    Ooooh that does look cool on the R34 GTR rims, Any plans with this?, or leave stock as a daily driver?. Always like these with the R34 GTR Front end conversions

    Most of what I wanted doing is already done (long story of buying from a mate and having it built to my spec).
    Running larger turbo, injectors, turbo back exhaust (inc decat) etc.
    Then remapped

    I do have some coilovers in mind, update the wollowy ride with some whiteline anti roll bars. And I have some brackets ready for a larger brake setup. I've already got my old set of R33 GTR Brembos fitted to the fronts, but it's just not sharp enough stopping (is about 1600kg so no light weight lol).

    Also been thinking about seats - got a Recaro in the drivers side at the moment, but a tad tight for a daily.

    I'll get a build thread up when I've had a chance for much better pics.

    Fair doo's then with current spec then, happy days
    Sounds like a good suspension set up then to make it handle less like a boat, but not too harsh a ride to rattle your teeth loose lol!
    Lol at the Brakes, blimey it must weigh a bit if braking still not as sharp as could be then even with those Brembo's on there.
    Looking forward to reading the upcoming thread then, always had a soft spot for Super quick estates/ wagons .

    Put it this way - with the GTR weighing around 1200kg and it feeling like I needed more stopping power, it was only a matter of time.

    I've tried a few pad combos with 2 different sets of disks but to no avail.

    So I'll be running 355mm on the fronts, and 350mm on the rear. But with smaller callipers so as not to put too much bias in the rear.

    More important things to pay for at the moment (garage and boiler), so the brakes are in hold.

    I still love that colour and agreed it looks great on the R34 wheels.

    wow, spam man. the new stagea looks very slick and I love the colour/wheel combo. should tuck those new stoppers under there with ease.
