Not a bad day overall, only managed to beat my PB by 0.77 on the very last lap of the day. Seemed like the track was coming good towards the end as many of the best laps were that final session.

I'll be glad if I never hear another VTEC engine and no exhaust (seemed like it) at full song lol

Results don't list club so no idea who is who from SAU VIC. Just listing who I know...

We where scattered all over the place anyway.

Still a good day, just lacked the social aspect a little.

Lots of fun had on track esp when they combine group E and F (why I have no idea).

I just missed the airborn Pirus over the turn 10 exit curve.

Yeah - that last session was epic!

Really enjoyed following round the R33 (think the numberplates were JDM33), definitely quicker than me down the straights, but I was closing in under braking and probably about lineball around corners.

Weather was good, even if a little hot. Word for the day is VtechYo

My tyres were shot, so nothing but stuffing around and taking my uncle for laps... Was about a second off my normal pace, so wasn't much point pushing for times...

The last two session playing around with Richo was fun, I didn't get the gopro out all day, was a shame, because I spent a few laps there pissing myself laughing at some of the antics in the afternoon

Yeah wasn't quite the same, nothing like a free feed to get people together hehe

No airborne! Was being stupid and then remembered you lot were coming up fast, looked in the mirrors and it all went to shit lol. Think a few of us cut the grass over the day :)

Yo, nah Justin & Troy aren't members. Will do my best to convince them to join up though! Haha.

My RaceChrono tells me I did a couple of 1:45.1's, but I just couldn't manage a 44... next time!

I've seen posts indicating Calder has been dropped while PIARC round brought in, any chance to get the front page updated to clarify current plan.

Might also want to clarify if prior PI/Winton were a select round

That is what we discussed over pizza wasn't it?

Edit: You weren't at that meeting.....that would be why.

Yeah he wasn't there, he was 10mins away sitting on his couch.

But yeah - dropping 2 rounds... Maybe update the first post or something so it's clear for everyone

    • Hey I have a spare CAS unit if you wanted to borrow or buy
    • All issues mentioned are mitigated by running billet gears and a long nose crank. My question pertains more to the oil pump housing differences. I already have an RB25 pump housing I wanted to put billet pump gears in. I was wondering if there's any advantage if I purchase an N1 pump instead and put billet gears into that. Even stranger is I found a link (One in OP) that states the RB25 pump housing is actually preferable which I'm wondering why.   Thanks
    • In the middle of the rb25 upgrade on the rb20. Its actually a Arashi bolt on. Its in and lined up perfect First question is can I use a standard hose as my oil return line? New turbo fitting is shorter and having to  change the line/hose The oil supply/intake hose has a smaller hole than stock. Not sure I should go back with the old one   Any other tips would be appreciated   
    • So just to update: I changed the brushes over and polished the commutator using a 1500 grit sanding sponge; it was super easy to polish being copper. A power tool wasn't necessary, although could have made it easier if you have the finesse to use it well.     Yet this was to no avail, the motor worked as it did before, stop, start, stop start, etc. Today I went to my mechanic's shop to do a few things. I showed him the motor and asked in broken Japanese "who can fix this?", he took it from me and had a crack, was able to fix it-ish. From what I could understand (which is very little), the problem with the motor was with the clutch disc located amongst the gears, I saw it whilst he was working but couldn't identify any issues. I say he fixed it-ish, because now the motor will run continuously when free from the rack, which is great. But once I had reinstalled it, the tilt function would work but the sliding function sounded off, like the motor was under more load than before and the motor was struggling. We're going to pull apart the rack in the new year and see what we can find.  Hopefully this is of some help to others that get sunroof motor issues with their R34, S15 Silvia, or highly unlikely the Z10 cube. I will update this when more progress is made.
    • AFAIK in the RB26 section of the service manual it explicitly says not to take apart the AAC valve. If you took it apart once there's no harm in taking it apart again to see if you can save it.
