Introducing: The Meanest Looking Custom Built Skyline R34 GTR 1/7th Scale Remote Control RC Car

Passion, It's the thing that drives us to achieve. The push we feel to dare to dream something, ideal, and then manifest that vision into reality. For anyone who's ever fallen head over heels into an engine bay, or body work, or getting your car track ready, YOU KNOW that feeling that drives you to customize and make things as you feel they should be. Your intuition is second to none.  RC Car Skyline GTR R34 Custom Built Remote Control Car This GTR is no different from any of the other incredible cars featured on this site ( just look around; there's red ones , blue ones , silver ones , white ones , black ones ) - except for one, small, detail. - It's 1/7th the size! You wouldn't be able to fit inside it, but it still rips around like a GTR should, and is a whole lot of fun to drive I'm sure, and the customization on this build is phenomenal.  Nissan Skyline GTR RC Car Rear End Spotted on the RC sub, user XJuggernaut101 shared their build story with us of ho

Super Taikyu R34 #2 : Altia

This World Challenge story/series is going to be a little random, a little back and forth. As I find pictures and things spark some memories, I will post. The first car that was purchased was the ex-Fujitsubo car. We were planning on doing it properly for World Challenge, so to have a spare car, the Altia R34 was purchased.

Here it is, the Altia car, before the stickers were peeled, and it was painted white to match the other car.

Same car, new wheels, new paint, World Challenge spec
Steves R32 GT-R , and the World Challenge R34 GT-R
At St. Petersburg in 2006.

We started the season in 2006 at Sebring. After a tough first race, we ended up at Moroso for a test weekend. During the test weekend, the first car, the Fujitsubo car was crashed.  While the Altia car was painted, and the roll cage was in it, it was not prepared for racing.  In an alley/small shop, over the course of 5 days, we swapped everything from one car, to the other car and raced it at St. Petersburg. There is a little more to that story, with pictures, but that will come a little later.

The video below is a standing start at St.Pete. Watch the left side.
