  1. hahahaha my thoughts exactly.. Ken block does it!!! But yeah unlucky about the brakes mate, as someone said above, in the grand scheme of things, it could have been WAAAY worse, and you weren't hurt, so it wasn't the worst crash in the world to have..
  2. Yeah str8e i'll pm you now yeah kelford do, it looks like thats what we're going to have to do if we can find any OEM ones anyways.. The specs on the Type A ones look pretty calm anyways so we'll see how that goes worst case scenario
  3. Taark's out boys.. i'll suss out supertech now
  4. Hey guys, A mate of mine is in the middle of a VE build, and he wants a set of OEM P12 20v camshafts, and me being the internet god I am, claimed I could find him some.. Well after lots of googling, i can't find any, at all.. Australia, New Zealand, USA, i have contacted OEM distributors at all these places and none of them had any, so my question is, where the shit are they? Is there somewhere that i'm not thinking of? Thanks boys..

  6. Turbo broken? please help

    only real way to tell is pull the turbo off and have a look mate.. you may be able to see in the front whilst its still on the car and see if anything is obviously wrong, but you'd be better off just pulling the turbo off and going from there..
  7. Also forget to mention that I traded my super stiff BC's to a drifter lad who was complaining that his Tein's were too soft.. So now i have Teins as well, apparently the BC's worked well for the lad on the weekend at his drift event, so it seems like it worked out best for the both of us..
  8. Front camber settings for track s15

    have you had the heatgun on your tyres after a run? Thats probably the best way to sort out whether you are running the right amount of camber on your wheels.. The infrared ones are 100 bucks or so..
  9. Front camber settings for track s15

    How much toe do you run on the front? And what's your castor just our of curiosity?
  10. miles man, 3 seconds or something.. may as well have parked mid track and had a drink I was that far behind..
  11. Alright, HUGE UPDATE you dogs.. so be ready. First things first.. I got my dream wheels.. I know, people hate them, but I love them.. A mate of mine had them on his Stagea when he bought it, and he hated them.. Obviously I was all over it and made him promise to sell them to me once he sorted out new wheels, and low and behold, he did.. Yep, Super Advans.. In man sizes.. 18 x 10 +19 all round.. So obviously there was a few problems there, the most obvious one being that they are 5 stud, and i was still dirty 4 stud.. So I had to get onto that.. So I had some s15 LCA's sitting around, I popped out the ball joint from the s13 arms and popped them into the S15 ones, and bolted them up.. Used my s13 knuckles with the s15 LCA's and had some conversion hubs sitting around, jammed them all together and sorted the hubs.. These are the shitty hubs.. Ebay spec i believe, but they were pretty good quality.. So yeah, i had the hubs off, figured I would deal with my shitty single pot brakes whilst it was all happening.. I had some z32 brakes sitting here that I obtained ages ago, so decided to use those and went and got some rebuild kits and rebuilt them myself.. Pretty gay, but ultimately way easier than i thought it would be.. It was at that time that one of my mates happened to be selling those GKtech bone things that means you can run a GTR rotor, and since Im a mad dog, I got them and ordered the DBA 4000's in GTR size.. a few days later, they showed up.. Note how tiny and girly my hands are.. SO yeah got all that shit sorted, brakes sorted, everything was going smooth, whacked all the front shit together and it worked amazingly, no real issues on the front and it all sort of just happened.. I was mighty glad when I finally saw it like this.. And with the wheel on.. Amazing.. I've waited about a million years to have man sized super advans on my car, and there they were.. So the rears went on pretty easy, i retained the standard brakes, just bought an s15 rotor to go on the new hubs, and changed out the pads and whatnot and away I went.. I was a little concerned with fitting 10 +19's on the back of my car but once it was all fitted up and done, it didnt sit too badly.. Mexiflush yes, but nothing a little guard work wouldnt fix.. Fronts sat awesome though.. The 25mm wide guards that I have on made the wheels fit perfectly.. I did need a 5mm slip on to clear the coilover, but otherwise it was all fine and dandy.. So i was super stoked to have them on and all good, car sat ok so i jacked the car up to bleed all the brakes, and this happened.. The f**king bleed nipples must have been made out of clay or something, because they all stripped so easily.. A quick trip to the brake place, and 4 new bleed nipples and a bleed was done and away I went.. A friend of mine owns a car wash so obviously the first place I went was there to get the car cleaned and to get the wheels looking all white and pretty.. All clean and pretty.. SO once it was all cleaned it was time to deal with the guards.. A quick roll and slight pull was all that was needed, so now it looks like this.. Not amazing looking, but does the job, i dont scrub anywhere, so thats a good thing.. So yeah, it finally all got done and with minor technical difficulties.. MY QFM's didnt come in time so I had to do my time attack on the weekend on shitty bendix ultimates, and I hated them.. SO my times on the weekend were f**king shit, and honestly, I was very sad.. The brakes just didnt feel right, and the car still somehow managed to light up the 265's on corner exit so I think I need to do my diff next.. Here's some more pics from the other day that were taken when the car was clean.. Other than that, drive safe my peeps!!!
  12. Time attack peeps - Let's talk Tyres

    wheres this 55% off sale bro? Also just for the record, i'v been running Fz201s in a medium at the track, they are ok, not as good as the a048's imo and they take ages to get upto temperature which isnt advisable for people doing short runs.. I'm defs going to try some z221's next..
  13. yeah, im not planning on doing anything with the rears.. I don't need to use the handbrake when on the track so i figured leave it stock for now.. If it creates issues with the bias i'll address it, but half of what i'v seen have people saying it doesnt affect it, and the other half say that it makes it easier to lock the rears when braking hard.. So we'll see how it goes.. Also, i finally received the s15 tail light loom so after lots of cutting and crimping and stuffing around I got the type x lights all fitted and wired up.. makes the car look about a thousand times better.. Man type x stuff is the pimp shit.. Alright thats it for now.. I'm trying to address this caliper situation, as the 33 ones i have apparently were leaking from the centre join, and i was under the impression that i could just rebuild them and solve that problem.. So we'll see what i can sort out from here.. Drive safe Marfs.. Oh yeah, also i got my personalised plates sorted out.. I'm clearly the maddest dog..
  14. Rebuilding Calipers

    ah ok, yeah im talking about the bolt that holds the two halves of the calipers together, not the actual mounting bolts.. I believe that one of the 33 calipers i have was weeping from the centre join thing, so that's something im going to have to deal with.. Thanks for the help boys..
