More track time works for me! Don't tell anyone lol

Squires will be supplying BBQ sustenance again though Ash won't be there so we'll need a new chef. How many people do we have so I can pick up enough supplies? Believe you have the BBQ Simon?

Bit quiet with a few days to go till final round. If I wimp out under the pressure, may be asking round for a lift down.

Car issues still touch and go?

Tony O will be coming down at like 10 or 11am with the BBQ gear and some drinks on ice in our nice new esky.

I'll bring a flag down in the morning :)

Everyone look out for the SAU VIC flag and gather around our area.

Do we want to get/share a garage to have as our sau home base?

Yeah grab an SAU garage. If you're there first, can you grab an additional garage either side for me?

All good Tony, will be meeting up with Ash later today or tomorrow morning to get the beef.

Most likely - no go

Should now be a go, rang at lunchtime and they were just ringing up Nissan sourcing a gasket I'd forgotten to give them - so I popped it round over lunch.

What's the process for garages at PI? Booking? Payments? etc... Do you need to ring up someone like Sandown?

You don't seem to be able to pre-book

When you get there you ring PI client services mobile (PM'd by the way)

they'll walk around unlock and request the $176 per day payment.

Good stuff John, as mentioned you're the only one that can beat Aaron to the overall win. Or you can both feel free to DNF and the prius can do a bradbury :)

Can you send over that PI number in the highly unlikely event that I get there first.

I've got it saved in my phone, will be leaving here at about 5:30am so will be there at 7 when the gates open. I'll aim for the same area we were at last time... about halfway along the 2nd section of garages.

Ripper day, not a big turn out. Bit strange the PIARC people ended the day a bit early, was hoping to get another session or 2 in but guess I'll just have to go back next month!

And plenty of track time was had :)

Until they called the day early because not that many people were out there at the end.

Here's mine, the GPS data sync isn't great but gives a good enough idea.


1:57.2759 on my usual AD08R's




1:55.4496 trying out a set of A050's. Needed a few more sessions to get used to them, was actually slower in a few places. But as Simon mentioned, they cut the day short because they wanted to go home early.

Good to see everyone having fun, loving the commitment shown, squealing tyres and love Dave's AO50s hum - reminds me of flying scenes in WW2 films.

I love this place, was running lower boost to avoid overheating issues but Nick from Lux Racing advised on anti dive improvements which are in the right direction as way more confident on turn in, hence big PB improvement.

I was not expecting that hum from the A050's, never used semi's before. The drive home was unpleasant to say the least. Will stick with the AD08R's for a while though, plenty more time in them.

John, how much work is involved in sync'ing the videos and data? I find racerender with just one video and the data a complete pain in the arse to line up.

Also, check out this site - https://serious-racing.com/

You can upload GPS data from various apps and loggers to compare 4 of your own laps or one against up to 4 other people. It's pretty cool. I'm on there as my username here (as is Aaron).

    • looking good mate keep up the good work i like following this thread.  
    • 20220120_204714.mp4     Hey guys, passenger door jammed shut on me, I managed to get the door card off in one piece and have a look in there but can't seem to find the problem. Ive tried using combos of using the key and holding the interior lock open, using both door handles and the central lock button. Ive tried pushing and pulling the door latch and lock rods manually The lock mechanism seems to turn and push the lever when I turn the key and everything looks to be in place. Cant for the life of me find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. If there is a manual way to open the door I haven't found it. Im guessing something inside the latch mechanism has gone bad but how can you get it out with the door jammed shut? 
    • There are literally dozens of aftermarket throttlebodies in DCOE carby format. The RB26 ITBs are so very very close to the DCOE bolt pattern that it is difficult to believe that Nissan came that close and didn't actually just use the DCOE pattern. Then, you can look at just about any EFI motorbike from Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, etc that used single throttles, in whatever size floats your boat. 45mm? 48mm? Larger? They're all out there. Just build manifold and plenum and linkages to suit. As for compression and cams - the larger the cam duration, the more compression you can run. Just sayin'. And as for cost for bottom end.....8500 rpm is well within the limits of the stock bottom end. Especially NA. It won't cost much to make it good for >9000. Just need some light pistons and some moderately strong rods and bolts. On the subject of VCT.....all RB25s have it (except for the very first ones in the R32). The vanilla 25s in the R33 era cars were all VCT. There's almost no difference in the VCT between vanilla and Neo engines. The difference between Neos and vanilla 25s is that the Neos have solid lifters, a different included angle in the valves with a shallow combustion chamber. And in the NAs.....not particularly good flowing ports. I would not write off the power potential of an L series vs an RB25DE though, neo or not. 2.8L & 3L (and larger) L series builds, even running Mikunis, have made really large power. There is nothing wrong with the single cam engines. The twin cams are not inherently a massive leap in power potential.
