  1. Holy 500 horsepower! Nice.
  2. There's nothing that fast over here Glen... Well, aside from Turn 1 at Pukekohe. The last corner at Hampton Downs is a long radius, but not super fast, although diff (and sump) baffles would still be beneficial there! Love the thermal imaging Dave. I'm seriously considering getting a CAT phone with built in FLIR for my next phone...
  3. This is so sweet! Looks like a couple of years of hard work is paying off? It would be great so see this driving around and making our roads more classy.
  4. The Wobbly Arse Bandits. Choice.
  5. A++ stuff, thanks for sharing! I have one of these in the shed and have been tossing up my options with it... Now you've inspired me to uplift the newer Honda scooter frame and engine that's sitting in my Dad's shed as an engine donor.
  6. The idea of the tacho becoming an IRL real time fuel economy graph lols me.
  7. Man this thing looks exceptional. Sorry if I've missed it, did you raise this up before it went in for panel and paint?
  8. Those flares will look great when you get them right! I'm tempted to get you to make me a bonnet too...
  9. Lay off the pies! That poor RR suspension couldn't handle it any longer .
  10. ClubAW was awesome. I take it from that last post that you're keeping the standard viscous LSD rather than going for a plate type or torsen type unit?
  11. Glad to see it's coming along! I'd recommend bracing the upper 4 link mounts back to the wheel arch. Mine were similar to yours but with angled braces to the tunnel - still cracked eventually. They will get a bit of a beating, so it's better to be safe!
  12. I've got one with a bluetop that's probably a lot less fucked. It runs. Let me know if you want to buy it.
  13. Adding weight to the front is a bullshit fix. Driving them properly is a better method. They are about 60/40 Front/Rear and you'll get used to it eventually. If you're using it on dirt a locker or LSD will make it much more controllable.
  14. Clubsport events don't usually require a WOF but you'll probably need to get a motorsport NZ logbook (easy). Read schedule A on www.motorsport.org.nz for basic safety requirements. All you really need is a solid battery bracket, isolated positive terminal, good seat and belt (standard is fine), steering and brakes that work.
