Handbrake's R35 Build Part 2

Recommended Posts

i couldn't do it. I went 3 months without driving my 31 and almost died. I've just had an image pop into my head of you going into the workshop and caressing the car and whispering to it while no one is watching. haha.

thanks Drew. yeah very exciting to see it come together

the only piece we are leaving as stock is the rear fenders, are you going carbon widebody rear also or is it still secret squirrel?

cant wait to get both of our cars out on the track at QR!

are you thinking you guys will make it out to the Ruzic practice day at QR on the 7th of July?

yeah the rear will be carbon widebody too. What I cant wait for is 2 35's screaming past a certain radical sr8 haha.

Doubt I will make July 7.. the next one that I might make is the Nissan day towards the end of July.

It would be a shame to miss out on that one.

Really is something special! :)

I can only imagine the amount of bodies swarming over all different parts of this car, all around Brisbane, in an effort to get this car going STAT!

exhaust ports before/after



intake ports before/after



oh wow!!

porting work looks ace

definately one hell of a weapon (once running)

still think you're crazy to outsource the driving, dont see any point in that whatsoever IMHO

should be all you and only you!!!

What's the before and after flow figures on the heads? Is there any inconsistancy with chamber volumes when they cc'd them?



sorry Marty, dont have that info for you yet

a lot of work to get the uprights from the chassis to this point.

need to be sturdy, as we have quite a large dual element rear wing being made up currently which should generate between 160-200kg of downforce

    • I 100% agree that another intake setup would be better performing but I like the uniqueness it brings to the build. I am not paying someone to do the fabrication and this has become something I want to figure out. Call me stubborn for being sold a "bolt-on" adapter plate. The waterjet has been down so it was quicker to machine them. I had one of my machinists at work (who is enthusiastic about making car parts) to give me a hand over the weekend. We started with .75" scrap we had kicking around and profiled out the shape.  I transferred over the studs from the balance tube for a test fit. There is a slight interference caused by the distance between the top and bottom studs being off by .75mm. Not a huge deal as the split pins which locate the throttle bodies are on the bottom holes and they fit perfect. I just oversized the top holes on the ITBs to accommodate my stupid error in measurement You can see the difference in the ITB spacing vs the OEM RB20DET runner spacing here. The plan is to fill it with weld on the inside and weld on the outside as well. I can then smooth out the transition.  -Jordie 
    • You could add a larger reservoir to the heat exchanger circuit so can add ice when at the track. Where I was working at the time found adding a watertank/reservoir in boot of blown cars helped massively, less expensive than an interchiller kit but lost spare wheel well. Cars could do back to back runs with more consistant IATs. I fitted an interchiller and 4.9L whipple to a LS at a shop I was at and IATs were never a problem. 
    • Dont forget rotational mass weight saving is 3 to 1 also   But yes theoretically good, strong , light wheels for sure but also ive still buckles "best jap wheels" and sigh The overall combo youre building is strong 💪
    • Yeah, I'm gonna hit him up for some closeup photos of the journals/caps. Its at a decent price, especially since it has all the required parts for a complete cylinder head, minus the passenger rocker cover 🙃 I thought the same regarding the head not having oil. Its a camshaft, not a crankshaft? Surely the forces would be small enough that they couldn't do that much damage...
