  1. So I should probably update from the past 2 rallies. The Snowy River sprint was stinking hot, we ended up with 60 deg cabin tempatures. Unfortunatly we did the weekend on 10psi of boost, as the boost solenoid failed. But we still set top 3 times most of the weekend with no power. Luckely for us the event got cut short because of bushfires, the heat had also killed the alternator I left the car in melb for 3 weeks between Snowy River and GTR. When I picked it up I replaced the alt and solenoid. GTR was a better rally. I had a new nav so we lost a fair bit of time in the morning getting up to speed with each other. But by the end of the event we were getting stage wins. We ended up finishing 2nd in the championship, which I can't really complain about since the car was temperamental for most of the year.
  2. Engine is all together and running again. I took the car for a quick run tonight and there were no leaks, which always makes a day better. I'kk put some km on it this weekend and it;ll be all ready for snowy river
  3. Rain doesn't hurt haha. I've heard the road is pretty grippy in the wet. We'll have to have a beer on the Sunday night They are coming along well, the engine will be back in the car this weekend. I've got the head on most of the manifold on. just need to fit turbo and sump and it's good to go in
  4. The pistons have had a good life. 6 years of racing on a set of std pistons
  5. I'll be there, but it turns out that the spark plug problem that caused the ecu to miss count trigger teeth and fire 30 deg out caused a fair bit on damage. The machine shop found a 9 thou bow in the bore, so I pulled all the rings off the pistons to check them, once the rings came off the ring lands fell out. So i'm going oversized ross pistons, hopefully i'll have everything back this week to put it back together.
  6. The Skyline dash is suede from spotlight, at the time it was cheaper than flocking. I did get a flock kit from a woodwork shop to do the dash of the Subaru, it's pretty easy, paint the glue on then tip the flock on then wait.
  7. empty'd
  8. Sounds like we get advice from the same people. my restrictors are threaded so I'll be able to but new ones in, I was going to run mig tips but they were too hard to get a die over. I'm planning on 2x 0.9 (from 2x 1.5)
  9. So I did a hill climb a few weeks ago and the car was pushing oil again, so I decided to investigate it properly. I only got the problem after I put the new sump on, so I looked through some old logs and compared it to current logs. It turns out by fixing the oil pressure (or lack of pressure) problem I had created another with too much oil in the head. A few years ago I get followed the sydneykid guide for the oil restrictors (1.25mm and block), but that starved the head and made the lifers rattle. So now I'm going to have to go back to that setup. So since the head has to come off I've decided to strip it down and do rings and bearings, and also fix the bits that weren't done properly when it was rushed together the first time. So it's off at the machine shop at the moment to have it ready to go for snowy riger sprint in Sept
  10. Well my event turned to shit when I cut a corner a blew a tyre which we had to change in the middle of a stage. We sorted the car a fair bit over the rest of the event though. Here is our wet Sideling run, 1st in GT4 and 3rd overall
  11. Here is the incar from the wettest race
  12. Race 2 was great today, torrential rain. I went from 10th to 4th in the first lap before being red flagged. On the restart I went from 10th to 3rd on the first lap, and ended up 4th at the end of the race. I had oil pressure problems (not enough oil in sump) in the last race, so pulled the car in before I damaged anything. The calsonic car is a local one. gtst with gtr wide body and rb26. Emo isn't too bad I just need to find the correct oil level for the new sump for the circuit.
  13. Fire was pretty small. I overfilled the sump, so it spat a heap of oil out, when the catch can filled up it started putting oil in the engine bay, which found it's way onto the turbo. Made it out for race 1, but it was cut short because of an evo that couldn't handle the wet. Hoping for more rain tomorrow
  14. I think the Mustang only has about 700hp
