Does anyone else zone out during the bald advertisement and have to rewind the video after half of it has played? Happens to me all the time. Id say put the adds at the end. Your followers are most likely 80% below 25 so were not going bald guys...

R32 skylines are legal to import now. Also I love the R32 the most. Anyone wanna loan me like 100k to import a 1992 Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II N1 Nismo tuned? Or maybe 2 1989 Nissan Skyline GT-R R32?

15:19 Oooh nooo, don’t tell me this dude is an SJW! Are you serious bro? They named it “Godzilla” because they were a little bit racist? It can’t be maybe because of the fact that it’s a Japanese monster that dominates all? Not everything has to do with race, pal.

I was really surprised to find out there wasn't an Up to Speed episode on the RS6, considering it's finally coming over there to you guys for the first time ever ( well technically you had C5 sedan... buuuuuut real RS6s always were in avant form). I thought they for sure would celebrate the thing with an episode. Maybe one a bit later?
Hamsterwheel Hace 3 meses
Another thing that would have been worth mentioning is that their R33 drag skyline absolutely crushed the world record for skylines in the quarter mile. Their record of 7.6 on the quarter was absolutely insane in the late 90's (not sure exactly which year it was) wasn't beaten until 15 years later with Reece McGregor from Heat Treatments and his R32 skyline

From personal experience HKS CustSvc is one of the best I’ve ever dealt with. I had an issue with a turbo kit and they not only helped me diagnose the issue but overnight shipped me a new kit from Japan at their expense and had me keep the original. I wish more companies took customer service so seriously. Yes their parts are expensive but the ownership experience is worth every dollar imo
