  1. I have house, baby, GTR, GTS-T AND 88E banks hate him
  2. Check out Scotty if he’s still doing fabrication work
  3. It should be robust as spec stocks generally trade on futures. Never made sense to me that current prices of oil affect so immediately the share price of a “one day hopeful” explorer. Lamenting not having sold at 2.6 and bought back in low, but ya just never know with these things. One thing I do know is 1.6 is frikken cheap so I bought a parcel today. But yes, ASX is a blood bath. Great time to buy blue chips for guaranteed small returns. A2 milk is a pretty safe bet for bounce back as there’s no slowing that company in the long term. Will be $20 before the year end.
  4. I still drive my GTS-T daily. I’ve plans to drive my 33R daily at some point (haha). With Nismo remanufacturing components, the support would technically be there for driving classics on the road without as much worry about breakage...but I’m guessing those who are paying the dollars being asked for such examples can afford more than one car or something luxurious, or want something more comfortable as a daily. Personally, I can’t deal with driving boring cars in the daily. Every day the drive is interesting.
  5. We in an age where the top comments on YouTube are sometimes a summation of the video so people don’t have to watch it for a few minutes 😂
  6. Your answer is two posts above yours
  7. What’s astounding is how unpopular these cars are given what you get and how they perform...really a bargain compared to anything similarly priced in Aussie or Euro of the same era and spec.
  8. 275rwkw is what we got to with plenty of headroom on an honest dyno. I would probably say 300rwkw is a safe max limit for 555 on E85. Anything more and I would be considering 740 or 1000. The 040 pump can handle a fair bit more power before you’d want to switch to a high flower or twin pump setup. I did eventually change my fuel hoses (some of them anyway) for E85 compatible ones because the factory ones developed a minor leak - after 25 years running for 6 of those years with a fuel that is harsh on rubber, it’s to be expected. Hope that helps.
  9. So should you have been considering they own half of Nissan
  10. I just think...with anything turbo petrol the option is at least there for modest performance increases whether flash tuning or manual boost increase. Or all out with E85 if you have the commitment. Don't think many buy an MX5 to go quick with the loud pedal, and likewise I doubt that's your goal, but I've always been disappointed by the lack of power in cheap RWD coupes and convertibles. Considering how easily Toyota and Subaru could have done it with their expanse of engine line up; regardless of how good the 86 is, no one's ever said it has too much power.
  11. Yeah I'm not at all unhappy about it haha...it's testament to quality that the rest of the car holds up after 25 years while small things like this hose that would have failed a decade ago on other cars, are only now letting go...after exceeding factory requirements.
