  10. There's a 285 page Tarmac Rally thread which I have to admit was a great help and also a great motivational tool for me to get into doing Tarmac Rallies. I found out things in that thread which I didn't know about which helped me make the decision to get involved in the first place. Personally after 4 years of doing Tarmac Rallies I've decided to look at Circuit Racing mostly because of a desire to one day race at Bathurst. So I thought I'd start up this thread as a place for people to talk about circuit racing - both in what they are going to do or if they are like me and are thinking about getting involved what they need to do or even what they CAN do in a certain car. There are a number of guys on these forums who have done plenty of racing before so it would be great if they could pop in here with both thoughts, answers and events they have up-coming. My plan is to get involved in the Sports Car series with the hopeful aim of running at the Bathurst Motor Festival @ Easter next year. The R35 GT-R was recently added to the eligible cars in Group 2B/2F Sports Cars and the fact was it was almost nothing different regs wise to run an R35 in Sports Cars as to what it is under Tarmac Rally regs (I can do a lot MORE under 2B regs than we can under Tarmac Rally regs). But I could run in Sports Cars under fully Tarmac Rally specs with just the addition of a window net and slicks. I'm not 100% sure on what else Skylines / GT-R's can run under - hopefully some other experts come in and let us all know. I think they can run with the AASA Super TT's and in Improved Prpoduction but with restrictors. Personally I think the Sport Car regs are great for all GT-R's - as it should also be noted that even though R32-R34's are not on the 2B/2F eligibility list all of the Victorian, QLD and NSW Sports Car series are now allowing older GT-R's to run (as well as all models of BMW M3's and the Holden Monaro) if they are built to 2B regs. But an RB28 powered, sequential gearboxed light-weight GT-R on slicks can run in this class. And would be some fun! Anyways - my car is now 2B log booked and I've just received my PC license in the mail. It should also be noted now that getting your PC license is easier if you've been doing any form of club sprints / tarmac rallies. If you have done 2x tarmac rallies or 5 x club sprints in the previous 2 years you no longer need to complete an OLT to get your license. Also the lecture is now available on-line so getting my PC was a piece of cake personally. My plan now is to run a few more track days over the next 2 months to get the set-up done on the car (ran on slicks for the first time last month which is taking some getting used to) with the aim of running in my first event at Rnd 3 of the VSCRC at Sandown on July 20-21. What else are people up to?
  11. Hey guys, I thought I would start a dedicated thread for this question instead of hijacking my own build thread. We are building a Sports Sedan and have an RB power plant we are building for 500+rwkw. Question is...... Haltech or Motec? Already have The Haltech PS2000 and Racepak Dash. But some people have been saying go Motec at this stage. Thoughts?
  12. Check out the Nissan Micra Cup cars in Canada. Nismo suspension, roll cage, seat, brakes and tyres etc, $20k Canadian. I love this thing! I wonder how well it would make a daily... Maybe this is similar to the cup that Duncan used to race in (Mirages, right?) From the source article; So Awesome. What do you think? I reckon it'd be a blast! I wonder if you can buy one to use privately and not as part of the cup?
  13. I couldn't find the answer on Google or their website. Has anyone seen someone on their P's racing on a Wednesday night at eastern creek dragway?

  21. Hi Peoples. Was going to put these on my car, but circumstances have changed and I need the extra cash. What we have here is a full set of 4, lightweight, magnesium centered, 3 piece center lock racing rims. These have the rare deep centered face and can clear massive brakes. They are a staggered set. Sizes are: Front: 18" x 10" -2.5mm offset (8" inner barrel and 2" lip) Rear: 18" x 12" +1.5mm offset (9" inner barrel and 3" lip) They were originally off a Porsche 996 RSR cup car, so have a 130pcd for the drive pins. They are used, so if you want them shiny, the lips will need to be polished and the centers repainted, but they are racing rims. They have a silver face, but i was going to have them redone in BBS Gold. My personal favourite. Even when they are dirty, they still looking farking awesome!! They are all straight, without cracks and roll true. Asking $3500 plus delivery, or pick up from Wollongong NSW. These things are unreal, and would cost you almost $10,000 to buy brand new. So pick up an awesome set of rims for a fraction of the price, and best of all, being 3 piece you can change the barrels and lips to suit your needs. If you want close up pics of the rims, PM me your number and i can send them to your phone. Nothing says racecar like a genuine set of centerlock BBS racing wheels. And why centerlock???? Because RACECAR!!
  22. I have a set of 4 rims and tyres to suit a GTR for sale. I prefer to sell complete, but can separate if required. Rims: Work Emotion CR KAI 18 x 9.5 +20 offset in white No gutter rash! Very clean and hardly any marks They came off my R32 GT-R, will suit R33 and R34 GTR or GTSt (with wider fenders) They will also fit Evos as well. Tyres: Toyo R888 Semi slick tyres. 235 / 40 ZR 18 91Y I bought them brand new from Wheels World, drove home on them and then removed and never used since. So they would have about 70km I am chasing $3000 for both Rims and tyres. I'm in Western Australia but can post over east at buyers expense. Contact Tyron 040 752 4669 or Pm me

  24. After the last EOI ( died I'd see if we can organise another SimWorld event! So - We (SAUWA) is thinking of holding another Social Event at Simworld in Carousel after the huge success of the previous events. Everyone had a great time at the last couple events although there have been a couple inflicted with motion sickness so its quite a ride For those who don't know what SimWorld is check it out at These are full simulators, where you get thrown about etc, nothing like anything you've done before. The general format of the event is: Group 1 - 5min Practice - Course 1 Group 2 - 5min Practice - Course 1 Group 1 - 10min Race 1 Group 2 - 10min Race 1 Group 1 - 5min Practice - Course 2 Group 2 - 5min Practice - Course 2 Group 1 - 10min Race 2 Group 2 - 10min Race 2 Group 1 - 5 min practice - course 3 Group 2 - 5 min practice - course 3 Group 1 - 10min Race 3 Group 2 - 10min Race 3 Final - 15min Race (combined results from Race 1, 2, 3 & 4 will determine who is in the finals) * Minimum race time should be about an hour ** Comes with food supplied by Nandos or we can have pizza plus we can have BYO drinks *** Group size is 9, as there are 9 Simulators Note: The costs approximately $65 if we choose nandos or pizza or $50 without food but I would imagine majority will want food so everyone will have to pay $65 The a full race simulators, not simple arcade games, so it will definately be an experience. Friday nights we will get the longest time on the machines for our money and its been convenient for most people in the past. Maybe the 13th or the 20th of September might be a go-er? Please register your interest ASAP, so we can make this event happen. Please invite family members (friends, wives, older kids etc), as all Simulators are equal, and doesn't require a drivers license We'd like to have this filled with SAUWA Members and there familys/friends, but seeing as we didn't get enough interest I'll open it up to the rest of SAU from the get go. So far * Trevz * Lachy (Hank Scorpio) * Gary * Damo (Frosty) Cheers Hank
