Was good to get to my first SAU track day (other than the nats years ago) & see what it's all about. Had a great day. Looking forward to the 16th at sandown! Thanks ash for the steaks & skewers.

I'm OS for two weeks in August. Going to miss next round at Sandown, but i'm not really sure what going on there in any case? Was PI a round? and what about that 3 track challenge thingy?

Can't say I was really happy with the PI WRX day, wet weather, then an hour of touring and passenger laps, then lunch, then porsche on its roof, meant I got a total of 11 full laps, 1.5 laps at any actual speed. The itch certainly didn't get scratched :(

Collins mentioned making PI an official round since everyone was there but I haven't heard from him about it so haven't bothered to update the spreadsheet.

    • 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.
