Silverstone on Sunday, there were 2 Skylines.

I believe both were Type 33 (?) running in class C. The gorgeous brown coloured one (A 8EUT) I never met, but the gun-metal one (GTR) I had my butt kicked! Im impressed!

Skylines have brembo brakes as standard... what setups where these cars running?

Very clever harj, they must be pretty average for you to go to the trouble of changing my post http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

They are more than average than Stationwagons.

Harj,

Many thanks for putting me straight to the awesome capabilities of a Skyline, im sure with the correct driver they could destroy any other road machine.

Boys, my friend has a seriously sharp one. Dyno'd at a measely 450 bhp.

When he bought it though, in standard form he was having certain other jap machines keep up with him.

Round a corner it was awesome but more often than not in a staight line people were keeping up. A supercharged integra type R (around 210 bhp)that i was the proud guardian of for about a month gave him a healthy run for his money (in standard form). So Puff, rest assured, around town these beasts from the east are not amazingly quicker than our little Jap racing cars.

However, come across one that has been tweaked and it really is men against boys. 450bhp in a skyline is scary and according to a recorded estimate pushes 0-60 to arounf the 3.5 second mark. Which for a car that is aroun the same size as most buildings, is not too shabby.
