Fortunately with the L28 drive train, there's only few things to break down before you've basically restored the whole thing :) Hey at least you'll have the car in tip top shape by the time you're in the states.

Every time I look at this I want to put the MR30 nose in my dads shed on my DR30. And some flares.... and some silly wheels, and maybe, just maybe, chuck the FJ for a L series


... I think I need a HR30

ok, everyone cross their fingers and pray to their prospective Gods haha. Drove the car today through typical Japan traffic, with the uprated 13/16 slave cylinder. Hoping it holds out better than the old 3/4 did. Was happy to see there's a direct shot from master to slave on the clutch line, easy day on the bleeding :tu: Just need to adjust the pedal some and should be golden 8)

Little tidbit I've learned from this is; 300zx and Silvia slaves both fit perfectly on the s130 trans.

thanks guys :D picked up a new exhaust today, hopefully can swap it right on (it's for a r31 supposedly, we'll see) and i'm going to lower the car a good 2-3inches... the issue is, the rear isn't cut all the way up under the flare. so i may have to cut more to make it happen. it's weird because whoever installed them, did cut the stock fender and did body work very cleanly, but it's not that high up :roll:

custom made up front and JIC in the rear. the rear could lower the frame two inches into the ground haha. front is on the last thread, completely wound down :cry: i might get some shorter springs for the front. i'm OK with how it sits now though. before was just ridiculous lol. went from 4 finger gap to 1.5 :o

looking a lot better lowered :oops: guess i'm going to buy some s13 coilovers to accommodate my r32 calipers i have sitting here. can't find any alternative and no solid answer on how it really handles. i'll find out the old fashioned way (aka the hard way lol)

I did the s13 coilover swap. I noticed some bump steer and a little slop in the steering. I didn't get to drive it like that for very long so i don't have much more info then that. I am keeping them in for right now, since I am having the whole car refreshed and new bushings installed everywhere, with a bit of tweaking here and there. Then I will be able to drive the car hard enough to decide if I like the S13 conversion up front.

looks awesome!

The steering slop you might find it now shows up how horrible the steering box's are in the R30's, Give the adjustment on it a little tweek, (only 1/8 of a turn at a time) Till it feels right.

i'll def keep an eye on how you like it davboy. do you have any roll center adjusters or anything else? i actually had some HKS s13 front coilovers, but sold them haha. it's ok, they were used anyway, i'd rather get a whole new set front and rear.

i actually was looking at that screw the other day. I'll give it a go today and see if it helps. it should make some kind of improvement i'm hoping :oops: it's not total shit, but it's definitly a little "old school" feeling.

Possible way to remove bump steer with the s13 setup (depends on your height) Is install these

http://www.redlineperformance.co.nz/ind ... 18617.html

you might be able to mount the tie rod at different heights

yea, i'm thinking of getting s13/14/15 tie rods and coil overs and see how it is. i'm looking into possible steering rack swaps as well, in an attempt to lose the floaty steering. it's not bad, but there's a fair bit of play when going straight

can anyone tell me what that round "screw" is on my OER carb? not sure if other carbs have them or not, i'm a total noOb to these fuckers :oops: i was fixing some more wiring and noticed one of the carbs was missing this plug. it is round with no way to tighten it in besides by hand. it is threaded though, so i'm guessing this is something that's meant to be accessible? also not sure if a spring or anything else popped out along with it. the other two are on tight as hell so i can't pull and check them really. i plugged it up and it's running much better, hopefully thats all it needs :/
