Parallel Parking

I was under the impression that to get a licence (at least in Vic), you had to be able to parallel park. Why then did some dufus (on Ps) ask me to park his car today while I was working out front of a police station!?

i dont remember i was stoned when i got mine.

What i do remember though is failing twice

1. Not coming to a "complete" stop at a stop sign = instant fail would of passed otherwise

2. Sitting at red traffic light apparently a green arrow was up for what must of been a microsecond cause i didnt see it and again instant fail..

the stupid thing is despite me driving for over 5 years without a licence and without incident they saw me as unfit to drive... Fuggin rules ay! Cant live with em cant live without em :laugh:

Everyone freaks about the parallel park but my instructor told me they have to give you a huge amount of room to perform it. Makes it quite easy. I actually found my 3 point turn more difficult because the tester made me do it in the narrowest alley he could find.

iirc from when i did mine and what my instructor told me back then; they would like you to reverse parallel; but if they can't find a good spot they tell you to 3 point turn.

but for the reverse parallel; you've only got to park behind one car; and you get 7metres or so that you can reverse behind it, LOL.

and four gear changes. so you can reverse, forward, reverse, and forward again if you need to i think. so no dramas :P.

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
