    Oldschool Hanmer Springs - 2019 Discussion

    I know. The dates look like they will work, might just be a one nighter though, and no OS car either

    I don't really have an excuse to not attend. May even have an old car in the South Island.

    Weber dcd / Weber 32/36

    I'm pretty sure they are interchangeable. What's the jetting in the 32/36 because they were used on much larger engines. I ran a 28/36 DCD with too large jets and it was terrible but tune it down smaller and it was fine. You can also take a SPI injection unit off a Falcon and it pretty much bolts up too (with some slight slotting) In case you want to run EFI with massive injectors at 0.05% duty cycle

    Bike carbs sizing

    Having gone down both paths. Modern Japanese on injection is the way of the future. You can spend a lot of money making an old engine only half as good as a modern twin cam. Also 4AGEs are an old engine now. Basic 16v design is 35 years old now. MX5 engine in rwd is the go.

    Keen to see how this turns out. Chassis fabrication looks good.

    I edited and pasted links for you - it's as easy as pasting the link in the address bar.

    Sheeperz MS65 Crown Chitty-Chat

    I'm really impressed by your level of care for a car you're just going to on sell once done. Paint looks cool. You could have Crowns in all colours of the rainbow at this rate.
  8. On the tin says 'rally car turquoise' because I got it mixed when I resprayed it 10 years ago. It's a slightly brighter version of the colour it was when I bought it. No idea what it's originally from.

    Vivaspeed's 1969 HB Viva racing type car

    I didn't manage my third run of that hillclimb because the rag joint in the steering broke and I had no steering. Luckily it was in the paddock while at low speed, not during a run. Replaced it with a new Nolathane part. Lucky. Anyway, having not crashed it I decided to put a new ECU in it, something I'd been meaning to do for ages. Bought a Link Atom with easy mount kit from NZEFI. I also splashed out on new connectors so the wiring was easy and everything is nice and new. Decided to go to a wasted spark setup as well. It runs! Just need to get it tuned up. I also replaced a headlight with a mesh grill and made a really quick and dirty cold air intake.

    Time for more videos. I took this out to a hillclimb in November 2017 and beat @mjrstar by a very small margin. Here's some clips. Clip 1 - how to make some poo come out Clip 2 - the full version of my last run

    Given its M powered I'm sure any reliabilty will be short term only. (Says he with the British and Australian and Mitsubishi cars)

    2JZ time?
  13. Hey who has a recommendation for a fibreglass repair place Auckland Hamilton Tauranga area? Got a smashed light pod with my Evo rally car which looks repairable but my fibreglass skills are pretty basic and I'm a bit time poor.

    There are many reasons it looks stupid, but you can blame the wheels.

    Height looks good. Wheel to sidewall ratio is all wrong.
