This Section Needs Help


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

With the new section, its looking a bit bare, best thing to brighten it up are good useful sticky threads :)

If someone has an idea, post here or PM me.

I was thinking if someone can post up formula's to workout diff ratios and things like that... would be very handy for a sticky.

You'll be credited with the information of course and all that :D

Throw ideas out there

um. To figure out any gear ratio the formula is: the number of teeth on the driven gear (crown wheel) divided by the number of teeth on the driving gear (pinion) eg: crown wheel 20 teeth, pinion 10....

SO 20 divided by 10 = a ratio of 2:1... easy.

Is it possible to get a sticky thread made up about 33 boxes into 32's. So many people still cant use the search function. I know there are a few good threads about the conversion maybe they can be put into one thread?

I think a sticky on gearbox identification would be awesome, like being able to tell by the webbing on the housing/dimensions/weight/any numbers stamped on box, gear diagrams, 1piece/3piece syncros stuff like that :)

    • 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.
