Best... Weekend... Ever

Well i was off to the coast (Batemans Bay) for a family christmas party on friday night, the trip was uneventful until around Braidwood when 3 new Holdens (SS ute, Commodore, Calais)came rocketing past me, SS ute with a fridge very slightly tied into his tray vertically. This didnt stop him travelling at 140+km around corners and overtaking cars though. You could see the fridge swaying each corner, it would of had to of slipped out at some point that trip. So they pull off into a petrol station and things go back to normal. Halfway down the clyde and they are back going extremely fast around the last few corners (still with fridge). I get overtaken just before the overtaking lane while rolling down the hill at about 116km. Up ahead i notice a police car pulling out, sirens going, and me and my sis start laughing, thinking its about time they got done... No it was me who was done... He pulls up behind me and i pull over to let him pass to chase after them but he pulls off behind me, walks up to me and asks me why i was going so fast. I couldnt even say anything... i asked him if he saw those other cars (they overtook me while i was going 116, so how fast were they going) but he looked around, smiled and said what cars... Told me i was 4 kms off losing my licence on the spot, says its the first day of holidays so thats double demerits.

Goodbye licence :P

Worst part is ive just moved out to murrambateman so im pretty f**ked when it comes to work...

Also i got back to Canberra and nearly crashed twice, both in erindale. 1 was a pink 33 who was spinning the wheels in a roundabout casuing a falcon to stop in the middle of the roundabout just infront of me.

Second was at the intersection near Mobil. I was turning into the street that goes past the college and this moron P-Plater in her commodore thought she had right of way and cut me off, nearly side swiping me.

I know I was speeding so its my own fault, but the fact 3 other cars going FASTER then me, one with a heavy object losely tied into his tray, get off free is what shits me. Ohwell, 1 less P-plater with a sports car on the road, 3 more bogans get away to kill your relatives.

Hey Baconer , I wouldn`t say good bye to your licence yet if it your first offence write a letter saying how sorry u are about a 80% u will get off , if they got u doing 116 they can only do u for <15km/h as the radar is accurate to +/- 2km/h

It was a 90 zone, about 1km from where it turns to 100 so its 26km over. 30+ means you lose your licence on the spot.

Yea i heard about that. If you get a fine in NSW and your licence is registered in ACT then theres a large chance you wont lose the points. Something about the systems not working well together. Fine is already paid for, heres hoping :X

Ring the RTA in the ACT and get a status check done. Other wise you can get into some serious shit if you are caught with no license.

Oh and by the way this is a public forum.....

Im not taking any further action with this. I was speeding, just dont agree with their prejudice

The other situation that i have heard about this is that if you have an ACT licence but

lose enough points while in NSW to lose your licence that you are only not allowed to drive in NSW.

Another loophole i guess

Was talking to a mate of mine about this and he asked a question im very worried about. If i lose my licence and have to go back onto P's, will the 'no turbo/ V8 for P-platers' law affect me?

As you already have owned the car and had the licence for said car pre your infringement,I'm 99.9% sure you can keep driving the performance vehicle;you may want to check the legalities of being pulled over later...you don't need the officer believing you're spinning him a yarn! Also check when the double points start in NSW. If it's after the date you were booked,and the officer in question has marked you down for double points incorrectly,you can get out of it...

There's my 2c worth.

    • 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:
