Picture Post / Vivians BNR32
« on: March 06, 2012, 05:53:24 PM »
Hi, I am currently in the process of creating a BNR32 race car/tarmac rally car.

This is a result of me writing off my previous RS Legacy rally car near Danniverke on the last day of Targa 2011.

Car went from this:





To this:







Basically I misjudged a blind crest, went over it at around 150km/hr and found it went left. We hit a rather solid strainer post at 120km/hr and flipped end over end. Car was too bent to recover unfortunately...

The new car is a combined effort between myself and my brother. He bought it as a crashed shell a couple of years back and has slowly rebuilt it including welding on a new left rear quarter and replacing most of the damaged panels.

Its currently RWD with an RB25DET box, RB30 block, 25DE head and manifolds and a hybrid TD06/7 turbo. But most of this is due to change with time.

I picked the car up looking like this:





The car was originally white, but most of the panels were replaced with gunmetal parts due to lack of available white panels. Also there is MASSIVE crazing in the original white paint work, so its all in the process of getting stripped back and resprayed in white again:



Primering was started last week:




And I have also stripped the interior out in readiness for the cage install:

SDU Central / Drags - MMP 2nd/3rd Feb?
« on: January 22, 2008, 08:07:34 PM »
Anyone going over to watch? From what I can understand of the rather crap MMP website its only people competing in the national series that can enter? Ie no street jap class am I right...?

And no, Im not racing the custard square - I cant afford another rebuild!

SDU Central / Trackday
« on: September 06, 2007, 10:32:17 AM »
From Roger of MMC:

"We (MMC) are running a single car circuit sprint at Taupo on the 6th
of October. The circuit to be used is track 3 which is the small
1.3km one. This event will be followed by our club AGM which should
involve dinner, etc. This will be run as a social event with a little
bit of competition and a lot of fun built in.

Entry fee is $90 if paid before the 29th of September. $20 extra if
paid after this date. To enter email me
(barnesroge@student.vuw.ac.nz)."

This event is run by MMC, which is a MSNZ affiliated club. So cars will need to comply to Schedule A, cars with roll protection will be required in the Suplementary Regs to be homolgated etc, including halfcages. As MMC is MSNZ affiliated, all competitors will be required to be a member of a MSNZ affiliated club too. (MMC membership for one year is only $30 and can be done online via their website).

This is a good chance to experience the track in a lowkey event, on a nice safe and new track.

I will be there, but in an official capacity, not a blow my engine capacity this time ;)

SDU Central / skids...
« on: July 03, 2007, 06:48:10 AM »
well that got your attention!

Just to let people know there is an Autocross on at Slipway this coming Saturday, great safe enviroment in which to give your car some juice and compete against others to see just how fast you really are!

Should have a minimum of 4 runs, although last time I had 10 I think? For those that arent familiar with this sort of events, its set at the Brooklyn drift track and its a timed lap or two round a series of corners setup to challenge you in a safe enviroment without the expense or hazards of going to a track like Manfield, each run is done one car at a time and the speed isnt really high enough to wear out brake pads, cause overheating etc.

Full details are at:

http://www.mmc.org.nz/forum/viewtopic.php?t=51505

But basically, $30 and a helmet and overalls will see you out playing. No need for a fire extinguisher. And if you want to play and dont have helmet/overalls I maybe able to help there too :-) I will be there helping out in various capacitys and am always happy to help people who are new.

Its about time some people showed Skylines arent just about skids and drag racing!

SDU Central / Manfield this weekend....
« on: June 27, 2007, 10:17:35 AM »
I know its short notice, but if anyone is keen, there is a track day on there this sunday, run by HVMC.

Scrutineering 6 to 8pm tomorrow night at Total Performance. Entry $100.

Require helmet, overalls and fire extinguisher.

I will be out playing if anyone else comes along, either to spectate or play. And am happy to convoy up with fellow wellingtonians etc if you like.

SDU Central / Good Idea?
« on: June 12, 2007, 04:47:06 PM »
Just saw this.... http://www.skylinesdownunder.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55521

I suggest this would be a good idea for all that dont already have one. Afterall look at what happened to Falg's car a while back. Also means your set for the odd play at Manfield etc. I have one in all my cars, but I think I might put one of these in the Legacy as the current one isnt bolted in.

PS - Im more than happy to help fellow wgtn members with installation :)

Thanks to Ben at the Slipway in Wellington, SDU finally had a few cars up there letting loose, the guys havent graduated to the full track yet - but they were up there and practicing - which will hopefully become a regular thing!

Pics to follow shortly, including some sadist abusing a family station wagon attempting to grip race :D

SDU Central / Wgtn Interclub Meet - Confirmed 13/04 at 9pm
« on: March 27, 2007, 09:21:06 AM »
*EDIT* - meet at 9pm - Warehouse Lyall Bay Carpark - 13/04/07.

This is something Ive talked to a few people from different clubs about after the recent NZPC photoshoot, so I thought I would put this out as a general idea.

The general thought seems to be that as a cruise/meet the idea is great, however a more organised setup and also not having people doing silly stuff, ie skids etc.

So at this stage Im wanting to find out how many people would be keen to do something along the lines of a meet with other Wellington clubs - so the idea being that its not an exclusive thing, but more aimed at the local clubs hanging out together and getting to know each other etc.

If its something that would interest you - would you have a preference on a day of week/time and what other clubs etc? Once I have an idea of whether this is something worth doing, we can have a look at what exactly could happen for the meet.

I will be posting this up on other forums that Im a club member of too.

Thanks

Vivian
