Hi Guys,

As this section is taking off, why don't I offer to make some webspace to use with the cefirosaustralia.com and .net domains? If you guys choose somebody to be the admin dude, we can setup a portal and links to these forums etc. Let me know what you think, it'' be pretty straight forward.

I sent an email about this a while back.

Good idea. I mainly want a tech section with all the guides from engine to tail lights.

So will this section link to the site or whats the go?

things happen at 1/2 pace here on SAU... lol hang on while we sort out SAU first :)

Atm, its just looking like a front end for this section, so the forums itself will remain unmodified (same mods etc) but with a nicer front page when you go to www.cefirosaustralia.com

Since its only A31's, C32's and Y32's atm (unless you guys wanna include FWD maxima drivers with A32's and A33's) its quite limited on what we can put on the front page.

If you guys can brainstorm on what you'd like to see on a sorta front page (like the one you get when you go to SAU's front page) then we can get started on implementing it, and then getting a couple of you guys to update/maintain it regularly.

If it is only going to be a front end then I think this forum should be a bit more organised. I mean its a "lets put everything in the one section" forum atm.

Definetly needs to be an article sub-forum for all those 4 door specific item. And a member ride section, then perhaps the other crap that anyone wants to post.

My 2c :rofl:

    • We don’t build cars in stages, that’s a euro thing. Look up maatouks racing on Facebook because if you go to them they’ll guarantee you 1500hp.
    • Found an hour free from the kid & wife, decided that I needed to have a selectable rev limter for skid pans (which I go here and there). Knowing a high RPM on a wet skid pan will just result in too much wheel speed, having a selectable mang mang limiter essentially will limit the wheel speed when I'm bashing 2nd gear   1x can button, 4x limiters: 7000 rpm 7500 rpm 8000 rpm 8600 rpm  
    • But, the reason I remembered this thread was I had to change the rear pads yesterday, and jeebus how hard did they make it. Clearly nissan US engineers are not the same as nissan Japan's people. Apparently they had issues with pads falling out of the rear brakes in the very early models, so this is the "improved" version.  They are a large single piston design, here is the devil's spawn   You can see the pads have 2 tabs to hold them into the mounting bracket at the bottom And at the top there is a large spring clip that stops them sliding out. To change the rear pads: 1. Undo the top mounting bolt for the calliper cylinder 2. Undo the lower mounting bolt as well. That's right, you can't just leave one bolt in place and let the calliper rotate outwards to hold it while you change the pads, the whole thing has to come off the hub. Note, the pads stay in place in the calliper, because.... 3. The outer pad is held to the calliper by a spring clip on the back of the pad, and 2 tabs on the front which go into 2 holes cast into the housing You can see the channel for the tabs at the top, the only way to pull the pad out is upwards and out. This is the outer rear pad once removed 4. OK, that was the easy one. The inside pad is also held in place by spring clips.  In my case I was putting 50% worn spare pads back in while I wait for new ones from the US, but it is not possible to just slide the pad out, the piston needs to be pushed back 100% to allow the spring clips on the back of the pad to clear the piston 5. Happily, at least the rear disc just slides off the hub then, no bearings etc to deal with Reinstallation is just as painful as removal, as once the pads are in the calliper, you need to slip the lower pad tabs over the mounting bracket, then tap the calliper back into place while not mashing the dust covers of the mounting bolts. All that for a solid (not vented!) 14mm x 320mm disc, and tiny pads. Because it's a big vehicle and a single piston design, the pads don't wear evenly by literally mm across the surface That was a hell of a lot of work for a very crap design.
    • So, it's been a really long time since I updated this thread. (like, 5 years long time). The Titan is going great, we've put about 120,000klm on it, and other than having to replace the radiator because it was running hot when towing, there have been no real problems.  It has been used pretty hard between towing and going everywhere, lots of dirt/off road driving.  Get very bogged once at the back of our property, but to be fair we also managed to bog our patrol trying to get it out so it was pretty bad (managed to winch them both out in the end). Those fancy steps are also broken because the pins in both sides seized and the manufacturer won't answer re spare parts. Overall it is doing well, plenty of people space in the king cab, and still a good load space with a full size bed. The folding cover over the rear is great, closes things up most of the time but can open as much as required for taller or longer loads.   Towing is going great as well, it is very stable and has plenty of power. It still sucks to park in regular spaces, but living outside the city that is not such a big deal, we just pick our spots.
