  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

  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. So As some are aware I have a bit of a pig s13 project going on lately and I am pretty keen on painting the beast my self. Thinking to shoot it something simple first like a high gloss black. Obviously I am starting from scratch and the 1st hurdle I have is What Type/Specification compressor do I need. Keeping in mind the pocked ($$$) If any one can help or post a link to something suitable that would be great. I have painted stuff before but with a small tank, turned out well but I want to start fresh with a new view on paint work Cheers all
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Don't get me wrong painting a car is hard work! But I think if you have enough patience it can be done really well I've attached a photo of the final works
  16. So I've just been finishing up my project car ready for a track day next weekend. After taking it for a short run down the road I got back to notice a small knock noise. I though nothing of it due to it dissapearing pretty quickly. Since then I have factored in my boost to 11psi and the noise has gotten a lot worse Its a very distinct knocking sound very similar to the noise in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrlJMbuTKJg It is now happening on idle and as the revs pick up its getting louder. the odd thing is its sometimes not there on idle but regardless when I pick up revs it comes back Anyway I'm thinking it might be a dirty lifter as the motor has only just gone back in and might have picked something up on the way I decided to try some lifter cleaner but no luck so from there I tried compression test All cylinders except for number 2 were 150psi but number 2 was down at 120psi Still thinking its a lifter could cause low compression but a spun bearing would not change compression So I've taken off cam covers and checked all lobes, no scoring on any of them Then tried sticking a feeler guage in between the lobes and lifter. It wouldn't fit which suggests lifters are ok?? I have just finished dropping the oil and from what I can tell there are no shavings in it. WTF! Starting to get a little stumped here Any help asap would be appreciated pleaseeeeeeee
  17. So have figured out that the low compression issue is not related to the knock after all of that. Its the big end bearings Looks like polish and replacement time for this car
  18. Hey all, I have just gone out and purchased some 2k paint, primer, hardener and thinners. When I grabbed all of this stuff I queried the bloke on the application of this paint. He Told me the following 4:1 Primer to hardener 10% Thinners 2:1 Paint to Hardener 10% thinners That is all good and well but the thing he did tell me is that I do not require a clear coat? I got very confused about this so I asked him again and was assured I do not need it so I have to ask, do I? To me it seems logical but really to me 2k is a whole new deal Any advise would be appreciated Cheers
  19. Yeah I have a wool pad, Tried a small section and I think I have it all worked out Now to find the effort to do the whole car
  20. car has done less than 15kms on this oil, as its only just been put into the s13 I didn't give it a thrash when playing with the boost, rpm never got that high I'm in the cam ssection now so I might take out the lifters and give em a clean and try it. Worst comes to worst I'll drop the sump and have a look Cheers
  21. Also help on bleeding lifters?? BUMP!
  22. hahaha love the attitude Mandi I'll see how I go once I've run project 20 in, but is looking like a go
  23. Haha yeah hate that stuff 2! I've got some 2000 wet and dry I've been playing around with in spots not too noticeable Bought a cheap buff from supercheap and some cutting compound and liquid car polish. The polish gear was so freaking expensive! like $28 and the bottle isn't that big Any who I've had a play around last night and I think I have the technique all figured out. After 2000 I've thrown some light liquid cutting compound onto the buff to bring the colour back out Once its looking pretty minty I've rubbed in some polish by hand and bam its looking pretty decent! Thanks again everyone, Feedback is always welcome and it has certainly helped me out in my travels
