il spot u a box of ya choice for an alignment tehehe

haha what I should really do is get my mate to teach me how to use the damn thing then I could actually help myself out as well as a few people here.

current problem is I don't think my mate will be so impressed with me if he has to do the alignment and I drink the piss hahahaha

cool i just picked up one myself and looking to do the same thing. keep me posted on what you do to your ride :)

Don't know if anyone has made a quick guide for posting photos on SDU forums from Photobucket but I thought I would quickly make one anyway so us new guys / girls can post photos with our introduction.

First guide for me so go easy

Step 1: Open your browser and in your address bar type

This window will appear and if you do not have an account you will need to quickly make one. If you have one, sign in.

Step 2: Click on the green ''Upload now" button

On the left hand side of the page there is an "Upload from" text with the drop down menu next to it. You need to select the area you wish to upload your photos from (most of the time it will be from My Computer).

Step 3:
Click on the big green button in the middle of the page "Select photos and videos"

A new window will pop up for you to select your photos from. Search for your photo/s (you can upload more than one photo at a time), select them and click "Open"

Your photo/s will begin to upload to Photobucket and the screen will look like this while this is happening

Once the photo or all the photos have finished uploading you will see this screen

You can view the photo/s by clicking on the "View album" button or you can continue to upload more by clicking on the "Upload more"button

Step 4:
If you are going to post photos in the form of a reply to a post you need to click the "Go advanced" button underneath the quick reply window... get to this screen below
NB: If you are creating a thread this window will come up automatically

Once you're in this screen you need click on the picture button. This is the little yellow square with the mountain and the sun in it, underneath the undo / back arrow button. This will bring up the URL box shown below

This box is only for pasting URL links to photos [on the internet]
To find the URL a.k.a the direct link for your photo on Photobucket, let your mouse hover over the photo you wish to link and a drop down menu will appear, shown below

Left click next to the "Direct link" text on the web address and the box will temporarily change it's text to "Copied"
Paste (Ctrl+v) this URL into the URL box on the SDU forums. Hit "Ok" and the next screen you see should look like this

When you have completed your post your images will show up on the thread (you can preview your post to check this)

I hope this helps anyone trying to upload photos from photobucket.

Any advise or constructive criticism about my thread or instructions will be appreciated, cheers

oh **** matey, it was ment to be please get a wheel alignment

yeah we got a wheel alignment machine here at work so i should be able to get on no probs

Quote from: con-air;568327
Get a cheap open diff and lock it up, it will cost less than buying an lsd then shimming it up for it to only wear out again eventually. You can't beat a decent locked diff if you wanna do skids on the cheap.

I think it's something I'll definitely try. At least if it breaks (unlikely) it wont cost much to replace

Quote from: R33_dan;568391
hey thanks for the reply. what you've outlined there is really helpful thanks. i think it will take a while to get the right set up with all the tweaking required but i'm sure it will come right yea. my friend is a wheel alignment dude so maybe once i get some bit and have them installed i can muck around with the setting with him and ill be sure to take your specs along too and see how i go.

so what diff do you recommend?
are the rack spacers for great steering lock?
are you in akl? i wouldn't mind coming to have a look at your set up at some stage - what do you think?

Diff - Nismo 2 way. There expensive but great. On the cheap my mates have all run welded open diffs with no problem. Just be careful driving them. Shimming hell out of a viscus diff will be tight as on the street. Get some heat into it drifting and they all end up the same. At least with a locker its predictably going to spin both for you. Nothing worse than a car 1 wheeling at 160k sideways........

Rack spacers- Yea extra lock. You'll need it

Na I'm not in Auckland mate, I'm in Paihia bay of islands. Cars off the road getting some mods n **** done. Need to do brakes really. May be down at a meet sometime

ok I'll check out the nismo diff. any particular brand of rack spacers that suit rb's/skylines well or can i just use anything?

yeah man will be good to meet ya and check out your car to see what you got going on :)

haha yeah bro i have a thing with tow bars. most of the cars I've owned have come with them, it's super random / scary! (MK2 Escort, Corolla KE30, Subaru Liberty, Datsun Sunny, and Skyline have ALL had tow bars when i bought them) so funny i recon :)

but as you say, it could come in handy....
