Nissan Skyline GT-R Race Car Maintenance Schedule - R34 N1

R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R Super Taikyu
In the race car world, you can not afford to have a car break down. It costs thousands of dollars, and takes so much time and effort to get to the track, that not replacing items on an aggressive schedule just doesn't make sense.  Most street car people run a car until it breaks. Most will change the oil, maybe some other light maintenance, but not anything like this.

This schedule is for a race car, under race conditions.  Nethertheless it is interesting information. Most GT-R owners probably never think of a transmission overhaul, ATTESA pump, or rear differential overhaul on a schedule. This schedule was originally from Tetsuo Suzuki from Shift Racing. They ran the Falken R34 GT-R in N1, and at the Nurburgring.

Super Taikyu /N1 Schedule Replace/ Rebuild
Engine Overhaul 3000 km ~1800 miles
Power Steering Belts 3000 km ~ 1800 miles
Power-steering pump  6500 km ~4000 miles
