    Due to the daily grind and work commitments its been a good few years since I have had a good mess about on the track, so I have just purchased this fairly cheap R34 at auction to spank around in, I am fairly excited to be getting out there, hence me sharing the news and a few pics.

    I am hoping to enter something competitive if I get the car to the required safety standard and my skills honed in time.
    It was loaded onto a boat today and arrives in mid march, so I will need to get a move on once it arrives.

    Its a bit tatty, not retro :-( and no looker compared to some cars on track today, so when you see it charging towards you, move out of the way as the "Swamp Donkey" is coming through, its going to be a scream and I cant wait...See you out there.:smokin:

    Current Spec:


    • 1998 Nissan Skyline R34 4 door 20GT
    • Colour change from wine Red to Blue
    • Engine replaced for RB25DET
    • Front mount intercooler
    • Front towerbar/strutbrace
    • Boot brace
    • Height Adjustable coilovers (looks like JIC)
    • GTR Fuel pump
    • Unknown: tie rods, rear upper arms, toe control, pillow tension rod
    • Straight through decat un-silenced exhaust (may be an issue at some venues)
    • GTS-T calipers
    • Rays alloys (17inch)
    • Pivot Boost guage
    • Fly-off handbrake
    • Steering wheel
    • Shift knob
    • Locked rear diff (possibly a welder)

    Will need some seats and a cage as soon as it lands.
    Here is a few pics.
