Do you support Norwich City? Why do you have that large horrible green and yellow sticker on your car?

My 1993 NSX which I did a face lift in 2005.

Fucking sweet guys. <3 Finally some JDM love up in here. The facelifted NSX looks so damn clean.

For the R33, how does the GTS25T differ from the GTR Vspec? Also, are you in the states? I always heard the R33s were the easiest to import. Also, Maryland just had its first legally imported R32 GTR come in the other week under the 25 year rule. Really looking forward to more coming over.

We love JDM:D= (Japan Dominates Motoring)   agreed, the nsx is hot.

The main differences between the Gts25t and the GTR. performance wise. are that the GTR is 200kg heavier. due to the awd. and they have a tendency to under steer.

also, when making big power, the drive shafts snap like a twig. and the V-spec has not much to set it apart from a regular gtr. -just a few little tweaks.

while the engines are slightly different. with the RB26 being epic. the RB25 is a solid, smooth engine, that can easily hold 600+hp on stock internals.

also, the R33 GTR is a bit "Fatter" than the R32.   so with the slimmer body, less weight,crisper handling, and rwd. i went for the Gts25t. and love it.

 

-people who say you should only get a GTR, are just spectators.

also, my finance company approved me to buy whatever i chose. and i checked out a R32 Gtr, which was sweet. but fully done to another person's liking. And i wanted a fresh canvas.

so, no regrets. it's a monster.  and i have roasted a few "approved" cars in it. but i get munched by a certain EVO 7 everytime though.:fu:

 

up until now, spent just under $10.000 usd.  which can buy you an AMG E55 in japan. so not a choice dictated by money. ( just for the snobs)

 

R33's are the easiest to import, as they have passed crash tests.  and while there is a lot of hysteria bout them in the states, they CAN be imported. but it is not cheap. if i was living stateside, would totally go for the 300zx TT.  Nissan's Flagship sports car alongside the GTR back in the day.  cheap to buy in the U.S, and parts can be bought online from japan easily. almost an equal to the nsx. but much more tuner friendly.  a 300zx built to a $25,000 budget could DESTROY most "Supercars".  as could my car potentially.:)

 

Post your Supra!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:slayer:

Just looked a little deeper into the 300zx TT and got me interested. I disregarded the 300zx for a while solely because of aesthetics as I've been favoring the 240Z much more. This is now a option...though I'd take that Escort Cossy over most cars.

The car has gone thru 5 sets of wheels from the oem 5 spokes, oem 7 spokes, Black Racing sports, Volk Racing TE37 and Works VSKF. Next wheels will be Work Meister S1 in 17x8 and 18x9.5.

you have excellent taste.

post #13047 of 15789
Thank you 38R. FYI I have the car for 13 years and have put a good 180k miles on it with 2 t-belt service and one time radiator replacement. It has been an enjoyment owning and driving the car.
My younger brothers both drive the Mitsubishi 3000GT and an E46 M3. My dad used to drive Austin Mini when we were small. So car is naturally in our blood.

-Now THAT'S an amazing garage.   - but the mitsubishi hauls ass right?   they are a 'effing  missile on wheels...........    what's faster, the mitsubishi? or the bmw?   -a different beast to the nsx. 

they are more like ...... wait for it.........BOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :slayer: 

Love me a quad cam V6 twin turbo......

Good to know about the GTST - didn't realize it was that much lighter than the GTR. We never really got any skylines here except for the newest one and so I'm terribly unfamiliar with them, beyond appreciating the wow factor of such a rare (usually illegaly so) car. Keep us updated on anything you do to the R33.

That Monaco Blue NSX, Mr M, is gorgeous.

Here's my Supra from a track day this summer. It's a '95 Alpine Silver TT 6 speed targa (aero top). About to hit 44k on the ODO. Totally stock except for a downpipe and titanium catback GReddy/Trust exhaust.

TOMEI HI-CAS lock kit,searching for a HKS F-con, ECU ,  JUN cams, and a HPI intercooler.  next summer looking at 500+ hp at the wheels.   - gonna need some grippy tyres.............
