The R34 GTR’s smaller brother, the GTT is in many regards more versatile and multifunctual. Be it for track driving, time attacking or specifically drifting the GTT may appeal to a wider spectrum of drivers.
Apart from being substantially easier to acquire financially, it also has a huge aftermarket parts presence, maybe even bigger than the GTR’s especially when it comes to body kits.
Thanks to all this aftermarket support we will continue to see cars like Takashi’s R34 GTT.
Before getting the R34 Takashi owned a R33 as well as a V35, he felt the 34 was the next logical choice due to his drifting passion and not to mention his fondness of its ‘boxy’ shape he says.
Drifting for him is all about looking good, and looking good WHILE DOING SO. He certainly nailed it.
First thing that you notice is the widebody from Cross Factory. Next to the full body paint job in Porsche’s Macadamia metallic he opted for a set of HRE 303’s which measure 18x10J in the front and 18×11.5J in the back.
The RB25 is running a Trust TD05-18G turbo which boosts the engine to a respectable and reliable 358hp.
All the work on car has been done by garages like TEPS and Access Evolution so you can be sure that this is no half-assed build.
Takashi loves it when other people enjoy seeing his car. He does not have an end goal for changing and upgrading his car, he believes he will never stop – for now the next thing on the list is a rollcage!
