  1. Project S13 - Supersprint/Time Attack

    Yeah, I'm not sure how many meetings I'll be able to do this year. Hoping to do a couple of rounds at Lakeside and hopefully get to Morgan Park. I won our class championship last year so just planning on doing the rounds I actually like and avoiding Queensland Raceway.
  2. Project S13 - Supersprint/Time Attack

    Nice. Looks good. Glad to see it made a difference. Would be interesting to see if it makes much difference to gearbox and diff temps.
  3. Sil80 track car shell

    Bugger. Was hoping you would get this finished one day.
  4. Havent updated this for a while. Lost all the coolant and overheated the motor mid 2016, rebuilt the motor over the rest of the year. Had a couple of meetings so far this year. This place is obviously dead now. If you want to keep up with what is happening I have a FB group now instead... https://www.facebook.com/SamCollinsMotorsport/

  6. I'm running Yaris coils. Always had a misfire with splitfires. No issues with the Yaris ones at 300rwkw on e85.
  7. When you say the intake pressure line is hooked up to the same line as boost controller, do you mean just the pressure feed to the controller? Your pressure feed to the solenoid comes from the turbo outlet/intercooler piping doesn't it?
  8. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    Rear ball joints should be the same. Only the S13 front ones are different from any other S chassis.
  9. Don't use heater hose if possible. Go to a hydraulic hose place and get something oil resistant.
  10. Thought it was time for a bit of an update. My wife had our first child in mid November so I'm been struggling a bit to find time for the car since then. Still got a bit done over our summer break and have had a couple of race meetings already this season. Got a new garage built just before xmas and installed a hoist, best thing I ever got, makes working on the car soooo much easier. Made a new triangulated strut brace to replace the generic one I had. Also stitch welded as much of the front part of the car as I could get to. Added strengthening plates between the firewall and strut brace to reduce flex too. Also installed the Winwood BSL6 calipers from DEF and brackets from 2Fass240us. Couldn't believe how much stiffer it makes the pedal feel after using 20yr old R33 calipers. The pedal moves half as much as it did before, once pressure builds it's solid. Have had 2 race meetings as well this year. Was the fastest car at the first one but had a wideband sensor fail in one race so the ECU went into limp mode. Went from last to 1st in the final race of the weekend. Video below. To be fair I had a margin of a sec or so over the next fastest car so it was fairly easy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNtNveOjZWo Second meeting of the season I had the 2nd fastest car, set a new PB, but had a couple of small car issues including a blocked pre lift pump filter... Video including new PB Photos from both meetings
  11. Solid should work the same. I can't see any issues. Which throwout bearing carrier do you use with the Mazworx kit? I had a bit of stuffing around with throwout carriers and spacing the pivot ball to get it right. I cant remember exactly which combination I ended up with.
  12. Just the normal S chassis Nismo one I think? I had to space the supplied gearbox crossmember down 10mm or so with washers to get it to fit properly. The tunnel needed some more bashing but I CBF pulling the box out again.
  13. Pretty sure S14 and S15 use the same length tailshafts. They have steel on ally shafts for ABS or non ABS. Just ask them, they were helpful when I was inquiring. No idea on Maverick vs Collins. I know Maverick have sold a fair few. Both me and SJB87 have their kit without any major issues.
  14. I only check mine by measuring it before I put it in, from memory it was within a mm or 2 of the z32 spline length. I machined the 10mm off the bell housing as well. I also added a couple of dowels to the adapter plate and box to help line it up a bit more accurately. I also bought my tailshaft from Shaftmasters in the US. Including postage it was cheaper to buy it from there, apparently the yokes are rare as well.
  15. Thanks Sam. Are you still running the Z33 and what kit / shifter etc did you end up using ? Did you just get the box from Concept Z ? Yeah still running it, haven't had the box out in the 2 yrs since I put it in. It looks like SJB87 is using the same kit as me. I'm using a Maverik motorsports kit and a CNC shifter bracket (not sure what brand they are, google images you will see it). Using a factory shifter, I wouldn't want anything shorter, it's already got a pretty short throw. I actually bought the box and kit from someone that bought 2 in when the dollar was really good, so not sure where it came from.
