Aerodynamics | Paint & Panel / Question for Tauranga people
« on: September 03, 2012, 05:12:39 PM »
Who in Tauranga does gaurd rolling?

1. What tyres are useing at the moment?

2. What do you fine them and do you like them?

3. Would you use them again?

4. What tyres in the past you have like and would use again?

Off-Topic / Is anyone
« on: July 10, 2012, 09:24:44 PM »
coming down from Auckland to Tauranga Friday or over the weekend? And would be able to pick up set of rims with tyres on them and bring them down? Will give you money for gas.

Tools needed are:

•Small flat head screw driver
•phillips screw driver
•10mm,12mm and 14mm long socket
•14mm spanner
•1/4 inch drive rachet & extensions
•Gentle hands the better

Frist you need to remove all the side bits of the interior and the rear section of the hood lining, You might be lucky to get away with not remove the front part as you only need to squeeze your 12mm socket with it extensions up to undo the nuts but if yours Stagea has got sunroof's, You have a bracket you need to take off before you can undo the nuts and it hell alot easyer to take the roof lining out.

Once you have undone the nuts, pull the rails off, they may need a little assistance as the have been on there a long time. Once they off, You have 10 holes that need to be fill in and 6 rectangular holes in the panels aswell.


without sunroof

with sunroof



I have used nuts and bolts with a old bit of tube to fill in my holes

And for now I have just put black tape over the panel holes

It all water tight what the mean thing.

This is how mine looks now

Stagea's look alot better without the rails. But i think they could have a spoiler on the rear.

Tools needed are

    •Small flat head screw driver
    •Phillips screw driver
    •12mm long(tube) socket (preferrably 1/4 inch drive)
    •14mm spanner
    •1/4 inch drive rachet & extensions
    •Gentle hands always good.

Frist remove the side tirms from back to front, remove the rear hood lining and you might able to get away from letting the front part just hanging down to get front nuts but if you have a sunroof, It be easyer to take the whole lot out as you have bracket remove before you get to the nut the for roof. racks. Is a total of 10 nuts to be undone, Only need a tube socket for the 4 at the rear.

Once all the nuts undone, The rails should just pull off, They may need little assistance as the have been on there a long time. Once the rails are off, You will have total of 10 hole and also 6 rectangular holes in the panels which will need to be filled.


Without sunroof

With sunroof



I will update once I have finish mine and how i full up the holes.

General Performance / Lock up stutter
« on: April 21, 2012, 09:49:02 PM »
For just about the last year i've had a lock up stutter with my auto box, End up replacing it early this year but it still does a stutter when in overdrive. We replace both gear box and torque converter. We have put some stutter fix oil in but doesn't seem to done anythink to it. The overdrive button itself has crap out and someone said could it be the overdrive button causeing the problem? and i ask my mate about it, He said he never heard that before but it could be. Still got to replace the overdrive button.

Has anyone one a problem with a lock up stutter before?

We pretty much out of ideas what could be wrong, Only things we can be thinking of doing now is 1, sending the old torque converter to be cut open and seeing what wrong with it or 2. just doing manual conversion

Edit to say......
I forgot to say the stutter only start up atfer about 20 or so minutes of driving
