Thank You

Today my blog crossed the  100,000 views. I was really shocked at how good this blog was received by you. I always wanted to start something similar but never had the oppurtunity or maybe the guts to start it.

I will continue with this blog the way it started, letting you guys see the new cars and new stuff that is being developed for the cars. And offcourse showing you cars that I like.

If you have any questions regarding this blog or want to know something, please don’t hesitate and email me at kultivateblog[at]gmail.com

I really want to say this to you, the reader of my blog.

Thank You

ER34 Skyline by Origin

I’m selling my own ER34 with a complete Uras widebody kit. I always thought that was the coolest kit available for the ER34. But now Origin has released a brand new bodykit for the ER34 and I think we have got a winner.

When I will buy another 4 door Skyline I know which bodykit will go on it 🙂 Origin also offers two nice and subtle spoilers for the trunk and the rear window. Love it

Nissan Announces 2008 sports program for the GT-R

2008 marks the return of GT-R to racing, following the transition from the R34 model to the Z five years ago. Continuing from last year, Mr. Kunihiko Kakimoto will be the General Manager for all Nissan related teams, and the Nismo Team Manager will be Mr. Yoshitaka Iijima.

Nismo will give technical support and car development support to teams entering the Nissan GT-R in SUPER GT. As a part of the Nissan team group, Nismo, Hasemi Motorsport, Team IMPUL, and Kondo Racing will enter the GT500 class with a total of five Nissan GT-Rs.

The 2008 Nissan GT-R has been developed with the following areas of focus:

  1. Reducing parts weight, lowering the center of gravity and optimizing weight distribution to improve handling and vehicle dynamics
  2. Using the aerodynamics of the new NISSAN GT-R to decrease drag and increase down-force
  3. Increased power and improved efficiency from the VK45 engine

So we will see 5 GT-R’s in the GT500 class.

Sunline’s new exhaust is ready

Sunline has completed their new exhaust for the R35 GT-R. I like this end tip design better that the design of Mine’s. I also love the heat colouration on the exhaust itself.

Mine’s has been working hard and they have made their VX Rom available to the public. Together with their Pro titan II exhaust this will a nice addition to your R35 GT-R

We can now accept VX-ROM’s for reprogramming. The speed limiter is removed, and boost increased by 0.1kg/cm2 giving an approx power increase of 20PS. Higher boost increases are available upon request. New units won’t be available for the foreseeable future, but turn around time is approx 1 week and all ECU’s are shipped by insured airmail and come with installation instructions. The Pro Titan II will also be available at the end of the month and I can now accept orders for these. When fitted with the VX-ROM you can expect an increase of around 40-50PS.
