Off friday to GP


Recommended Posts

This Friday we head off to Shepparton for our third run in the Grand Prix Rally. The event starts on saturday morning and finishes Wednesday in ST Kilda.

The cars are parked in the GP grounds From Thursday to sunday and my car (41) has my name on the rear windows and No plate is DAD 8 IT. SO if you see me say hello. (short fat bald bloke)

We get to do a parade lap about lunchtime on Friday on the Formula 1 race track and Ill write a little report for those interested when I return.

Unfortunately we leave on Saturday morning to come back home due to personal commitments, so we wont get to see the F1 race.

Should be a few nice skylines down there as the GP Rally has been won by a skyline for the last two years.

This is the official site of the rally so you can see how things go.


No I am not taking the skyline as I cant afford to have a crew vehicle following us carrying the spare etc. (Bloody skyline boots)

What sort of car is it? I'll have a look for it...but it will most likely be Sat or Sun (after you've gone), so won't be able to say hello ;)

Good luck btw! :headspin:

    • 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
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
