For those that may be new to JNCs, we want to encourage any and all to post questions related to the history, buying or repair of JNCs. We all have to start somewhere, so why not here with a wealth of knowledge (and proven mistakes!) to learn from? Feel free to ask questions in our first beginner’s corner post, along any other tips you’re looking for in general. On the flip side, we also encourage our readers to comment on those questions and requests.
What would you like to know about getting started with JNCs?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What part did you install that is completely unnecessary?“
We’ve all been overzealous with our builds, perhaps getting an itch to do a bit of dress up on our pride and joy. Last week, we asked what sins of the wallet and how much time was lost due to an unnecessary parts install. Pippin Osborne started off with an R34 turbo timer with good intentions of oil temperature management but was distracted by another: the lure of a trackable 300ZX. Bryan Pichardo rightly called this “a great problem to have.” KiKilchiban mentioned a Hello Kitty cup holder install. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there, friend.
In an upset, Brian90 just eked out a win over jivecom with his installation of an ETC card device. Jive’s story of useless mudflaps had us laughing with the hologram comment, but it was Brian with the all-too-common experience of hearing the kind, yet annoying voice of the ETC system telling the driver there is no card in the ETC machine that takes the cake. In two of my previous cars, I have disconnected the speaker wire for the system. To have one wired up while not even using ETC in your country is a new level of unnecessary.
Omedetou! Your comment has earned you a set of decals from the JNC Shop.
