fellow skyline owners going to the nats

i've entered my gtr in the nats, but that's not what this post is about.

on my entry form there was a little write up it goes sumthing like this.

THE MESSAGE FROM THE NSW POLICE AND RTA

They WILL conduct random vehicle inspections, targeting summernats entrant vehicles and spectator vehicles travelling to and around the summernats. Ensure you're vehicle is roadworthy and you carry ALL the required compliance papers. Drive safely and carefully at all times.

so what i was thinking is people post up here if they see any 'vehicle inspection stations' around canberra, so that people can avoid them, if they think their car is 'unroadworthy'

**UPDATE** There has been reports that there is heavy police/RTA along the highway going to canberra before natex, and the way into/before barton highway.

hope that helps, and see you at the nats.

Hi - yep - see my Post over in General

A friend who works just over the border at Eaglehawk contacted me earlier after they got back into Canberra.

Said that they had never seen so many police cars in one spot - about 30- 40 ---

XR8s, SSs, marked and unmarked pursuit cars-

One lane of Fed Highway closed down just at border - speed limit goes from 110/80/60/40 within secs

cops absol everywhere----------

Also about 5-10 cars cruising Barton Highway as well

    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
