Yea a lot to catch up
Good news:

Yesterday I had to pick up my US style plates (legal) and bring the car for a roadworthy test:

Just home from a long trip and as I had two cars at the importer I had to drive the GTR back and drive to there again with somebody to pick up my daily car.

Before roadworthy test and installed plates:

Been working with enshiu on my car for the past 2 days. This guy is a mad scientist. He knows his stuff about GT-Rs. We spent the past few days changing brakes, rotors and upgrading my gotboost full intercooler piping. Enshiu will post pics of my car later.

Many thanks for visiting me and for having a private meet in real life.

We have chatted and worked so long and I still had no sweat :D

The chat was really interesting and very long :D

I hope you have enjoyed the Netherlands and my Hospitality at my home :D.

I hope you also have enjoyed the scenes in the Netherlands and I wish you a nice trip back to Germany and a happy new 2013 :D

Today I went to a good acquaintance of mine in Belgium and he has a R32 Skyline GTS and we have installed the HKS ATSC.

How it feels umm.............. See pdf.
Be carefull sending too much torque to the front wheels, remember Chubby's Time Attack car had one of these and it overheated the FWD clutch, turning the car in to 2WD and his car off the track.

See the pdf it's the oversteer fix for the Apex on the track. It's not all about sending more power to the front it's correcting the oversteer.

You contradict yourself in your reply, how does it fix the oversteer? By sending more torque to the front wheels than factory spec!

I'm just saying be carefull as it might throw your car in to 2WD mid corner when you're not expecting it...and then you will oversteer!

Haven't tested it yet so will find out later.

Why so careful when only one car breaks all will break??

Is the drive train a glass piece??
