Nissan Skyline GT-R Roadtrip Tools

Nissan Skyline GT-R entering the Corkscrew at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
2020 update.  I changed boxes, a slightly larger box, and changed what is in it. My toolbag also looks different When I get a few I will update this post. 

Several people have asked about road tools, or a kit to keep in a Nissan Skyline GT-R. These are 25+ year old vehicles.  Please at least handle all the maintenance before you start out on any 1000 mile road trips, but these would be some things to include for your trip.  What we normally carry with us for tools, is probably overboard for most. We have had lots of track experience, and lots of these tools have saved us.

How much maintenance does a stock R32 need?

I should probably add a fusible link to this. Small part, and they can cause odd things on a GT-R. 


CLC Toolbag
This toolbag weighs about 49 lbs.  It is constantly being added to, and some things removed. With what is in this bag, I can fix nearly anything I need to at the side of the road, or the track. If it needs more than what is here, I probably shouldn't be fixing it either place.
