  1. http://musclecargt.com/index/indexpage/0
  2. They're just re-sellers of parts out of the same Taiwanese factory as the Muscle Car Parts stuff, and seem to be generally more expensive - eg Muscle Car Parts sells 1600 rear 1/4's for AU$650, they are selling the exact same bits for US$632 (I assume the prices are in US$ ?), 240Z bonnets from MCP are AU$1250, they have them for US$1100
  3. As was my brother's 2 seater 260Z, until I painted it Toyota Red Mica.....
  4. Not sure if urban myth or not, but I read somewhere that Gerry Crown in the P76 had to get his navigator to drive some sections of a previous Peking to Paris as the Chinese govt deemed him too old to drive.
  5. Auto or manual ? Rust in both doors, or just the one pictured ?
  6. They will be 1 3/4" british HS6 SU's. Definitely genuine british SU's, and 4 bolt mounting means they aren't 1 1/2" HS4's (they only have two mounting holes set diagonally). You can mount the 1 3/4" SU's to the standard SSS manifold (if you're using that for your L20B) by only using two of the four holes in the HS6 carbs. Needs a lot of work with die grinder to open the ports up in the manifold though (see pic). Can also get a Lynx manifold that is made for the bigger carbs on a 4 cylinder L-series.
  7. SU Midel in Sydney sell a huge range of SU needles, about $10 each last time I got some. You won't get stock 240Z needles from SU Midel (or any SU carb shop) as 240Z carbs aren't "real" SU's - you would have to get genuine Nissan if they are still available. Otherwise, you'll have to work out what the needles in the zed "Hitachi copies of SU's" equate to in the "genuine british SU" needle range.
  8. For those arriving on Thursday night, you could volunteer as a flaggie for the Friday supersprint ! Get to be absolutely trackside for the day, watch some amazingly fast machinery scream past a meter or two from your flagpoint, and get free camping in the paddock behind the pits all weekend, pass to get your car through the tunnel and in and out of the campground all weekend, free t shirt, cap, jacket, food and, if they do it again this year, a free "volunteer appreciation lap" at speed around Mt Panorama in the passenger seat of one of the "V8Supercar experience" cars. No experience required ! It is a thoroughly enjoyable experience, well worth trying it at least once (unless it rains as heavy as it did in 2017.......).
  9. No worries, I finally obtained a CAMS Bronze Event Command qualification late last year (so I'm now qualified to act as Clerk of Course at race meetings up to State level) Part of getting the qualification was to either learn all this stuff or learn where it could be found. Was never easy to find stuff on CAMS website, they re-designed the whole website recently and made it even harder...........
  10. The only CAMS events you can run an unregistered and non-logbooked car are club and multi-club sprints. Challenge Bathurst, for instance, is state level so needs a logbook.
  11. Depends on the level of the event. Plenty do (state supersprints / Challenge Bathurst / etc). Basic club events, not so much.
  12. As far as varying requirements for different categories / levels, basically you pick a category and logbook the car to that. Its then up to event organisers to decide if your car meet the requirements for whatever type of event you enter. You're not limited to entering events for what its logbooked for. My 1600 is logbooked as Gp 3 PRC (ie a rally car) despite never being used on dirt, because that was the best "fit" when I got it inspected, according to the CAMS logbook inspector. In your case, pick a category that allows the seats you have and a perspex window, even if that ends up being sports sedans or something.
  13. Then yep, you should be right, subject to them passing scrutineering (ie not obviously damaged or worn).
  14. What standard is your harness ? FIA / SFI ?
