  1. Is it just me or is there something really wrong with the wheel alignment on that 350z ? ?
  2. Seems you have sort of answered your own problem Hmmmm . . . In my opinion get rid if that cone filter and use and original one or multiples of one All it doing is sucking hot air into the engine for the hot engine bay What does the original air box look like ? It can be a starting point to re-engineering it. Basically you need to convert that entire guard corner to an insulated area for a filter to sit that is pulling cold air from the outside of the car. Here's an example of what can done on my R33 a while ago using the original cold air intake
  3. Dude you gotta give us more info like: Model of car ? Alarm ? Have you done anything to it recently ? Etc Etc The more info you give us the more we can help
  4. Oh no I made a mistake ! I wouldn't buy a 2021 BMW M8 Competition F93 Auto M xDrive ! Its the 2021 BMW M8 Competition F92 Auto M xDrive I was after ! ! ! Don't need four doors . . . . . But you, in the end, are correct. Got house buying priorities first at the moment
  5. Don't be dericulus ! For a $185 ? I got the BMW M8 Competition F93 Auto M xDrive
  6. Funny you should mention starter motors ! Mine went as well. Second hand around $150 Re-coed with warranty $185 ! Guess which one I went with !
  7. Have you checked the clutch pedal box is intact ? They are notorious for breaking the spot welds. Sometimes it can be hard to see as you've got to flip upside down in the foot well to see it !
  8. Man you gotta give that little tikes cozy coup an roof chop ! 10cm to start !
  9. I have, over the years given this advice as much as possible: Are you confusing the way the car rides or how the car handles ? Change the anti-roll bars ( that's sway bars ) FIRST. If you change the handling characteristics, from a body roll ( sway ) point of view, you may well find the present shock/coil over set up OK. This in the end will be a personal choice being affected as to how you use the car. Saying this, on my R33 I went for 27mm Whiteline (which is solid) front and factory 27mm R33 GTR rear (which is hollow) anti roll bars. Another bonus is you may well save by not having to buy a set of coil overs you never really needed !
  10. Bahahaha ! Fixed and modified for the neighbors kid this: Max Force Shadow Hawk 100 ! Replaced the two piece plastic barrel with an single piece aluminium one and rough spiral honed it internally to get a bit of spin on the projectile Replaced the air sealing mechanism. Replaced the air pump mechanism with a decent mountain bike pump with increase spring pressure. Now fires out to around 200ft( Im sorry 60m) but not very accurately though ! And before you ask it fires water soaked paper "bullets" that splatter when they hit. BLOODY COVID LOCK DOWN MADE ME DO IT !
  11. Man whats happenenen in the land of the maple leaf with the 32 ?? Its been like a billion years since you posted with progress !
  12. Is that because its the only bull-bar equipped Skyline in the world ? ? ?
  13. Oh you killjoy ! You took away the link ! We were just getting warmed up ! And I really like that aero package on that 34. Looks like the aerodynamics of a . . . . . . Lambo . . no no Ferrari . . .wait wait . . Maclaren . . no no that's not it . . . . ah got it - parachute
  14. Also a luggage boot rack for a R33 Series 1 please. The one that will fit over the rear spoiler because I don't want to change the aerodynamic down force by removing it.
  15. And a R33 tow bar that has the facilities for a bike rack as well for me please
  16. I think in NSW you cant sell them just a plates . . . . so how about a barter or trade . . . Soooooo . . . I got goats . . and approximate carcass price / weight would end up at around 65 goats or around $600 ! ! ? ? ! !
  17. Oh Noooooooo ! Does this mean I've got to throw my RB25DET Pro version into the bin now . . . . . Damb ! I gotta start saving up my little lunch AND lunch money again ? ? ? 2 minute noodles ! 2 minute noodles ! 2 minute noodles ! Save Save Save !
  18. Cars fine as I'm fairly fastidious with maintenance on it and over the years I've personalized it to suit exactly my taste both cosmetically and mechanically. Only "major" issue is that the bonnet and boot clear coat is gone and needs re-doing however the rest of the paint is ok and I'll wait to do the whole car. All in all I guess what you put in and how you treat it goes a long way. Over the years I've had a lot of arguments / debates with people as to being told what oil ( don't even start me ), suspension set ups ( leave that alone ), tires ( don't even think about it ) etc etc to run for my car but in the end experience over time and a lot of research, in later years with the information streams available now, have helped out heaps.
  19. Mine ! 1994 GTST with 49000 km on the clock when I bought it and I am the first owner in Aus And had two before that which were lost to accidents that weren't my fault. This one owned for around 14 years as well and paid 13.5k for mine. Has been my daily every single day since I got it. Now has 462,000 km on the clock and still going strong. I cant speak more highly of the good engineering that has lasted over time as I have owned a lot of different cars over the years. He then screams "INCOMING" hits the ground and crawls on his elbows to his dugout to avoid the flaming missiles ! !
  20. Ah seeing those Manley H-beam con rods takes me back. . . way back to my small block Chev days. The days of the 80's when a set ( or similar, Carillo ) for a small block came in at $2100 and that was a big hit to the wallet for what I was earning back then ! Ah good old dinosaur days . . . . .
  21. Have you tried Mobility Engineering in Asquith NSW ? I found a 5Zigen Twin Mode clutch system. Allows operation of the clutch on the gear stick. Bit hard to find now though
