Tell us a little about your car:
Nissan Skyline R32 with an EP Racing custom body kit. I run a 1.5JZ Engine giving me a whopping 610BHP. A lot of my car is custom made to really set it apart from the other skylines that compete, Including my exhaust set up, Intercooler and massive 100mm Rad. I’ve got an Exedy Compe-D clutch to match the famous Japspeed Scooby and an Owen Developments GTX3582 Turbo for extra boost.
