my r34 gtt has a tiptronic auto affair, i was just wondering if there was anything i should watch out for with it, if anyone knew the maximum power it would safely handle and whether there are any sort of upgrades for automatic skylines and if not is it possible to swap to a manual gearbox if i ever feel the need. i have to say at the moment i am really pleased with it especially as i have a 30 mile commute to work every day and half of it is in town traffic.
cheers

rik, i really like it, it feels really smooth and i love the sequential
gear change, its a bit odd though going from first to second gear
by pushing forward, takes a bit of getting used to, i think the steering wheel gears are a bit of a gimic, cant really see much use
for that, but basically driving in auto feels quick and the kick down shift always makes me smile. pitty theres not a sports mode too.
i was wondering if there was a way to upgrade at all if ever i get
bored to manual???? :rolleyes:

na buster mines got Park, Reverse, Neutral, Auto, then 3, and 2, i think basically they're for towing etc and never go out of 3rd or 2nd respectively i think.
does yours have the abilty to use the gears in sequential like mine does? maybe they droped the sports in favour of that????:rolleyes:, mines up on blocks at the moment as im having my wheels done in black. (dont know what thats got to do with anything but hey!)

Buster....

Snow mode (I think) should have the car change up at relatively low revs in order to maintain traction. Basically should have you driving around in a higher gear than you would normally (if it were a manual).

Either that or all of a sudden the front wheels will fold into the arches, skis will appear, the rear wheels will extend spikes, and away ye go!

I have, HKS Super Drager zorst. HKS Induction kit, Trust down pipe, Cat bypass, Iridium plugs, HKS front mount intercooler and a few tweaks by the boys at Abbey, mainly to stop it overboosting till I get a boost controller. GTR type custom built front bumper by Jap Salon to get good air over the intercooler.
GTR 33 brake calipers and discs, so much better stopping

The car drives very nicely on the auto box under normal driving, it goes like sh*t of a shovel in "sports" holding each gear change till the redline. Kick down pins yer lugs back, and will spin the wheels on up shift first/second/third. It will kick down at 90 and take you up to 160 (Castle Coombe honest guv).

I had to have an auto for variuos reasons and I am not dissapointed with it, thats for sure.

Jock: I didnt want to put the switch to "snow" in case it made it snow, well you know how clever these Japanese are :D
