    I think angle/speed could be associated more with alignment, setup and driving. Maybe post the video? Currently I run a welded centre however that was only due to saving money at the time, I will move to a 2 way and change ratio soon. A quick look at yahoo shows new diff centres starting at ~¥80,000 and complete used 4.3 diffs with mechanical centre for a fair bit less. Has anyone had experience with shipping complete diffs? Also included these old charts, got caught out once with the Crown wheel bolt size.
  3. I'm 15 and looking for a good car to start out with. I found an e90 bmw 330 and a e21 bmw 320. Which would be the best to start out with?

    Making it legal

    I suppose here in QLD it is common to have a modplate for some things, such as 2 seats instead of 4 etc. But I've heard of people getting everything including coilovers done. That is my intention, even though I probably won't drive the car that much. Part of that plan will be to change to an AGI cage, remove tint and do a big tidy up.

    Making it legal

    Might be dependent on state (NSW here) but I've got a mate with an S14 with fibreglass overs front and rear, 5 stud 17/18 stagger, fixed back, 300kw SR20DET - essentially every mod under the sun. The car has previously been red-labelled and since then he's obviously gotten it fixed. When he got it back on the road he decided to get every mod he could engineered so as to never face that problem again. Unfortunately I can't remember what exactly he has engineered on the car. It just so happened that about 6 months after he got the car back on the road, he got pulled over when grabbing me one day. Clocked at 15 over I think and on full pelt when the HWP officer saw him. He produced the engineer's cert when pulled over and he got let off with a yellow label for the exhaust as he blew some smoke when he got on boost - I couldn't believe it as we pulled away from the curb. Now had that happened with an un-engineered car, I daresay he would have gotten red labelled again - maybe he passed the attitude check, I'm not sure but I definitely think it's a wise thing to do if you intend to drive your car to events or you enjoy driving your car every now and then on the weekend or something. I intend on getting both my cars engineered when the time comes.

    Making it legal

    I have been thinking a lot lately about registration and engineering my S13. There are a fair few people with rego'd drift cars, however I am wondering if anyone has gone to the effort of having modifications engineered and how that has worked out. Obviously the normal/major things can be modplated, but I have heard of coilovers, rose jointed arms etc. What about things like fiberglass panels and so on? tldr: who has modplated everything and has it helped with street use.

    Jesus! Hope you heal up well, that sounds fucking horrible. I haven't been to boomers yet but a mate goes most weeks and is at me to go. I'm useless at jumping so keen to get there and get some progression in. First ride on new tyres yesterday (dhf/dhr combo) and it felt like a new bike. My old tyres came on the bike and were sooooo fucked but I didn't really know any difference. Braking performance was the first thing I noticed, then in other bits I was waaaaay inside on stuff because the old tyres would've just washed me wide. Going to take a few rides to get used to but so much better. Bought shit to go tubeless too so I'll do that one weekend. Missus is on maternity leave now so don't have to be done in time to pick the young bloke up, should average about 60kms a week now.

    Well, Ive been training, training and training hard and riding with loads of my mates (pros/Been riding For years etc) as I wanted to race this years qld enduro series With them. Unfortunatly I drew the luck of the short straw. The day before the first round was to be held at boomers. I just so happen to wreck my shit, mate infront of me scrubbed the jump and put a rock clean into my line (easy 20-30ft double-high speed) I hit it just from following too closely and lack of reaction time, ended up going Through the air doing a front flip but also parallel to the ground landed pretty badly on the side of my face and rolling a few times and stopped on a tree. We originally planned on just having a chill day cause we knew we were all racing the next day So Ppe was minimal (literally just a helmet). That didn’t happen as a few others were there and the vibes were stoked. got knocked out for 7-10 seconds, when I came to it I ended up staying where I was laying down as I could feel pins and needles on the inside of my legs and I was winded badly. My mates diverted everyone pretty quickly thanks to being a busy trail on weekends. I couldn’t move my right arm or wiggle my toes and felt like I had no strength. Ended up getting ambos to hospital. Straight away got the neck brace on and they tied me to a stretcher. So got to the hospital and to keep it short I ended up with a broken eye socket, busted ear drum, broken right scapula, dislocated right shoulder, 4 broken ribs on my RH back side, L4 bone contusion and an L5 fracture. A lot of pinched nerves through my pelvic region. A lot, and I mean a lot of deep bruising on my body aswell as a lot of skin off everywhere and a nasty laceration on my leg. Got 14 stitches and had them taken out after 14 days, but due to the nature of the where the cut is 2 days later attempting to drive pushing the clutch in I tore it open again so back to square one. Unfortunatly I have no photos of anything because of covid no one was allowed in the emergency with me. It sucks, it truly does but these things take time to heal and tbh you gotta have a big dig to realise where you are mentally and physically. Been a rough few weeks but the future is looking bright and I’m on the mend. I’m itching to get back out there I miss it. But anywho, finally went tubeless and went to DH spec tyres. Wanted to try something different, hopefully the heavier Tyre will help with chatter in gravel situations.
  10. I think by the time i read this and got to the garage i measured the wrong things. but i got both things available and out of the car and currently doing a lot of measurement things/hybrid setup I will be up your way next week (EFI hardware) so can bring around if you need or feel free to come around here. edge of hole to edge of hole, seemed to be the same for every one but to be honest i only checked three Height Hole size But yeah check out the bin chicken thread if you want more measurements as i have found some detailed drawings of X8 stuff.
  11. G'day, Any chance anyone has an MX83 diff or axle out of the car that could measure the diff to axle flange PCD and diameter, height, etc of any centric ring within it? Likewise with a 370Z (or 350Z) diff or axle? Melbourne lockdown restrictions are making my life easy to go out and measure things, so if anyone has one of these diffs or axles out of a car and a set of verniers that would be superb. Gracias.

    Thats how I imagined myself going on a regular ride when I went from 26in to 29in 😅😅 Turns out magpie season started today. Same route to work and first time having a friend flying with me for a few blocks haha

    On the topic of gumbyness.... In my defence it was my first time on this trail. Confidence grew until it quickly exceeded talent. 27.5 front sus GT. That thing was a heavy pig but it took a beating Pics of the replacement previously mentioned. Male model is more proud of it than i am

    What diff do you guys run? I have a shimmed r200 in my 32. Was watching some GoPro footage from my last QR drive and I reckon it's holding me back from angle/speed due to the wheels not spinning at equal speeds. It's worked fine until recently. On turn 6 at QR for example, kicking the clutch in third does not push the rear out and let me use more steering. It seems to be struggling under the load. Traditional upgrade is a 1.5/2way. Decent used parts for all S/R chassis are hard to come across nowadays though. I'm tempted to just weld it up. Is there actually any benefit to a mechanical centre over welded? Keep in mind the car is track only. Cheers
  15. +1 for all these shops. Pushys usually is unbeatable for price, if you can't find what you need, try the others mentioned. My local Giant looks after me really well too after spending a stack on my pushy. Usually helps getting to know your local shops manager too, mine turned out to be a mad dog so that was a bonus. Iphone pic of my bike for boredom's sake

    Pushys and my direct for local stuff. There's bikebug, cyclingdeal and the bicycle store too but pushys is in brissie, can have things next day sometimes. Biggest one is Wiggle/Chain Reaction Cycles but they're UK so depends what you're after and how patient you are. I got a dropper post from wiggle the other month and only took a week still.

    I was looking at chopping that off haha. But I already want another set of wheels so I can have a spare set with smoother tyres for the rides to work as its mostly smooth apart from some short cuts through some parks and keep these for some trails. What shops do you guys use for buying parts?

    Chop that bloody dork disc off the back Joey. No style points for that. I thought it would be cheap too but even just the consumables from all of our trails being sand/silt adds up, then the shit I break because I'm a retard, then the cool shit you rent, my $500 bike is probably more of a $1200 so far. Good fun though. I average about 40kms a week but that could quickly come down to zero with a baby due in three weeks.

    I bought mine for a bit of fun and riding to and from work but now I'm starting to see how addictive and expensive this hobby can become haha Here's my basic rig, done a good 100km so far and it hasn't killed me and now I've started looking at stuff you can buy

    Picked mine up today, got new chain, cassette and BB put on. It used to try eat the derailleur if I tried for the big ring which sucked. Keen to see how much nicer it is to ride. I'm hoping I can get a Tewantin camping/riding trip in next year. Looks like a cool set of trails.
  21. Velo gp90 110% best seat for big and small. Drove my tall fat ass to Raleigh and back and my back felt better than a 20 min trip in my daily lmao.
  22. Hey blokes, just wondering if anyone has an recommendations for fat boy bucket seats. I had a racetech in one of my previous cars and it was awesome, but just after some opinions on what is suited for the bigger fella’s. (I’m like 6’ & 130kg)
  23. Yo, I've got a fixie and/or dually mountain bike if anyone is down for bike hangs around Tewantin/Noosa area. Happy to show anyone around ✌️
