This was my first real race in the R33. I was on the highway almost near the Nishiahara Exchange, when a black on black Supra pulled next to me. It was an american, and we rode side by side for a few kilometers, when his passenger rolled the window down and asked if i wanted to run. I said sure, rolled up my window, turned the boost up to 15psi, and we went on a three honk roll ffrom about 80km. It was pretty even, with him slightly ahead, but no more than a half car length up to about 240km/h, when we both backed off. If I were judging the race as a spectator i would say he won.
We both got off the highway at the Nago exit and pulled over in the car port and we talked for a few minutes about both cars. His Supra is a 1998, single turbo swap, HKS FMIC, and HKS exhaust. He had some other mods as well, but I dont remember.
good race tho.

That's like the magic potion over here. Just about EVERY modded Supra has like a T78 single and a big ass HKS FMIC, running like 28psi and what not. Good run.

Id kill for an R33. Got any pics?

I've got a R32 GTR with a good chunk of work. First through to 3rd is just plain scary. I was going to go GTS-T and do an RB25 swap but I wanted the launch power of AWD.

I was literally just about to ask for some pics. I wish I had a Skyline? That's my dream car...that and the Supra actually.

R32 GTS-T is an RB20DET. RB25 is 500cc more. Why wouldnt you want to swap? I wouldnt swap out an RB26DETT for the 25 though like some people do.

btw. Nice car. White isnt my favourite, but its an R33 none the less.

I dunno about the race though. A single'd supra would be easy into the 400-500+whp game.

Is there something I am missing?

i always liked the R32 better than the R33. if it was a R33 GT-R i think he might have had a better chance.

R32 GTS-T Type M, what i had in Japan ;)
