    Petes HB Viva Racecar

    Polybushes have no place in a race car mate. I tried them and they failed very fast. You want rubber (if you can get it). You'll have better traction and more money at the end of each season. What year is the car?1969?
  3. Sweet, I’ll let you know what they reply with

    Well done re: attendance. Shame about security. Im happy to chat to plaza management if it’ll help at all.

    Nerd help needed on router issues

    You can set the ip range to a large number but the router will have a limit on how many ip's it can manually assign. I just checked mine and I have a range from .1 to .199 but can only manually assign a max of 64 ip's within that.

    Hey, Discussion thread for the Viva setup. Drop your ideas below to incorporate into building this racecar. Cheers, Pete

    Petes HB Viva Racecar

    Gidday, Thought I'd start a thread on an HB viva I've just bought. It comes with a built 2.3l slant engine which apparently is a certified ripper but has probably been sitting for 10 years... I actually know very little about it, it's been a friends for as long as I can remember and he had some motivation a while back and got the body work done & painted it. Put in the GT grill and got GT badges. But these days he hasn't looked at it for years. Talking turkey with him at New Year 2018-19 and I said I'd look to buy it off him and finish it up and just sealed the deal about 6months later. I'm guessing the job list is: Strip engine, inspect, hone and replace rings. Build exhaust & extractors Rebuild carbs Radiator Install driveline. Clutch, gearbox & diffs largely unknown. But I think there are some spares from a 1.3l HC viva... Install MSNZ cage Entier braking system Poly bushes Springs & shocks Wheels & tyres Race seats, harness Fit enough interor to meet HSC class That should be the worst of it haha Anyway, I'm keen on some guidance on how to set this car up. E.g. springs to suit the 2.3l. Tips and tricks to set the car up for circuit racing. Brake components from other vivas etc. Won't be much work happening until I go collect it from the South Island which I think is going to be New Year 2019-20. Just want to get a bit of a plan in place and start keeping an eye out for any parts needed to get this finished up. Discussion thread here: Cheers, Pete

    It does look woundingly slow. The last time I ever rode my NQ50, a lycra fag on a push bike passed me on my way to work. I retired that bike that day.
  9. I can still hear that Corolla....
  10. Pour it through a loaf of bread, then buy new oil

    Those have “49cc” cast into the cylinder and no one will ever know it’s 60cc anyway. It still won’t be fast, but at least it won’t be so slow .
  12. Another good burger, more sharns and as usual people turning up in new old cars. OS life.
  13. This bitch is finally alive. Started yesterday with no exhaust so fairly rowdy. Just needs exhaust sorting, cooling fan found (looking for one currently let me know if you have one please!) I seem to have lost it over the last decade. Pretty pumped as I got the engine rebuilt over 12 years ago and was a bit worried there would be issues. Will need a tune etc and no doubt some other issue will show itself but its getting damn close. Looking forward to taking it for a fang!

    Nerd help needed on router issues

    Is 22 devices on a WiFi router heaps? I just thought it related back to the amount of addresses it could give out in total? So 255 would be max? I’m not a computer expert at all but that’s what I figured. I have had problems logging onto WiFi at some sites recently and I thought they had run out of addresses, but maybe that isn’t the case? Also, would an industrial network system have the same issues?

    It’s a “50cc”, so it’s road legal always

    Also. Is the reason this works with a pair of double A batteries but the arduino fires all the coils at once something to do with ground float? And how would i fix it? Forgot to say the arduino has 'fast shitty diodes' on the output pins. Think i toyed with a heavy resistor from the arduino ground to main ground in the past but it wasn't happy? can't remember.

    Been meaning to Post, keep it up, really enjoying seeing more of the processes going in that would otherwise be passed by!
  19. all good yeah thought I saw the truck roll past & nah sweet as, not much you could have done Avenger Parts man over by Racecourse didn't have the bit anyway Brent with the Honda City offered to come get but same again didnt want towie to turn up to empty car I got home bout 9
  20. I think a cop car did a loop around us just before security turned up and kicked us out. Plaza management seen the facebook event and sent out an email to security to get it shutdown. Was a pretty good turn out before that happened, maybe 20+ cars and some were pretty cool! Have sent the Plaza an email, just waiting to see what they say, otherwise we’ll have to think of somewhere else to go. Seen you parked up down Main Street, sorry we didn’t stop, didn’t know you were broken down!

    Yes, I've done all that but limited to only reserving 8. For some strange reason it isn't working for me anyway, they're being assigned new Ips no matter what reservation I'm setting for them. so far, the whole system has been working flawlessly and the only thing I have done is set the lease times to max (I think it was one week)
  22. I did my best to attend but was cut short by about 1.5km with a dead Ballast resistor (again, I'll buy new this time) and I dunno about cops, but I understand the Plaza Security did not appreciate the 'gathering' this time

    Hahahaha yeah that is plan B. Although I'd want to get it road legal so standard to start with.
