    So we did a bit of an alignment and were ready for the grand open day at driftland. "basicly the second test of the car"

    [​IMG]

    After the first run of the first day we struck a problem oil leaking out the front crank seal

    [​IMG]

    I can only put this down to lack of lubricant on the oil seal on assemblie must have just burned threw!

    big thanks to my cheif mechanic we drove 3 hours back home to get the new seal and three hours back to drift land and 2 hours to change the seal

    we cant have done it without the removable front end

    So managed to get a few runs on the sunday

    [​IMG]


    Car went well was slowly gaining confidence last run i got it upto third and smashed the gearbox!!!!!


    [​IMG]

    Make things worse i broke the winch on the trailer trying to load the car at the end of the day!!!!

    All in all driftland grand open day was really cool and it was so worth the work getting the car ready and dealing with all the problems at the track

    I was out on track with jullian smith

    Thanks to all my friends coming along to support us had a lot of smilling pasangers upto the point of gearbox destruction!!!

    merry Christmas from project 307

    I found the cylinder head on the rb to be defective water was mixing with the oil. the head is at RB motorsport being machined and pressure tested and while there im having a set of tomi pon cams fitted.

    Nothing really to report other than my new custom body work

    Anyone no ware I can get a custom high level bgw that will fit to the chassis rather than the boot lid of my silvia?

    turbo is to big to be honest im going to have to down size and I think the oil got so hot the last run the oil got to thin and the big end went so back to the drawing board again

    Great photoshoot that! :) Everything is top quality, good job man!!! :D Get your self a basic standard mx5, basic mods (shout me if you want) come down to crail with Pete and I and we'll get you twinning in it. Trust me, when you get back into this s14 you'll be doing hero skids all day long ;)

    Seriously though, thats my advice :) Its taught me almost everything I know. Considering Datsuns are more broken than drifted it would be a wise idea to get that practice in ya know.
