  1. PS. If you look carefully, you'll notice my wife was driving as well, we did half the sessions each : )
  2. So, i started to @*!# it a bit about making too much noise for the track day. A quick trip to a great local guy, https://www.facebook.com/blmotorsportfabrications, and I had a new centre pipe with a baffle section. Then @*!# it that I'd mess up the tune, all a just a few days before the track day. Thankfully Mark @Abbey Motorsport was on the case at a moments notice (and on his birthday) with some remote tuning tweaks and a couple of logging sessions. We drove to Mallory, did 20 minutes every hour, we were in groups not open pit lane, and she ran faultlessly all day. the TR1 toyos were fine, still plenty of life in them. There's not quite enough bite on the brakes, but this might be pad compound rather than the brakes, so I'm looking at options, but we were going round close to a minute, and able to have some fun, not racing, with a GT86, some of the Caterhams and a nice Golf GTI. We only really got toasted by a 600hp Audi S3 and a stripped out, caged Clio on track rubber.
  3. Thank you, it's so much fun to drive, I'm glad we saved it rather than scrapping it. If he messages me I'll send him my number if he wants a chat, we've had this one for over 12 years now and I did so much research for the build, parts source etc.. I've found a company now that might be making a drop in adjustable rear cross-member kit with way more adjustment than stock, should be good for these and the Z31.
  4. Any excuse to post up a pick of the S12. This one is from Modified Nationals at peterborough the other weekend
  5. Got lots of interest at Santa Pod : )
  6. Hopefully I'll see a few of you there tomorrow. I've got matching wheels front and rear now : )
  7. Don't get a Nissan Mainstealer to do it, go to a specialist, I take mine to Abbey Motorsport in Oxted from Leicester. If it's already been done, there should be some paperwork from a previous owner. I just notice you mentioned an exhaust, is that with stock CATs? I'm pretty sure if you've gone with HFCs or test pipes, you're supposed to get a remap as well for it to run right?
  8. Random guesses: Have you checked fluid levels on everything? Brake fluid being low can cause odd behaviour. Have you had the oil gallery gaskets done? If I understand correctly, this can lead to the variable valve timing system not working correctly, could that have this effect?
  9. Wow, this is such and incredible build. Love it.
  10. There were a few Nissan interlopers ; ) I took my VQ35DE swapped S12 👍
  11. Great run out and great to catch up with people and meet some new enthusiasts : ) Top work again @davey_83 👍
  12. I agree with @Payco, it doesn't matter how much you pay, they pretty much always need some fettling. I'd almost argue buy cheap and spend the money getting a decent bodyshop to make them fit nicely.
  13. My mate works for Nissan UK. I'm sure if you really wanted one it would be possible.
  14. I'm on the SXOC stand now, hopefully see some Zedders there : )
  15. Got my transmission cooler on the low pressure return from the rack, bled it out and just need to mod my bash guard/undertray as I've lost some fixings, so going to use stainless rivnuts to make sure it's nice and solid. Then it's Mallory : )
  16. Hi, Looks great. Mines a 2009GT Ultimate, so Sat Nav bluetooth calls only and no touch screen, do I keep all the functionality of the stock system, so do I see cab temps etc when I turn the heat up and down? Thanks in anticipation : )
  17. @davey_83 Yup, pepper pots on my D reg popular plus fiesta.....
  18. You'll get to love the racecar vibes
  19. My favourite colour for the 350z
  20. Sim

    Clutch help

    Could be the master, I was in a similar position and swapped out the master, not had the issue since, although will go with a relocation kit next time it's apart.
  21. @valy what the actual model, is there a install kit with all the gaskets and fixings that I can buy? Whats the brackets that needs welding, I can't see anything on the pictures. Will it go on a roadster. I think Lorn would love it with stock cats for some fruit and to annoy the neighbours
