  1. Went over to Wagga today to check out the course for the Australian Marathon Championship. Only did one lap of the 25k course as it was an official course inspection and there was a bit of stoping and looking at things. Great facility and super little MTB park. Some great technical bits. https://auscycling.org.au/nat/events/2022-auscycling-mtb-xcm-national-championships-wagga-wagga Event information if any of you are interested. If anyone comes send me a PM and we can catch up. I’m playing race director. Jeff
  2. Jon If you talk to Fred at Lennock Motors he can generally chase up most available parts for old Datsuns. He is the owner of a couple is 240’s. Be warned he is always up for a chat . Jeff
  3. Ryan Its interesting. I got the MK63 setup from a Japanese friend who I have helped out at rally events for over 20 years. They were sort of a “gift” not free but nothing like full bottle. I installed them because they are copies of the original works parts so had a period link to the 240z and they were in the shed. I was running the original OEM brakes front and rear previously and the car stoped quite well and I didn’t find the original brakes lacking at all. After installing the MK63 set up (keeping the rear drums) I honestly did not feel any great difference except after the 5th 6th or 7th heavy stop. The original brakes work fine for most driving and all road legal driving. The MK63 set up helps with multiple heavy close stops but they are very expensive for what they are. If you want brakes for very spirited driving there are plenty of options that will be much better value for money than the MK63 front option and would probably but not essentially include rear disks. But then there is the wank factor of having MK63 (copy) fronts. Jeff
  4. Jon this is beautiful. I’m looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. Locky you should be very proud of your teams work on this car. All you need now is a YouTube Chanel and you will be big time. Jeff
  5. It’s been cold and very wet of late in the nation’s capital so opportunities for a drive have been a bit scares. Jeff
  6. Some pump track action from champs Jeff IMG_0898.MOV IMG_0908.MOV
  7. I was at Maydena last week at MTB Nats. I was assistant chef and in charge of DH and Pump Track. So I spent most of the week standing at the bottom of the DH track. I am still smashed from a very big week. Quite stressful with some nasty crashes including Troy Brosnan during his race run. The usual broken collar bones and wrists but we also had a femur a Troy ended up breaking his leg. Ill get a ride in later this week and on the weekend.

  8. Mike Did you survive the RT race and get to Cotter Pines? Jeff
  9. Back to Cotter Pines today. Great place, lovely flowing trails. Any one heading to National Champs in Tasmania in February? Jeff
  10. https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/1978-datsun-260z?utm_source=website&utm_medium=share Tidy 260. Winning bid $81,200. Jeff
  11. Ryan Strut brace won’t change anything as it’s not body flex causing the wheel to rub on the strut and its not flexing in the strut. It will be wheel flexing or play in the wheel bearings. The stub axle and strut are as one and very solid so will not flex relatively to each other. Check wheel bearing play and or add a spacer. Jeff
  12. New age old school craftsman at work. Jeff
  13. Big XC race weekend coming up in Canberra at Stromlo presented by CORC, two weeks before Nat Champs. 29 and 30 January. Saturday is Junior World Series (JWS) inc UCI C2 XCO and Sunday is a National T1 race. Should be a great weekend of racing. Saturday will also be round 1 of AusCycling UCI XCO series. Beers at the Handelbar after racing. Race Director Jeff
  14. Donation to this web site and it’s yours. Having a bit of a clean up and rediscovered the towbar that was attached to the rear of my 240 when purchased. Never going back on my car! If anyone wants it it’s yours. Pickup only from Canberra. If no one wants it the steel will be repurposed. I’ll put it under the house in the short term. Yes I painted the shed floor. Jeff
  15. I purchased new belts from https://www.seatsafe.com.au/products/ I have a standard lap sash in passengers seat and a 3 point road harness on drivers side Jeff
  16. It’s a great time of life when the kids start purchasing their own bikes. You still get the thrills but without the expense. Daughters new bike arrived today. It was delivered to our house so I could build it for her. Only down side is that she is going to be so fast on this dam thing. Classic how you can get a box from Germany in a week but cannot get click and collect from Bunnings in that time. Jeff
  17. Lockdown jigsaw puzzle’s . Nice work Locky. Jeff
  18. We might all be bogans in our own way. Your car Rudi your choices. Not my cup of tea but that’s my choice. Thumbs up Jeff
  19. Couple of very nice cars in this and a chat with the Klassic fab guys at about 29 min. Worth watching. On my bucket list of events to visit one day. Jeff
  20. Haha. Lucky it’s within 5k of home and in the same district. Jeff
