Hey,

I was a great fan of the nissan pulsar GTi-R, and eventually used to own a black one, was great to drive, handled like a dream, 4wd with a 2litre turbo and the dump valve....maybe get another one some day!

just wondered if there was ever a slot car version and if anyone knows where to get one, or has pics of one. thanks

Darren

I'm pretty sure nobody makes one. The gti-r was never realeased down under so i had to settle with a n/a n15ii sss, still shocked a whole lot of yob's with v8's! There may be an obscure resin manufacturer out there that can help you out, but nothing mainstream, and I doubt you'll see one until cars of this vintage return to vogue.

I don't think anyone has produced one.
Quite a rare car these day, I guess most of them have been crashed!
Didn't they have a reputation for eating clutches / gearboxes?

ahh, might tryn give a few companies/ppl emails n see if i can get one made.

with the gearboxes, yeah, they put out 240bhp, usually once u got it to 300bhp, the gearbox would start to give.
could gt a gearbox fitted for bout £600 which would ee you upto 450bhp(ish, i think)

just got rid of mine as theyre not really practical as a primary car. wouldnt mind gettin one, but about to start a modern apprenticeship in plumbing so hopefully be able to get a garage queen one.

think theyre still possible to get imported (to the UK) fairly easily, just trying to find a good condition one

knew a guy that managed to get a white one, and under the arches where still white, was mint, but he got a g/f and she told him to get rid

know another guy that started a project "R-700", was tryin to get 700bhp out of one, will need to go on the owners club n find out if he done it

anyways...will email about n see if i can get anyone to make the pulsar n will post back

yeah the name rings a bell, that Rishi-GTiR was the guy, that last i heard, was doin the 700bhp one.
yeah there's a few cracking vids of them, 5k revs and launch, was unbelieveable, n used to get older people at traffic lights reving and laughin, then when lights went green, theyd tryn cut in....the looks i got as suddenly, the "ned car" was shifting and dumping like no ones business! just hated ppl tryn to cut in


awesome cars tho, i DID NOT manage to get 155mph out of mine....honestly...i didnt
