best all round performance car available. While still fairly expensive to modify, the performance gains are amazing considering their displacement, & the handling & creature comforts are second to none.

Of course I like all the latest bits on the local Holdens (6L) & Fords (Turbos) , but even after all these years the Skyline is a damn sexy car.

Looking forward to blowing the dust off the race car, (other life essentials getting in the way of drag racing dreams), & getting the new setup going in this new year!

Been getting numerous calls from Theo Wollet who is breathing down my neck with a 9.75 @ 153. Can only hope to get it back out there soon & run some good numbers alongside Keir who will be the force in GTR racing this next year.

Great to see so many nice Skylines out there - keep up the good work.

Have a great new year everyone, keep cruisin.

Munro.

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
