^ I think a track day experience will accelerate his urge to sell it....coz track day is not about fast it's about the experience, and GTR is lackluster in that category. A cheapo Caterham is more fun on the track.

For the price of a used S2000 or Elise, is it possible to fabricate a manual transmission?

See? It's not easy is it? lol... This just shows that the R35 is really a great car for the money. Just that I rather have a manual transmission...
LSX + FD = reliable fun.

check out rx7club.com

there are a few LSX FD's for sale right now.

or a 20b RX7.

http://www.rx7club.com/showthread.php?t=790006

buy either of these, send it away to get the body/paint restored... at some nice suspension and you will have one badass unstoppable track car.
