...Nissan Skyline GTR 'Godzilla'... *drools*
Now THERES someone who knows a fine piece of machinery. The Goddie is without a doubt one of my favs, there is something extremely arousing (in a non-dodgy sorta way) about a worked RB26DETT on full song...
Have a number of friends who currently own and race modified Bee-R and Nismo GTRs, some have gone the single turbo route with anything from a T-51R to a monsterous T-88 huffer that just boosts like there is no tomorrow. What I really love about these motors is that 1000hp (and above) is not uncommon, heck, there are a pair of them racing here at the moment that each are in the 1000hp vicinity and dropping mid 8s over the standing quarter...
I'm a fan of the R32 Goddies...not real keen on the R-33 bit too heavy and the slowest of the factory Goddies, tho' the R34 is kinda nice...seems to be harking back to the lines of the R32...which isn't surprising, as I'm sure the original designer of the R32 bodyshape also designed the R34.
Having driven many cars from fullhouse blown V8s, Merc V8 Kompressors, a supercharged and NOSed BMW M3, to 700hp RZ Supras, to 600hp S7 RX-7 Battys, insanely high-reving ported Rotors to any number of modified turbo Jap 4WD (like the Lancer EVOs, Sti WRXs, Celica GT4 WRC) and a nasty retro-turbo V-Tec Integra...the Godzilla is the one I'd put above all the rest for pure handling, grunt and just full on 'fun factor'.
