  1. I'm not always as bright as the colour of my car. 🤣 But yes, I thought I was pretty anonymous, perhaps not...
  2. Welcome to SAU. That's a good looking car. A 26 into one of these is a good start... That said, there is a fan club of the RB20. Supposedly a pretty tough engine. I like seeing what Americans do with their cars, I feel like even though we like JDM, Americans do things I've never seen before. It's cool and interesting (to me anyways). If you have questions we'd love to answer them (not me though, i'm a professional at "have you turned it off and on again guy) and maybe give some thought to a build thread. I feel like you might need it!
  3. It is indeed. I'm starting to realise i'm not as difficult to find online as I thought... 😂
  4. This makes waaaaaay more sense... i'll just excuse myself from this thread.
  5. I use Forza for this question. If you have an xbox it's worth it just so you can check the styles of wheels you want... But my two cents for a silver car is: White 19" TEs White LMGT1s Gold BBS "Split Spokes" Also don't underestimate how good R34 GTR rims looks on 33s.
  6. Possible the car had a TV/DVD screen in it at some point. It may be using switched 12V from the column, and the handbrake sensor to know when it should turn the screen on/off. I can't think of a reason anyone would use the handbrake switch for any other reason. Not only that, no one in the world ever bother with these, and depending on the model, just hooked the look to ground or 12V permanently. Then it was up to the driver to not watch TV while driving.
  7. My wife and I took our cars out to a night meet at Docklands Costco (Cars and Coffee). It was absolutely packed. I had no idea how many cars would show up, turned out hundreds... It was a pretty good mix of cars, if they could just lose the people who show up in stock Commodores and Falcons with straight through exhausts it would be perfect. The GTRs got a lot of love while we were there, and the silver one picked up a very slight scratch in the rear bar (sigh). I'm sure it's only the clear top coat, but it's still annoying as hell. Anywho, pictures (not all mine btw):
  8. Awesome car mate, well done on the trade. Normally they don't turn out so well!
  9. Welcome back to the fold. You must have been OG! Cool that you've come back. I put my cars into a build thread: https://www.sau.com.au/forums/forum/190-projects-overhauls-and-build-ups/ I think I misuse them, but if you're doing actual work on the cars, you'll be right! I love wagons (a lot for someone without a stagea anyways) so I'll be following along enthusiastically.
  10. Good attitude man. Keep them coming no matter how slow! People who don't subscribe to this find their car in the fence after half a lap (and I'm told that's super expensive).
  11. Unacceptable!!! lol as a minimum. I've DM'd you Alex. Good to see you still at this. I really, really enjoy watching your videos. I already was watching people lap the ring, but it's super cool to see a 33 doing laps.
  12. Hi Douglas. Thanks for posting. Most people who suffer from Depression have anxiety in some way, shape or form, for me it was Flying, and being late to appointments (I really feel that time pressure in my life). I would consider a couple of steps that might help you out: Get out and about during the day (a walk at lunchtime or while on a call can help immensely). If possible walk to ride or walk to walk, even if it means just jumping off the train one station early (I understand that isn't always applicable though). Consider meditation/mindfulness activities that you can start. Yoga, meditation or anything that involves self reflection could help. Try to learn about anxiety and in particular attempt to identify how you can be triggered (even a basic understanding helps). Cut down on coffee. (This one was hard for me, i went from 3 double shots a day to one, at first I was sluggish and felt rough, but I got through it). Coffee in the morning isn't terrible but late coffee can affect your sleep pattern/quality. Also for me, overthinking things and playing out hypothetical situations was really bad. If you also do this, try to identify the chances of this happening (normally for me it was very low) and only apply the same amount of energy to that scenario as it's likelihood to becoming a reality. (Google Occam's Razor for more details on this one). There are some free apps and websites that might help you out: https://www.mindful.org/free-mindfulness-apps-worthy-of-your-attention/ http://understandinganxiety.wayahead.org.au/getting-help/helpful-websites/ It may still be worth consulting a psychologist as they have a neutral view of you and your thought pattern. For me this is a big bonus as my psychologist can point out when I am being too harsh on my self and help me to correct some of my thought patterns. If you can do just one of the things above (actions or use an app or see a psychologist) you might find you start to improve your mental well being. I've PM'd you as well. Let me know if I can be of assistance. All the best. Steve.
  13. It's the strangest thing. You expect a burbling V8 and instead... that RB powered sound. 🤔
  14. https://www.facebook.com/RacePaceMotorsport/posts/2454637471269710 For those of you on FriendFace...
  15. Here's a video of it on a Dyno: https://www.whichcar.com.au/tv/xy-falcon-with-nissan-gtr-running-gear
  16. Bump. I still have this car. Am still looking to move it on. Let me know if you are interested, it's a good car and a genuine sale. Price is 5k for the lot. Come and see the car, we're nearly back into good weather for car shenanigans...
  17. I kind of like the above as stated by OP. My only comment is where would Build Threads/Upkeep go? I really like these threads and are where I spend quite a bit of time. Could we also add a Build Thread into here like this: 1986-2002 RB Series Forced Induction General Maintenance Suspension & Braking Build / Upkeep I too like the idea of sorting by generation of Skyline. It's how my mind thinks about these cars. I know an awful lot about R32, R33 and R34, but couldn't tell you the first thing about a R35 (ok, well maybe the first thing, but not much else).
  18. I 100% concur with this statement. Apple people seem to be obsessed with apps to a fault. Instead of doing a decent web app/site they chose to release an iPhone and iPad app, then acted all surprised that it needs a billion years of development/support just to keep it running. 😡 (Source: I used to work for the example above).
  19. So I guess I was the only heavy user on the app then... 😮 I have just added the page to my home screen as a shortcut. It's ever so slightly different, but not really an issue. I found that the app (and mobile) are waaaaayy more convenient for uploading images. None of my pictures are on my laptop.
  20. @PranK I would be willing to volunteer my time to assist with the upkeep of the SAU website. I'm not sure what that involves. But I work in IT and have a Support (for a software product) background. If you think i might be of some use to you, please let me know. I can very quickly tell you if i'm in over my head of course.
  21. A budget and location might help you here. Are you looking in Japan also (i'm assuming you are looking in Aus)?
  22. Have a look through these threads. Some are ancient though, so make sure you follow up by viewing their Google or Facebook reviews or asking someone who uses one of them. https://www.sau.com.au/forums/index.php?/topic/455728-Which-Workshop/tuner? https://www.sau.com.au/forums/index.php?/topic/437803-Reputable-Workshop-In-Brisbane https://www.sau.com.au/forums/index.php?/topic/421478-Brisbane-Workshop/tuners? https://www.sau.com.au/forums/index.php?/topic/477015-Mechanics-Brisbane-Area I'm sorry i can't be more help. As mentioned I've never purchased from QLD. [emoji848] Good luck. [emoji106]
