Nissan Skyline - HUGE FLAMES + Police let him off!
Kampala Kustomz modified Nissan Skyline R33
This was quite a spectacle to behold! Whilst standing on Sloane Street,
this R33 Nissan Skyline, with drove down and stopped by a few of us and
started shooting flames. I would never have expected the flames to get as
large as they did! Obviously, it's a very dangerous and silly thing to do
on public roads.
I don't want to get in to why the police let him go - something about them
not being able to do anything or charge him for anything - as I'm not
clued-up enough to make claims.

Nissan Skyline 2000 TURBO RS-X/KDR-30
Although making about the same power as the L20ET-powered GT-ES models, the
version of the Skyline initially known as the 2000RS was released in
October 1981 as more of a stripped-down lightweight racer, without as many
luxury extras included (quoted curb weight was only 1130 kg). These were
equipped with the naturally aspirated 4-valve per cylinder DOHC FJ20E
engine generating 110 kW of power at 6000 rpm and 181 N·m of torque at
4800 rpm. The official Nissan chassis designation for all FJ20-powered
models was DR30.
In February 1983 the DR30 range received a significant Boost in performance with the introduction of
the turbocharged FJ20ET engine in the
2000RS turbo. Front brakes were also
significantly upgraded to cope with the power increase. Now with 140 kW of
power at 6400 rpm and 225 N·m of torque at 4800 rpm on tap, the FJ20ET
enjoyed new-found prestige as the most powerful Japanese production engine
of its era.
Nissan sought to elevate the status of the DR30 Skyline as their new
flagship model in light of this success, and it received a generous amount
of changes to distinguish it from lesser Skyline models in August 1983.
Interior equipment was significantly upgraded to now include electric
windows, air conditioning and power steering as standard; gone were the
days of the spartan, stripped-out race interior with the increased curb
weight of around 1250 kg. But by far the most striking change to the RS was
the new unique front end treatment, nicknamed Tekamen or Iron Mask by fans
for its distinctive look. The headlights were considerably slimmer, and
instead of a conventional grille the bonnet now sloped down to two narrow
slits above a facelifted front bumper and airdam. turbocharged FJ20ET models were renamed RS-X turbo while the N/A FJ20E model retained
the RS moniker. The 2000 prefix was dropped.
Further changes were made in 1984, most notably the addition of an Intercooler, revised compression
ratios and turbocharger Exhaust housing to the FJ20ET powered model, now
known as the RS-X turbo C and increasing
output to 151 kW of power at 6400 rpm and 245 N·m of torque at 4400 rpm.
To this day the FJ20-powered R30 Skyline remains a cult car both at home
and overseas (there are still dedicated "one make" drag racing events for
this model in Japan), and is credited with rejuvenating the Skyline brand
in the early 1980s. It also paved the way for the eventual re-introduction
of the legendary GT-R badge, markedly absent since the end of C110 Skyline
production in 1973.
The RS achieved moderate success in Australian Touring car racing in the
mid-1980s with Nissan winning the 1986 Australian Manufacturers'
Championship and sharing victory in the 1987 Australian Manufacturers'
Championship with BMW.
