  1. And just because it made the car so much more enjoyable to drive and was such a simple mod, here's what I used in case anyone's interested. Just make certain you dial in enough to allow the clutch to fully disengage the clutch at the stop of course. Reverse is good for this test since it doesn't have synchros so you can feel if it's clear.
  2. Since this has been revived, for those who still wondered, yes, twin plate settled down just fine. No shudder at all now that it's worn in no matter what I do. Amazing clutch, holds the power so well, and just lovely to use. One thing a few people have mentioned was that the bite is high, yes it is and it clearly has a shorter effective stroke than my old one. I had trouble with this as I drive two other manuals so getting into this was odd and took some adjusting each time. So I pulled the little plastic stop out of the clutch pedal and replaced it with a 12mm both and two nuts so I could adjust it to stop where ever I wanted. It's now absolutely perfect. Reduced the travel and it's much more drivable with the shorter throw and now just a joy. Has been for the last 6 years love it, will do it all again when time comes.
  3. For Sale, Set of four (4) Japanese Enkei RPF-1 Wheels GTR size Enkei RPF1 10.5/18 +15 5x114.3 stud pattern Wheels are virtually new apart from one with a little rash as in photo, otherwise perfect and barely used. Wheels have worn (see pics) Yokohama Advan A048 Semi Slicks which were used purely at the track. Were fitted on R33 GTR. Pic shows fitment on my car with no need for spacers. Pick up only for now (Eastern suburbs Vic) $1,850.00 Msg me on 0407 438 857.
  4. I put RPF1's in 10.5x18 +15 on my 33 and stuck with the 265 sections. Some brands run a little narrower at the tread however the Bridgies and Yokies I've had on it don't seem to be stretched at all, I asked a few tyre places about this and they said it's perfectly fine on that rim. The Semi's run even wider as a 265 so sit perfectly. I have no issue at all with the 265 on the 10.5.
  5. Thanks all for the enquiries, car has been spoken for. Will let you know if anything changes. Cheers again for the interest and good luck with the search. Mods welcome to remove.
  6. Hi all, apologies again for the indecision, have been uncertain about selling, just love her, however seems wrong to just sit there and not be used as was intended. So the ole girl is definitely up for sale. Description is as per the original advertisement, however the only things to change are that I put a couple more kms on her and fitted four brand new Bridgestone Potenzas ready for a RWC. Apart from that, same. So price is as per original advertisement and any questions, please feel free to contact me. Regards Jon.
  7. Yah, Ti is extremely light, mild steel definitely not, however in terms of noise, Ti tends to sound a little higher pitched to my ears. I would say Ti produces a higher pitched sound than Stainless. All three materials have quite different sounds in my opinion. I don't know the true weight penalty of a steel system nor whether I'd really feel in in a 480hp GTR, but I'm pleased with the sound. Hope you find a good one, they seem to be hard to come by.
  8. I understand that an exhaust made of mild steel produces a deeper sound to that of a stainless exhaust. This is likely due to the wall thickness of the tubing. Mine is a custom steel system and sounds deeper than all of the Jap stainless systems I've heard. Unless there's something else at play. I would also recommend not being afraid of buying a car that's been modified if they're nice correctly fitted mods. You'll end up doing it yourself anyway. Oh and you'll love it, I had mine up for sale recently and just couldn't bare to do it. You'll see.
  9. Ah I've just seen this, nice work Milan! Found your 34, beaut car mate, glad you found what you wanted and didn't settle. Must be a joy. Congrats bud.
  10. J, 1M is unbelievably. I wanted an E46M3, but couldn't love it, so decided on an E92 M3, still didn't. Drove many of them and just couldn't get into them, drove the 1M by chance and 5 minutes in, was wondering if they'd give me a discount if I put a deposit on the day. It was that good. It has a face only a mother could love, but on the road it's a monster. Breaks traction all the way to third and if you just want to potter, it'll do that too. So for me it was the perfect car just to get around in, but hit a fast mountain pass, and it's vicious and incredibly entertaining. And it feels Old school raw... properly raw. If you're seriously considering one, take one for a drive if possible, and I dare you to not buy it. If you want any more info, happy to have a chat.
  11. Can relate to this, when I see a clean 33GTR on the road, nothing makes me do the "Yeah........ look at that......." like them. I love how tough and wide they look. Ended up buying a 1M, couldn't let go of the GTR, now the 1M's the daily.
  12. Hi sorry gents, Milan is right, I left the country for a bit but I'm back. I was going through a hard time with having to sell her, however fortunately for me, my current circumstances have now changed and I've concluded that at this stage, I am able to keep the car. Sorry again for taking everyone's time, however it was genuinely for sale. Thanks again for the enquiries and good luck with your search. Milan, thanks for letting the forum know that I was away, and good luck with the 34. Cheers.
  13. For sale, Works Engineering 13 row oil cooler. This came out of my car as I went to a bigger one. As per pics, bit scratched but works perfectly. Lines are braided and both 1m long. Does not come with sandwitch plate as that's still on the car, heaps of them for less than $40 off ebay if you need one. Note also the installer cut the mounting tabs off one end as he used the other end to mount vertically. Pickup only from Melbourne area thanks. $50.00
