  1. I'm alway curious as to why people think S series owners as being tight ass. I mean some of the shit I see on other people's car that are NOT Nissan makes me want to hit them over the head with a giant schlong. I see a lot of quality build on this site and from sites around the world also, but it bugs me sometimes when we get labelled cheap by other forums. Take Kemps, or SX Development, or PJ cars and you see the amount of quality parts they invest in their cars contradicts the misconseption the general automotive public opinion about us owners. So again, why the heck do you think we get label cheap?
  2. Hi fellas. I just have a few questions regarding the sikky kit for the s13. I heard that some people say you don't need the sikky extractors since it won't fit into our Right hand drive cars ovet here. Can anyone that have done the conversion telly me of it's true? Also does the Sikky kit only support LS1 or can it be used for the L98 as well? Thanks

  4. Hi Fellas. I went to Revolution Race Gear today to try on some seats and they only stock Cobra, which is a bit disappointing since I wanted to try on a few. Any one here know of any other places that stock a good variety of seats preferably in Melbourne area? BTW the seat I tried was the Cobra Suzuka which was really nice. Thanks
  5. Race Seats stores in Melbourne?

    thanks mate, I'll have a look but I prefer to buy the real macoy. thx
  6. Hi fellas I've been on this forum longer than I can remember. I was put off having a member's ride thread as I sometimes find it off putting as I'm quite a private person.

  7. Red goes faster 180SX UPDATE - 250kw, E85, Poncams

    I have an old BMW for a daily nothing fancy
  8. Red goes faster 180SX UPDATE - 250kw, E85, Poncams

    yeah I really wanted to keep it on the road but it's getting harder now with all the ever changing road rules. I think it will be more fun on the track though lol
  9. Red goes faster 180SX UPDATE - 250kw, E85, Poncams

    Well nothing much had happened since my last update beside enjoying the car for the last year as a daily car. But a couple of weeks ago my luck finally ran out when I was buying some things at Bunnings Nunawading when I was leaving I notice a white Holden driving up pretty fast, and my instinct was correct that it was indeed a highway patrol car. I got defected for too low, too loud, rims too wide and full RWC plus a nice chubby fine to start my day I had a week to think of what I want to do to the car and figured I'm getting too old to be defected by the cops and didn't want to donate my money to Vicroads anymore. So I decided to de-register the car which is quite sad really considering I had enjoyed it for 11 years on the streets but now I can actually focus on my driving skills instead with a track car. The plan now strip the interior, maybe sell the Works wheels, Get a weld-in cage, and some more cooling aids, power will remain the same hopefully it can last a bit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here are a list of thing that I'm thinking of changing to the car: - Strip the damn interior - Put a cage in there - Get rid the R33 GTR seats - Get a bucket but dunno which brand yet - Add some gauges to monitor the car - Get a Koyo radiator - Get a Oil cooler - Change the water pump - Buy a BIG ass wing - Maybe sell the Works Meisters as I don't know it this will be any good for track work (not serious just some fun) - And a new diff for now. Feel free to add any suggestions fellas as I pretty much know bugger all about making this stuff all work as a track car

    Nick What flange is that if you don't mind?
  15. Hi fellas. I have a budget of 10k for a daily driver but as I will be de-registering the 180 this year, I would like the car in question to be able to have good towing capabilities. I have a few that came to mind on the list down below, but what should I look for in a tow car? Also I don't think i would be towing it all that much, maybe a few times a year. Cars in questions: Holden Commodore wagon. Ford Falcon sedan. Honda Accord V6 Thanks in advance.
  16. Thanks all. Probably end up with a either Ford, but see how they feel once I test drive em. Cheers
  17. Thanks Bling. Didn't know that about the leaf spring, hence always good to ask Was thinking of the VY or even the VE as some are quite cheap now. Reason for the Honda is mainly the engine, they never seems to break.

  19. What's a good program to split up mp3 tracks

  20. S13 Silvia Race Car. 2015 season finished.

    I love the new look of your car mate. Been lurking on your build thread for a while now and the new/old silvia bumper really make the car more aggressive. Sonny.
  21. WTB: Bmc to suit s13

  22. Getting too old for the "Silvia" scene?

    Hang on................Asking if you are too old for the Silvia is like asking if you are too old for sex
  23. Getting too old for the "Silvia" scene?

    Love my 180. My daughter says my car makes vroom noise and is bouncy bouncy with the cutest smile on her face, can't go wrong with that mate.
  24. Hello. I have a relative that is interested in opening up a wheel and tyre place but without any experience in the field at all. He says it seems pretty easy, but I have a feeling there's more involved in it than just what's on the surface. I've been trying to tell him to do more research into it before investing such a big amount of money into something he had no experience yet. Can I ask if anyone here who had or know of anyone in this field of employment to give me some insight as to how this sort of business operate? Thanks.
  25. The wheel and tyre industry any good?

    If it was me owning a tyre shop, I know what I would do to keep business running. I'd make sure that the road ahead are full of nails hahaha. It's a joke just incase sensitive people here complain, but this is the sort of shit that happens in other less developed countries. Happened to me when I was riding me scooter on holiday and had a puncture at the same place a couple of times before I realised the shop down the road did it to get business hahaha. So more or less getting back to the subject, you have to diversify the business in order to be profitable these days, as you want the customers to always come back to you because of convenience. You would want to cover all basis, but the situation with this is that you would have a lot of overhead to pay since most people these days aren't willing to stretch themselves for the company so it leaves the employer the too many staff to pay if things goes bad.
