i thought that since there are a few R30/R31 Skyline fans on this site (Orion, Benny_Blanco and myself to name a few) perhaps we could create a dedicated thread?

link to Jenesis (R30 Skyline specialist shop - Japan):
www.r30.co.jp

link to hachimaruhero magazine (lots of R30 content):
http://www.geibunsha.co.jp/backnumber/b ... uhero.html

link to R30MAP (R30 Club - Japan):
www.r30map.com

link to R31house (R31 specialist - Japan):
www.r31house.co.jp

please post any other useful R30/R31 links and best pictures for inspiration!
:mrgreen:

Here are some links R30Kansai posted on Skylines Australia some time ago http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/Skyline-Links-t262255.html&hl=links

" Hey guys, I was bored so I thought I'd surf the Jap side of the web and came across these. Some are old and you probably know of, but there are a couple that I haven't seen before. And feel free to add some of yours too.

http://www7b.biglobe.ne.jp/~carcentersts/index.htm This guy does some serious resto jobs then sells them by the looks of things. Love to buy one of these fully restored beasts.

http://w2342.nsk.ne.jp/~ishiura/stop.htm Some good pics of all skylines, also has a lot of R30 toys.

http://www7a.biglobe.ne.jp/~garage-berg/tune-R30.html R30 with SR20 in it.

http://car.scorelook.com/~userjun/r30ma ... /index.htm Lot of pics, and other stuff if you could be bothered navigating.

http://www.carshop-omote.com/service.htm They sell a lot of classic skyline stuff on Yahoo Auctions.

http://www.aurora.dti.ne.jp/~joinme/index.html Everyone should know about this guy by now. Just thought I'd include him as he always has updates.

http://www.geocities.jp/megane56/index.html Just some pics of this dudes R30, plus gif icons of a few skylines.

http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en If you want to translate. Translates the whole page.

Thats it for now, going to bed. I'll add more as I find them. "


I will post up some photos I have collected thursday / friday when I have time between my assignments :oops: I hope my night school pays off

cool thread :mrgreen:

www.utilitas.co.jp used to sell heaps of (expensive) DR30s but they seem to have branched out into the world of Landcruisers now instead :lol:

(their DR30 sedan was the inspiration behind me buying mine)

Here's some trivia....the Sth African market got a 2.8L R30 coupe :)
Image

But looking at all these super low DR30s gives me the willies! One interesting design feature of the DR30 is that the sump hangs about an inch below the crossmember, and it's fwd of the crossmember too, so is the first thing to ground on a steep bump or dip. So any of these slammed DR30s would be swapping sump paint with the road on a daily basis :)

It happened so often on my DR30 this is the mod I had to come up with so that I didn't have to get the sump welded all the time :D

When I got my sedan, it was so slammed that the sump was less than 40mm above the surface of the road.

not surprisingly there was already a nice big dent in the damn thing, and of course this interferes with the oil pickup something fierce - it makes a horrendous whining noise when cold (it's so loud, people always ask if I have a gilmer belt)

here's how low it was:

The later tekamen oil pickups should have a slot cut into the bottom of the oil pickup tube, so that if the sump is squashed against it, it should still be able to suck oil thru the slots...but yeah mine had the oil pump whine too!
