Happy New Year.

I'm trying to avoid taking the car across Sydney and was wondering if anyone had used a transmission place in Western Sydney? All the names I can think of are tuning places.

Hopefully the solution is simply gearbox out, replace stuffed bit, gearbox in - but I'd prefer to use someone who knows their stuff just in case it's more complicated than I think it'll be.

Any info/advice would be appreciated! :P Thanks guys.

Give Kevin a call at Specialised Brake & Clutch (GavSport) on Glossop Road, St Marys (next to the hire place near the servo). He's very cluey with the Skylines and if his workshop can't fix it for you he'll put you onto someone reputable in the area.

He's done group buys in the past for SAU (clutches and brake gear) so mention you are from Skylines Australia.

GavSport: 0296730988

Cheers Lanfoh, I might give Pauls a call as well and see if he is more interested in the work.

Ben dude, the closest thing to a 1/4 mile ET is the WSID carpark on the SAU drag day :) I was just wondering if you circuit times had been updated and thought the 14.009 sounded more like a GTSt rather than a GTR time.

Hey what time does WSID kickoff? I've never actually made it out there (only moved here in Nov). If you're just observing, what's a good time to get there? They run ever second Wednesday, right?

Yup as NXTIME stated.

I've only missed 2 wed nite offstreet drags since the venue opened, 1 was coz it was like 40c and the other I was very sick. I've spectated at every other wed nite and raced on about 6 nites over the past 2yrs.

I usually get there at about 6:30pm and leave straight after the burnouts have finished (9:30pm).

Cool, thanks very much guys.

Hey Charlie for your GTStt theme, I have a GTSt horn button if you're keen. GTR one pops right out, swapover will take 2 seconds. Let me know. I'm not after cash, it's just sitting in my garage, may as well have someone get some use out of it :nyaanyaa: I can bring it to the next SAU Drag Day if you like.

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
    • Welcome to SAU, they really are more fun manual
