Im keen as... I think we should ONLY keep it to Nissans at this stage, then full the numbers if we become short.

As Joe stated, we have priced / talked about this a few times over the years..

As Vince said... keep it to Nissans if possible.  I'd be pretty surprised if we can't drum up the numbers necessary from here, Nissanz, NZ Silvias, GTiR.co.nz and SDU.

I'm keen too, provided the sewing machine isn't mid-transplant ;)
Kieran: thank you for being amazing... Have my babies.

I'm keen. It'll either be a good chance to see what the SR16VE is capable of, or an even better chance to stretch the legs on a worked SR20VE :D

and if we're short in numbers the others have to have  "i love primeras" on their windows

Ex:    fastest auto 16.02
       
NOW: manual DE 14.8 knock maps
          manual VE 15.011

Thanks Noca, that's me alright. Some of the 'maxima.org.nz' guys (me and Caesar's Chariot at least) would be real keen to race.

Yep - I'll have a magnetic decal that says I love Primeras! Used to have one myself - great cars and a 5-speed too, my SMX is auto unfortunately which is slipping (201,000kms)...

I have to admit a Primera or a Maxima beating a Saliva...Silvia sorry would be a real feat, unless he lost traction and spent two or three seconds sitting at the start line smoking up his rear tyres.

Beat a 260kW GTO Monaro at Champion that way...15.7 to me and 18.3 to him...the guys in the little hut at the end of the dragstrip were shaking their heads and looking sadly at me as I drove by, guess they didn't like seeing a V8 beating by a front wheel spinner.

like for like I think you will find that a well sorted FWD turbo Primera could be a good match for a RWD Silvia turbo..

And if you dont care about the driveline (ie. 4WD vs FWD/RWD) then I vote that BANISH once it is going properly again will have not too much difficulty sticking it to a number of Silvias :P :P :P
