  1. Hi all, Recently boight a project car that came with an rb20det and gearbox. Just now 2nd gear has shit its self I could only find the code RP71C #2 stamped on the side of it From what I can tell its an r32 GTST gearbox? Not too confident in my research, anyone care to share their knowledge? Thinking of trying to rebuild my self or to buy another Cheers
  2. After the final practice for the year I've got a bit of a damage bill to repair the broken bits on the car Broken clutch pedal, bent tie rod, broken sway bar links, broken lights and front bar and an electrical fire/fault with my thermo fans. I've got all of the bits on order now nice new shiny whiteline swaybar links and tie rods Thinking I will need an alignment but where would be the best place for me to go? Considering I need it aligned for drift? Thanks

    Pitty there were no 4 studs Good luck with the sale though mate

    4 stud man to suit a standard s13 hubs, no spacers. Keen to look at anything mega cheaps Cheers
  5. ****TASMANIAN TRADERS********

    Looks like the WTB section is down I'm in pretty desperate need of some cheap skid rims for an s13 (PCD 114.3) No spacers on my car so the offset has to be reasonable Interested in looking at almost anything Cheers
  6. Hahaha Love the concept I haven't had time to call repco yet. if they can get me the belt under $100 I'll go with that for now. Too lazy to put in a harness atm. but if its going to be expensive I'll try the big bolts and washers idea 5 point is roughly same price as 4 so I'd be silly not to if I did
  7. Yeah I've managed to get a part number or two from the website so I'll give repco a call tomorrow and see what the go is Tnx for the advice
  8. Yeah mine are the JDM ones damn it! haha I've looked into getting a harness but the downside is i cant just use the existing rear seat mounts due to the angle they are on. so I'd need to put in fresh holes and make anchor plates for it to bolt into. Sounds like too much effort to me If I cant find any ADR approved belts this week I'll look into the harness Idea
  9. Thanks, definitely recommend everyone to get out there and give it a go Cheers for the PM Hopefully can get it sorted
  10. How'd you enjoy Saturday? I'm bringing shorts for this one so I can change after driving if it's going to be hot like it was for Round 5! Yeah Saturday was a blast thanks Learnt street drifing is way different to actually doing it on the track, I'm officially n00b at this stage It was a scorcher of a day aye! Something like a peak of 29 degrees, Shorts sound like a much better option I was going to ask you actually, I got pulled up for having stock nissan seat belts at scrutineering (of course I did) Bit of a mistake by me Was told I need to change them to a cams approved belt which I'm cool with, Just wondering what belts you have in that tidy looking 180 of yours Oh glad you enjoyed Yep, street drifting is not only dodgy, just totally not justified with the drift days we have here in a safe and legal environment, and yes actual drifting is a bit different to the street heros Hrm very interesting, I'm running standard seatbelts as I'm sure alot of people are, have actually never heard of standard seatbelts being an issue ever. Let me have a bit of a look in my cams book and see what the issue could be with that... Your seatbelts were bolted in securely ie standard position not loose? K editing my post confirming standard belts are allowed: Checking my 2009 CAMS manual - "Seat belts fitted to production cars as standard equipment and marked as complying with ADR 4/00 or 4/01 shall be deemed as complying with AS2596" Which scrutineer told you your standard belts aren't allowed? Exactly! I'm no street hero, I've just had my occasional fun in empty carparks from time to time, not endangering anyone aside from my stupid self of course More than happy to pay the costs and rip it up on the track. Yeah I'm not to sure, he said that the belts are Japanese industry standard and are fine for road use but as far as cams are concerned they are no good. Yeah everything is locked down and secure, when it comes to safety I don't cut corners any thoughts would be awesome thanks

  12. Nah its all good mate Yeah it hasn't been buffed yet, that 1st photo that I put up doesn't do much for the car, the 2nd photo with me in the car is more of a real representation of how it looks, and considering its not buffed yet its pretty vibrant in real life. Haven't gotten around to the buffing yet due to a track practice day last weekend, in which I had a found out my motor was shagged. Crank was cracked. Ended up doing a full engine replacement the night before and finished up around 1am that morning. With any luck I'll get a change to buff it in the next week or so I know not the best situation to drive it then buff it but there's not much I could do at the time Thanks all for the I'm definitely glad I saw this paint job through
  13. Thanks everyone pretty happy with the result my self, it needs a final 2000 and a polish but its come out well for a home job Haters always be hating, always good to prove someone wrong Prep work surprisingly was about the only thing I knew how to do, its all about the prep work. Definitely appreciate people who do this as a profession but if you have the time/patience damn its a good learing experience Only thing I didn't mention is, definitely have 2 filters on your air line, one big one at the tank and another at the gun I didn't run into any problems but I can see how people could in warmer conditions.
