When I was looking at jobs down there there was a plastics company near geelong I think that paid well for process type work.

That would be a fair hike to work everyday.

He already lives in a town with population of about 10 (and a few cows/chickens). Need to move to somewhere that have buildings taller than a double story home.  :P

Even the Japanese would go nuts I think... I know they have built some mean L-series but this is the first I've heard of with this kind of displacement. Looking forward to it Pete.

heheh that's funny ,i was told by them that we are hicks and don't know sh  it about race engines, and we have engines  much better than you do hear in AUSTRALIA ,,, and our hp figures are so low that we don't know how to build a L Series


No matter what you do, there is always going to be haters and doubters.

50 cent once told me. "Go ahead switch the style up and If they hate then let em hate and watch the money pile up"

I can't wait to see this new stroker as well.

Man what a wussy engine, wont even rev to 9000rpm with all that bottom end work.

I could buy a Rebello stroker that would do 50 more hp than that on 44mm carbs...  ;D

Peter mc26,
What is the paint called that the outside of the block is coated in?
And is the internal orange paint a special thing at all?

Now you know how the guys at NISMO and Reinik felt when Fred Gibson's lot told them they didn't know how to build race cars or race engines.

Karma's a bitch, isn't it?

But didn't Gibson Motorsport actually end up giving intellectual property of performance developments back to Japan?
Or do I have my wires crossed? ???

Intellectual property? The vast majority of the base car was Nissan's intellectual property ( and commercial product ) FFS!

You're both missing the point. Anybody who ( *allegedly* ) compared Rebello's over-the-counter street engines with anything else, and said that the Rebello engines trump all, is stupid. You just can't compare like with like in this kind of situation. If you try to get into that kind of contest then you are on a hiding to nothing, especially if you turn up out of the blue on a USA-based forum touting your wares and slagging off the local opposition.

The sad thing about the Gibson guys sledging NISMO and Reinik is that it was the tail wagging the dog. Talk about biting the hand the feeds you. It's not as though the Reinik engines were dogs. The cars they were used in swept the board in their series for three years. They TOTALLY dominated. The point was they didn't have to turn the wick up that much.  Not to mention that they were involved in a fairly different type of Group A racing than the Australian series. The Reinik engined cars certainly never suffered the amount of DNFs that the GMS engined cars did.

What grates is that the Gibson side carps on about how brilliant they were, and how sh*t Reinik and NISMO were, but the car itself was designed, engineered, homologated and produced in Japan. It had NISSAN written on it in big letters. Who wants to have a dog that asks its owner to bark? When all is said and done, the GMS people should let their achievements speak for themselves. Their slagging off of their partners only showed that they didn't have the dignity that Reinik and NISMO had. There were two sides to the story ( as there always are ), but you won't hear the NISMO guys slagging off GMS....

Yes, but improved on were they not?

I don't recall any sledging or slagging coming from these shores  ???
But then again, I was a kid unlike you old farts  :P

Furtive cazy brain thinking!  Shades of FJ24 horniness going on!

Ahem,,,,,,, can that crank be destroked to 79 mm???

Group Sc!
Oh, and nbased on the offsets on the counterweights, and less stress to block, and, a block girdle, 9500 rpm could be achieved,,,, yes,,???
Im allowed roller rocker assy, apparently, as others are using them!!!

Single TB smallest d is 56 mm, with tapered intake prior to smallest id, at the "correct" included angle!
