Sau Vic 2014 Motorsport Championship Round 4 - Winton Saturday 17Th May


Recommended Posts

Committee has discussed the current entry situation and everyone should be aware that we expected approx 110 entries on the day. We did discuss removing this event from the MS calendar and replacing it with another in June. However it was agreed this would be too disrupting to everyone making plans for this event.

We still plan to have a sit down discussion with WRX and talk through the issues that everyone has communitacted to us. All being well, we're hoping to be able to do that before the this event.

Hoping to get along to watch & help out if needed - just not sure if I'll make it yet.

Would have loved to enter, but I was there in the Golf last Saturday for the Tampered day

In, interested to see how this one goes.

just noticed WRX are running emergency entries?

Basically if 20 spaces allocated to a group don't get filled, then the emergency entries get to sip in prior to "the off" to fill the 20 car allocation for that session.

Getting better by the minute.

I've stocked up on Jerry cans so it's a non stop drive up in the morning for me, so I'll try and get there pretty early so I can reserve a few more together, pretty hard for one person to reserve 5-6 bays.

    • 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.
