  1. I'm using one on my RB25 and it is nothing short of amazing. All the problems with stuttering and reverb are gone. It made 293rwkw in an 80mm Apexi housing and still had more in it I believe.
  2. Putting my much loved Cefiro up for sale to fund the purchase of a rally car and I unfortunately don’t have space to keep both. I’ve had the car for about 3.5 years and have spent that time fixing and improving things and have only taken it to 2 hill climbs and 1 Winton day since owning it. Perfect turnkey track car for grip or drift events. It’s got a couple of things done to it so here goes… Located in Melton, 3337 Check the FB link for photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153030324752897.1073741828.521242896&type=1&l=e1f1920830 Price: $11,500 1988 A31 Cefiro – sunroof model Currently registered on Vic Club Permit Has been compiled and can be registered Also has old engineers certificates for the RB25 conversion, wheels and to register as a 2 seater which are valid in NSW ENGINE / GEARBOX Series 2 RB25det gearbox with new speedo sender NPC button clutch and center bearing replaced at the time of fitting (approx. 20ks) Completely rebuilt series 2 rb25det engine.

  3. Price : $1,800 Condition : Used Rear: 18 x 10.5 +5 (running 8mm spacer in photo) Front: 18 x 9.5 +30 (running 45mm spacer in photo) These wheels came with my Cefiro but I am looking to get the car rego'd in the near future so going to get something smaller for street driving. They seem to be quite rare in AU as I couldn't find any current or old listings online, only US/Asia listings. The wheels drive great (drove back from QLD to VIC with them) and will require a spacer to clear R33 brakes. Currently got a 8mm spacer on the rear for calliper clearance. There is a bit of gutter rash on them but all in all they are in good condition.

    Quick update. Haven't done much with the car recently. I sold the bolt in cage out of it so I can get a CAMS cage made up for some events this year. Picked up some pieces to neaten the car up - S2 lights, front kick panels and a dash surround. Old S1 lights: Added S2 lights. Amazing how much better the S2 lights make the car look.
  5. Calder Park Raceway shutting for good?

    Found this on the Calder Park site from 21/12. The last line sounds very promising!
  6. Hi all, Can anyone tell me what these wheels are called? Saw them years ago and wouldn't mind tracking down a set.
  7. welding bench ideas

    Yeh plate is expensive. Mine was about 1.2 x 0.8 6mm and ended up getting it for ~$90 cut to size. Was the most expensive part of my bench. I mounted mine on lockable castors so I can move it around too.
  8. Cefiro #3

    Definitely an addiction - especially with this many tasty mods! Kris - plan is to keep it for a track car for now, then go for club rego next year. 2013, a wonderful year for 1988 model imports
  9. Cefiro #3

    Hi chaps, Back again with another cefiro. Wanted to get something with most of the work already done to save my hip pocket. Found this ceffy up in QLD, got it for a good price and drove it home with a mate over the weekend. In hindsight, I should have done some things to it before driving it home. End result was 1 blown coilover, having to buy 2 tires and swap the stockies on to stop scraping. After driving the thing for 26 hrs (18 hrs in 1 day) it is performing well so far. Doesn't need much done, just going to get the tune checked out, get a new drivers seat and hit up some events. Enjoy....

  10. Just saw this on the news and suddenly took notice when I heard Robbie Bolger mentioned.... http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/m-holden-engine-scam-accused-organising-false-documents-court-told/story-fndo471r-1226455685307 SEVEN people accused of stealing $2.5 million of parts from Holden are still contacting one another to create false documents, a court has heard. Professional stunt driver Robin Gerald Bolger and his six co-accused faced the Elizabeth Magistrates Court this morning. They have yet to plead to allegations they took part in the multi-million dollar theft between January 2010 and December 2011. Today, police prosecutor Senior Constable Greg Hill asked all seven of the accused sign new bail agreements banning them from having contact. He said the case would be based on 20,000 telephone intercepts.
  11. Pedo Bear and American news

    Give it a few weeks and this will an "exclusive" story based on a "thorough investigation" on TT or ACA lol

    *sigh* This must be American - any one else could hazard a guess (or logically realise) why the poo is different from each animal. Nominating this for worst post in the Joke section!
  13. ADGP Round 1 review

    GOOD: No down time at any point during the day. Decent commentary kept you in the loop about what was happening. Great battles A real man's layout BAD: OMFG - Can't see shit!! Could barely see the cars from the spectators area until they got onto the banked section. Kinda ruined the point of having wall scrape action. 10 foot wire fence was very friendly and made for some awesome blurry photos - Maybe I will bring my own cage next time to hang out in? Set up proper portable grandstands for everyone and it will be a good event. My 2c.
