That's pretty common bro. Just answer nicely and they'll appreciate it. Some genuinely don't know. My cousin got asked that about his Evo 6.5 TME. His people skills are slightly different so he drove off haha. :burnout:

Sorry, you're not allowed to linger around. :biggrin:

Be a man, do the right thing LOL! Just come up and say hello, introduce yourself and what nickname you go by on ZTH. Order a drink and get to know us lah. Doesn't matter if you've yet to own a Skyline. If you're sincere in wanting to know more about this disease we're inflicted with, then we'll reciprocate accordingly. We were once in your shoes too, wanted a Skyline and needed info and advice. And when I got my first Skyline nearly a decade ago, things were very much different. Forums weren't as informative so consider yourself lucky to come in at a time when we now are willing and also able to share actual knowledge about this passion of ours.

udengfahlawi,

u will be allowed to 'show up n linger around' during our TT only if u meet the requirements below:

1. ur a hot chick/lenglui
2. have a figure of 34b-24-34
3. have a fair complexion
4. at least shoulder length hair, the longer the better
5. attend TT in very thight blouse/tshirt with accompanying miniskirts, shorts or equivalent
6. must not bring boyfriend/husband (if any) to TT
7. must provide with valid handphone number as registration to join the TT

Please note that transportation from house to TT and back can be arranged free of monetary charges (other charges may apply).

:rofl:


Jokes aside as what Mr Pimp has posted earlier, do feel free to join our TTs and gaths. No harm in having new acquaintances, furthermore with the similar interest of GT-Rs.

:driver:

R34 Skyline Buying Tips
Finding an unmodified Skyline is next to impossible so don't let light modification put you off, for cars which have substantial modifications check receipts to ensure the tuning has been carried out by a reputable and experienced company. Most Skylines are cherished by their owners and as such will probably come with a thick wad of receipts, this is especially true for official UK cars, JDM cars usually come with little or no receipts from Japan so expect less history for these cars.

In general the Skyline R34 GTR is such a specialist and complicated car it is well worth having it checked by a specialist but I've listed below some basic things which can be looked at to determine whether it is worth paying a specialist to check the car more thoroughly. As a side note its well worth buying a car which has already been SVA approved, unless of course you are experienced in this process.

RB26DETT Engine
As with all Nissan engines, if they are serviced regularly and looked after they are reliable however as power goes up through modifications, it is natural that reliability will decrease.

Checkpoints on the engine:
Make sure the engine is cold and listen for any unusual noises on start-up, when the engine has warmed check the oil breather pipes (centre of cam cover) for excessive oil mist and listen for any other noises which appear out of place. Next give the engine a light rev and switch it off (this is not a recommended way of turning off a turbo engine and should be done here for inspection purposes only) to listen to the turbos spooling down, if they are noisy then the bearings may be warn.

The car has a dual mass flywheel which can be noisy at idle but this is not a problem. Also check for high oil pressures above 4000rpm.

Brakes
Brakes are sufficient for all but the most extreme circumstances, for the demanding driver a simple pad upgrade should prove to be more than adequate.

Bodywork
Rust is unheard on the R34 so if you see any take a closer look for the cause. As with all cars check every panel for straightness and the uniformity of the panel gaps this should give a good idea of whether the car has been involved in any accidents.

V-Spec models should have a lower front lip spoiler and a carbon fibre rear diffuser. For a small fee you can request Nissan put it on their FAST system to confirm whether or not the car is a genuine V-Spec.

R34 Lifting Off Dyno

Steering
Should be silky but the usual checks for oil/fluid leaks and that joints are in good condition.

Wheels and Tyres
18inch light-weight forged wheels should be fitted to the GT-R, as always check for curbing. Standard tyre size is 245/40-R18. Car comes with a space saver, check its present.

Interior
The rev counter on the V-Spec models is compressed up to 3000rpm. Rest of the interior should be in absolute mint condition and modified examples may have a few additions, boost gauge for example. Japanese imports should have been converted to a MPH speedo and have an odometer which counts in miles.

Suspension
Standard suspension is good but many cars have been fitted with adjustable suspension check that it is in good condition and that it has been fitted properly, check the receipts.

Transmission
V-Spec cars come with a finned rear diff. Check the clutch biting point, if its close to the top then the clutch is more than likely on its last legs. Gearbox should be quiet and engage all gears without a problem, needless to say on such an advanced system rebuilds and repairs can be quite pricey. Traction should be excellent in all conditions if individual wheels are spinning up, this could point to problems.

Club Scene
The UK Skyline GT-R owners club has a massive and passionate membership with no less than Hiroshi Tamura being the honoree club president. Events include trackdays (UK & Europe), BBQs, dyno shoot outs. Group buys are also available.

R35 is around 5 mil yen, calculate yourself. Rate is 0.041, student AP RM10k. You are still need to pay duties even you use student AP. The duty tax is higher than Pekema member pays. Pekema member pays RM135k for R35 duty tax. Only reg in langkawi you can get it at RM250k for a R35. Because it is a duty free zone. But Prepare another RM90k as bond when you take it out from langkawi and can only stay 3 months max outside langkawi.
Other than this, I don't think you can get a R35 unreg this price or else doggy
