    Australia Roll Call

    Also In Melbourne but have nothing hugely fun or cool here Mrs has a 2019 Corolla as a work car, I normally Daily Ride my Honda Cbr500r We also have a 2013 MY14 Subaru liberty wagon that is completely stock and only gets used to move the dog around or to pick things up in (really needs a towbar) but is the boring FB25 CVT version. Though its only broken down on me once due to dodgy fuel pump wiring overheating which I am currently awaiting to be recalled.

    BlownCoronas 1971 Toyota Corona

    It could be maybe I am getting my terminology out of wack its Friday and I am a couple of beers in Just curious and hoping that something off the shelf will work for you as 1500 for forged pistons isn't cheap

    BlownCoronas 1971 Toyota Corona

    Factory 2ARFE pistons might work as they are 90mm Factory compression ratio is 10.4:1 2ARFE Head 50cc Pins 22mm Rods 157.5mm Comp height 34.8mm Think the dome is -10cc from memory and can't remember the pin height (also no idea what 18r pistons pin height is) Would need to see how they compare but heaps of wrecks around with them so can be found cheap and stock 2ARFE seem to handle 350whp Wouldn't be hard to work out what comp you would get in the 18R if you know the headgasket thickness and combustion chamber size of the head, if the rods are shorter then youll lose some compression but that wouldn't be a bad thing anyway :p Not sure if this is helpful or not

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    Ordered some more parts for my Speedunio (have sold the car it was going into however) also got myself an 8x8 3.5 Teensy setup for sub 300AUD so now have two budget ecus for future projects Going to Japan on Thursday and once I get back will be putting money into my project car thats still in NZ. Will look around for a cheap hack to play with as well haha

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    Case Map sensor Arduino Mega 2560 GM air temp sensor with Pigtail Speedunino Component kit Speedunino V0.4 PCB $272.56Aud I have a wideband that I got a few years back for my track car (which is still being built in NZ) and I had a soldering setup plus other tools already Could have probably got the components cheaper if I shopped around but got them via the speedunio store as I like supporting it Still pretty cheap

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    Speeduino now built with a VR conditioner, waiting on my bluetooth module to arrive, will probably order a 2nd kit later on and build one with a teensy 3.5 but see how I go Havent soldered in 10years so not the most tidy job and have managed to keep my ocd at bay by not making it perfect as it works Had a LED 5,6,7 on when I powered it up but discovered it was an issue with the tune I had loaded onto it The car its going into is being borrowed by a friend as his V5 STI got stolen, however he has expressed that he may be interested in buying it so may end up buying another project for it to go into :p

    Waiting on a speeduino v0.4 diy kit to turn up, will be putting that together and possibly putting it into an 02 Impreza with the Ej201 engine will keep you all updated

    sheepers RA23

    Perhaps a front spoiler to help pull the front wheels down to gain more front end grip? Also the extra track would have changed your turning point so maybe you just need to get used to that?

    Suspension question

    So Im moving to Melbourne next month and have been looking at getting a classic Toyota Specificly a MS55 crown sedan (so sexy (however sheepers MS51 is hot) Ive come from Macpherson and live axle diffs (only dealing with double wishbone is the front of an r32 skyline) So from what I can tell the MS55 has double wishbone suspension at the front And 4 Link rear with springs on the solid axle and shocks seperate ? Now coming from Mac struts ive been spoilt and can buy coilovers off the rack for the application With the crown its alittle harder So im going to want to lower it Safely and I want to be able to adjust the height depending on the wheels Im running (adjustable dampner settings would be a bonus) (car will get mod plated) So at the front the bottom of the shock bolts onto the bottom arm which the spring also perchs on and then the top arm bolts to the top of the shock and the spring pushes against it? so if I want to go say 30mm lower do I need to reduce the max extension of the shock by 30mm? and reduce the spring height? I mean if I remove the factory setup can I run a short shock with the spring incorporated onto it? with an adjustable shock body to control height ? And for the rear can I do the same and remove the springs off the diff ? probably really explaining this badly Was thinking 6kg spring rates at the front and 4kg at the rear with a street style shock valving to match
  11. You could polish the crank if you get bored, Just make sure you get everything balenced

    Slammed Datsun too low?

    add a bolt under the bolt that holds the top hop of the shock on (used this on my skyline to make springs captive when the shocks were farked) should give you abit more clearence
  14. Hey I have a rebuilt shimmed up lsd diff from a r32 sitting in my garage its setup for non turbo cups and 4bolt backing plate not sure if it would fit anything u have but let me know

    Turbo fiends - clutch question

    All the heavy duty clutchs Ive had be it kevlor full face organic or even puck clutchs they take 1000km to wear in take it up through the revs stay away from redline lots of start stop traffic etc dont slip it to much and also you should only ever get clutch smell once when you start
