Sau Motorsport Round 1 Phillip Island


FINER6
 Share

Recommended Posts

had a look under the bonnet and everything was intact, but looked like fuel had run amok somehow. was covering the front intercooler piping near the headers. So i reckon fuel + heat. Very lucky no ignition. It was on E85, so didnt smell like petrol or oil, perhaps makes a different smoke.

Was a great day to kick the new year off going around in circles :yes:

The heat kept me from setting a PB, but still managed to have a couple of exciting moments...

PS. the noise on my videos from tyre squeal gets me giggling like a school girl.

Another awesome event! Lucky there was a nice sea breeze cos it was hot out there!!

Great video FINER6 of the Evo! We were walking to the pits and all of a sudden saw the Evo's massive plume of smoke! Wish we had a photo of it but was too in awe of what was going on! haha

A few of our photos from the event. We've posted a short writeup too http://www.circuitthreads.com/wrx-sau-round-1-phillip-island/

Hope to make the next round!

Some nice photos in there. Noticed a few photographers in various spots, love to see some more around the track.

In car and data of my PB and FTD.

Really liked your 86! the colour looks really nice with the sun shining off it!

Managed to get down to turn 1 and planned to see how far we could get around the track....but then got told off by the marshalls!

Artz and I were sitting in that "spectators" section as well and got told off. AND got told off for watching from where the cars enter back to pits

Funny bunch they are. If it makes you feel any better scrutineering gave me a hard time over my velo harness for being FIA and SFI certified, then tried to tell me that it wasn't possible and must be fake or mismatched set.

Something for the SAU committee but what about hiring a garage at these events for the club?

Few people usually get them to get out of the weather so instead maybe get one as SAU for all the club members to gather and shoot the breeze between sessions?

    • 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.
