Just driving back from seeing a doctor, copper turned onto the road i was on, then merged his way into behind me, and flashed his lights on.

Came to the car and picked the first thing that stood out which was "the car looks a little low"

10mm on the rear too low and 30mm too low on the front.

If he has to go over the pits, they will know

exactly. Im planning to go over once, so im returning the driveline and everything to stock as possible.

edit/ the cop actually commented on how clean the car was with no leaks, and bushes are all good...

aw man that sux i also would of though the RB25 gearbox would of been ok

but i guess you might know better

The 25t box would be ok but one needs to find a factory gearbox crossmember and mount that bolts up to the rb25 box + R32 combo.

Unsure if a GTR/GTS4 cross member will bolt up. Some have said the Auto crossmember bolts up.

Then there's the single piece tail shaft. :(

was actually along the road that goes down to hallet cove along the 80km/h section. had to pull into the hungry jacks car park.

Only if your car was an auto gtst will a std cross member bolt in to make it look origional.

Looks like i can do all the swapsies with Cubes :(

no circlework with the Nismo diff either cubes :(

Bugger that's right near where I live. Will have to keep an eye out for that d#@$ head.

I thought the rule was for the ride height to be legal the car only had to clear the ground by 10cm. Doesn't sound like you're anywhere near that low, though 30mm on the front would be down a bit I guess, but not rediculously so. Glad I haven't lowered mine.

I want a Madaz Grandma :(

Jazza,

There's a few different measurements it needs to pass not to be considered too low.

1. The R32 GTST must be no lower than 360mm all round.

2. The lowest part of the car must have 100mm ground clearance.

3. Some measurement of the headlight to ground height.

Number 3 is ignored as some factory cars are released with a headlight level that is too low. Some honda's from memory.

So 1 & 2 are the ones to look out for.

Just to note... My stock suspensioned R32 GTST measures ~365mm all around.

So the 360mm measurement means you cannot run lowered suspension. I'm assuming they have a slightly lower height to allow for some suspension sag, possible differences in manufacturing and or a full tank of juice.

    • 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:
