That thing must be a riot to drive!

Indeed it is. Tuned to perfection. Peak torque at around 3300krpm.

The vast majority of Skylines still 500hping around town are not GTRs. They are generally Automatic non turbo models. These are RWD. Occasionally you get some stinkyhole driving a GTT and automatic. RWD. Rarely you get a manual turbo drive past, but it is garunteed to be poo poo and blowing oil everwhere. And be RWD.

So, you are saying that majority of all street 500hp Skylines are Auto and non turbo? Wow, that is some serious high comp action right there...

My manual GT-T isn't blowing oil everywhere and I don't think it's poo poo, my sponsors don't think it's poo poo and you can't win numerous tarmac rallies outright with a poo poo car...

Also, whats with this "And be RWD" as if that's a bad thing?

Most common are the R33 N/A automatics (RWD). These are ugly, slow and boring. Then you get a GTR R32 drive past (2/3s RWD), these are beaten to poo poo and are completely undesirable. Occasionally a 32 in decent condition (AWD) drives past, but it is still a boring grey piece of poo poo.
R33 and R34 GTRs are fairly rair. And normally some muzza cocknose has "pulled the fuse" to make it RWD.

Sweeping and completely unfounded information aside, are you aware that majority of NA Skylines are AWD? R32 GTS4, R33 GTS4 and R34 GT-X and GT-V.

You use the expression Muzza, so I'm going assume that you unfortunately inhabit the same continent as me.

At the end of the day the R32 GT- is in most cases, a twenty year old car. Like anything that old that has a following, there will be beaters, show ponies, streeters and everything in between.
Australia is home to some of the worlds best street driven R32 GT-s, Twoogle & BodyForm just to name a couple.

If you are indeed in Australia, I'd like to know what bum gently caress town you live in because 33 and 34 GT-R's are as common as they are awesome. Especially now being so affordable. Low 20k AUD for a 33 and low 50k AUD for a 34. If anything, a decent DR30 or HR31 is becoming rair.

You make my head hurt.
You honestly don't know two parts of gently caress all, champ.

Also don't take everything as a personal attack, champ.

Your original post reeked of gently caress-head-ness, I'm sure you'll agree.

Moving on.
