Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) '89

Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32) '89This car is specially designed for Tsukuba. I was asked to make this car with no performance or weight reduction parts for someone and I figured it would be an interesting tune to do. After it was all done I am quite happy how it turned out. It is a lot faster than I would of expected. I do laps under 1:00min and only a tiny amount slower laps than my Mazda Roadster tune which was built for this track as well and that car has more HP plus weighs like 500kg less. So pretty impressive for this car to do nearly as well. To get really quick times you obviously have to be perfect and I found not braking and just letting the car coast around some corners worked great. That way you don't slow too much and can get back hard on the gas.
