Connor's R33 GTS+T

Connor Writes, 

I bought the car in 2014 (as a 1993 R33 GTS factory non turbo rb25de manual) to learn to drive in at 15 years old and had no real plans for the car at the time, being so young I just thought it was a cool daily. Over the years it’s had a few different renditions slowly progressing towards the pro street/drag category I guess you’d say. It currently makes 1172rwhp on 50psi, which is pretty crazy to think that when I first started driving this car on my L plates it probably made about 150hp if that. Current goal for the car is an 8 second pass while remaining street-able on the weekends etc. I also enjoy roll racing and managed to snag the win there once in November 2020 and have been runner up a second time since.

Current PB at willowbank is 9.10 @157mph on around 950hp.
