Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Agreed, the R33 doesn't deserve the hate it gets.

I don't understand why people dislike the R33. Is it just down to the fact that it's one of the least popular generations of Skyline (if not the least popular)?

Probably moreso it's the middle child of the Skylines people care for.

I always thought the R33 was a better looking car in general than the R32, especially non-GT-R variants.

I've personally never been crazy on them. But I'm also not too crazy on GTRs, I'd rather have a Skyline Sedan with a GTR front end

its simple logic... its not the original (R32, yes I know its not the "original", but its the original godzilla), and its not the final and best version (R34)... therefore its the least liked... like 3% less liked than the next one... that doens't mean its disliked... I've never seen anyone that likes the R32 and R34 look at an R33 and go ew...

Ah, sucks that that happened. Car thieves ain't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed... Haha 

Haha yeah, and he crashed the S14 into a concrete retaining wall when he tried to drive it forward after hitting the R33 😒

This is about the best picture I have of it since then, you can see you cant really see the dent in it anymore, theres just a slight wave.

That is a nice R33, sad about what happened to it.
Also its nice to see people enjoy the what i think is least liked of Skyline generations

would look nicer with a GT-R kit on it imo :ph34r: 

 

FTFY

I'd like to do a GT-R front end, but it would need a new bonnet, series 1 / GT-R headlights, GT-R front fenders and a GT-R bumper....its not easy to find all those in decent quality, and not cheap hence doing the M-Spec lip in the mean time. I'll be focusing on more engine related work before I worry about that (want to high flow the turbo, front mount, front facing plenum, ecu, etc...)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
