The R.I.P.S story by Robbie Ward, Owner of R.I.P.S ltd.

R.I.P.S started off as a hobby when I built my first skyline as a road race car.
When it was 90% finished a guy came along and purchased it at a price I could not refuse.
The same thing happened with the next car and about the next 20 skylines I promised to keep for myself.

The hobby is now a full time job, we employ 3 full time staff for fabricating and mechanical work and all of us here at R.I.P.S eat, sleep and breath skylines and RB powered vehicles.

The first skyline we took to the drags for fun (R32 GTS4) was a very basic complete street car with a stock internal motor and it ran mid 12's.

Within 6 months we were down to 10.2 and had won 14 meetings in a row, both the Idrag and Nightwars Pro street championship titles and the 4 and rotary Nationals. The engine in this car had 100% stock internals and made 750hp, it is still in a road car today and has been untouched since it was first built nearly 4 years ago.

From there we started to specialise in the RB30 engine, building 2wd and 4wd versions for guys wanting reliable torquey engines in the 450hp to 900hp range.

As a driver, I now have more current import drag racing records than any other import driver in New Zealand.

Cars from the UK have been sent in containers for us to tune/upgrade, customers are saving huge money and getting comparable, if not better results than our European competitors can provide.

R.I.P.S can guarantee you a reliable 10 second street car at an unbeatable price, if that's what you're after, alternatively drift, track and serious road engines can be built to your requirements.

We have exported to the UK, Ireland, Holland, Norway, America and Australia to name a few with great feedback and results. Shipping is inexpensive and can be done in as little as 3 days.

If you want something a little different done by a team of guys who love their jobs, you've found the right shop.
