are they really that fast? if so i will have to trade in my celica ( well maybe) or not ! for a sti with 300 hp. that will blow the doors of a nissan skyline which only has 276 hp. hehehehe if iever do then i will hunt down that white skyline in my area and its on !!!!

Skylines are extremely under rated from factory. They probably put down close to 260-270hp......to all 4 wheels.


And yes, they are fast in stock form, and very easy to make crazy fast.

a wrx sti needs work to beat a stock skyline even with the horse power difference.

Most drifting skylines have the front wheels disengaged so they are rwd. I have read thats its close to impossible to break the rear end free with the traction control on in those.

I've beaten 2 skylines, one r33 gts-t one r34 gt-t, definitely not the r34 gtr, r33 gtr or r32 gtr, those are way out of our league. The GT-Rs have an AWD system called ATESSA and a 4 W steering system which actually tilts the back wheels as well called Super HICAS. They are fast but heavy, on a really twisty circuit, an sti or an evo will overtake em, but on a proper racing track with your straights and curves, the skyline will own j00 hahah

wow you beat two skylines! i might have underestimated them . guess i need a modded sti to compete with this thing. the white skyline in white marsh , hmmmmmm sounds like that might be the one but not sure? who was driving it? kids? or a older person? and do you know what the hell he put under that hood? it did sound pretty mean!

I know that guy who owns that white R32 GT-R. It runs 11's so he probably wasnt going all out on you by any means. Hes not 18 either, he's like 27 or so, but he does look like hes 18 though. Only the GT-R models have AWD, the other models such as the GT, and GT-S are RWD.

Lucky you guys do not live in O.C. and get your a$$ handed to ya and he is not even trying, there are quite a few Skylines at Apexi office. Most are modded for speed a few modded for D1.
Now if I want a fast Skyline I would get an R32 and modify it, but if I want looks to match I would get R34 (If I have $80,000+ to blow). R32 can be modded to be faster than R34 I believe it is because of the weight difference, proven by Sean at Apexi. If anyone wants a R32 for around $45,000 he is selling his mint condition R32 with full on Apexi mod. Not sure if he sold it yet or not though, he was just thinking about it last I talked to him.

It's the most advanced awd system in the world;)
its true.. the skyline is way underrated, and it is so easy to get alot more power out of it, oh and the R34 isnt the only one with AWD, all of them were

the skyline's handling is superb, i would say my 350z outhandles an STi easy.. at tracks the GT-R runs with NSX TYPE R's.. so think again.. Skyline > STi & EVO

The R34 GTR has gotten beat by modern STi's and Evos on Best Motoring a lot lately - including at Fuji which is a power course. Never seen it "hang" with an NSX-R

It's got a stupid amount of potential, but it's like 3800 pounds. Not exactly tossable.
