im sure that some egg head has done it, not really sure why you would want to.

unless maybe it was a full blown drag car.

Yeah but a full blown drag car would "normally" be 2WD so a non GTR RB26DETT would be the way to go.

If you want to drive an auto or convert 1, please don't waste a perfectly good GTR. they only built the GTRs in manual for a reason.

but

if you are talking about a four door, that might be a possiblity

stagea transmission in a GTR?
possible no doubt, but not factory

would be a nice setup if it had a shift kit and high-stall..

i have a auto in my gtr at the mo, while im saving to rebuild my manual for dog engagement and straight cut teeth.

so we thought why not have some fun, shoved a trans brake on the transmission and still beats manuals around our local race track

and as for full blown drag cars, was the HKS Drag r33 not a full blown drag car, croydon's?

as for the idea of someone stickin an auto in a gtr being a egghead......i wouldnt be so judgemental, a guy in our club has a
auto r34 gtr and has no problem keeping up with the manual skylines.

i think you will find the rattle and the crunch will dissapear if you have rices for breakfast instead of cornflakes, a snap crackle n pop from the exhaust is usually a good sign of a nice flowing exhaust, however in this case drop the gluten from the crankcase and run some thinner oil as obviously what is in there isnt protecting the mechanically moving bits on startup.

there are a few auto GTR's around, most are drag-spec. There is one in the UAE that runs 8.2. Not a bad idea....for a drag car. Even more interesting for a road car.

great for a drag car

but the thought of a torque converter in a normal GT-R street-car makes me mildly queasy....

KEAS are currently developing a transmission based on a GM T400 auto...perfect for drags.

There was a guy on here who was thinking of doing one last year.

He had a good reason too, he was disabled, I think that it's an awesome idea for someone with limited mobility, to experience a GTR without being told you can't have an auto one.

I've seen a guy here in NZ driving a fully modified 600hp+ GTR with dog box, with one arm :S it was scary though
I'm trying to find the youtube vid now
