    OK time for a bit of an update. First a few new photo's then my bad luck story Car was all ready after a 10 month build. Was realy excited to be hitting the track again. First outing for the car resulted in a faulty fuel pump early in the day, and as i was bringing the car in to park the oil pressure gauge buzzer went off. 0psi.... Switched it off straight away. Pushed it back on the trailer and went home. Got a whole 2 laps in for the day.. so yeah a shit day. Pulled the engine down a few days later, crank was quite badly worn, bits of copper and alloy from the bearing were everywhere. Anyways a good bloke i know always has a bit of stuff laying about, sold me a blacktop sr for $450, had been in a fire bombed car but apart from a bit of fire foam seemed ok. Flushed it a few times with oil, new water pump and just put the bits off my old motor back on. Got it up and running a few days later, did a comp test, 150psi on all cylinders (quite happy) Installed new bosch 040, flushed fuel take (crap in tank i believe killed the old one) and got a t28 to replace the t25 off the old motor as it was making a bit of smoke Also put some different engine mounts in and a new gearbox as old one had bad sincro's On the trailer and off to Tas Drift Round 5 After a few issues with minor stuff at the track day (blown intercooler pipe's off and forgetting to put a plug in the throttle body vacume line) Got about 2 laps in and the car started to blow white smoke About 4 laps later the car was no longer making boost. had blown the turbo, oil and alloy dust was all through intercooler piping. My day was over Having a bit of bad luck with the car, but plan to push on
  2. I'll be present, new motor in the 180, hope this one lasts for more than 2 laps....

    ok here's the story, had a hr31 as an ongoing project for years, mate convinced me to come along to a drift day, ended up having a lot of fun so i kept doing it got sick of the hr31 after a year or so, sold it and bought a 180sx shell with the intention of building a full blown track car. Shell had a respray in Holden impulse blue and had a full cams roll cage fitted to it. Thought it was a good starting point. came with origin side skirts and rear bar, no front bar. How it looked when i found it, someone in this cars past spray foamed a set of skyline tail lights in the old girl. not my thing but the old mounts were cut out to make them fit so i guess i'm stuck with them. Car had no motor gearbox suspension had a diff and 4 stud front and rear, no brake and mismatched rims. So now i need to find a shit load of parts to get the car to the point where i could drive it. looked around for a bit One day flicking through boostcrusing found a crashed s13 for sale. Was just up the road so went for a quick look. What a gold mine, got sr20det, 5 speed, full new set of bc coilovers, camber arms, Bosch 040, caster arms, boss kit. Couldn't get it home quick enough. She's Wasn't much of a looker but she had the gear. Sold off the shell and a few left over bits. With the help of 2 mates and a weekend we moved everything for the s13 into the 180 and put all the standard shite in the s13 to keep it rolling. Had the 180 started by the end of the weekend. So from there Ive just been slowly finishing of bits and pieces around the car Added r33 brakes all round (including skyline drum handbrake) & 5 Stud conv. Oil filter relocation (no oil cooler yet) Finished Intercooler Setup(moved radiator back and brought intercooler in behind rad support) Kill Switch, fuse board on passenger floor, cleaned up a lot of wiring Found old bride on ebay and installed that. Got an old front bar of a guy here in tas and fixed/painted that up. Fitted Larger sump. Extended LCA's 25mm Found some r33 gtr wheels, might try and find another pair for quick changes How it sits at the moment. List of things still to do. Not much really Springs on exhaust to hold it together Extend tie rod ends Find T28 find Power FC get tune get wheel alignment put on trailer and take to track and try not to crash.
  4. OK, heres the story, my mate crashed his car and has trashed his LHS rear control arm, car is a 180SX. I'm pritty sure ive got the right part, have put a picture up to just make sure.
