Looks like your run of the mill mildly modified skyline with the odd issue here and there you might find when you view it. Pretty cool that he's certed it to keep it legit and the inside looks very tidy :) Id hit that for 8k

I wouldnt be surprised if its had the nuts thrashed off it. If you do go view it, check under rear guards for rubber ;)

Seen this car a few times and the old photo's were better. I like the return flow Greedy intercooler, so it looks factory in engine bay. Also has HKS engine oilcooler, bigger injectors, Blitz gauges, Nismo LSD, etc. Top quality parts. Also has a cert for everything.

Good track car. :D

In my opinion the bodykit on that car above is a bit of a mess. A few tasteful mods though.

That looks like it needs a tidy up but has lots of potential.

I want to know what the deal is with "*CUSTOM STRAIGHT THROUGH EXHAUST, WITH CUSTOM ****-PIT SILENCER "

Maybe BC's aren't in a much better boat. Only thing Ive realised with them is that they have a better build quality. But from what Ive seen and heard and tested D2's have a better performance. So its a trade off between reliability or greater performance. But adjusting ride height properly in the D2's can fix the blow out problem. I mean if you are going to spend more just spend alittle more and go down the HKS path one of the best sets of coil overs Ive seen. My mate has the Hipermax III on the supra god they are good. Stay away from Tein imo they are worse than the copies and they have sloppy suspension. For my Z this time im probably going to go down the Driftworks or HSD Coilover path never tried them so im intrigued how they will perform.


For starters are you kidding me man? Teins no good????? sorry but either you have no experience or you are an complete idiot! Tein is some of the best you can buy and thats common knowlege hence nearly all the top Drifters and lots of Circut & Rally cars also.
D2s are average gear an are Chinese made just like K-Sports and a few other cheap ones! some are made in the same factorys and to a low quality control standard thats no bullsh!t or 'my story your story' rubbish just research it man!
BC's are quite a bit better than D2's but are still cheap but the diference is they have better quality control.
Sure some D2's last and work well but over all they dont.

Am I reading this correctly, engine has a "titanium crankshaft" -

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motors/Cars/Nissan/skyline/auction-359688912.htm

This R32 looks mint on the outside -

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motors/Cars/Nissan/Skyline/auction-357748090.htm


Yeah you read correctly but I for some reason dont think someone with a boost tap, standard ECU and the "wastegate taken off for wof" would have a crankshaft worth 20g++ haha I also dout half the stuff is as that auction says.
Also I dout one even exists in a production car engine.

Yes most are but some are NOT, hence some people being miss guided into thinking they are a top end brand!
I have 2 mates that daily drive there cars and also thrash quite a bit really 1 E39A VR4 and a R32 GTS-T both have D2's and have had them for 4 & 5 years with no problems at all and both are slammed as low a posible for cert and the GTS-T even does a track day or 2 and handles pretty well.
A mate also has some in his 10 second Mazda GTR and they work really well also I think a few Speedtech 9 & 10 second EVOs have run them to.

If you know the flaws in the design, can work around them and avoid the failures.

Boostinz, I thought after I read that part, that you were going to comment on that. ;) :D

RB30DET-R30, could be a joke or is on the fanta or something when he put the advert up??

Have to disagree on that. Thats the one thing they get pretty much perfect there spring rates are amazing for track. I mean most companies offer 8kg front and 6kg rear for Z's its too soft making lots of body roll and bottoms out if to low. But D2 offer 12kg and 7kg which is almost as perfect as you can get for a Z and cars in the 1400-1650kg weight. I'm not saying D2's are the greatest nor would i own a set(unless i was on a tight budget or for a fun daily). They are just very good for entry level motor sports, cheap and a good performance upgrade. I recommend to people on a budget as they are the best bang for buck.

I'll have to disagree on that myself. I tried various different spring rates in my Z and found that Tein super streets worked the best for me, with 6kg/mm at the front and 4kg/mm at the rear. No body roll at the track with standard the standard twin turbo anti roll bars front and rear with all bushes replaced with nolathane.
I do know that you dont know what you're talkng about as I have met you before. If you really had tried the wide variety of coilovers you mention then I would say that problem lies more in your setup than the coilover hardware. If you want to "slam your ride" and f*ck up you roll centres and not do anything about your 20 year old flogged out rubber bushes, then you're going to need heavy spring rates to control your suspension movement. If you set you car up with correct geometry and decent bushes to prevent any slop and control the geometry of your suspension as it moves properly then you can use a much lower spring rates and actually let the suspesion do its job of keeping the tyre in contct with the road/track surface as much as possible. D2's will never be a performance upgrade, they are merely a fairly cheap way to lower your car alot legally and semi safely without having think about anything to hard.
