1000 Steps Junkies

After bumping into Wanzi at the 1000 steps I thought I'd see who else is a regular there? I've seen a few skylines but it's hard to say hi when most of the time the owners are probably somewhere up the hill :). :)

Yesterday we managed to see 4 lyrebirds of which 3 were having a dispute over territory and having a sing off. Which ended in the adult chasing the kids down the steps right in front of us :blink: was fantastic to see.

And for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about -> http://www1.visitvictoria.com.au/displayOb...90000/vvt.vhtml

Funny that, I saw Wanzi's car there today too :D

I personally preferred the Wineglass Bay/Hazards Beach circuit in Tasmania (About 4 hours walk) as that has a good variation of up/down and different types of surfaces, so all the muscles received a workout instead of just burning up the front half of the quads.

used to do it alot in 06/07....tried again recently and yep they were every bit as nasty as i remember...LOL Still awesome tho.

Personally i recon a couple of goes at the steps shits on the wineglass bay journey, however the view at the top is beautiful...in saying that when the footy teams hit up the steps the view at the top isnt what I'd class as bad haha :D

hahaha, liking the sound of that :D

altho, its 5ks and takes 2 hours to walk? is that just cause of the layout/steepness of it?

2 hours must be when you're going really slowly and stopping every 10 steps to rest.

It's about 20 min from the carpark to the top of the steps, maybe another 10 to reach the one tree picnic ground, but I don't think many actually go there, most do laps of the steps

this the first i've heard of it, is it just a bunch of steps people walk up and down like Rocky ?

its the first part of a bush trail that is meant to be a kokoda simulation. the actual steps run for about 1.8km up mt dandy

Used to do it quite regularly, great way to get fit.

You'll always spot the over enthusiastic first timer that thunders up the steps at the start and ends up nearly dying from exhaustion not too far up.

I'm trying to do it fortnightly these days

i walked down that way once what a pain in the ass

Haha yeah it's too steep to safely run down and also quite steep to walk down since you are constantly fighting against slipping down. So it's a kind of crab walk diagonal to come down at any reasonable speed.

    • Is there a particular model of the box that is recommended and where are you sourcing it from? This has me pretty interested as well for my 1JZ (currently with the standard A343 box). Also very interested to see how the turbolamik TCU goes. Is Tuned Performance assisting with this too? 
    • I've never used or seen that kit. project mu have a serious reputation in braking but there is a lot of information missing from that listing like type and style of dogbone, is the disc solid or full floating to the hats etc. It also mentions they run '1 synchronised pad per piston' which sounds overly complex solution to a non-problem to me. Also no information on price or availability of replacement pads or rotor rings If I was looking for something that serious I'd go AP racing or perhaps Brembo as they have plenty of users and good availability, but in any case something like Just Jap ATTKD are proven and less than half the price (assuming that listing is USD)
    • does anyone have any experience with the project mu forged sports 4-piston kit for the GTRs? it's a front brake bolt-on kit, 355mm x 32mm forged aluminum 41mm piston 4 pads / caliper from my experience with the brand in the past, they make pretty solid stuff, so i figured this would be a nice upgrade for the R33. anyone here have experience with these? the site search didn't really yield any results, just posts about brake pads, mostly. cheers!
    • I vaguely remember there was something about it when I did my plates/subframe bushes but it might have just been a forum post I read. 
    • Now installed, fun times as the GKtech manual makes no mention of modifying the subframe brackets/brace plates. Needed to lop off the hump as the GKtech subframe bushes are flat and don't have an indent. Heaps of swearing later, it's in 🥳
