Recommended Posts

Hi Guys/ Gals,

Next Winton Fun Day is gonna be Sunday 23rd Jan 2005. (Weekend before Australia Day.)

Just guaging interest at this stage. I know the last one only just past, but a few of my mates in the gemini's are keen.

I may be going away during this time, but if a few other people were keen.....

Check this thread out for details of the last one: http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/sh...ead.php?t=58481

Here is the after comments and pics: http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/forums/sh...ead.php?t=59070

Stupid question: Where is this Winton place?

(I live out in the sticks of country Vic.....and not immersed in the car scene too :-( )

I would like to go if I can and its not hours and hours away from me.....

nds - there are lots of cars on the track at once. Like +40 cars. In a sense its one of the good things - becuase it means you can get over 3hrs of track time a day if you like as they really get through the field. But its also one of the bad things as there is rarely ever any clear track.

    • I do have a tiny tiny misfire occasionally but I think it's because I got a little fuel down into a plug tube so I'll pull the coils out and see if I can dry those out. 
    • Ok, so here the embarrassing 'fess up' post. Here's the crack, or broken part of the old valve cover. Pretty obvious break and in hindsight it's quite the face palmer 🤦‍♂️ but let me explain why I didn't think this was a problem. This side part of the valve cover is an additional piece, it protrudes from the main valve cover and it's also where the fuel rail mounts.....  You can see the rail at the bottom and you can see this external piece hanging off the side of the cover. It almost looks sandwiched in this pic.  Here's another cover with that side piece ...  On top of this, when looking at the inside of the cover, there were no openings(*) for that section. So I really just thought I'd broken some crispy plastic mount for the fuel rail.... Until somebody drew my attention to the air openings at the BOTTOM of the cover, not INSIDE the cover. So, I had a ginormous PCV leak. The cover needed to go and I should have taken everybodies advice and got a new one in the first place. The original one is just fried, its really brittle. It was nice to have the new one be really snug in position and the screws were slightly tight to do up which was completely different to the original ones that almost undid themselves.    
    • Pulled out this pile of shit, will be refreshed soon enough. Had coolant hit my face and I accidentally tasted it.  It's sweet.
    • Looks awesome. Well done. I'd love to drive Laguna Seca! 
    • This video is great, the enthusiasm is infectious and it's kind of cute. It's great to see these things being used properly on track, it reminds me of track days of old. It is a bit funny seeing everyone so excited about Skylines, whereas here they're all considered a bit nuggety or shitboxy. If this seems odd to you mr OP, imagine all of us being this giddy about seeing 30 C5 Vettes on a track at once place, full of influencers taking their videos and posting for clout. That said, you did a great job conveying the fun and excitement of a track day, getting out there and just having some damn fun.
