Recommended Posts

WOOPS i'v left this thread to die sorry folks, follow me on FB to follow the latest news: https://www.facebook.com/Calw36

 

Thanks for checking out the Option1Garage / Signature Performance Outlaws class Sil80 Racecar buildup / history thread.

 

2012 QRDC Sports and Sedans Outright Champion

 

Thanks so much to everyone that has helped me throughout the year - massive appreciation for the whole weekends given by my awesome pitcrew Pete, Nick and Dad. Support from Paul and the boys at Option 1 Garage / Full Lock Motorsport has been a massive help this year making problems that would have been a big deal previously seem like a piece of cake to resolve, and linking me up with Mca Suspension, gktech.com.au and Koya Wheels throughout the year has helped improve the car to be ultra fast and ultra reliable, just a dream to drive. Also Marty and Mich from STZ for the brilliant lightweight cage

 

Definitely pumped for more intense, clean, close racing with the Outlaws Sports & Sedans Racing Queensland in 2013

Thought id finally do a writeup on my moneypit of satisfaction

 

- Nov 2006

Looking like this when i first bought it. First proper car after driving the bongo van (liteace) around for 3 years after getting my license.

before.JPG

FEEL THE ADRENALIN

Son after added racing logic coilovers... car looked good like this :]

spit.JPG

Went to some dyno day and it put out 160kw apparently (unsure of how accurate the dyno was) at 12psi

 

- June 2007

QR sprint - First trackday experience, going 67.53 in pretty much standard form on street rubber.

 

- Nov 2007

QR sprint - Improved to 66.07 after adding fmic and exhaust, on street rubber.

 

 

Quickest lap set with exhaust gasket gone, it farted hot exhaust and melted my loom and i was lucky to be able to drive home. improv heat shield.

melty.JPG

 

F'ed around for all of 2008. had a crack at drifting, which i sucked at, and did some boring drag. best of 13.9sec quarter

added big brakes up front. smacked a gutter being stoopid which led me to get some new wheels.

 

- Jan/Feb 2009

Finally got back to the track in 09, couldnt match my pb in 2 attempts hmm. I guess it was summer, hot. + QR had rivers across the dippers on one of the days. rage.

SAS2-21-2-09.jpg

 

- June 2009

put some KU36 tyres on the car and then found out about lakeside. what a track! i was hooked.

090503 lakeside2.jpg

best of 65.43 on my first day there, june 09.

 

LS - improved to 63.89 on my next outing.

 

- July 2009

Decided to spend some money on trying to make some power,

Got a cheap t28 (thanks Matt B!), s15 injectors and a nistune. Tuned by EFI performance yatala to make 174kw.

dyno_2.JPG

 

improved to 63.00 but was hitting the speed limiter by the kink. EFI kindly removed the limiter when i took it back to them

 

- Sep/Oct 2009

LS - Improved to a 62.42 without the limiter

 

LS - Then 62.22 after removing a bit of weight, eg rear seats.

 

QR sprint - 61.57

 

- Feb 2010

Car was overheating quite badly after 2 or 3 laps getting up it. added oil cooler, air panel, bigger radiator, problem persisted...

Frustrating to have to back off and let it cool in the middle of a session.

Noticed Harry's sil80 owning it up, being the only sil to get under the magic minute at lakeside

 

so the opportunity came up with michael from here on NS to swap front ends. tore into it one saturday and did the swap.

d183079b.jpg post-176350-12683511041709940149.jpg

 

- March 2010

got a pair of springs from dennis at racing logic - legend

which softened the car from 9/7 to 7/5 kg. bolt in half cage installed.

LS - new PB of 62.14

 

- May 2010

KU36's finally shagged after 10 trackdays and 14,000 kays. Excellent value for money.

Got some federal RSR's to replace them.

LS - improved to 61.11 thanks to the softer rubber.

 

- June 2010

car has always had a major achilles heal of the sloppy viscous diff, causing the inside wheel to spin up and cost a lot of time.

Diffs were very expensive, so i was lucky to find a bargain on boostcruising for a 1.5way r180 with a 4.3 ratio (vs 4.11 of the original)

 

Also installed a surge tank which solved the long time drama of having to run with at least half a tank of fuel to prevent starvation.

FUEL.JPG

have since added alfoil wrapping to the lines to try and reduce the fuel smell stinking me out.

 

QR sprint - 59.67

 

- July 2010

Got a bit excited after seeing pics of THIS car.

A mate had a rear wing lying around under his house, so i grabbed it off him. Then went to bunnings and bought some plywood and other gear. fabbed up the front splitter + air dam and drilled holes in the rear hatch for the wing.

split1.JPGsplit2.JPG

 

LS - 59.91 finally cracked the minute. feels a bit like cheating with the aero bits. huge difference in high speed grip.

post-181987-12800534941784360205.jpg

 

- Aug 2010

Front tyres getting chewed due to inadequete camber. installed R33 front LCA's which have helped.

Also got the chance to test some real tyres thanks to Alan at Federal / Z car workshop. FZ201 medium compound and mega wide.

LS - 58.64 first session

genthumbs.jpeg

 

- Sept 2010

LS - 58.39 jap nationals one lap shootout

dandfxcjss76copy.jpg

 

- Oct 2010

found front shocks to be rooted, replacements from dennis at racing logic fitted. cheers !

 

Lakeside - 17/10 - 58.61 zed fest. just consistent 58's

 

built a box for the fuel system to try and make it a bit safer in an accident.

fuelbox.JPG

 

QR - 30/10 - 57.68 new PB

 

Nov 2010 - Morgan Park - 1:27.39 - class winner improved production over 3L

INSPIRATIONS:

 

Harry being the first ever silvia in the 59's at lakeside back in '09 - we all thought he was nuts after seeing this vid - the whole 'treat lakeside with respect', '9-tenths maximum' mantra that everyone spouted went out the window, heres Harry hanging it out at bridge + the last corner... very intimidating bits of track.. without raising a sweat. Another lesson learned, the importance of learning car control without aero influence.

cheers, 4.3 diff goes alright, brings on the shift light at about 220 but i only get up to 205~ at lakeside.

so no worries until i go to eastern creek or philip island?

4.3 diff in my 180 with 183RWKW and 245/40/17's showed an indicated 230kmh @ EC (Nismo dash), was a 38 degree day though! The gearing was really well suited to the track too.

Also dont know what rpms it reached on the straight, turn 1 tends to focus your concentration somewhat. Probably around 6-6200rpm in 5th.

4.3 also suits Wakefield layout perfectly..

The extra acceleration out every corner would more than make up for a tenth or 2 hitting the limiter on the straight anyway.

 

An oversized waterpump pulley cured my overheating drama's.

 

Good work mate!

nice write up Callum. Having seen all these improvements over the past year in person at Lakeside, all I can say is this thing is simply low flying now! 58.3 from a road registered car on semis, driven to and from the track is just insane.

 

btw, I started buying bits for my 180 today. I'm playing catch-up!

yewww thanks fellas.

good to know about the diff tim ! thanks, looks like i'll keep the 4.3. for the win.

 

YESS harry. thanks mofo! awesome that youre keeping it ! no other chassis compares to the cheapness and ease of handling tuneability.

 

and the sump.. the first one i got had a casting defect and it leaked. they sent another one up and its great, no complaints.

 

ahh actually.. i had to trim the upper baffle near the oil pickup sucker as it interfered with the hinge flap thingos. chop chop with tinsnips, too easy.

thanks srs! pics added,

 

i guess im happy with the car as-is. pretty much just drive it till something breaks?

might try and wring a bit more power out of the little turbo if i can do so safely.

Great work!!

Fantastic improvement as well Callum. 57.6 at QR is very very fast for an S13 chassis!

 

I'm sure you won't want to hear, but i've almost finished buying bits for the rebuild, planning on being back on track in Feb. Hope to see you out there!!

thanks heaps simon!

it'll be great to see your car back in action after such a long time. your speed back in 09 was an inspiration for sure. bring it to lakeside and have a crack!

 

you were right all along about QR's dodgy timing too hehe

and lakeside is only hand-timed also. Sucks when we are paying top dollar.

Well my rebuild was on planned to start next week, but i've copped a hammering with the floods. House is fine but driveway has suffered a bid land slip and down the hill and needs a lot of work- its around 700meters long. So the rebuild is on hold. Cant see it happening first 6 months of this year at least. :(

Was really looking forward to coming to LS

 

Hey what is the lap timer/track map thingy you're using- looks pretty goochy??

First race day yesterday, was incredibly hot. car was blowing the turbo gasket progressively worse throughout the day but still had good pace.

 

 

The field was small due to the way they organised the classes, so we got lumped in with formula fords for the first couple of races! wtf.

There were plenty of similar cars that got spread out amongst the other classes. strange.

 

pretty intense to actually have to push 100% for the full 5 laps, not just against yourself/the clock.

Perfect laps were not as easy to achieve compared with a sprint session and being alone with clear track.

thanks rob :]

 

update; just changed the gasket, it'd spun one of the nuts off despite locktabs. must remember to check these regularly.

this is what was left hah. loom started to get a bit melty also woops.

heyhey ash, thanks - your ipra vids are awesome too. great pics !

 

havnt tried fz101's, guess theyre a similar compound to the 201 mediums i use though.

 

trying to choose a bigger turbo, really enjoy quick response from my small t28 right now. aiming for 200 to 220 kw. have 740cc injectors, dont really want to open the engine

 

should i go disco potato 2860RS or 2871 .64 housing ?

I just hit 200kw using a disco on my s14 sr makes 10psi at 2800rpm. I'm going for 220kw with some tomei poncams.

I would go with the 2871, thats what I use. I have 24psi boost at 4300rpm.

 

So what are the 201's, R comp or SLick?
