NULON NATIONALS - ROUND 3 - DRAG BATTLE

Corporate-Logo-White-background-national

Ok guys, for those of you that are unaware SAU has been competing in the 3 round club vs club challenge that Nulon has been kind enough to put on for us. Nulon has been looking after car clubs by not only running these events but also sponsoring each driver with the entry fees, merchanidise and even their product. The rounds consisted of -

Hillclimb - Buladelah

Track battle - Wakefield Park

Drag battle - Cootamundra Airport

If you have attended one of the previous events or are planning on spectating at this event (details at the bottom of this thread) please make sure you thank the Nulon team for allowing our club to be a part of this awesome event, also keep an eye out for the man that made all this happen "Chris Dawe" and make sure you buy him a beer to say thanks!

Head over too - http://www.nulon.com.au/ or give them a like on Facebook!!!

SAU has attended the first 2 events so far and are currently sitting in second place on the overall points score -

1st place : Evolution Oz - 364 - points
2nd Place: Skylines Australia SAU - NSW - 322 points
3rd Place: BYP Racing and Developments - 288 points
4th Place: HSV Owners Club -237 Points
5th Place : MX-5 Club of NSW - 212 Points
6th Place: Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ Drivers Club - 209 Points
7th Place: Australian Ford Forums - 87 Points
Unfortunately for us we had bad weather at the hillclimb and not many runs so we came out 6th at that event, we clawed our way back to second after taking out the round win at Wakefield Park. Now it is time for the 3rd and final round and with double points on the table we figured we better step it up a notch.
With the removal of the rule where cars had to back up after the previous round we decided to send down a dedicated team of some of the toughest Nissans we have to offer, with the help of our Team Captain for this round Kat (GTRkat) we present the following team members -

    • 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.
