well it looks like my car will be ready to accept the tow hook and I have the tow hook coming from Dave in Austin.

 

So now all I need is a trailer.

 

I see that most people make one from a harbor freight carrier.

 

But this looks perfect....unfortunately, the company that makes it is no longer in business.

Any suggestions? DIY?

 

Any trailer builders in the Texas area?

Back when I had my s2000, there was a detachable hitch. You could tow the trailer to the track. Once there you could release virtually all of the hitch so that your balance was still good. Is that the type of hitch you got?

nope...another enthusiast made one for our GT-Rs that hook into the rear tow hook screw on DBA, or like I did, retro fit the bar onto the CBA.

You'll have to forgive me (OK you don't but I'm asking nicely ).. What's a dba /cba.. And it looks like the car has a tow hook port it can attach to?

All it takes is one time breaking something and either being stranded at the track or having to beg a friend for a trailer ride home.............you'll quickly give a shit less about how cool you look driving your car to the track lol

basically the CBA don't have the rear tow hook option where as the DBA do, BUT you can order the bumper support from Nissan to retrofit it onto the CBA (which is what I did
