  1. Haha. Lucky it’s within 5k of home and in the same district. Jeff
  2. Morning ride at the arboretum today. Wonderfully weather. Jeff
  3. Actually very little weight gain over standard breaks. Each MK63 (copy) calliper is less than 100g heavier than standard calliper. The discs are comparable. Yes there are lighter overall options but you would probably only notice the difference at high speed on a race track. These fit easily under 15” wheels and I think there is a historic appeal to this setup. Jeff
  4. Lockdown has provided the opportunity to get a few maintenance checks done. I wanted to check the front hubs and wheel bearings. So while doing this I took the opportunity to swap the front brakes out for the copy MK63 callipers and disks that I have had sitting around for some time now. Awaiting brake lines to finish the swap off. Jeff
  5. If you look at the parts manual it may help you gather some of the information you seek. It may take time to decipher but it may be an interesting journey. If you donate to the site you can get access to a digital copy of the manual in the donating members area. Jeff
  6. Haha @Linton I think you are correct but I don’t think drilling holes in the hub or welding wheels would be seen as legal either. There is not much correct or legal about this conversation so far! At the end of the day making any changes to standard would need to be engineered to keep it “road worthy”. I believe using something like this could be engineered but I don’t think drilling holes in the flange would be. I know what I would be doing. Either leave as is with 4 studs or getting 5 stud flanges. Jeff
  7. Do you have wheels or do you still need to get them? You may be better using an off the shelf conversion spaces kit and running an offset wheel that takes the spacer into account (If you search the forum you will find answers about wheel offsets and what a standard wheel offset is). Using something like this will have two advantages. It will work and maintain the integrity of the hub and it can be reversed if you want to go back to 4 stud. Jeff
  8. New trails just to the west of Canberra officially opened a few weeks. Cotter Pines is a collaborative effort by the Kowalski Brothers team and local trail builders Iconic Trails. ACT gov provided some grants to assist with the works. It’s a mix of old school hand and machine built trails. Well worth a visit if your in town. Another place to ride. We are well spoilt. View is looking east with Stromlo in the foreground. Jeff
  9. This boomer is happy with his go kart. Only need two seats nowadays anyway. Jeff
  10. John Clarke would be impressed. Jeff
  11. https://skillard.com/product/datsun-240z-260z-280z-door-window-rubber-wipe-kit/ here you go. Even a how to video. Jeff
  12. These rubbers? I got them as part of a kit from zcarsource. I didn’t staple them back on I used pop rivet instead. Jeff
  13. My glass was delivered last year. So yes it’s too late. Jeff
  14. Not from here. I'm finding it quite interesting, almost exciting. Jeff
  15. Love it. That’s what’s needed for the build. Jeff
  16. Locky’s walk around video reminded me of this. Jeff
  17. If anyone is interested in this car and wants it inspected I am happy to have a look. It is located just around the corner from home. Drop me a PM with your number to arrange. Jeff
  18. Haha. No Dave not cold yet. It was still in positive figures on Monday and we reach well into the double digits for a max. Leg and arm warmers are still packed away for a few more weeks. Unlike NSW and VIC we had a public holiday Monday and it was a cracker of a day. Jeff
  19. Great day for a ride a coffee a drive and an ice cream. Jeff
  20. New bike arrived. Had an opportunity to upgrade and one of our sons mates wanted to buy my existing rig so it was a simple decision. Gone back to a trail bike from the all mountain. Jeff
