Space Saver Tyres

Recommended Posts

So i scored myself a screw in my semi's lastnite.

and went to put on my space saver. which leads to a shit sound and slight jerky driving. i take it off after about 10km to next servo where i buy that foam crap. which in the end doesnt work too well as i have more problem than just a screw, i couldnt put space saver on front as i thought it would cause similar problem to front diff

question bieng would have i scored any damage to diff? i thought it would be better to f**k a rear diff than the front. if it was to happen!

isnt it better to slap it on the rear of a 4wd car rather than the front?

One of the guys in Adelaide i think shagged a front diff doing this...

thats what i did. put it on the rear.

tho now thinking about it all.

i probably could have put it on the front and removed the fuse for the attessa system

yes, that is what I would do. but in reality it's never going to be good no matter where you put it.

that foam shit is a very bad idea. it can clog and destroy your valve, and it can be a bitch to clean off everything. and to top it off it doesn't always work.

i don't think you would have busted the diff by just driving 10 km. I'd imagine that since you noticed it driving weird, you would have been going slow? If so, the diff would probably be ok (since it tries to match speeds of the wheels, if 1 wheel is going 30km/h, and the other is going 29, that's not as bad as one going 150 and the other going 130).

    • I still have Garrett parts to build GTX2860 if interested. 
    • I reckon coilpacks too. Mine went at exactly 100,000kms
    • In the process of riding up my car lol, am trying to get a decent looking oil cap. Some say they are fine to fit all RBs or even all Nissan, others like a stock GTR oil cap say rb20/25/26 but they won't fit a neo rb25. Is this due to the stock plastic engine cover or is there something else different?
    • Well Coolant pressure increased significantly under + boost.  Enough to bypass rad cap Coolant pressure normal under low load conditions and no overheating. Head off and you can see where it was bypassing the cylinder ring to coolant chamber on both head and gasket. Head cracked tested and serviced, all good. Block was only visually inspected, so please god ...  let that be ok   You could argue that is a Head gasket failure but it was still very much a complete unbroken gasket. So suggests some stretch on the factory head bolts. I know others that have had the same as above and not even taken the head off, just put in studs and  continued on for years.  
    • Just jumping into this one, someone's decided to try get into my 34 by bending that top door window trim back.  Anyone know how to remove these? Going to try and bend it back properly and sikaflex it... Cheers
