  1. Sorry for the lack of info guys, I have enquired with Taupo a few times and am bashing my head against a brick wall, was kinda hoping I would eventually deal with someone different but it’s the same dude with the same attitude every time. I’m currently making one last attempt that seems to be following the previous trend. Does anyone know anyone at Bruce Mclaren Motorsport park? maybe wait till old mate tony Quinn has it in his hands
  2. not sure what it was for, my mate has the same one on his subaru brumby, so who knows
  3. the shell its mint its just the valance and bonnet that are rotten which I have spares, container has vents on the doors (facing the prevailing wind) and a whirly bird on the back end of the roof
  4. Organising long term projects and parts Got a lucky streak as @AE25 knew a guy that worked for a company that needed to clear out their old shelving. It's amazing how much stuff you can fit in a 40ft high cube
  5. Long time no update, unemployed life has got me busier than ever. I’ll start where we left off and chuck up what little photos I took along the way finished the sump, no photos of rubber flappy baffles bat it’s all in there. Ended up with an extra 200ml of volume and a sump that’s above the crossmember so a bash plate can be fitted(yet to make) Before the engine got thrown back in I tidied up the wheel tubs and the recessed firewall Had to do the clutch as dual mass flywheels aren’t ideal. Let alone when there is 30°-40° of slack in the stock flywheel. Aftermarket single mass
  6. So I’ve been chipping away over the past weeks. So much done but still so much to do! Managed to get the whole rear end dialed Just need to cap the upper arm boxes (can’t decide if I should make removable or just weld them on) Caliper brackets made and calipers mounted Made a start on the sump as the factory lower pan would have sat 40mm lower than the crossmember made an intake pipe by stretching a 3” tube over a 3”-5” sch40 reducer. Bit of grease and the press did the job Trying to decide header layout also Fixing up some back yard rust repairs,
  7. length of steering arm will only adjust the speed the wheels turn vs input (which also changes force applied to turn the wheels, longer =easier, shorter = harder) ackerman is based on drawing imaginary parallel lines down the sides of you "vehicle" intersecting the lower pivot of your king pin angle. moving the steering mount location, inboard or outboard of this will change your ackerman being front rack you want to move the mounts outwards so that the steering mount intersects the lower king ping piviot and aims towards the centre of the rear axle for optimal turning
  8. also, most of the rare spares parts dont come close to fitting so track down originals if you can, still quite alot of ke3#/ke5# parts in aus
  9. they were built with alot of aussie parts, brake calipers are girlock aswell. thas chrome sill trim is an aus spec thing also. you will find that the roof kin is roller pinch welded like how fuel tanks are made vs jap assembled spot welds. if you ever have to pull the axles out make sure you order a seal/bearing kit as they tend to leak if you dont replace the seal
  10. marshal jobs should be pretty cruisey, for the track 3 drifting side of things almost all the drivers will have many years of experience so will have one person situated where you turn off the back straight as its totally blind. and track 2 one in the pit tower and another on the infield. i expect muppetry to be super low as drifters have alot of seat time and most of the oldschool guys know whats up and understand the responsibilities as a driver.
  11. the idea was to have two marshals for each track and do a half day each, so if someone was to do that sort of scenario, i wouldn't say no. most people i know who will attend, will drive and sharn all day so hard to get people, just sweetening the deal and trying to keep you all safe
  12. so with the majority of covid out of the way, I have progressed a little with pricing and a date, so far they are free for august next year. would you guys be interested in a Friday or prefer a Saturday/Sunday? price is looking to be the $10,00 mark for a single day so i would be looking at 25 spots for track 2 and another 25 for track 3. that brings a rough estimate for cost around the $210-$220 mark depending on bonds and paying a couple people to marshal throughout the day depending on Taupo's response and negotiations, track 3 grip prices might go down and track 3
  13. nice. i love the aus spec interior with ashtrays in the rear passenger cards, looks tidy for the price
  14. car colours are actual legends, i deal with with them often
