No way! Nightmare, there was no reports of engine failures in the magazine, but by the pictures there was loads of brake issues, overheating, clutchs, and the ivory car had some major front end damage?? Probs a once in lifetime gathering that! I was at trax in 99/2000 maybe when there was a large number of cars, think they had the biggest stand attendance of all the car clubs but not 77I was at that event - glazed the brakes and the peddle box collapsed on the drive home.
Cool story mate, I do love an S15My first experience was almost a year ago when I still owned my Silvia S15, I had never seen an R in person but a friend of mine had showed me the import page he used to snag his R32 GTR and I happened to find a grey GTIR on their. At the time I didn't have a clue what the hell it was other than the fact that it looked strange, fast and had an SR20DET in it which sold me on the spot. After getting rid of my S15 I had a Toyota Hilux Surf that broke down and I happened to be looking into a '85 Fairlady 200ZR when a R popped up on a local car buy/sale page so I dropped everything like a hot rock and bought my R a couple weeks later. Now here I am staring at it from the kitchen window waiting to fix the damn brake caliper haha. Still can't get enough of it, though, never loved any car more than this one.
i hadn't considered engine swapping at the time. I have dropped a REV5 3S-GTE from a caldina in a corolla, it was a sleeper. Raised a few eyebrows in that car. it was fun.Should of still had the gti could of dropped the pulsar lump in and once it gets traction they go very well
