    The K20A / K24A thread

    That dude wobbles around so much ! Is that normal in a car with no harnesses or is he just super ADHD
  2. Definitely need more pictures of this thing. I am intrigued and I love a unique car with a history. Even if it is a half arsed attempt at one.
  3. I'll be there this Saturday. Might see some of you guys there. Looking forward to it!

    Damn.. I liked your post because of the good time and the win, then I read that it might be a bent valve that ended the day. Bugger!
  5. Bump/reminder for tomorrow night because I already forgot. Not racing, but will try and make it up there for a look.

    Truenotch's BEAMS AE86 racecar discussion

    Wow a full birthday. Will be like a brand new car now.
  7. I'm keen to come along again. Will decide closer to the time if I can be bothered breaking my car again, but will at least be there to watch. Have changed the first post, but Markku can you setup another facebook page and change the links? Keen for Taupiri again, or should we try Rangiriri for easier Auckland participation? Also, need to get a few more Hamiltonians there this time!
  8. Just watching the V8ST race and had a laugh at the poor buggers that got the pit box near where our cars were. Might be a little slippery..

    What breed was your crappy pedal box? Not OBP?
  10. I've been to one but didn't participate, but it seemed pretty good. Well structured running, so everyone gets equal time on track. And lets be honest, at a normal trackday most of our cars are broken for the afternoon sessions anyway.

    Rear coil overs.

    Maybe some Honda springs, but ironically it would probably be cheaper to just buy a 2nd hand set of coilover springs on TM
  12. Have been to Rangiriri pub a couple of times before and it isn't too bad, but that was a while ago. Not too far away from the track too.

    Bathurst this weekend.

    You must be part Brazilian. Thats the type of thing they do over there. Chev Sonic (Barina Sedan) running a Chev push rod V8 Brasil Stock Cars Or a mini Chevy Cruze running a 2.7 quadcam V8 in TC2000 So lol/weird/awesome/shit

    Agreed, it will hang about for a few more years at least. I never thought I would say this, but I just hope it stays with V8's or at least something decent. With everyone else going to small capacity turbo engines motorsport is losing something. It still needs to be a spectacle, and sound is definitely part of that. Touring car regs seem to have a decent overhaul every 5 to 0 years at the most, so I'd say current regs would get them through until 2017 or so, by which time they might be running coupes on the current chassis, but then they may look at something a little different. I'd be surprised if the manufacturers wanted to run coupes though. Those niche market cars sell themselves, but always in small numbers. Its the mass market sedans that they would want to market with motorsport. Ford weren't offering factory backing from 1979 to 1993 as far as I'm aware, anything with a Ford badge was privateer run, so it's not the huge thing people are making out. In fact many series run without any manufacturer support, look at current BTCC. The money just needs to be there and for that it needs fans etc.
