Was talking about the rack, not the pump. But cheers guys. Gonna use the power steering lines that were running to the rear hicas to make up the new lines. Know a good way to go about flaring ends after I cut up the pipe?

So all my steering gear is back on. Have a problem with the a31 tie rods being a tad short though as the rack ends are only on each tie rod by 3 full turns. I'm going to get the GKtech offset rack spacers as it will give me the eaxtra thread to put the rack ends on more for peace of mind & they will also imitate moving the rack forward by 25mm to help binding up so win-win. The lock is going to be the best I can get without modifying the knuckle itself so will need to cut some inner gaurding out & probably weld on new lock stops. But it looks good! More drift days coming up soon for me.





Solid mounted steering rack. I can tighten the bracket on more but want to do it graudally so I don't wreck the steering rack. Wonder if there will be any difference.

Zac Pole showed me how to do this & said just doing the one side pretty much locks it in so you can leave the odd shaped one with the rubber surround thing.

Great progress so far, must feel great having it out on the track! Ive seen a few photos pop up on Facebook from events, would love to be able to do similar with the Laurel but kinda hard while Im at school haha


Bro skidpan will only set you back. 60-70 bux. It doesn't murder tyres either.  Think of it this way. The fine you get from doing it on the street will outweigh the fee to skid your car all day legally.

Agreed, the Laurel isn't exactly skid material yet, hoping to get an extra 3x2 open diff welded up to skid during the skidpan days. The only thing that stops me from giving it a crack is the diff ($$$), the fee in general ($$$) and that I want to pay out to get everything serviced on it again, as well as tidy some things up here and there ($$$). Running on $200 a week from part-time work, with some of that going on living costs it's hard to have the spare dosh for it. But that should change in the near future hopefully. :)

As a comment directed at the original topic, loving the modifications to the Skyline so far, it's interesting seeing what goes onto a track car that makes it a lot better at doing what it's built to do, especially the steering set-up. Keen to see more updates in regards to that :)

Sending away my Homologation stuff this week. Pictures can be found at the link. In the mean time, scuff down my whole interior & get ready to paint it all gold! Be out Hampton on 22nd & 23rd of November. Heaps of new stuff on the car so will feel a bit different.

One concern is your intrusion bar looks to be more than 100mm away from footing other than that good job

The requirement is that intrusion bar can not be more than half of total door aperature at front or rear. There is nothing noted in MSNZ guidelines about the intrusions having to be 100mm from Lateral footing plate.

Your right it now says it's recommended to be attached to the footing plate when intrusion forms an x it used to say within 100mm a few years ago lol

When I do another cage I would weld floor plates on rear strut tower. Those wheel wells are paper thin so don't weld nicely.  Had to weld 3mm plate underneath wheel well to weld to and for better attachment.
