Anyone Coming Back To Australia Soon'ish? (from Japan)


Recommended Posts

hey y'all

just wondering if anyone is coming back to Australia any time soon? Specifically melbourne?

I have a hair brain scheme that involves some body kit parts and some "excess baggage" for someone to fly back with :laugh:

will make it worth your while.

i'd rate your chances as slim, and next to none.

i'll be travelling tokyo-syd in late january. and would happily do it for ~$1800 + any costs.

seriously, it's far smarter and economical to ship stuff that big.

the place i'm getting the body kit from, the owner did a japan-sydney flight with a full body kit. cost him 30,000 yen.

otherwise it will cost around $1500 aud to ship it, compared to about $350-500 excess baggage costs.

it's been done before, just wondering if anyone is keen

EDIT: also can organise for packaged to meet person at airport to check in for the flight, and organise for it to be picked up at oz airport.

i think because their "shipping" options, go via Air. 100,000 - 150,000 yen.

But even when i asked one of the traders, slidewize or something, who would be using a container, the price ended up the same. so i don't know...

all i know that if someone is willing, it can work out a heap cheaper to do excess baggage.

I think the fact that it's not really weight, but how much space it takes up is the problem, volumetric price.

It would be rear bumper, and side skirts, plus extra bits to fit to the side skirts and rear bumper

    • Atessa will work the same as it’s operated by a different ECU. If you want to use one so it can be RWD only I’m not sure that will work and if it is what you want then using a GTST or GTT gearbox would be a cheaper and easier tho v to use. You can just use the AWD gearbox and leave out the shaft that goes from the transfer case to the front diff for full time RWD. Changing the ecu and wiring just so you can use a nistune? There are better options out there that are plug and play to your existing harness connector and they should all work if you are running a manual instead of an auto. 
    • @GTSBoy just to make sure everyone is on the same page: OP is doing the manual conversion on their S1 Stagea
    • hey guys i have a 1996 r33 gts-4 and i assume the last owner has been playing with the horn and it’s not working i’m not too sure why the horn pad feels almost springy and feels like it doesn’t sit right is there anything else i would need to tighten apart from the two bolts on the side and or plug in? here’s a video of what it looks like 67842678749__9E03EA58-0C80-4CDB-83EE-5BE6F2D07AC4.MOV
    • The racelogic is one of those things (along with an Accusump) which blows my mind how they don't have wider adoption. They are simple and have massive, massive, massive effects and if you're even remotely interested in driving a car hard, you'll smack your head for not doing sooner. Disappearing in need now as cars get newer and TC technology in OEM's is obviously very competent, but you'll look back at all the years of high powered RWD cars and be like "wtf why only now"
