"Touge" is a style of driving, which originates from Japan, where one goes up and down a mountain pass (Touge means "Pass" in Japanese). This style of driving is what the Skyline R33 GTS or GTR models were practically made for. Here are some tuning tips for your R33 for Touge style racing: 1. Suspension: This should be set to be stiff, but not too stiff. You want to feel the movement of the car on the road but you don't want any excessive body roll. Adjustable coilovers can be a good investment. 2. Tires: Soft compound tires will offer the best grip. You might want to research brands and types to see which ones fit your preferences. 3. Brakes: You will need an efficient brake system since Touge often involves high speed downhill with a lot of cornering. Make sure your brake discs and pads are in good condition and consider upgrading them if necessary. 4. Turbo: A smaller turbo might be more beneficial for touge as they tend to spool up faster which can help during the tight, twisty touge routes. 5. Handling: Any improvements in the handling such as strut bars, upgraded bushings, or a better differential can make a big difference. 6. Weight Reduction: For mountain roads, which involve lots of turning and elevation change, reducing as much weight as possible will significantly improve your car’s capabilities. 7. Power: Unlike the drag strips, Touge doesn't require an outrageous power figure. Something between 300 to 450 horsepower will do fine unless you're on a larger mountain pass which can benefit from higher power figures. 8. Gearing: You should alter your gear ratios. A set of close-ratio gears would be beneficial as there are many corners in touge. 9. Aerodynamics: Consider a well-designed spoiler and a front splitter to increase downforce for improved handling. 10. Practice: The most significant point of all, practice makes perfect. Getting to know your car and the track is key. Remember to take caution when practicing or racing. Even if you're in a controlled environment, the risk is still there. Always prioritize safety.
