[WA] RB28 T

Now we are coming to the conclusion of the build I thought I would chuck up a build thread of the overhaul of my R32 GTR completed by Galvsport in Perth, WA. If you haven’t heard of them I suggest you check them out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/#!/Galvsport or the net http://www.galvsport.com/ really taking it to the next level for GTR’s and motorsport builds over here in WA.

Essentially I had a R32 GTST with a RB25 in it to compete in local motorsport, usual bolt ons etc delivering 375whp and this kept me happy for a brief period of time before the GTR bug bit, due to the plan from the get go being a built motor I found an example with a quality suspension and brake package with a popped motor and dropped it off to galvsport.

While awaiting its turn for Galvsport to start work, I had a Brad Stacey Weld in cage fitted, with the rear seat delete re-trim performed in house at Galvsport.

Also had the front dash and a few other interior bits and pieces flocked

Dropped, stripped, powder coates front and rear sub frame and re fitted with the Ikeya Formula gear that came with the car on the rear end, and Nismo gear for the front end.

Had the bay re-sprayed and a few other bits and pieces tidied up on the body

I fail at getting pictures on SAU so as oppose to linked into the thread they are down the bottom.

for the time being i will just keep it as it is, it has been nearly 2 years in the build and i want to enjoy it a bit and lay down some lap times. Maybe towards the end of the year look at doing some big boy alcon brakes and aftermarket diff setup. also needs a respray is currently 50 shades of grey.

swapped for XT7s

This thing looks unreal! Keep us posted with how she goes on the track.

The March 5th, this Thursday, 9am to 4pm
Just needs cams license, If you never been to a tuning day, its very relaxed, and you go out when road cars are called.

No pressure, just a all day testing of your car, i believe its 30 minute sessions ( i forget ) and you get about 5 or so.

You can go out for 1 lap, comin, change stuff, then go straight back out again, one of the easiest track days you can goto.
No timing gear, so use ur phone.

"late response"

 

Essentially I got some decent laps in up until September last year, when I moved overseas for work, and sold everything but the car. However, have recently sent it back into galvsport to prepare it for Racewars 2017.

Cliff Notes:-

> Holinger Sequential

> new tune and will lean on it a touch harder for 8,250rpm as oppose to 7,500 running last year.

> will get it wrapped

> fit up the new wheels with fresh rubber for the event

> sort out the 4wd gremlin

> Rebuild the shocks which were starting to let go towards end of last year.

 

hoping to get a few days at rac and barbs in while back in Perth!

Was just taking a trip down memory lane and researching bits and pieces for the next stage. 

 

Racewars is done and dusted and back over seas, got the HKS livery done and a few tweaks nothing too major.

Next stage really consists of prep for RW18 (nothing major), overhauling the interior (all the dry carbon) and prepping to for export to the UK (where i am currently living) 

Livery is coming off, basically going to All Black. 

 

Watch this space

Well seems I don't pay too much attention to SAU as of late. 

 

Racewars 18 was run with a big improvement over last year thanks to a retune from WA Racing Developments. 

and the HKS was removed in favour of some fresh panel and paint, with new rims to follow.  Thanks to Panelhaus in Canningvale for the so far top job, should be off to Madinc in the near future to protect the paint and I might get to drive it this year.
