  1. I'll take the RH (Drivers) one if you're ok splitting them?
  2. I ran them in a GTR when they were new and popular, but didn't see any benefit. I just remember they were very expensive at more than $30 a plug. I thought the benefit was more about long life and good on cars where it's hard to replace plugs e.g. having to take inlet manifolds off. I just run normal plugs in my track car. I know some of my friends who also race now do the same.
  3. So finished fixing up my car and had a few runs at the track in it over last year. Got it from this: To track ready. It was a bit of work over about 18 months This was earlier in the year. I'm running in regularity and starting out in front so not other cars for a few laps until I catch the back markers. Still some improvement required, both with the car and driving it. The tyres are a limiting factor as I can only fit 225 tyres on it.. I think my quickest time for the day was 60.4 seconds.
  4. No didn't drive before brakes. The car was built up from a body shell. Done for track. Probably a bit too much work for road use. My car is a runner, but still tweaking. More photos in my profile. Quite a bit of work to get an RB in. Engine and gearbox mounts. Tailshaft. Custom sump. EFI pump and surge tank. All the wiring. If you can't do it yourself, then quite a bit cost to it all. Only for those that are committed and not on a limited budget. Yep I'm in Tas.
  5. RB25DET in mine and Skyline brakes to go with it. GTR 325 mm rotors. Some machining work to fit them i.e. convert the five bolt rotor to four bolt. Fabrication of caliper mounts too. So if you can't do the work it could be expensive to get it done. There is a build thread on here done by KatoKid. I did it the same way, but went with the larger rotors.
  6. You can get viynl or leather sets from here, but they are in US. I'm assuming the late 260Z is the same as the 240Z I haven't bought them, but bought a set of their seat covers and was very impressed with the quality. https://interior-innovations.com/product/1970-1973-datsun-240z260z-tunnel-covers/
  7. Definitively no bingo there. You could be right on the cut and shut. Might be why that rear vinyl has been sat back in place for the photo.
  8. Thanks. I'll reduce it a bit and see how it goes.
  9. Thanks. So I'm doing it home and I can't measure degrees, but measured track in mm and then converted with a bit of trig. I end up with 0.6 degrees total. So sounds like I need a bit more. Now this surprised me because when I measured the track at the front and rear of the wheels the difference in track is 5mm. This looked like it was way too much. I was thinking perhaps 2-3mm total toe in. So just confirming I need to put more toe in on it?
  10. How much rear toe in are people running at the track? I'm assuming a bit of toe in works best.
  11. Sorted. Got from Maserati Compound in the US.
  12. I put RB box in my car and by putting the larger subaru diff flange on my datsun R180 diff I was able to use the complete skyline shaft. These larger skyline unis seem to be able to handle plenty of power. I saw your car at a Japanese car show in Melbourne a couple of years ago. I like the wheels on it so much I bought the same.
  13. I reckon he pulled his old gearbox out, which is why the gbox and tailshaft are there. Vacuumed out all the clutch dust. Then went to put his nice new clean box in, and went WTF! So took a photo to show people the situation he's got himself into and how badly he needs a new box.
  14. Hi, I'm chasing the two saddles that are use to bolt the rear lower control arm up to the hangers. Greg
