    I think Driftextreme said many Japanese kids want 64 Impala lowriders like the rappers have, but I've heard there are some pretty wild F-Bodies and some Mustangs down there. Personally I'd love to go cruisin around Japan in a big Super Duty Diesel (with full load of Banks diesel components) during the day and then unleash a Z06 at night. (And yes I do realize how high gas prices are in Japan)

    There are a few serious 3000gt enthusiest out there, one was featured in a recent SCC or some other magazine, i dont really recall.

    But im sure stripped down and lightly upgraded they are serious cars.

    If you want compare cars in that sense it comes down to has the most cash to put the trickest things in their ride!

    the rb26 in the skyline is undoubtedly better for upgrades than the 3000gt but I'd rather compare them in a stock stat..

    the r33's definitely edges out the 3000gt in performance.

    All those gadgets and luxury options on the 3000gt sure weight it down... 400 lbs heavier than a r33..
    Infinity sound system, dual mode suspension, dual mode exhaust.. *sigh*though with the extra weight its no that far off from the r33..

    did you guys see the Ultimate street car challange II where the guy who thought he was a badass with the 3000gt got his butt handed to him?

    GTR does not equal 3000gt

    Thats the mystery of the 3000gt, How can it have similar equipment to the GTR and not perform simularly. Probably has to do with its weight.. i know the GTR isnt light, but the R32s werent very heavy, and each new version of the GTR had little tricks to increase its performance.

    I'd say a good battle between GTR's and GTO's/3000GTs
    similar platforms.. twin turbo, all wheel drive, all wheel steering

    The ideal world would be having a skyline GTR-34 for winter and and a 3000GT vr4 spyder for summer..

    try to remember too when comparing numbers its the time of the R32's and R33's when the GTO/3000GT's were around. g..

    BTW, 3000GT is a better car cause they actually sold it to us North Americans..

    yeah...

    i guess your right... if a car is cool, then it doesnt really matter what country makes it........i just hate it when a guy at my school drives a 67 mustang and thinks hes the hottest *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored* in the world

    around where i live....which is in so-cal near a lot of you.......most every guy 16-28 owns a ford f-150 ..........and then makes it as high up a freakin monster truck....

    i guess when i wrote the post about hating american cars i was just thinking about nascar (what the mainstream american likes) where they waste millions of dollars driving in a circle 500 times

    ....it kinda pisses me off

    i guess what i meant is that i hate hicks

    The stealth and the 3000gt are the same car it was a joint venture between the two companies to develope the car. I think they are both dope in the AWD twin turbo package. Why do people hate American cars its so riducolous, every car is seperate from where its produced and even what company makes it, if its a good car its a good car PERIOD regardless of what nationality it is dont be racists guys.

    Copy? hell no, Dodge just paid Diamond star motors ( I think Chrysler owns them now anyways) to build some cars for em. the Stealth, the Avenger, the Eagle Talon, the Plymoth Laser, the Duster, most 4cyl. Chrysler motors.

    why copy someone when you can just pay em to make em for you and slap on a badge?

    Its the American way.

    Yeah i have always liked 3000gt's as well, too bad i haven't seen too many around here . Oh well i guess i am lucky though, there aren't too many people that really want 240sx's around me, they all stayed with civics and integra's.

    - Peace

    The ricer will not care about the GTO because it heavy. Ricer will go for Honda or Acura. For me I will buy it any ways because I really like the GTO when I first saw them.
