Cheers man!
Next race? Hmmmm, maybe October, funds depending. I'll do a bunch of circuit racing between now and then though, just to keep my eye in

It's a GTS-t, not a GTR. I decided to go with rear drive as it's alot lighter than a GTR with 4wd. Lots cheaper to campaign as well. A GTS-t has a 2.0L engine as opposed to the GTR's 2.6 litre. Power to weight works out about the same
In fact, we were quicker on every rally stage in this car than we were in the 600HP R34 GTR N1 we used last year. Pretty amazing little car really!
I must have missed that. Gts-t? Not too much chatter about those in the states. Anytime we hear "Skyline" it's about a GTR AWD.

Re: Skyline R32 GTS-t tarmac rally car :)

No doubt GTR is the hero car.

I've owned or raced every version of Skyline (well, most), and made an informed decision to roll with this GTS-t for the next few years racing.

Re: Skyline R32 GTS-t tarmac rally car :)

There are plenty of car importers out there, and CA's auto regulations screw up EVERYONE, not just imported cars. C.A.R.B. alone is a good enough reason to not live in Cali.

Hmmmm Scotty, as I said mate, I made the decision The decision proved correct where I said above that the little GTS is/was quicker than the GTR on every comparable rally stage. Just goes to show horsepower aint everything huh.
Of course it's alot easier on the wallet running a GTS, I could throw this car at the trees hard and not be too upset, doing the same in a GTR would cause some pain, mainly because parts are more expensive.

FYI, the initial purchase cost difference between a GTS and GTR isn't great these days, good GTR's can be had for under 20k now, where you'll still pay 12 to 18k for a good GTS.
