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).

    • 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.
