    The V-spec is 10 kg's heavier than the standard model. The differences between the two are that the V-spec are equipped with diffusers front and rear (the latter being carbon fibre), lower and stiffer suspension, values for exhaust and intake air temperatures added to the MFD and the uprated...

    Converting a GTT into a GTR wouldn't be worth either the money nor the effort, an even though it would look and behave like a GTR, it would still be a GTT. The GTR's are not that expensive anymore, and you'd get away far cheaper buying a GTR from the start. Why make things harder than they are?

    Fantasy project thread

    I would get myself a R34 GTR M-spc Nür, have Mine's to their full magic to the car and then take it to stage III. Good thing is, that wouldn't be an impossible dream/fantasy to fulfill if I just summoned up enough self discipline to save some serious money.

    Why did you mod your car?

    Somehow I feel rather young in the company of such old, distinguished and respected gentlemen as yourselves. :toung: Heck, I think it's time to put an advance order on a coffin, I'm approaching 30! :sad2:

    R34 Owners say Hello

    Back then there were no insurance companies in Sweden that would cover for body damage on a car driving on a track inside a enclosed area, so that was regrettably not an option available to me. Nowadays, however, there a a few insurance companies that do, and I've changed my insurance to one of...

    Identifying Skyline models

    I can tell you the manual versions are the more popular over here as well, but demand and supply rarely coincide with each other I'm afraid. :toung:

    R34 Owners say Hello

    No, I had to pay for that myself. There was a few turns back and forth, where they changed their mind from 'yes' to 'no' and vice versa, but in the end I had to pay up myself. Fair enough, I guess, since I ran the track knowing I had bad tires. I should actually consider myself lucky that it...

    Identifying Skyline models

    You're absolutly correct, of course. I was aware of a manual version GTT (an acquaintance of mine owns one), but I chose to exclude it as I only attempted to list the most common models, and the manual one is pretty unusual if I'm not mistaken. I believe we have about 30 R34 GTT's in Sweden by...

    English car part terminology

    From what I've noticed on other international car forums, turning indicators often refer to the "signal lights" front and back, while those on the wings are often called winker lenses. On the breather/crankcase topic, here in Sweden we often refer to the breather as a crankcase ventilator...

    R34 Owners say Hello

    In order to race at the track you had to purchase a compulsory insurance. The insurance would cover any personal injuries and any damages inflicted to the track, including the armco barrier.

    R34 Owners say Hello

    I managed to mash my right arm between my helmet and the steering wheel, and the airbag scorched a good part of the skin on the right side of my face, but other than that I came out alright. My right rear tire blew coming out of the curve seen behind the car in the picture, causing a spin...
