I'm looking around, under the couch, on top of the fridge, in the second drawer down.
But I can't find an update anywhere.

Update? Oh well, if you insist :lol:

Actually it's been a reasonably eventful past few weeks for the Hako. At the end of May was the Lancer Evolution Nationals, which was a really cool event that was part car show, part trackday and held at Eastern Creek Raceway The event was sponsored by Yokohama Advan, and here's the official vid.

http://youtu.be/_rDXw2ZrSn0

These are pics taken by my friends btw, I can't take pics like this :)
Image

Image

Image

The pit area was filled with cool cars, that made for a pretty spiffy car show
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So you had your choice of wandering the pits, taking it all in, or going to one of the many vantage points to check out the action on the track and skidpan
Image

Image

Image

The Hako managed to win the Mothers prize for Best Overall Car, Runner-up which I was pretty stoked about.

Then last weekend there was a dyno day with the Nissan Sports Car Club, and the Hako pulled 148rwkw (or 198rwhp).
Image

The last time Hako was on the dyno, the result was 189rwhp, and that was before the new exhaust system and the MSD6A. The last two mods seem to be worth about 10rwhp, which is about how it feels. Aussie dynos work off 30% transmission loss, so that's pretty much a nice, even 280hp at the crank. That, as Rolls Royce used to say, is "adequate" :)

But there'll be more updates soon! This arrived yesterday, it's a Subaru Sti 2-way LSD with a 4.4:1 final drive, and we'll be showing you how to put one of these in there *points at Hako* Skids (and hilarity) will no doubt ensue
Image

And the latest batch of parts from http://www.rubber-soul.net should be arriving any day now, so check back soon for more updates :)

I am also unacquainted with this concept. What is this "driving" you speak of? :lol:

Looks fantastic, as always. Eagerly awaiting pics/vids of the aforementioned skids 8)

Congratulations on the award! Car show trophies are always nice, it's cool when your car is recognized as being sorted, whilst surrounded by other, similar vehicles. :lol:

Kev,
Stop playing with your German Pork and get back to fondling the Japanese Box.

Kind regards,

ToolZ.

Hmm...I did do a recent post, but it looks like it was sucked into the same vortex that engulfed a day of forum posts when we upgraded servers. Anyway, here goes take 2:

Just so that nobody gets the idea that I may have forgotten about this car :) I thought I'd fit some of the latest swag from http://www.rubber-soul.net
Image

First items are new greasecaps from the front hubs, since the ones on the car are a little manky looking and dented. I guess my attempt at google-translate failed, and I didn't realise that they were sold by the pair :)
Image

Image

Shiny new caps look great on cars I've seen with gunmetal watanabes, but I think it doesn't really work with the gold wheel centres.
Image

So I'm painting a pair of them in black...might have to give them a few days to cure before I tap them into place with the hammer.
Image

Second item are these rubber seals
Image

They replace these ones that seal the front and rear windows together.
Image

Mine aren't in such bad shape, there's only a bit of a gap along the bottom of the passenger side window, it doesn't seem to let in water, but at speed it does create this annoying whistle. I've tried glueing it in place, but it just keeps popping back out.
Image

New ones are fairly easy to fit, you just lube them with a little liquid soap, and then slide them up into place from the bottom.
Image

The new seals are nice and plump...
Image

...with no more gaps.
Image

Also took the opportunity to get some reproduction stickers
Image

Image

The other items I'm going to leave for another day, but these are adjuster/clamps for the front steering arms.
Image

The ones on the car have been painted over a few times, so it will be nice to have shiny ones in place with new fasteners.
Image

The other thing that has never worked on the car, is the heater, which is bypassed. Judging by the green fuzzy corrosion, I figured either the heater matrix or the mixer tap thingo gave up the ghost while the car was in Japan.
Image

So we have new hoses and the mixer tap thingy.
Image

I'm always surprised at how much stuff is available for the Hako in Japan...with the exception of the stickers, all the parts above came out of Nissan parts boxes.

The last item are some really nice parts that just came in from Beta Motosport in the States. They're billet axles which allow me to fit a Subaru LSD to the Hako.
Image

An R180 Subaru STi LSD just bolts up under the back end of the Hako, with no modifications. The problem is, the Nissan driveshafts aren't compatible with the Scooby diff insides. So the Beta Motorsport axles are Subaru on the inside, and Nissan on the outside. All billet and I've waited since last November for these to be made :) The diff by the way, is a STi 4.4:1 2-way plate LSD.
Image

I'll get the diff rebuilt with fresh bearings and seals, and then we can have a go at installing it.

Actually, they were caught in the time/space continuum that ate all the forum posts, so they are locked in a permanent timeloop where the paint remains wet forever.

If you wipe the paint off 'em and paint your rims graphite that might seal the vortex....
