    Can you believe it...

    There has been a lot of crap posted on this car and other cars that might/will beat it. For anyone doubting what these cars can do then visit this page...

    http://www.exvitermini.com/records.htm

    For anyone doubting they are capable of running quick quarters, have a look at 2 converted single turbo GT-Rs running in New Zealand both doing 9 secs. http://www.skylinesdownunder.co.nz/

    For anyone thats wants to find some real information on GT-Rs and what they are capable off, then I suggest you go to http://babelfish.altavista.com/ (A translator) go to http://www.yahoo.co.jp translating Japanese to English and search for RH9 and see what you find about the infamous 9 sec street legal GT-R club in Japan. Also see RH9 referenced at http://www.idrag.co.nz/results/pro.html

    I think it is funny that you americans are so closed off to the outside world, go to any search engine and search for rh9 gt-r. Just cause it's written in Japanese it doesn't mean you can't read it.

    Oh and if you want to see over 1300hp on a hub dyno from all 4 wheels then buy this video and pause when needed to view the screen, not that it doesn't show enough replay's http://www.firewire.co.nz/firewire-usa/ho2000.asp or here http://www.firewire.co.nz/ho2000.asp The cover of the video even say's 1300hp.
     
  2. mr.sr20. i fully respect the skyline and i would be a dream of mine to own one. i do not however believe that all american cars are junk as is professed by many japanese or european car lovers. personally i like japanese and european cars more, but the skyline is by no means the only car to surpass 1000 horses and run 9 second quarter miles.

    o yah the r-32 combat runs a 8.8 on drag radials. hks has a r-32 and r33 that run like 7's. i blieve top secret has one that runs on methanol and revs past 10000 taht achieves similar gains.

    however in road racing the skyline does not use its awd setup (as in jgtc). will agree with you that its a great car though.

    i am more looking forward to the tommy kaira zz-ii because its employement of the skyline engine and the fact that it has better aerodynamics than the skyline.

    does the skyline gts model use the same engine as the gt-r?
     
  3. I did not say American cars suck, I said Americans seem to be closed off to the rest of the world. That doesn't imply all Americans walk around with there eye's closed, just that a lot of them don't want to know what is good/bad about the otuside world and don't want to change.

    The GT-R has raced in Australian in the V8 supercar serious in 4wd. It got banned along with the Ford Seirra Cosworth cause it keep on winning and the local 600+hp V8 couldn't match them for pace.

    Not sure where you are getting you 1/4 figure's from but the previous post of mine has a link to all known records in Japan. These are AFAIK the current records.

    As for what they run on (gas wise). A drag GT-R like HKS' will not be running on pump gas that is for sure.

    HKS make a 11,000rpm head kit for GT-R's They do 3 stages with the 3rd being good for 11,000rpm redline. You can buy these and put them on your GT-R just like any other HKS part. It is quite common for the Japanese to do this as many aftermarket companies sell 320kph speedo and 10,000rpm redline guages off the shelf.

    I was just trying to say these are the facts about the GT-R, if you are a person who doesn't believe it then go and do a little research and see what you find. This Blitz GT-R is not the best of the best GT-R out there it is far from it, compare it to Veilside's 1100 4whp R34 which had been driven on the street, done 1km at an average of 346kph, and done the quarter in 8.67sec and I am sure many people would want that instead of this blitz car. But anyway.. just helping people find the right information and not listen to peoples made up chinese tales crap.

  4. ah i ddin't know hks made a 11,000 rpm head kit ....dammmmn. that's pretty nice.

    anyways the one thing i never got was how skylines ran such high speeds with the amount of drag they have. i mean the skyline isn't exactly the most aerodynamic car. you have to admit that. just look at the drag coefficient. is there some device that is able to bypass this or reduce it?

  6. the only difference between american cars and europian or jappenees cars ist the faact that american cars are more relied on brut power from big engine over 6 or 7 liters to gain an enourmous BHP and other cars are more technicaly complicated. in america it's not hard to repair a car yourself, in europe or japan, you have to go to the mechanic

  7. How much would you pay for a GT-R, myself I would pay from $30k - $100k New Zealand dollars (divide by 2 to work out US).

    Oh and thats $30k for an R32 model, $40k-60k for an R33, and $90k+ for an R34. Now add about $30k nzd for mods and about 700hp and what US V8/performance car is going to beat it for less money?

    Now just because the US government makes it almost illegal to import these cars for resonable prices it doesn't mean you should slag them off and say they are bad bang for your buck. Ask anyone who lives outside of the US what they think of the Skyline GT-R and bang for buck. Go and read some magazines or do some searching on the internet to find out more about them.

    Frankly if you imported a US car into NZ you are going to be paying around 3 times as much as a simlar performance Japanese car. Now that just makes US cars crap in the bang for your buck scale. But I realize this is due to the inflated US prices of their cars and don't hold it against them. Also whhile I am here, I can't think of any country that actualy does import US cars and sells them. Now Japan exports to most countries around the world, that must say something for their prices, performance over other countries cars.

  8. Strange cause I know tons of local kids in New Zealand who can do wonders on their Japanese cars in their home garages. Yeah anyone can pull a big block to bits, thats were we all learnt about cars. Now don't tell me you US kids are sitting in the waiting room at the local garage to get the fuel filter changed, or the cam belt done?

    Well said mate.

    Its all about context.

    In Australia GTR's are bit more expensive to NZ but in terms of Bang for Bucks, they cant be beaten for its creed in the supercar perfomance stakes.

  10. i only have one complaint with the skyline.

    its not aerodynmic enough. i was looking forward to the supposed 400 hp stock skyline that i saw a spy picture of way back in '99, but then it transformed into that horrid excuse for a car (the 2001 concept you seen that? looks like a cadillac).

    anyhow the tommy kaira zz-ii is currently a bit higher on the list for fav jap cars since it has the skyline engine and better, more aerodynamic looks.

    i dont see how the skyline can't be matched in terms of performance. straight line? or track?

    the supra's engine has been estimated by top secret to be just as strong as the skyline. although the skyline has a slightly broader torque band, you get my point.

    the rx7 is pretty responsive to tuning and is less heavy andm ore aerodynamic. rx7's a bit harder to modify, but look at peter farrell's rx7. 555 hp from 9psi of boost! 700 at 15 and 900-1000+ @25psi.

    the porsche block has been estimated to handle about 700+ hp on stock internals. perhaps its more expensive to modify, but i'm just saying.

    vipers and vettes get good performance gains as well. old tech power you know.
