Happy new year everyone.

I haven't had anything to post for a while because nothing has gone wrong with it.
Until now.
The only hose I didn't replace when doing the airconditioning has developed a big leak.
So that will need replacing and a regas for the system.

I have a track day coming up on the 23rd Feb at Marulan.
The car worked really well at Wakefield park with the standard front roll bar back on.
But that is a much bigger track where the engine can really clear it's lungs.
how it goes on the tight confines of Marulan again should be interesting.

I am going to go from a 205 width tyre on the front to a 225.
Should improve front grip a bit as I had a bit of understeer at Wakie when I was doing the really quick laps.

I am still waiting for tie rods for the modded R31 struts but am having 2nd thoughts in the mean time.

So.....I thought, before I start swapping all the front suspension around again, I better make sure it fits.

First problem for the day:- couldn't undo this sonova#$@%^!

Image


So I thought I'd go top shelf and organise something to undo it with.

Voila! A genuine BBS Racing spanner!
I think the BBS logo is just the perfect touch

Image

Image

Image


Tried the new Angry Industries struts with an old brake disc and it just makes it.

Image

Image


I have about 3mm clearance.

Image


So all good then.
All I need now is new tie rods and tie rod ends.
Time to call Ev at Garage 7.


I like big butts and I can not lie.......

If you listen to the above between 8 and about 14 seconds you will hear the trademark GTS-R howl.

Anyway, I put on the old Work Ewings for the track day.
They still look pretty good imho.

Image

Image


I arrived at the track a bit early

Image


Chilling with the guys, Dans car is the white 31 coupe, the 33 is a GT-R.

Just ordered a pair of these from Ev at Garage 7.
They will make the front adjustable for caster.
Camber and track are already adjustable.
Yay! fully adjustable front end.

In other news, I have been talking to the guys at Unigroup Engineering here in Sydney.

The car is going in for a tune early next month.

But first I have to plug in the Nistune programmable ECU and see if it starts the car.

Thanks to Mrs Hooks for making this whole enterprise possible by moving her car out of the way.

Turns out it's not Impul, it's Adthree.

Some more front shots.

It's actually smoked perspex. I'm thinking of getting the rear visor tinted the same colour.

Glad you like it.
BBSs came out as standard equipment on the limited edition (800 made) HR31 GTS-R.
That is why I chose them for the project.
Just a bit bigger :roll:

Well, it turns out the Nistune ECU won't work on this engine.
So we are still at 155kw at the wheels.

Might have to take a different tack in that area.

Not a biggy really.
I can take the car to the track and beat the shit out of it all day with no problems as it is now.
So all good.

I put one of these on today.
Turbosmart boost tee.

Image

Pleasantly surprised.
Smoother ramp, peak boost about 400rpm sooner, less spike.
This is a pretty good thing.
Missing the all/nothing boost already. Much less savage.
Feels slower, actually faster.
