Kids Race Day 06, Op


OZ GTR34
 Share

Recommended Posts

All,

Last year I assisted the Nissan club by driving some young and underprivelaged kids around Oran Park North cct for a few hours. THIS IS NOT A TRACK DAY! You will be driving kids as young as 5 around the track and limited to 80-100Km/hr.

If you are able to assist, please PM me and I will send you the entry form and sup regs.

Please see the below link for more detail.

Thanks

so do you actually need to have a cams licence? or can you get a day licence?

I haven't really researched into the way cams licencing works.

No one day cams licence will be available for the day, again this is not a race day so there will be no CMAS officials available. If you dont have the L2S book you cant drive. Sorry

I will be marshalling for half the day, and driving for the other half.

Given my lack of turbo, I'll probably drive in the afternoon where the heat won't affect my car as much.

Look forward to marshalling for you again. :laugh:

OK,

Looks like its just me and possibly Steve, my work mate with the white WRX wagon. Pitty we could not get more people involved.

Thanks anyway Oz

Paul I followed the link and read the information, it sounded to me as if they head to many cars last year and "marshalling was a problem".

I would love to do something for the kids but tell me from your experience, would I just be getting in the way. (you know I get uncomfortable in crowds unless I'm p155ed and there is a live rock band)

Perhaps on the South Circuit, where the race cars and the bigger street cars (like the Lamborghinis) were running, but I was marshalling at the North Circuit, where the street cars ran, and we ran like clockwork. There was a pretty good turnout of cars. Not massive, but at the same time we didn't have people queuing half way back past the dirt course either.

Paul's GT-R was pretty popular with the kids if I remember correctly (The Wiggles in the CD player notwithstanding), as was the Ferrari 360 Spyder F1 that also ran for a half a day.

Liz, if you want to do some non-car related assistance we'd really appreciate it as well. I realise its not as glamourous as driving, but every little bit helps. Even helping to load and unload some of the kids from the car, given that some are movement impaired, would be really helpful. Otherwise, come do some flagging.

Bonkers,

Last year I turned up and drove about 20-30 Kids round the nth cct, 3 laps each time. Had to go by 12pm to take Bailey home who was still on 1 yr old. Felt like I did my bit, so please turn up, as I have had no feedback on numbers. Worst case we have a couple of beers and head home early. Call me to discuss if needed.

    • Your stuff look much better than the original stuff I used on my tri-y headers, which didn't survive the swap, that did work OK though, but currently the headers are only ceramic coating, which, while it is meant to be the bees knees, it really only reduces temps by "not alot" and is more for protecting the mild steel pipes The new stuff is meant to maintain an "air gap" which "apparently" helps the insulation LOL In other news I'm taking it into Autotech next week for them to have a look at the RaceTCS, the spot where I want it, and the program "thingie" that is on my lap top computa which you would know as it is basically the same thing as your Racelogic  I'm really keen to get this fitted  
    • OK, a couple of questions arise. Are you suggesting that you want to swap to the S2 ECU so that you can Nistune it? Because....none of the R33 ECUs can be Nistuned. What would an ATESSA controller do to help? You have no ATESSA. Beyond that, the S1 and S2 ECU pinouts are nearly identical, as far as I can remember. A quick look around on SAU yields the following for S1. As I said, almost all of it is identical. I think there might be a few changes around the AFM and the ECCS relay, not much else. There's not functionally anything particularly different between a manual and auto ECU pinout. Can run a manual engine on an auto ECU quite trivially, for example.
    • Hey guys Was recently replacing the water pump and timing belt. Came across one of the washers for the timing gear and balancer were bent. Just wondering how that would of happened
    • Recently destroyed the front driver ABS wheel speed sensor on my ENR34 due to the iron knuckle rusting and seizing the sensor head. The other one on the passenger side has been soaking in penetrant for a few days, but I fully expect the same thing to occur. The wheel speed sensors seem to be specific to the AWD applications, and likewise the more readily available units from ER34s and S/Z chassis are not the same. An OEM unit seems to be available at $200 USD/ea, which is not ideal, but still fine. But if I'm in this boat in the future, those might not be available.   Does anyone know of any wheel speed sensor that uses the same head as the R34 GTR that could be used? Not overly concerned with cable lengths as wiring will be redone to accommodate PMU wiring.
    • Isn't this at least partially due to the way the dyno run was done? I'm used to seeing runs where they start as low as 1500 rpm to see how boost develops over the 2000-3000 rpm range. Seeing the torque curve fall on its face by 6000 RPM similar to this chart gives me some confidence that this run wasn't just entirely make-believe:
