The widened front and rear bodywork look great!!

Very interested to hear what the TTI box goes like.

Cheers for the feedback.

I have only had a a handful of laps and so far the box is nice to drive. I am still tuning my flatshift setup so there is a still a few timing issues but that has nothing to do wit the box. Being the sequential I have driven I have no commparrison butt he first thing i noticed is you have to put more effort into pulling the lever going up the gears. Going down is way nicer and easier than I thought it would be.

3 days before load up day the did not have an engine in it. With a few late nights we got the new engine in, onto the dyno and few loose ends fixed up. The next day it was loaded onto the trailer and then the truck for it's journey to Bathurst.

The truck leaves on Saturday and I leave on Tuesday.

This is a child hood dream coming true to be able to drive Bathurst in anger.

I am in garage 20.

The other 2 Skylines that I am travelling with are in the garages either side of me.

I look forward to meeting you.

It has been a while since the last update.

Bathurst was an experience and a half. It was much more fun and challenging than I gave it credit for. We did ok especially as this was more of a shakedown session for both the car and myself. I started at the back of the grid in 53rd place and finished the weekend in 27th with a PB of 2.35.8533. there was heaps more in across the top and I was running out of revs down Conrod.

The videos are here:

Race 1:- https://youtu.be/T4IP9x53Pcw

Race 2:- https://youtu.be/SalKIfMcw5Y

Race 3:- https://youtu.be/v63wPakgZjc

 

Then we came back to Perth and went to our first home round and blew the 3.7 ratio diff.

We swapped a spare 4.1 ratio diff and went to the next round. We were running out of revs down the back staright as well, oh well close ratio gear box life! i also had a TPS problem so we were either stalling on the start or spinning the wheels.

Qualifying:- https://youtu.be/9YeDqea2Vdo

Race 2:- https://youtu.be/nRHX_yOvpys

Race 3:- https://youtu.be/eNXmWk0tvFM

 

So now we are in the process of fitting a 3.5 ratio diff fro a 350Z into the subframe using the Gkteck offset bushes and standard 350Z drive shafts. The fit of these will be sorted in the next week or so. With the wider rear track we are hoping that the standard 350Z shafts fit nicely.

Watched Bathurst race 2 - fairly busy there!

 Car looked to run well, no obvious vices just running out of revs.  Going up Mountain Straight too?

What calculated road speed?

Cheers, race 2 was very busy. The first time behind the wheel for 3 years, the first time at Bathurst and the first time with this car configuration!

We only had 2 issues all weekend, we overfilled the dry sump tank so our fault which spewed some oil out the back of the car as the catch can over filled and later we found that the driveshaft bolts had loosened off.

 

Calculated top speed was 238 KM/H.
