    Got a price on some AR-1 s in 225/40 17 for $170 ea which is pretty sharp I thought.

    Still have to organise brake pads, the rotors look ok. Wheel alignment too.

    It has the ďsportĒ interior so the seats arenít bad but when budget allows a good chair will come in.

    Needs a diet tho it came in at 1280kg with a full tank.

      progress has been slow.

      got the front and rear crossmembers all braced up, new rear trailing arm bushes and limiters, dodgied up the front end with longer bolts and some strategic washers for more cambers. 2nd hand ad08rs on all 4 corners and new pads and braided lines. castrol srf fluid.

      RWC this week then stripping the interior of all not essential bits and putting some kms on it before a khanacross at the local hillclimb later this month.

      undecided whether to weld the diff up.



      running proper orange indicators now. not that gross shit in the pic.

        Every time one of these threads comes up I think what am I doing spending 10k a year running an old Falcon around, granted it still is bloody good fun but the numbers on these kind of fun cheap builds makes perfect sence.

          Weíll see how she goes once itís on track. I think itíll be ok-ish.

          Gonna need a proper seat sooner than Iíd hoped, car has a sunroof so with a helmet on I donít have much room in there.

          255 rears scrub the outer arch but that shouldnít be hard to fix.

              dude down at the track I go to has one (albeit a 2 door)with a moo in it. Seems to go okay.

              Apparently it is pretty much a straight bolt in job. He reckoned it was a few hours work.

                The other week on RS-3's I managed a 1:42 around Winton in our lemon.

                One other thing to look at is the rear shock top mounts, we punched our rubber ones through so swapped to metal and no issues since.

                  Registered now.

                  Haunted Hills next weekend. Still havenít got a proper seat in the car, so my head is just about in the roof with a helmet on.

                  Should get the welder on the diff

                      For this event itís a round of that Nugget Nationals which is under AASA but they have monthly motorkhana out there which is under some type of CAMS licence for a $20 entry as far as I know.

                      My car isnít a ďnugget specĒ car because itís over 1.5 litres or whatever but you can still enter.

                      Just hope I donít bin it.

                        just realised your bimmer has the next plate along from the navara.


                        got a link for next weekend, keen to see what the nav can do.

                            Managed 6th/51 today at Bryant Park. Good to meet Sloth and Lightyear.

                            Had some issues with brakes at the end of the day and the diff needs a lot of welding.

                            Too much single pegger.

                              Got a mate to fill the diff up, wonít be long until I get some times to compare it against the open diff.

                              Surely itíll be better.

                                Yep, it will be better. You *might* find it's more inclined to understeer, especially on initial turn in. Get ready to add more rear roll stiffness ie sway bar.

                                This is an outstanding effort for a $1,000 car - how much do you reckon it owes you now?
