  1. Had this happen to me on various electric motors over the years

    I've have success with putting the armature into an electric drill and polishing it with 1200 grade sandpaper.

    This will take the build up of carbon and dirt built up over the years on the copper.

    Reassemble then see how it goes.

    If this fails then you will have to look at the brushes as they can, as well, build up gunk and oxidize and fail to take the current to the armature.

    If its the brushes then all I did was go to and electrical repair shop, for power tools, with a set of vernier calipers and went through brushes until I found the right size and soldered them into place.

    If this fails then you've got to look at the armature or the winding itself and an electrical repair shop is going to have a poke and a prod at it.

    My money says its the brushes

    standard Skyline ownership, mine spends more time on tow trucks, hoists and jackstands than at the track or streets. I pay registration and drive it like 4 weeks a year and the rest is spent as a garage ornament or parked at paid private parking on a hoist at a workshop LOL

  3.  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




  4. 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 !

    I delimited all the Nerf guns.

    Bahahaha ! 

    Fixed and modified for the neighbors kid this:

    Max Force Toy Guns - Shadow Hawk 100, Maximizer 60 & Blowgun 35 Max Force  Guns

    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.
