Since you all are experts on cars you have never seen in person and drove, im curious as to who you think would win...R33 Nissan Skyline or Altezza...mods to the R33 (which just happens to be mine) Tomei cams/cam gears, HKS exhaust. Altezza, im sure you know, but if not, TODA stroker kit, and Sard Turbo kit...and some other goodies....so who wins? from a roll and a dig....

R33 GT-R, or just an R33?

If its just a normal R33...the Altezza (from what you've said on this site) should run laps around it.

If he was talking GT-R - however he is talking the RWD, single turbo, RB25 GTS-T. Great car, no doubt - but heavy. I have to give it to the Altezza from a dig.

surprisingly you are all right...My R33 is slightly slower than the Altezza. More torque tho downlow.
Its not a GTR..its a RB25DET single turbo (upgraded tho) rwd. And yes it is heavy...but its fun to beat and throw sideways everyonce in a while. cheesy ass interior tho.

nope. the Skyline is ghey and staying in Japan..although im sure some idiot would be willing to pay 50k for it :lol:...i bought it for $2500 and put about the same in mods into it.
Romyo even thothe Altezzais faster, it would take you a while to get used to RHD and shifting with your left hand. I thinkt that factor alone would get me the win with the Skyline

Shifting with the left is a breeze. 1/2 hour tops to get used to it. RHD is a no brainer. Especially if you're right handed - using your dominant hand to control the vehicle is a more natural feel.

Is it a real skyline or an imaginary one? Is the altezza the one that the jackson white's drive when they want to go to Altantoc City? I heard that magical altezza is wicked beamy fast.

Dear skidmark,

We have the G35 now. The days of people paying for rwd skylines in the US are over.
