"DREAMCRUSHER" JUN 9 second R32 GTR
This is a feature we did on Robert Marjan's R32 GTR in Motive DVD. At the
time it ran a 10-flat on a slippery runway surface. The car has since run a
9.28@155mph at WSID.
Car was built and tuned by Croydon Racing Developments in Sydney Australia

~NOT MINE~ R32 skyline ...2.8 liter stroker 6 speed hks transmission low Boost..
The HCR32 Skyline debuted in May 1989. It was available as either a 2-door
coupe or 4-door sedan/saloon, all other bodystyles were dropped. It
featured several versions of the RB-series straight-6 engines, which had
improved heads (the twelve port inlet was gone) and used the ECCS
(Electronically Concentrated Control System) injection system. Also
available were an 1800 cc 4 cylinder GXi model. Most models had HICAS four
wheel steering, with the rear wheels being hydraulically linked to the
front steering. The 2.5 litre version became one of the first cars made in
Japan to feature a 5 speed automatic transmission. The GTS-t Type M
included larger five-stud 16 in wheels, four piston front callipers and
twin piston rears. ABS was optional (except for the GT-R), viscous LSD was
standard on all turbo models and
optional on all but the GXi.
GXi Type-X - 1.8 L CA18i I4, 91 hp (67 kW)
GTE Type-X - 2.0 L RB20E I6, 125 hp (93 kW, 172 N m)
GTS Type-X, S, J - 2.0 L RB20DE I6 155 hp (115 kW, 184 N m)
GTS-25 Type-X, S, XG - 2.5 L RB25DE I6, 180 hp (132 kW, 231 N m)
GTS-t Type-M - 2.0 L RB20DET turbo I6,
212 hp (158 kW, 263 N m)
GTS-4 - 2.0 L RB20DET turbo I6, 212 hp

V-Spec II variants.
The GT-R returned with twin ceramic turbochargers, all-wheel steering, all wheel
drive, and 280 hp (206 kW) at 6800 rpm. The RB26DETT engine actually
produced ~320 hp, but it was unstated due to the Japanese car makers'
"gentlemen's agreement" not to exceed 206 kW (276 hp). The engine was
designed for ~500 hp in racing trim, and then muzzled by the Exhaust, Boost restriction, and ECU. The electronic Boost control had a small physical
restriction in the control lines. It was marked in yellow so the new owner
could remove it and enjoy a safe factory Boost increase. The GT-R had Super HICAS, a
more advanced computer controlled four wheel steering system using electric
The GT-R had a significantly larger Intercooler, larger brakes, and
aluminum front guards and bonnet. Other distinguishing features include
flared front and rear wheel arches. More supportive seats were fitted, and
the turboBoost gauge and digital clock were removed
from inside the instrument cluster. The clock was replaced with a torque
meter that indicated how much torque was being delivered to the front
wheels (0%-50%). Oil temp, voltage and turboBoost
gauges were fitted below the climate control.
The Porsche 959 was Nissan's target when designing the GT-R. The chief
engineer, Naganori Itoh, intended to use the car for Group A racing, so the
design specification was drawn up in conjunction with a copy of the Group A
rules. The Nordschleife production car record at the time of development
was 8'45" - set by a Porsche 944. Nissan test driver Hiroyoshi Katoh reset
the record with a time of 8'20". Best Motoring managed 8'22"38.
The R32 GT-R dominated JTCC, winning 29 races from 29 starts, taking the
series title every year from 1989-1993. It took 50 races from 50 starts
from 1991-1997 (latterly R33) in the N1 Super Taikyu. The R32 GT-R was
introduced in the Australian Bathurst 1000 touring-car race to compete
against GM Holden and Ford V8 saloons, winning in 1991 & 1992. This success
led to the Australian motoring press naming the car Godzilla due to it
being a "monster from Japan" and as Australia was the first export market
for the car the name quickly spread. However, the GT-R's success was a
major contributing factor, sounding the death knell of Group A Touring Car
racing; with the formula being scrapped soon after. JTCC was similarly
blighted by the R32 GT-R, and splintered soon after, leading to the switch
to the Supertouring category and also indirectly to the GT500 category of
When originally designed, the homologation rulebook mandated 16" wheels, so
that's what the GT-R got. This limited the size of the brakes, and the
Nissan four pots weren't really up to competition use. A later change in
rules allowed 17" wheels, so in February 1993 the GT-R V-spec (for Victory)
emerged wearing 17" BBS mesh wheels covering larger Brembo brakes. The
clutch actuation changed from a push to a pull system, and the car received
an active rear differential. A year later the V-Spec II appeared with a new
sticker and wider tires
SP Engineering: 800hp Nissan Skyline R32 GTR - Trailer
The final release of the R32 film will not be launched until early October,
so we thought we'd give you a sneak look with a trailer.
This R32 is putting down just over 800rwhp on race fuel, and just shy under
800rwhp on 91 Octane. The complete build has been installed and fabricated
by SP Engineering techs.
