Gender reveal burnout

Recommended Posts

When you name he kid you should announce that by writing the name in burnouts somewhere. Keep the theme alive.

Each announcement equals burnout for some reason.

    • Heard back from Neat Gearboxes today to say they've got the gearbox internals back from hardness testing and they were all "exactly where they need to be" which is good news.  He said formerly Speedtek stuff had been overly hardened (brittle) so they must have improved on that process of late. Sam is peening and polishing it all as we speak before re-assembly within the next week or so. Hopefully they can send me some photos as otherwise it will be the only part on the car I haven't seen the inside of!  Should look pretty sexy after the peen/polish job on the gears. I'm losing my licence soon (long frustrating story but ultimately from constantly speeding but in the end not why I lost my licence...) so I'll probably be doing less camping and motorbike riding and might be able to actually get some work done on the Skyline.  Once the gearbox is sitting on the floor of the shed hopefully that is enough to make me pull my finger out and finish off this damn, epicly long fiasco!! Finally then I will discover if I still have it in my heart to keep it or whether I'm so over it I can't bear to look at it anymore!  It would be bittersweet if I did sell it.  Obviously the cash would be handy and take 10 years off the home loan but I don't know if I could ever forgive myself for giving up an amazing car.  I still kick myself from time to time about getting rid of my old Datto Ute but this would be on a whole different level.  The Datto was totally the wrong vehicle for me but I still loved it! I'll post up some photos of  the box bits if anything comes back.
    • Matchbot will tell you there is no way an 8374 should be on a 3.0L RB.    That said, I ran mine happily for some years at sub 120krpm making 650-700hp at hubs and spinning to 7000-7500rpm on both 3.0 and now Nitto 3.2.  Intake temps were ok - but it didn't want to make any more power.  It has finally let go just two weekends ago.    We had recently added launch control which may or may not have contributed (or at least shortened its life).     Everything on Matchbot says its should be overspeeding, but I've got logs to show it wasn't (unless there is an issue with what/how we are reading) - so I am not sure how this correlates to Matchbot..  perhaps the default VE figures are different enough to affect it?   I've also run an 8474 on same engine (3.2L, both 1.05 rear) and it definitely feels laggier than the 8374.  On a dyno plot its only about 200rpm later coming on, but in practice, on a rally sprint coming off 2nd gear corners, you notice the difference.  Also between gear transient response is dulled a bit. 8474 makes about 50hp at the hubs more on same boost (750hp at 23-26psi) , temps post turbo (pre intercooler) are only 10 degree cooler. And post cooler can't see a difference.  Definitely when in the mid-range revs and up you feel the extra legs it has. So!  for me, on a 3.0-3.2L  I'd be going 8474 and altering gearing to suit what you're doing,  and keep it a bit further up the rev range.    
    • So we have also had the front off. So from jacking it up to engine out is an hour, slinging it back in is about hour and a half so pretty happy with that for at the racetrack kinda setup
    • My 8374 is at 127krpm at 490wkw (650whp) so it has nothing left. You'll need an 8474.
    • I don't think there is even a choice here. The 8474 should out perform the 8374 with close to identical response.
