    Knowing Nissan ECU's, it'll compensate for the increase in boost by throwing even more fuel in. Are there tunable options for the gloria? Nistune / PowerFC etc?

    Cue video memories to make Leigh feel comfortable and safe...

    A few laps should be fine in the STI, keep at eye on the oil/water temps and it won't be an issue. The main problems I've seen on stock cars at Sandown are brakes not being cooled down properly. 2 x 60km->200km for each straight means full throttle for like 20 seconds each time. Make sure you go easy on the gearbox and don't try to shave off time by smashing gears. 2 x 200km->80km (maybe 100 on the back straight, I don't know) also means the brakes get a big workout. Make sure you don't superheat them, I had the adhesive on A1RM's fail, the pads completely disintegrated into powder. Make sure you don't park the car with hot rotors, they will warp or crack if they cool unevenly, if you don't get a full cooldown lap make sure you do 3-4 laps of the carpark instead, and put a chock behind your wheel instead of pulling on the handbrake when you do park it up. Saw some GTR Brembos make a huge PING sound a few minutes after parking, and everyone that heard it just winced when they saw the source of the noise. TLDR; Sandown, high speed braking, kills rotors, pads, tyres. All easily avoidable if you drive to the (track and car) conditions

    More like, no photos because if it hit 9 news then it'd be 'Winton encourages young hoons to drive beyond their limits, somebody think of the children that weren't there'

    So has anyone actually made a decent profit off 88e (other than Birds pre-VWL 88e announcements) or does it just keep bouncing around and being unpredictable?

    If you're just chopping them up, there is software that comes with the gopro that worked just fine when I last edited something a few years back...

    Also the reason that we made sure we did a sighting lap of the area and an 80% run through it... knew it was going to be a pain point even when rolling through it in the falcon to do cone setup in the morning.

    Fun day out there Pity about the rain later on in the day. Shoutouts to the VWLBBC members for showing up. Also, didn't get roped into a discussion about 88e once! Spotted Pat, Leigh, Grant, Birds, Liam, Martin, Huy.... Only one of us crashed and needed to be skull dragged out of a ditch. Good times

    Any laptop under $1000 is going to be garbage and you'll hate life. Any laptop under $500 goes one step further than that. Budget barebones systems are the reason Mac's got a reputation for being good quality, because they didn't fk with the lower end machines.

    Yep, you need to give them time to get quotes and charge your card first... I've noticed a few times that airport pickups are from undercover, but dropoffs are more often out in the sunlight... Much easier to see scratches and stuff in the sunlight, so you do miss a lot of things during the pickup inspection. In Thailand we got some nice new scooters for a few days, only 1000km on them, we made the biggest show of taking dozens of photos of each one. They didnt try anything when we returned them...

    Luckily NBNCo has started providing discounted CVC pricing to ISP's who can prove that they are not oversubscribing CVC bandwidth for the customers (since it is NBNCo who cops the blame if the network appears slow because of an ISP decision to skimp). It's all about contention ratios these days... and how quickly they'll escalate to nbnco if there is any physical problem with the nbnco section. One customer with an ISP might get amazing speeds since everyone in their area doesn't use the Net much so there is a heap of bandwidth available... They can make a recommendation to their friend, who lives in a different area and they sign up to horrible speeds because the ISP hasn't purchased enough CVC capacity in the second area. Certain ISP's have actually stopped signing up customers in some areas, since they can't guarentee them 100% perfect speeds (as it takes much less time to provision a customer (days) than it does to provision more CVC capacity from NBNCo (months)

    lol, thought the same thing when I popped off a turbo outlet hose on the F6 on a really hot day, on a hard shift from 1st to 2nd it just went bang and a puff of something came out the bonnet... Only a 2 minute fix, but 30 seconds of "oh shiiiii"... Didn't run like crap because of the MAP either, so didn't pick it as a pipe at first. 31 days till settlement, shiz getting real now.

    I've got a GTST and an FPV F6, can I come along? Sounds like a fun day out.

    They try to steal yours weekly, but jump in and try to start it... and its broken so they leave.
  21. For it to run with a Big Laggy Chinese turbo on it, it would need an ECU to control it and Injectors to supply a larger volume of fuel. What ECU / Tune and Injectors are you running on it now, or have you just changed the turbo back to standard?

    OEM is a little Side Mount Intercooler in front of the passenger side wheel well, so I imagine he's chasing aftermarket. Check out the "For Sale" section of the forums, should be a heap available in there. Which one you go for depends on your current mods, planned future mods and car purpose (track, street, drift, etc) and power goals. A $50 second hand cooler probably isn't going to cut it for a Time Attack car or a Drift Car where it's on boost most of the time

    I spent Friday laying in a blow up pool. I spent Saturday laying on a blow up flamingo, asleep for most of it. Listening to the Hottest 100 countdown on Saturday instead of Australia Day. I'm so glad they changed the date because people were offended that we were celebrating on the anniversary of such a horrific event. International Holocaust Remembrance Day was a much better choice.

    Considering Alvin got pinged for 'spoiler stays too sharp', I feel like the exhaust may be the least of its concerns
