the gem is in the shed still, selling my old daily AE94 rolla and replaced it with this, as for skid vids it is an auto with no way of holding it in 1st gear so still working out how to do one, hopefully have some footage from a time attack day at lakeside and take it to the drags eventually.


Cheers

well i got myself a 6 speed box for this so will be able to use the TRD flywheel soon, just got to get the rest of the gear for it. The front lip is looking a little second hand so was going to get it resprayed along with the front bar but was thinking of possibly getting it vinyl wrapped in CF like Gigantor928 did with he race cars bonnet instead and possibly do the skirts and rear lip as well......thoughts?



Cheers
Matt

so got told that I can't get a rebuild kit for my shocks because you need proprietary tooling to fit some of the seals :rolleyes: I work in the hydraulic cylinder bay for the caterpillar dealer in qld pretty sure I have access to more than enough tooling to fit the seals.......any way another of the issues was regassing them as they had no schraeder valves in them so to solve that problem I bought these:


Image



and am getting this machined out and tapped at work


Image


so that this can fit in the base of the shock tube so I can regas them with nitrogen :)

Image


and then I am going to the place work uses to organise non-cat seals to get a seal kit made up for me :D

I like. Much more aggressive and nicer looking than a chaser. You'll have to do the 2j conversion now ;)
