  1. Depends on your diff. Z32 is a 5 speed, Z33 is a 6 speed so my thoughts are to go for a Z32 box. Z33 would be good if you had a 6 speed. If you do decide on a Z33 anyway, get a CD009. The first gen Z33 were piss weak.
  2. Budget CA S13 Track Car - Upgrades time...

    Same here. Love the DIY!
  3. S15 silvia, what should I be paying?

    I picked up a clean stock S15 Silvia with 100k on the clock for $13k...no it hasn't blown up, no there's nothing wrong with it bar a few minor things (gear surround needs replacing, mirror doesn't close etc) so you can find what you need within 15-20k budget
  4. tie rod ends

    S14. It's dependant on the LCA length. S14 are 14mm thread so you'll need new ends, or you can go S15 tie rods which same length as S14 but are 12mm, same as S13 so your existing ends will suit.
  5. 180sx type X suspension?

    I've got a S15 and would definitely recommend a bilstein/king spring shock/spring combo. Very comfy, a bit firm (just enough for the bends, still comfy enough for daily driving) and still the best and lowest you'll get before coilovers. Unfortunately kings are the only thing worth doing on the market spring wise, but would still recommend them. This is coming from years of daily driving Silkroad/BC coilovers in my old S13, and then went PBM for the track. Wifey loves it over coilovers but found the stock suspension way more comfy (I found it too soft and high lol).
  6. Do you have the pipe for the bov, willing to seperate?
  7. Nismo S tune suspension S14/S15. Struts and springs

    How much lower does this sit compared to standard?
  8. That's your problem. Change to a 4.1 or 4.3 and you'll be amazed
  9. I've always had an FPR on my car so can't tell the difference, but may as well put it in I reckon..
  10. Great build by the looks of things. 480c is definitely going to be the limiting factor of the build, pending how far over 200rwkw you want to get..would recommend looking into some 555cc nismo injectors for some more headroom.
  11. Because someone will ask somewhere down the track.. S13 with Type X Skirts (And CA lip for reference on how low they hang):
  12. sell s13?

    Too hard to find another clean example that isn't overpriced. V35's are a sweet cruiser definitely get one too!
  13. For me, I enjoy driving the car, making it track only has it's positives and negatives, but wouldn't go track only again. Only time I'd sell is if I wanted a weekender/something to drive on the road again every now and then to which I'm half tempted to. Needless to say, I would sell up in a few years, only to buy another fun car. What I'm hearing mostly is "I don't get old of the car because I enjoy it" or "there isn't anything else to move onto". So I pose the question: If the FT86/BRZ came out turbo/supercharged/whatever, would you be selling your s-chassis for this? Answer for me would be, I would probably buy one once the warranty is out and people are selling them, but for the moment a S15 would be on the cards if I sold up. (supposably a turbo sti version is meant to come out at some point, guess we'll have to wait and see..)

    Looks really good locky, those rear guards look awesome and work really well! RE skirts, look into maybe getting a lip for the front? Couldn't find one under $200 for FRP copy, vertex skirts come to mind though that would prob be the next size up from aero. Or maybe some of the chunkier skirts (think biggie has his still??)
  15. Slipnslid

    Still got it. not done much to it really, just a few different sets of wheels and light mods. putting a T28 in this weekend and thats bout it. if you're still in the area you might see me around. Still around, live in Sutho these days, will keep an eye out. I drive a BA XR6 ute these days so if one starts chasing you, you'll know why lol. No probs man . Thanks dude
  16. Slipnslid

    Oh and Gaz, if you end up hearing from him that he wants to sort it out, I still have all the paperwork I was prepared to take to the police, but they ended up not being interested, and just bought another kit instead..
  17. Slipnslid

    Only asked for his bank details, which I still have somewhere, contact number and a name of C. Grant. Never got anything more. Woah, hey man. you still around? havent seen your car for ages. Sup dude. Always around, turned more into a lurker nowadays and just read members rides, stumbled upon this somehow. Still got my car, turned into a track car 18 months ago, has uras kit, widebody, wheels happened, pbm coils, new clutch as i destroyed the old one. Haven't taken it out in awhile, gotta get back into it. Still got yours? Hows that coming along Truth is the bank can autually reverse the payment as long as it has not cleared to the other account. I deal with this crap on a daily basis and banks always say they cant do it. It had cleared 3 weeks before I realised it wasn't coming. Stupid, I know. I remember the crzy_1via thread, but I doubt anyone's getting their money back from this thread..
  18. Slipnslid

    Yep I have, mentioned it to Loz and nothing he could do. Police advised to speak to bank. Bank couldn't do anything as I had sent money via internet transaction (they told me they could reverse any other type of payment). Never got my $350 back. Good luck

    Where was lip sourced? Streeter? Can't wait to see this come together, eagerly watching this thread almost every day haha
  20. Some times gets used

    I'm just devo about the GT-C more than anything. Glad your ok though. Rebuild or part out?
  21. Jam RBS14 Crashed

    The navan bar and wheel seem ok too...no biggie Follow this car religiously, hope you get it fixed soon buddy!
  22. two tone 6.0 litre silvia build - Going Widebody

    The last australian ones I got cracked while driving because they're thinner and needed work to fit. Definitely would go Origin next time if I had the choice. Too many people from streeter have got origin guards with no issues. It's just his way of covering himself, there's always a risk with shipping anything, chances of it happening and slim to nil however..
  23. Run It Hard! - Stageas gone, Skyline inbound!

    I don't know how up to date you are... R33 got sold, made way for track S13 with tow car, S13 being stripped and sold...
  24. s14a dori project .....Sil80 reshelling

    Love the progress Locky. Keep it up!
