NEO motors are machines, you'll have a reliable 400rwkW on E85 and will love being thrashed on the track.

before i do any trackdays i'd like to do a brake upgrade, still on 280mm rotors and unknown pads, im contemplating 350z brembos or 33 GTR brakes but unsure whether they will fit behind the LM's. 

Also need to look into all the adjustable suspension arms, im not a massive fan of all the rose joints! i've been looking at the driftworks adjustable arms that have polybushed ends. 

We'll see what the tax fairy brings me this year and set up a plan from there.

Maybe you should ask that Dose Pipe prick about fitting BBS LMs over 350Z Brembos :)

(dirty plug I moved away from trak-life and started up my own side hustle, so if you need any braking hardware as such, holla :) )

thanks for the informative link, i've got 17" LM's though so i may be cutting it a bit fine!

I'll keep an eye out for a set of callipers once ive got some coin, either way, if they dont fit i can always sell them on i suppose!

hmmmmmmm

I did have R33 GT-R wheels over them before and they were fine, however I do recall the 18x9 +20 BBS LMs sat pretty close, about 6~7mm of clearance.

Say you had bad front wheel bearings, it probably would have kissed.

I’m running 17x9 +35, however they are reverse mounted so that lowers the offset I believe. I’ll have to do a bit of googling to confirm. I’m sure the VAG boys will have a super detailed explanation as they all have them on their stanced golfs with crackle maps.

Current clearance is about 5mm from the face and about 20-25mm from the nuts in the back of lips4CB56AC2-619E-4E9E-AAD2-BBDF50060B32.thumb.jpeg.2f4c167199d732f222342c5afb7cdd8e.jpeg678B8494-A6EB-4C86-A08B-9B33ADF08DF1.thumb.jpeg.b7c258dfa4b6f30574c6e7021ccc1380.jpeg

I will say it will collect the spokes, 350Z Brembos with a little further out than the GT-R Brembos too.

Been a little while since i updated this thread. Nothing huge has happened but i'll go ahead anyway.

Managed to source some OEM indicators so that i could get rid of the clear ones that had been painted orange.

Then gave the coilpack cover a trim as it fouled on the wiring and installed it back on the engine

Also spent a bit of time this weekend designing and 3d printing a new dash cluster for the car. the one that was in there was just a piece of ABS sheet. i tried adding a bit of an OEM flare and recess the guages properly into the dash rather than having them proud. ive moved the guages closer to the cluster so that its easier to read them when both hands are on the wheel. Pretty happy with how it turned out. may revise the design a bit when i next get some free time!

Ooo looks nasty! I raised my car a bit so I could get on my own driveway. My servo is pretty steep too and I clear that one....just!

It’s been a month or two since I last updated this thread. Been slowly chipping away at the car and doing a few upgrades.

First thing on the list was replacing the front brakes, the discs were below the limit and the pads weren’t too far behind. I thought I’d increase front rotor size whilst I was replacing them.

Purchased some HFM 2 piece 324mm r33 GTR rotors, gktech braided lines and 280-324mm dog bones. Intima SR pads and some motul brake fluid. Gave the callipers a splash of colour whilst they were off too.

Next up was tackling the alignment issue, it’s handled like a bag of crap since I first got it, also had a horrendous squeeking issue on the front passenger side. So I stripped the upper adjustable arms off the car and look what I found.

Passenger side was the top arm, drivers side was the bottom arm. Notice how drivers side is offset and correct and the passenger side is parrallel? Always wondered why drivers side had more camber than the passenger side. Also found that the bearings where flogged out.3F280A88-FA0C-4999-ACF1-408E217073DA.thumb.jpeg.d1d1e8352bbc285be7ad676759269ad3.jpeg

So they have been thrown in the bin and I’ve replaced them with some Cusco fixed negative camber arms instead. No more squeeks!

Took the car for an alignment and wow what a difference it’s made!!

And last, but by no means least, I’ve put a carbon GTR rear wing on the car. Think it makes the car look heaps better!
