Choose your Poison: Evolution 6... or Skyline R34?

Postby Sanctifier » January 31st, 2016, 2:20 pm

Yup, these days the Nissan GT-R ('R35') is definitely a 2nr's "dream car"... but what about yesterday?
Which was better...

the ol' school Image Evolution 6

... or the Nissan Skyline R34 :?:

Was the R34 really "King-of-the Hill" as we've been led to believe all these years?... or was that just an Urban Legend?

IIRC passions used to run deep over this... so post your links to articles (if available) to prove your point.
I already opened the poll.. so prove me wrong... IF you can! :twisted: 8-)

^ ^ ^ 2nr is the 1st R34 fan... 'Voting' but no post?... No proof?

"King-of- the Hill"...: Yuh have any links to 0-60, 0-100 mph or 1/4 mile "times" to prove it?

As much as I like the evo,I would pick the r34 over it.Just the rumble of that engine is orgasmic.I would love to own both an evo and r34 some day.

^ ^ ^ Yup , I'll give you that. The sound of a clean running straight-6 revving to red-line gives me goose-bumps!
Fell in love with that sound marshalling @ Wallerfield in the '70's, listening to Davey Maharaj's Samurai Datsun 240Z.

"King-of- the Hill"...: Which one had 'the edge' in performance? (Acceleration? Top speed? Handling? Brakes?)

Any "links" to back up that opinion?

Having driven and owned both, I would prefer the R34 (still have it!). Prefer is the key word as I never raced either one of them.
Which I think would be faster up the hill? My bet would go on the EVO 6..lighter and the AYC works wonders!!

English, cycles... English, boi! Yup I love those too BUT...

The thread is about Skyline R34 vs Evo 6 GSR/RS. Pick your favourite & then "post url" to prove which is quicker/faster/corners better etc. Yup personal opinions welcome... but about these two, panda.
Sanctifier wrote:Yup, I have my proof waiting for the R34 fans... & ah put on mi nomex suit already! :lol:

FD3 and AE86 is for another thread. :lol: In any case, while the FD comes close it doesn't really compete against these two.... & while the AE86 shines in Autocross etc. it's out of its league here in acceleration, top end, brakes etc.

Sanctifier wrote:^ ^ ^ Bait for sale... Why is a 'local' opinion better than a 'foreign' one :?:
Both 2nrs own(ed) both models but you think only one opinion is important?... Really?... Okay. :lol:

Lookin' forward to the Top Gear/5th Gear clips & yup it might be the same foreign E6 vs R34 thread...
but still prepare to "crash & burn" after actual Road Test data on both... by the same Magazine... on the same day!
Sanctifier wrote:Yup I thought the R34 hype was right too for years! but there's very little in it. Contest is pretty much a "draw" overall.
Really too close to call consistently... Win some:Lose some... (barely).
It all comes down to personal 2nr preference. Acceleration:Top-speed... Handling:Straight line... You'll see. :lol:

OK, but on topic, I always loved evos, always will probably.

but, given the chance to choose between any of them the choice is easy, I'll take the r34 anyday

1) better looking
2) both has heritage, but i think the R34's a lil more iconic
3) value
4) cant beat skylines on that majestic presence

can't comment on performance, never driven either.

BTW kjaglal, doesn't this opinion tend to support the E6's performance edge (acceleration), panda? :D

post a fast evo i'll post a faster R34 & vice versa... Don't forget we talking about OEM ('stock') performance for now.

If you want to talk about "OEM/Dealer Special Edition" models later, tread lightly... you might "crash & burn" there too.
(2nd Road Test waiting!) :lol:

BTW where is your proof, panda? Talk cheap:Whiskey dear! Post some clips & urls to back up your opinion please. :wink:

prefer the Evo 6 due to acquiring a bodyshell and goin thru the proper ways of transferring it to a ck/cm shell. Skyline is neat tho.

^ ^ ^ Yup the Evo 6 is my favourite too... but which is better overall :?: ... & can you prove it either way?
Sanctifier wrote:Why not start a thread about your Evo conversion?... with plenty pix, (+ video?) please.
BTW pay attention to body prep to avoid future RUST issues that will steal your investment in the E6.
Maybe the "Water-blasting" thread can give you some short-cuts/ideas.
