    Not too fancy, panhard with full adjustment at both ends for a lot of RCA whilst keeping bar parallel, Koni alloy bodied DA coil overs, moly links, rod ends except top arms that have one rod end and one urethane bush each to stop binding through roll travel.

    Might be throwing a floating, camber adjustable kit at the diff soon

    You'd have to save 15+kg a door easy? A standard door would be over 20kg wouldn't it? Looks incredible man.

    Yeah I would have guessed 30 for a front- they are a struggle to fit on your own. Great stuff.

    Hi Guys,

    Sorry for the lack of updates!
    Work and family have meant no time for car stuff in the last few years.....

    However, I’m back into it now. A few changes underway, nothing major, just improvements here and there. Trying to get 10-15 hours in a week on the car, was up on the 2 post all through Christmas so got a fair bit done.... I’ll post some more pics as it comes together

    Cheers,
    Brent

    Is there something in the NZ water that just makes you guys build stunningly quality, mental cars?

    Always impresses me what comes from our neighbors. Keep 'em coming (pics)

    Hey all, some work done (not as much as I had hoped)

    Xspurt 1550cc injectors in

    Platinum Racing Products crank and cam trigger kit on

    R35 coil on plug conversion underway

    Dizzy bung machined up

    New TS gen V 50mm gate with position sensor going on (old TS 50mm gate tired and diaphragm was ruptured)

    Deutsch HDP20 47 way ‘mixed’ connector mounted in firewall ready for nice removable loom to get underway.

    Still chipping away on the dreaded list....
