Hey Guys From Sunshine Coast

Hey guys

Ossie_21 (Nathan) and myself have pretty much had it with this place and have decided to take a mini-cruise home in both our Skylines.

So we're driving from Coolum Beach in Queensland (Sunshine Coast) to Perth.

We'll be leaving some time towards the end of December this year.

Anyone know of anyone to have done something this stupid in similar type cars? :P

Anyways, I'll be periodically updating this thread from various parts of Australia. I have scheduled in 3-4 rest stops and the whole trip should take 4 or 5 days. Depends on how much driving we feel up to. Anyways, wish us luck and hopefully in a couple weeks and I'll post a few pictures of the two skylines covered in dust and insects in some random spots in Australia.

Cheers,

Shayde

My skyline has 315hp at 12psi and Nathan's has like 390hp at 20psi.

He'll be driving low boost (14psi) and I'll probably take the 10psi option. Or just leave in on 12. Decisions, decisions..

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
