Hey
The R32 GTS-4 was released with the RB20DET

The R33 GTS-4 was released with the RB25DE - None were factory turbo.

All Skyline 4wd uses Atessa, which basically means once the rear wheels start to slip the transfer case will send a percentage of power to the fronts. (Up to 50% I think)

I know in the R32 GTR / GTS-4 you could pull a fuse and make it rwd, I know you can not do that in the R33 / R34 GTR, I would imagine the R33 GTS-4 is the same. Anyone?
You can remove the front driveshaft etc and make it rwd
I am not 100% but I think they run the same box as the GTR
I'm not sure if the R34 was released as a non turbo 4wd....?

Winter is supposed to be more fun in a skyline
Wait, does it snow there?
It doesnt snow here in winter.... wet roads and rwd = slide haha

Yeah I can imagine the 4wd system would be quite useful in snow, they can be hard to get used to driving them..... when you lose traction you have to keep your foot down on the accelerator (reflex is to back off the accelerator). Keeping your foot down will engage the front wheels
Its a strange feeling going sideways then all of a sudden the front bites and pulls you out of the slide

Ummm.... ?
Are you talking about 'fitting' 4wd?
There are non GTR models equipped with the same Atessa 4wd system.

Hi,

I have an R33 GTS-4 (project thread in this section of the forum) and as BADHABIT says it has the Atessa 4WD system found in the R33 GTR, though the non V-Spec version I believe so the rear LSD is not the Active-LSD.

I don't think the R33 allows "switching" the front drive off, but you can fit a Torque Split Controller/Converter that gives the ability to override (trick) the 4WD to not come on as quickly or vice versa. All of that is covered elsewhere.

Pretty fun car to own. I'm only just completely used to the way the 4WD kicks in now and it is exactly as BADHABIT says, keep your foot down

The biggest gripe with them from my point of view is the mix of suspension used as they have GTR front shocks and GTS-T rears so finding aftermarket suspension kits is a pig.

As for engine differences, they have the same RB25DE found in any of the other non turbo 2.5l Skylines apart from the block has a different sump bolt pattern because of the 4WD sump (so no easy swap to an RB25DET unless you get one from a Stagea).

Brakes are a bit crappy as well, and they are the 4 stud pattern found on the other non turbo skylines. You can fit GTS-T calipers etc pretty easily but you need to get the discs re-drilled for correct stud pattern.

I'm concious I've just listed the majority of the issues I've come across so I'll finish by saying my GTS-4 has been a joy to own so far and really (touch wood) pretty inexpensive to service/maintain compared to perhaps the GTS-T/GTR. The 4WD is an added bonus and you always have the option of dropping in a GTR engine at a later date!
