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

The Full story of the Nissan GTR

I recently watched this documentary on the GTR put together through the likes of the NAGTROC and National Geographic. I couldn't help but feel a slight " I know whatcha' mean ;) " while they discussed the idea that where-ever there are GTRs people will "meet" at mid night hours to have some fun.

They mentioned the Daikoku Car Park, we had a post up here on the SkyLife from Adam @ Feast a while back when he visited the Daikoku, check that out here.

They acknowledge it being sold exclusively in Japan and I was instantly reminded of the feeling of shopping for my first GTR.

When they said the new GTR design was inspired by giant robots in Japanese Anime! What!! Goshn backed the design idea, I wonder what else it could've looked like instead... (photo shoot for *Spotted* Street Level White Nissan GTR).

Just imagine, some of these Manga comics may have contributed to the design process!

That's one mean looking VR38DETT engine we see during the mounting procedure here;

But all the time Goshn kept comparing his GTR directly to the Porsche 911, why? Shouldn't Godzilla stand on it's own 4 wheels? I suppose the GTR has always been connected deeply with the imagined-world though hasn't it, especially given that time the Gran Turismo Creator won the 24H of Le Mans Race or how about that Kid who became a professional Nissan Race Car Driver by Playing the Gran Turismo Video Games through the Nissan GT Academy project.

All in all the video really does get well into the whole story around the GTR, a great watch by any measure.
