As for the Skyline, I guess an Evo or WRX is more agile in the corners being smaller, lighter cars, but the Nissan is still a serious track and strip car with the right mods and calibrations. :D
    there was a feature in best motoring factory fighters featuring the evo8 MR.

    they ran the evo 8 gsr, evo 8 mr, wrx sti, and skyline r34 gt-r. the mr was fastest on the autocross track they setup, 2nd was...the gt-r. last was the sti.

    all cars bone-stock.

    Not surprising, the handling balance of the STi is too understeery. It's really set up to be a daily driven road car. The Evo and GTR are true track machines.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    panood ko naman yung review ng best motoring sa nismo skyline r34 gt-r z-tune. same weight as stock, pero 500hp and emissions compliant... naka brembos pa. beats the ferrari 360 challenge by almost 2 seconds in tsukuba circuit.

    pero parang ayaw ko ng supra. widebody = heavy. Mas trip ko yung Toyota MR2, atleast yun lightweight at midship layout.

    umm.. d supra obviously has more mods... r32's although are a bit out dated but pag well maintained / restored sya parang r34 na din to, I saw sa magazine ng sport compact car pitting an r32 vs. a jet frm S.francisco to Vegas.. hehe guess who'd won? And Lastly, a bit of info lang para sa lahat d GTR aka "Godzilla" was known to be d best over all jap super car of all time by motor critics all around the world. Err.. "sorry Supra, too bad NSX, but there's nothing quite like the skyline GTR" - Sport Compact Car Aug.2006 ish.. pro legend na kc ito bro. It's resume shows world wide racing history na other manufacturers r willing to die for, It set records for time laps sa famous German track nurburg, trashing its fellow imports, euros, muscle cars. Numerous win streaks sa Japan nung box type pa sya, then sa current JGTC w/c was named after the "GT"-R, b4 kc JTC lang ito but when the r32, let's just say became too dominating compared to other jap super car, japs named it after d skyline. (GTR by the way means Gran tourismo Racer). And guys did u know that it was onced banned in that tournament, nag rule change cla dahil kadalasan ang naglalaban sa final 5 e puro GTRs!!! and that these babies were onced used exclusively by emperors! Kaya ganito na lng ang pagkahumaling ng mga "ricer" especially ng mga hapon dito. Pro one problem nissan must face is pag naglaunch na cla ng GTR R35 WORLD WIDE come 2008 (NOT JAPAN EXCLUSIVE ANYMORE like the previous models), e mawala na ang image and reputation nito as a legend? I love all tuner import cars and not to be biased too but these are the facts. Haay.. maka pag P.S nga lang ng gran tourismo or need4speed- underground, o nga pala need to unlock the gtr sa n.f.s (need4speed) that is the final car to be unlocked there eh.
