Based in Sydney Australia, Anthony is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Nissan's legendary R32-34 GT-R platform and its enduring RB26 powerplant. Over a couple of decades worth of experience building and racing countless Skylines, he's learnt everything there is to know about these imperfect pieces of 90s engineering and is more than happy to drop some of that knowledge during his conversation with our host, Andre Simon.

This episode is a real deep dive into the RB world as Anthony and Andre look into Nissan's legendary straight-six to discuss its strengths and its weaknesses, how to overcome the engineering shortfalls, as well as how to get the absolute most out of it.

Anthony also takes the time to discuss the business side of the equation, talking us through how he started his Dahtone Racing shop, the lessons he's learnt, and what he thinks is key to running a successful company in the aftermarket performance industry. There's plenty of good advice here for anyone wanting to sharpen up their performance business or looking to start something new.

Before wrapping up, Anthony also discusses the ins and outs of the two-time WTAC-winning Hammerhead Nissan S13 Silvia, which his shop is now looking after since it changed hands last year.

Even if RBs and GT-Rs aren't your thing, this episode makes for a great listen for anyone with an interest in engine building, motorsport, or business success in the industry.
