    V8 supercars, no free to air coverage

    This is bull Tassie government pay v8s to come here and race now we have to put up with a 1 hour delayed highlight package to see it if we cant make it to race track Sick of fat cats at V8s and Afl making money and giving nothing back to the supporters Mick

    Im very happy with 4.3 diff improved my lap times at Symmons plains The gearbox ratios work much better pulling hard in 5th into coca cola corner And on Hillclimbs ratios work well and launches a dream last Hillclimb i was matching the targa winning evo10 with launch control to first timing mark And it still cruises happily in 6th on 1700 revs for 110 kph Surprised you got through rego here with hydraulic hand brake but good luck to u What part of the state u in Justin Mick

    With new heads manifold and throttle body got car re tuned and managed a 400.4 hp at wheels with 70hp shot of nitrous got it up to 438 hp was very happy with this result my search for power is over having broke 400 hp barrier Took car to powercruise running real well till last drag practice when I broke and cv shaft Im blaming local cv workshop as when I asked him to cut a new circlip slot in to allow cv race to move up shaft to shorten it little bit more which he said he did When I pull it apart he took circlip off and welded 3 spot welds at end of spline can see where crack starts on one of the welds Guess heated treated shaft don't like welding even I knew that not happy Now anyone out there should know how rare these z31 axles are becoming I Read a thread that Nissan pathfinder shafts have same spline so I bought couple and yes shaft has same spline so I can use z31 cv joints on shaft Joints look fine no signs of wear or abuse But shafts are 40mm short so Im thinking this is a positive as well might need a spacer but can now set shaft up with some movement not tight like it is with the z31 shafts Ill let u know how it fits up Mick

    Well nearly ready for powercruise next weekend and 2 hillclimbs next month Built a new set of 1"7/8 4 into one extractors and had them ceramic coated New 243 heads fitted should lift compression from 10 to 1 to 11 to 1 New typhoon manifold fitted and 92 mm throttle body seems to go a lot harder with these mods Will check hp figures on dyno at powercruise Was thinking grill looked to big so I made a zed badge to fill the gap
