ECU

Hi.

I'm going the same way at the mo'. Get a second hand stage 1 chip or a F-CON, Power FC etc from someone on here or the register, then get Abbey or whoever's nearest to dyno it on.

Treat your beast to some irridium plugs as well, and downpipes if you haven't done so already.

I've already done the rear wheel drive thing as i owned a 200sx and a MR 2 GTS the 200 was'nt too bad but the MR was constantly trying to spin it could'nt handle the power even in a gentle bend it wanted to scrabble fast as f**k though skyline performance with rear wheel drive.if you floored it in third it would wheel spin and if it rained you could have tried aquaplaneing!

jaffacake i here what your saying but it's a case of been there done that,it was time to move on.i'd always admired the skyline but the japanese bloke who bought my 200 was telling me all about them he said that of all the cars in japan the skyline was king,a legend, a car that lived up to it's reputation,i was sold and my gtr was bought.i don't think there that different than rear wheel drive anyway until you come to sharp bends but even then they will slide if you give them enough abuse.

An experienced skyline driver told me that if you go at a corner at high speed try not to brake as this can actually stop the steering gizmo's working i'm not sure if this is true though but then again i've never tried it for fear of wrecking my car!BTW almost bought an RX7 myself i love em but the only thing that put me off was if you have passengers you'd have to cut their legs off to get them in the back!

Cornering

Re the "no brakes" philosophy.

I find that easing off prior to the corner then drive through is the trick. Braking does seem to mess up the car happily shooting you round the bend without much concern for what you expect it to do (i.e. hurtle off the road).

The only car I've ever driven where cornering is a case of 'point & shoot'. :D
