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

RB25DET - Automatic

A while back I came across this RB25 engine and transmission for sale on eBay. It piqued my interest, as I have always been a bit of a drag race guy.  I think that automatics are the quickest way from A-B on the dragstrip, up to a certain point.

Since 1992 I have had a GMC Typhoon and since ~ 1998 had a GMC Syclone, which are both all wheel drive V-6 turbo trucks.  The Typhoon being the SUV, and the Syclone being the pickup. The automatic transmission works out OK in the trucks, although I think I have been through about seven of them.

Another motivation was these videos from Australia, of an 8 second R32 GT-R. RB30 powered, automatic, off a transbrake.  Everyone needs a trans brake.

Then the 8.9@159 mph passes. Not bad, it moves around a bit.

So the RB25 came with this automatic trans, transfer case, an oil pan that looks nearly exactly the same as an RB26 pan, and I have always liked the response of an RB25. I do make fun of them a bit, but the couple I have tuned, I have really liked. The variable cam timing on the inlet side seems to help out a lot with the low end on the 25.
Eventually I might stick it in something. For now it is nice garage decoration.For the $1000 delivered I paid, I don't think I can go wrong.

I still need a 9 second, and 140 mph pass. Maybe this year.....
