  2. Hi all, You may already be aware, Alpha Omega Racing have been developing adaptor kits to fit front Evo Brembo’s to S/R/Z chassis for some time now. As some of you are aware, they have recently finished development and testing of their rear kits, creating a cost effective way to get some bigger brakes on the rears of our cars. Alpha Omega Racing recently ran a group buy for the front kits and is now offering a group buy on the new rear kits, as well as a second round group buy on the front kits (now Version 3). The new version for the front kit means that now both front and rear are completely bolt-on (except for the dust shields being trimmed). The front kit previously required you to cut a tab off the hub. They are also stronger with the new design. Company: Alpha Omega Racing www.alphaomegaracing.com Products: Evo 350mm Brembo Front Brake Adaptor Kit and/or Evo 350mm Brembo Rear Brake Adaptor Kit. These adaptors are 100% CNC machined billet alloy, grade 7075, which is super lightweight and high strength. Fitment with 18x10 +15 What's included (front kit): - Left and right adapters made out of one piece of 7075-T6 billet aerospace alloy - Various high tensile 12.9 bolts and high tensile washers - Full installation instructions with pictures Front fitment with 17x9 +15 What's included (rear kit): - Left and right adapters made out of one piece of 7075-T6 billet aerospace alloy - Hub spacers - Various high tensile bolts and high tensile washers - Full installation instructions with pictures Rear fitment with 18x10 +35 What you need to get (front kit) - B.Y.O. or supplied by Alpha Omega Racing: - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo frontcalipers(including pads/pins/shims/clip) - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10 front 350x32mm rotors - Custom brake lines Alpha Omega Racing can supply all of the above parts, but you also have the options of sourcing them yourself. I personally sourced parts for my front kit elsewhere as I had my own lines made and picked up a cheap set of calipers. Alpha Omega Racing has these parts listed at: - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo frontcalipers (used) - $850 - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10front350x32mm DBA T3 rotors (new) - $470; or - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10front350x32mm DBA5000 2pc (new) - $1200 - HEL custom braided brake lines (new) - $130 What you need to get (rear kit) - B.Y.O. or supplied by Alpha Omega Racing: - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo rear calipers (including pads/pins/shims/clip) - Nissan 370Z rear 350x20mm rotors - Custom brake lines Again, Alpha Omega Racing can supply all of the above parts if desired. I personally sourced all parts from Alpha Omega Racing for convenience with the rear kit. Alpha Omega Racing has these parts listed at: - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo rear calipers (used) - $450 - Nissan 370Z rear 350x32mm DBA T2 rotors (new) - $450 - HEL custom braided brake lines (new) - $110 Silvia (180SX/S13/S14/S15) drivers who want a functioning hanbrake will need to use the R32/R33/R34/Z32 rear drum setup, a very common upgrade. It is also worth noting that the rear kit requires a 6mm hub spacer to be installed for caliper clearance, this will also push your wheel/tyre out a further 6mm so may affect guard clearances. Alpha Omega Racing can also offer services to rebuild your used calipers, powder coat them, or even install the whole kit. Using both the front and rear big brake kits developed by Alpha Omega will result in a 69:31 brake bias. Wheel clearance: Minimum of 17" race style wheels with good clearance are required. Brake Master Cylinder: You are able to retain your factory brake master cylinder, however it is recommended to upgrade to a brake master cylinder with a piston size of 17/16" (such as a BM57). Genuine OEM BM57 BMC’s are available from Alpha Omega Racing at a price of $500 (new), or you could also try to source from your usual Japanese parts suppliers or Nissan dealership if you desired. Price: The RRP for the front adaptor kit is $370 plus shipping, while the rear adaptor kit is $450 plus shipping. The group buy discount will be based on total number of kits being purchased, not the number of buyers, and will apply as such: - <5 kits = no discount - 5-11 kits = Front kit for $340ea, rear kit for $420ea, ($30 discount + free shipping) - 12-19 people = Front kit for $310ea, rear kit for $390ea, ($60 discount + free shipping) - 20+ people = Front kit for $280ea, rear kit for $360ea, (90 discount + free shipping) Alpha Omega Racing also offer packages with the adaptor kits and other required parts. They provide discounts on normal pricing, but will also be offered with the $30/60/90 discounted pricing of this group buy based on numbers, meaning a further saving. These packages are: - Half kit – includes the adaptor kit and custom brake lines Front – $449 (reduced from $500) less group buy discount Rear – $499 (reduced from $560) less group buy discount - Full kit – half kit, plus calipers (used) and DBA rotors Front – $1649 (reduced from $1820) less group buy discount Rear – $1299 (reduced from $1460) less group buy discount - Boss kit – full kit, plus full rebuild kit/service and powder coating of calipers Front – $2179 (reduced from $2400) less group buy discount Rear – $1709 (reduced from $1930) less group buy discount Fitment with 18x9 +30 Group Buy Condition: The group buy will run for a two (2) week period, finishing at close of business on 11th November 2015. Anybody interested in purchasing either of the kits/packages as part of the group buy should notify me by the cut-off date and I will add them to the 'buyer list'. At the conclusion of the group buy period I will tally the number of buyers and advise Alpha Omega with the total numbers. A discount ‘coupon code’ will be provided to each buyer allowing them to get the appropriate discount in the shopping cart on the Alpha Omega Racing website. NOTE: Group buy is a PRE-ORDER and will have an approximate four (4) week wait between payment from all parties and delivery. Prior to the cut-off date all communication will be with me either via this thread or via PM. At the conclusion of the group buy, once you have been provided with the discount code, all communication will be between the buyer and Alpha Omega Racing.

  3. Alpha Omega Racing’s MONSTAR Ignition Kit for Skylines Group Buy Alpha Omega Racing’s MONSTAR Ignition Kit for Skylines Group Buy Hi all, Alpha Omega Racing are running another group buy, but this time on their new MONSTAR ignition kits for various model Skylines. Company: Alpha Omega Racing - http://www.alphaomegaracing.com I’m sure that most of you would know of Alpha Omega Racing by now, most likely because of their big brake kits which use the bigger Evo calipers. They also market a lot of other products for Skylines and Silvias, including one piece lightweight tailshafts, and now, upgraded ignition kits, allowing us to easily take advantage of the ACDelco LQ9 coilpacks (also known as LS2Truck or D585 coilpacks). Product: MONSTAR Ignition Kit (Version 2) to suit Skylines fitted with: RB20DET RB25DET (non-NEO) RB26DETT Note: The kit to suit RB25DET NEO is still in testing, if interested, please let me know via PM. After testing on various vehicles on the street and track, including their own S15 Silvia which competed at World Time Attack Challenge, Version 2 was designed. It adds secure coilpack keying (CMM measured coilpacks, CNC machined recessing) and machined-through cooling slots. Why use ACDelco LQ9 coilpacks? Strongest coilpack used by an OEM No misfires = more reliable power Best throttle response Increased mileage Guaranteed perfect fit Uses OEM connectors Features of Version 2: Billet aerospace alloy 100% CNC machined in one continuous piece Top side cooling slots machined through with heat sink cooling Bottom side accurately “keyed” to secure and cool coilpacks Fastened with the most bolts possible: 5 bolts What’s Included? The MONSTAR Ignition includes everything needed to bolt in and wire up your new coilpacks: 1 x CNC machined billet alloy coilpack holder 5 x CNC machined billet alloy stands 1 x CNC machined billet stainless steel spring installation tool 6 x LQ9 electrical plug kits Various bolts and washers Full installation instructions with colour pictures What you need to get: 6x LQ9 / D585 / LS2 TRUCK coilpacks Alpha Omega Racing recommend OEM “AC Delco” coilpacks for quality, reliability and performance. Special SAU Edition: With the order for this group buy, “SAU Edition” will be laser beamed onto the rear. Colours: This group buy will include free custom colour anodising (normally has minimum cost of $150+). Colour options are: red, blue, black, silver, gold and green. Pricing: Please note all pricing below is ex GST. Prices do not include shipping. Free pickup is available. All discounts will be applied prior to calculating GST. RRP = $420 + GST + shipping 1 - 5 people - $370 + GST + shipping ($50 discount + free anodising = save $200) 6 - 10 people - $320 + GST + shipping ($100 discount + free anodising = save $250) 11 - 15 people - $270 + GST + shipping ($150 discount + free anodising = save $300) 20+ people - $220 + GST + shipping ($200 discount + free anodising = save $350) Group Buy Conditions: The group buy will run until close of business on Tuesday 30th May 2017. Anybody interested in purchasing an ignition kit as part of the group buy should notify me via PM prior to the end date so that I can add them to the ‘buyer list’. At the conclusion of the group buy (30th-31st May 2017), I will provide Alpha Omega Racing with a total tally of person(s) included in the group buy. A discount ‘coupon code’ will be provided to each buyer on the 1st June 2017 allowing them to get the appropriate discount in the shopping cart on the Alpha Omega Racing website. Note: Production for this group buy will not begin until all orders are placed and payments are cleared. Unfortunately in some previous group buys some buyers have not followed through meaning a higher discount was applied for the number of actual purchases. Timeframe for production and delivery of the ignition kits is 9 weeks from payments clearing. Prior to the end date (30th May 2017) all communication will be with me either via this thread or via PM. At the conclusion of the group buy, once you have been provided with the discount code, all communication will be between the buyer and Alpha Omega Racing. All shipping and payment details will be between the buyer and Alpha Omega Racing only. Any warranty on the product(s) will be provided by Alpha Omega Racing.

  4. Review: Alpha Omega Racing Evo 350mm Brembo Rear Brake Adapter Kit - WTAC Edition Hey all, decided to put a review together for the Alpha Omega Racing Evo 350mm Brembo rear brake kit (WTAC edition). This is a new version of the rear adaptor kit developed by Alpha Omega Racing, designed with the intention to meet World Time Attack Challenge clubsprint rules. I have been running the original rear kit for the last 6 months (?? maybe longer lol) so this review will be more so related to the comparison when installing. Company/Product: Alpha Omega Racing / Evo 350mm Brembo Rear Brake Adaptor Kit - WTAC Edition Price: $400 plus postage Link: http://alphaomegaracing.com/p/149/c/72/Z32/ALPHA-OMEGA/Evo-350mm-Brembo-Rear-Brake-Adapter-Kit-WTAC-Edition.html Purpose: This kit allows you to fit rear Brembo calipers from an Evo 5-9 (all the same) with Nissan 370Z rear rotors (350mm diameter) to your R32/R33/R34/S13 (5 stud)/S14/S15/Z32/Z33. What's included: - Left and right adapters made out of one piece of 7075-T6 billet aerospace alloy - Various high tensile bolts and high tensile washers - Full installation instructions with pictures What else you'll need: - Mitsubishi Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo rear calipers and brake pads - Nissan 370Z rear rotors (350mmx20mm) - Custom brake lines Alpha Omega Racing is able to provide all of the above parts as well as parts and services (labour) for rebuilding calipers and even fitting if you are not comfortable doing so yourself. I personally opted to get the parts from Alpha Omega Racing for the rear kit for the convenience factor at the time. The kit makes use of the Nissan 370Z rear 350mm rotors for better brake bias and heat dispersion. When using the front and rear kits designed by Alpha Omega Racing the brake bias is calculated to be a ratio of 69:31. I have chosen to continue running Intima Performance Brake Pads and am using their Type SR pads in this application. Test vehicle: 1998 Nissan Skyline R34 GTT - originally factory rotors and calipers, then upgraded to the original rear kit designed by Alpha Omega Racing Unboxing the kit: The new WTAC edition kit arrived quickly and was well packaged. Much like their other adaptors, these new adaptors are very light as you'd expect being made from billet alloy and appear to be of good quality. Alpha Omega Racing is etched on one side, whilst 'Made in Australia' is etched on the other. All bolts and washers were included along with installation instructions. I already had all other parts required as I previously had the original rear kit installed and was changing purely to meet WTAC clubsprint rules. Installation: Installation was pretty straight forward. The most painful part was actually removing the old kit due to the use of the hub spacer. Once this was removed and the factory parts were all bolted back up, the adaptor kit bolted straight on without issue. Normally I would have been required to trim the dust shield/back plate, but I had already done this when installing the original kit. The calipers are required to be 'shaved' a little for fitment with this kit, my trusty angle grinder helped out here and made for easy work. The place that requires shaving has no effect on the performance of the caliper and is very minimal (see photo below). Once the calipers were sorted, I was able to put the rear rotors back on and bolt the calipers straight up! Fitment looks just as good as it did before with the original rear kit. Performance: In terms of performance, I have not had the car back on track after installing the WTAC edition rear kit. However having had the original rear kit on the car for some time now I feel performance will be similar. Will report back soon with an update though. The original rear kit created a much better braking bias for the car. ABS is disconnected in my car so took a little bit to get used to how hard I could jump on the brakes, but once I adjusted I was definitely impressed with the increase in braking ability. Will provide an update on this once I've had the car back on track (after WTAC). Overall Opinion: Overall I would say I'm very happy with the kit. The quality of the new kit matched that of the front kit and I found the install to be fairly easy. The flexibility to either source parts yourself of purchase from Alpha Omega Racing is great, if you have the time to source your own parts you might save a few dollars, but if you want to buy everything together it makes the process quicker, and you essentially have a ready to go kit. As mentioned, I will add some updates after WTAC, but if anyone has any questions regarding the kit, its install, or any other particulars, please feel free to ask me either in this thread or by sending me a PM.

  6. Hi all, Alpha Omega Racing are looking for people that may be in the market and/or interesting in trialling their newly designed 1 piece alloy tailshaft. The guys at Alpha Omega Racing already produce an awesome 1 piece tailshaft to suit Z32 gearbox's in Silvia's and are looking to produce something similar to suit Skylines. You can view their current tailshaft here: http://alphaomegaracing.com/p/90/c/71/All-Products/ALPHA-OMEGA/Z32-Gearbox-Conversion-Tailshaft-1-piece-3-5-lightweight-alloy.html Current highlights are: 42% ROTATIONAL weight saving 10,000RPM 1,500Nm There will be two new categories that Alpha Omega Racing are wanting to make tailshafts for, RWD and AWD Skylines. RWD – Other than length, they will be exactly the same as the current spec tailshaft. Current plans will be to design and sell tailshafts suited for R33 GTS-t and R34 GTT. RRP = $1090 ETA = 2 weeks AWD – There will be more work involved in designing/producing these and as such cost/time will increase. They are wanting to design and sell for R32, R33, and R34 GTR. RRP = ~$1450 ETA = 7 weeks For initial testing, Alpha Omega Racing are looking to test tailshafts on R34 GTT’s and R34 GTR’s. The plan is to have three testers for each. All testers will be required to leave a full deposit as security which will be 100% refunded on return. Shipping will be covered both ways so you don’t pay anything at all. Alternatively, testers can choose to purchase the tailshaft at the end of the test period and will be given a discounted price as a thank you (difference would be refunded from security deposit). There are no obligations. What is Alpha Omega Racing looking for? As a tester, you would be expected to provide detailed feedback regarding the installation of the tailshaft and its performance once fitted. It would be expected that once the tailshaft is fitted you would be actively driving your Skyline (street and/or track) in order to thoroughly test it. You will need to remove your standard tailshaft and take a measurement for them, so that they can manufacture the shafts correctly for your exact model and trim level. Anyone wanting to express interest in being a tester please either make a post in this thread of PM myself. Please include some basic details of current mods on your car and whether it is primarily driven on the street or on the track. There will only be a limited number of people chosen to test the tailshafts. EOI required for: - R32 GTR - R33 GTR - R34 GTR - R33 GTST - R34 GTT
  7. I have decided to put together a quick review of my brake upgrade as I’ve received quite a lot of interest and have received many questions regarding them. So here it is, a quick overview of the kit, parts I chose and why, issues I came across when installing, and my final thoughts after getting the car on the track. Company/Product: Alpha Omega Racing / Evo 350mm Brembo front brake adaptor kit Price: $370 plus postage Links: http://www.alphaomegaracing.com http://alphaomegaracing.com/p/50/c/73/Z33/ALPHA-OMEGA/Evo-350mm-Brembo-Brakes-Adapter-Kit-Version-2.html Purpose: The kit allows you to fit front Brembo calipers from an Evo 5-9 (all the same) with Evo X rotors (350mm) to your R32/R33/R34/S13 (5 stud)/S14/S15/Z32/Z33. What’s included: - Pair of CNC machined 7075 billet alloy caliper adaptors - High tensile bolts and washers - Installation instructions (with pictures) What else you need: - Mitsubishi Evo 5/6/7/8/9 Brembo front calipers and brake pads - Mitsubishi Evo X front rotors (350x32mm) - Custom brake lines Alpha Omega Racing is able to provide all of the above parts as well as parts and services (labour) for rebuilding calipers and even fitting if you are not comfortable doing so yourself. I personally opted to source the parts myself but the convenience factor is there of getting everything you need in one spot if preferred. The kit makes use of the Evo X 350mm rotors as opposed to the Evo 5/6/7/8/9 320mm rotors due to a couple of engineering issues, and of course better heat dispersion. Read more regarding the engineering issues on their page here: http://alphaomegaracing.com/i/9/Evo-Brembo-Brakes-On-A-Nissan-Adapter-Designs.html I personally purchased some calipers at a particularly cheap price which I found at the time, along with some Attkd 2 piece rotors. I also fitted these with some new Intima Type D pads. The car sees reasonably frequent track use so going for either RDA or DBA slotted rotors may be better suited for others. I had some custom brake lines made up at a local business which are required due to the Brembo calipers having banjo fittings. I had read in a couple of places that stock Evo lines would fit but it was found that they are too short and would pull on full lock. Test vehicle: 1998 Nissan Skyline R34 GTT – upgraded from stock calipers with DBA4000 T3 slotted rotors Unboxing the kit: The adaptor kit arrived super quickly and was packaged as well as you would expect this kind of part to be. The adaptors are super light being made from billet alloy and appeared to be of very good quality. They have Alpha Omega Racing etched on one side and ‘Made in Australia’ etched on the other. The kit included all bolts required with washers and an instruction booklet. Installation: Install was easy with the only issue I came across being that one of the bolts from the adaptor kit to the hub is slightly interfered with by where the factory brake line bracket is bolted to the hub (I believe this is not on all vehicles that the kit is designed for). The issue is outlined in the instructions provided with the kit, something I would have realised and known about had I looked at them prior to beginning the install (but hey, who ever reads instructions lol). Quick fix with an angle grinder and they bolted straight up with perfect alignment. The bracket is a non-structural component and is purely a mounting point for the stock brake line so there was no issue with removing it. Initial impressions on the street: A quick ‘spirited’ drive of the car after fitment and I found the braking to have more bite, as you would expect with the larger contact area of the pads. The brake pedal had a tiny bit more travel in it due to retaining the stock brake master cylinder. Alpha Omega Racing do recommend upgrading to a BM57 master cylinder, which I did purchase elsewhere but this turned out to be a faulty unit so I refitted the stock unit in order to get the car driving. Impressions on the track: About two weeks after fitment I attended a Wakefield Park track day to test out the new setup. I was definitely impressed and it took some getting used to being able to brake later at the kink/turn 2 especially. On the day I was able to knock 1 second off my previous PB and felt that I was still adapting to how well the brakes could pull the car up. The pedal feel was softer then before but not bad, it had more travel which some would prefer. My next attendance at the track saw me cut another 0.7 seconds off my PB, meaning I had cut almost 2 seconds off my times previous to the brake upgrade. By this point I had gone from braking between the end of the wall and the kink with the stock setup to now braking after the kink. Overall opinion: The quality of the adaptor kit is top notch and the customer service provided by Wing at Alpha Omega Racing was great. The install/fitment was perfect and the only thing that could have improved on this would be for me to read the provided instructions as I already mentioned. The flexibility to purchase the other parts is great as it allows for the money conscience buyer to source their parts or use already owned parts, or for the track conscious people out there to upgrade the setup even more. For the time conscious person, everything can be purchased from Alpha Omega Racing making it a quick process to get everything needed. The upgrade over the standard setup is definitely noticeable in terms of braking ability and the larger discs help with heat distribution too. Retaining a stock rear brake setup (freshly machined rotors with Intima Type D pads) did mean the braking was notably more front bias, but the car did not feel greatly unsettled by this. Alpha Omega Racing is currently releasing a rear upgrade kit which will aide in returning a more balanced bias. The recommendation to upgrade to the larger brake master cylinder would also improve pedal feel however I do not feel is ‘necessary’ in my car. This would probably be a different story in a Silvia or R33 GTS-t which both have a smaller unit. The kit originally caught my eye because the Evo Brembo’s have larger pistons and more pad area, while being a cheaper option to the ‘factory GTR Brembo upgrade’. Suffice to say I am definitely happy with the upgrade and will be looking forward to getting my hands on the rear kit. If anyone has any questions regarding the kit, its install, or any particulars about the performance on track, please feel free to ask me either in this thread or by sending me a PM.
