Nissan CALSONIC SKYLINE GT-R ’93

This is actually the original Godzilla. Many people assume the regular Skylines were just given the name, but in reality  journalist reviewing this car called it “Godzilla” and it stuck forever for all future versions. It dominated all the races primarily Bathurst 1000 events back in the 90’s. To give you a estimate of just how good this car was in the All Japan Touring Car Championship the Group A R32 Skyline was literally unbeatable, winning 29 races from 29 starts across four seasons of total dominance. That is absolutely insane! It did so well every time it raced, but later got banned for using turbos when they became outlawed. It’s history and spirit will live on forever in every GT-R to come.

Due to it’s insane history I had to do a tune to honour it. Since it dominated Bathurst (Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit in GT6) that is exactly where I tuned it for. I am not entirely sure of the exact specs used back in the day so I maxed it out. It is almost maxed out stock anyways, but I did keep racing hard tires. It drives really well on the track with little issues on this tight track. I added a touch of oversteer since this track has a lot of tight corners, but do make sure to break in the correct points as it will understeer on the tight corners. I had a ton of fun driving it with a time of low 2:02’s if anyone thinks they can beat me. I’m sure it would be a ton of fun racing it with a wheel here as there are so many track variations. Also I assume it will work fine at other tracks and be great at bumpy ones too.

If you like the Skyline the Team Shmo Store has a great design Saying “Godzilla” with a R32 coming through.

    Haha, so how did they plan on hiding turbos…

    • lol well it was the opposite. It already had turbos and was winning and the league randomly changed the law which forced them out. Pretty unfair honestly.

        I need some advice. I’m struggling to find a car capable of winning the rain races in career mode. I haven’t put too much thought into it and my typical winners haven’t helped. The car has to be rear drive which creates problems of course. I’m thinking something lightweight with a low torque diff would work well. LCC Rocket perhaps? Thanks

        • What are the exact regulations and course?

          • SgtStig

            Oh man I can’t remember and won’t be playing for a few hours. They must be two wheel drive (probably rear only) under 650 PP, maybe 600 but I did use the FXX once so more likely 650. And one of the courses is SPA. That’s the only one I remember. Sorry. Tires are rains I would guess

          • Ya I’m not sure. I have tags at the bottom click on whatever pp level suits it best and it will list all the cars.

          • SgtStig

            Alright thanks!

    Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione drift build?

    • Don’t have the car but I plan on doing a few different tunes for it once I get it.

      • Connor Murray

        That would be awesome thanks

    When you say “Best Parts”, do you include the Body Stabilizing thingy in GT Auto?

    • I do not. That’s an optional extra part like rims to me. Best parts are the best of actual parts like high rpm turbo for example.
