  1. Easy as conversion, need r33 handbrake cables, use r33 hub with drum handbrake etc, all just bolts in, I had braided lines to suit stock brakes, these fitted straight in, can't comment on bmc as I swapped the r33 one in at the same time
  2. I have r33 rear brakes with standard front calipers on my s14, using r33 non abs bmc, pedal feel is spot on, I think it's mainly the bias that is different
  3. Hey , so been on here for a while, had my S14 for nearly two years, this is what it looked like when i bought it came with R32 GTR rims, trust T517z turbo, apexi front mount, Tanabe coilovers, and a veilside turbo back exhaust, orc clutch got it home, chucked on some 18's, clarion dvd head unit, drove for a little while before it broke This is the only decent shot of have with these 18's on, with a mates 32 GTR replaced leaking water pump, failed alternator then started cleaing it up took it to a commodore drag day(can't be picky in Tas lol) was put in turbo 6 class, and won ha ha 13.8@165km/h then it started to play up, chased a running problem for a while, got over it so didn't touch it for a while after a few months sorted the problem, was just happy driving it, then the turbo died funds were a bit tight so fitted up a hypergear tr28kai, great support from these guys , and some GKTech braided lines car was driving great then, didn't go quite as well as the trust turbo, but was running reliably then the gearbox started to get noisy, kept on driving it for a while, but then it got a bit too noisy lol, pulled the box out to find my orc clutch worn-out so a new clutch was needed, also a flywheel as the orc one was distorted popped in an Extreme chromoly flywheel and motorsports clutch kit, had gearbox rebuilt with a few new bits car kept running for 6 months or so trouble free, until....................spun big end pulled the motor out and took sump off to see how things looked, cranks was in suprisingly good nick, considering the bearings!! cleaned it up and put a set of ACL race bearings in everything seemed to be going ok after this, so could finally do a few other things got rid of the 18's and just ran with the GTR wheels fitted up a Topstage front lip, and some Tuneagent camber and toe arms(Thanks to SP Garage), subframe lock kit, alloy radiator and generally tidying things up the previous owner had an alarm sort of installed, well his install was wire it in, then cable tie all up under the steering column, considering it was a remote start alarm, there were quite a few wires!! pulled the whole thing out along with the turbo timer and crappy old gauges that were in there then moved battery to the boot, and fitted a Velo Race seat, and some different mirrors then a GKTech exhaust that brings it up to current, where i have just fitted some Navan side skirts and pods (thanks to J-Imports) also has some 18x8.5 and 18x9.5's on it so here are a few shots of how it sits today

  6. I have for sale my Australian delivered S14 200SX I have owned this car for 6 years, during which time nearly every part on the car has been improved or replaced, I have lost the passion for what this car was built for, so I have decided to sell to allow someone else to make use of this car, nothing needs doing to the car, all the hard work is done, its a great car, but unfortuneatly no longer suits my lifestyle, I can't take my 4 year old daughter in it, nor will i drive it on unsealed roads. The last two events i have competed in the car has won best presented vehicle, I have taken pride with everything I have done to this car. With over 50k spent over the 6 years i have owned it, I feel asking 18k for it is a bargain.

  7. i ran a hillclimb at the weekend, with some fresh rsr's on, was a rained soaked event, must say i am impressed with the rsr's! good grip from cold, no understeer at all, even with a locked diff, unfortunately i haven't ran any of the other tyres before, also came 3rd in class, so wasn't taking it too easy

  9. Froggz S15 Jap Import.

    i thought that at first too, think he might mean the coolant line is leaking and there is the evidence, hopefully lol

  19. Gran Turismo 6 announced

    i did that cheat last week, worked then, the latest update (couple days ago) must have stopped it, i have bought most of the cars i want, all modded etc and have 13.5 mill left, once you get in to the international a class racing, a win gets you 70k anyway, so won't take long to get cash
  20. Haltech vs Power FC vs Nistune

    it does have an auto tune function, the best thing with the wideband controller is you can command a certain afr for closed loop running ( light throttle etc) so it will trim the fuel to achieve ideal afr when cruising, great for economy

  22. Gran Turismo 6 announced

    it is def better than gt5, handling is way improved, gt5 used to shit me, as in yanking on steering wheel at 50km/h would have understeer, with race tyres!! gt6 is heaps better in this way, car sounds are still a bit shit, better than 5 though. New tracks are good, been smashing bathurst, 1200 cars or what ever they have, apart from 2013 models they all seem the same as gt5
