  1. You get what you pay for I suppose. Where do you get zestino from at those prices?
  2. Still rocking ad08r from 2016 on my street wheels, still got decent tread and grip. I'll probably replace with the same, next time there's a good deal. Track wheels still fitted with ar1, haven't done much track work for ages, would still consider buying a new set depending on the price. Not sure if they're still cheap. I recently bought an rs Megane and it came with zestino o7a (harder street tyres). I did a day recently at Sandown and found them to be quite decent. I managed a flat 1:29, there was 2 other Meganes with more power and suspension mods and on ar1's doing 1:26 and 1:27. Racechrono reckons theoretically a low 1:28 was achievable. So the zestino couldn't have been too bad. They are a little noisy on the street though. Came with the car, not complaining. They held up pretty good too after the track day, unlike the brakes which only lasted 2 sessions before the spanners had to come out. On the same day, Richo had his R33 out on 4-5 year old RS4 and did a lazy 1:20 and looked like he was just warming up. He did say he is a bit faster on ad08r. Out of the street tyres for motorsport it's still ad08r followed by RS4 ahead of the others and full track it's still a050/z221 at the top imo.
  3. Yeah, good call. I was going to say whatever you do make sure you don't use the htg GCU. Obviously you've heard and probably seen the same stuff I have. Hope it all goes well, that will be an awesome setup and make your car next level.
  4. That's a bit of shit luck there. I like where you're going with the 8HP. What are you going to use to control it?
  5. Vgate wifi obd adapter like the below link "should" work with hobdrive. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vgate-iCar-Pro-WiFi-ELM327-OBD2-Diagnostic-Scanner-Tool-Code-Reader-AU-Stock-/373402368737?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=705-154756-20017-0
  6. Great result and Nissan/Nengun was pretty speedy with the refund. My saga dragged on for 9+ months before a replacement landed on my doorstep. Surprised they're letting you keep it.
  7. Lol, not a max fan then. What a farking debacle. There's rules and then there's rules.. Nek minnit, Massey demoted to officiating Aus world time attack.
  8. Don't assume the worse yet. Could be as simple as a dodgy thrust bearing. The oil is your fortune teller and should give you a direction to follow.
  9. I had a similar issue with a new box after 1 track day. When I drained the oil, it told the story. Let's just say it glittered like gold. Im not sure exactly what went wrong as I didn't have it pulled apart as the nice chaps at Nissan where nice enough to replace it with another new one. Thank you Mr Nissan, I bow down to you. I'm assuming it was a broken/stripped synchro. It was still selecting and had drive in all gears but was making a whine noise. At first I thought it was a bad turbo bearing but then realised the noise went away when stepping on the clutch pedal. From memory I think the whine got quieter in 4th gear. Sounds very similar to what you're describing, hopefully not.
  10. Came to see if this was a BMW thread yet. Very happy to see RBLYFE continues and ONLY at 2.2 bar. I very much approve. Please continue.
