I have been pretty slack lately so time for an update!
Now where to start?
finally got my full license so I can drive it on the street
Well I have been attending quite a few driving sports events this year
Have got to say that my favourite mod I have done so far is GKTECH lock spacers, could not believe how much of a diference they made!
and got a little bit sick of driving from the passengers seat so i decided to get fake bride with genuine rails and holy sheeet! did it make a difference, alot better than standard s13 seats thats for sure..
Had a oil leak from the crank pulley so whilst that was being replaced I got my RAS's installed, AND THAN when driving home I thought to myself 'Dane, you have been a very good and responsible boy in this car, not hitting limiter at all!' mostly due to the fact of me worrying to much about shit breaking due to no RAS's, so anyway I decided to put the car into neutral so I did not put a load on it(i just wanted to hear BAM BAM BAM!) put my foot down, car revs to about 9K! so I'm thinking it should have hit limiter already so I stopped and put the car back into gear to continue driving. Nek minnit
my cat decides it wants out and it gets it's way, all over the road on fire with swerving motorists behind me the car becomes gutless and I was forced to stop and it now sounds as if I have performed an EJ20 conversion (I swear I didn't!) unable to drive home I got a tow from a mate (thanks Chris) and began to try and find the problem.
first guess was the car could not breath properly due to a blocked cat so took to it with a pole to knock the guts out, smashed it all onto dads garage floor and put it back on, start the car, no dice, maybe a EJ25 now? looked at hand controller and there was nothing so I freaked out, turns out the cord for it came out. I'm ravving on here so il make it quick, worked out it was cyclinder 2 not firing, tried spark plug and coilpack, started to check the wiring it it turned out to be the plug for the coils was not connected properely , probably due to being unplugged for the rocker cover to come off..
I later looked at the hand controller and found that the limiter was at 9600rpm so I changed that pretty quick..
I found this out after searing here, ebay and other places for built motors lol.
Next on my list was to get the vertex kit on and after trying to fit it myself, failing hard and convincing myself that it was not okay the mount it with cable ties I took it to a smash repairer who did an awesome job!
(will add better pics soon)
Also picked up a safety 21 half cage pretty cheap and installed that
My GF found my computer password and let me know by sending this to me lol
Also went out to Eastern Creek on Saturday and tried out the north circuit for the first time and F*#K ME IT WAS AWESOME! most fun I have ever had in a car, did suck that the mate I went down with crashed on his second lap of the day
Had a little problem with the clutch slipping sometimes and my gopro coming off somehow which i luckily found yesterday but unfortunatly my memory card maxxed out literally the corner before it came off. The event did make me want to spend a lot of money, clutch, more power, and I'm thinking something a bit better than the standard LSD would be better..
Got the car passed for rego today and also noticed a couple problems.. the wheel has begun to dig into the wiring loom on the drivers side, how do I resolve this? tuck the loom or re-run in the bay? Also after looking at some money go pro footage I have relized that I have a shit load of fuel coming out of the fuel tank whilst drifting? what could that problem be? hellllllppppppppppppp?!?!?!
