World time attack 2010 came around I had my car in the NSCC club display not that I really though it was show car worthy but we got a good club deal and it was a nice close place to park and it fitted in with the JDM theme. A car that really changed my perception of what a 180SX could and should be was Wanyes 180. This thing had some serious styling and is hell fast. I was and still are blown away by the attention to detail on both this and later his brothers car, serious dedication.
Had had the NSCC day the weekend before. This was the first superlap with all the international cars. Was an awesome event!
A short clip I took of Wanyes car at WTAC2010. Clean on a whole new level.
Before the upcoming NSCC day I ditched the old rotors which came with the brakes and fitted some new stoptech slotted two piece curved vein fronts and dba4000 slotted rears. The car also got treated to a reconditioning of the steering rack (it had developed some play) and some new upgraded tein rods/rod ends. I also shelled out for a new set of the whiteline ball joints. These worked much better and are sealed OEM style so should last alot longer too. I also ordered some new track rims while I was at it.
I finally shelled out for some bigger cams and valve springs I picked them up in a kit for a decent price. Andrew came around and I helped him with the install. We had to rig up the air compressor to hold the valves up while we had the retainers out. Worked a treat though. I wish I had of installed the cam gear aswell though because the timing on the greddy cams seems to be slightly out and cost me more bottom end power than they really should have.
I also got my hands on some corner weight scales and learned how to use them. I could feel the difference afterwards as well the car felt much better with just the driver in it.
Bought some new dunlop direzzas which I hated. Would never buy these again. =/
The biggest thing was getting some avs track wheels doing a dogey spray can job on them and fitting up a set of brand new 235/45/17 RE55S tyres. These were unreal to drive on compared to anything else I’d driven on. The grip levels were amazing and I really punished the R33GTST brakes I had on the front. Managed to boil the fluid by the end of the first track day. =) The DS2500 pads I had in were not really up to the task either giving me some shudder later on. The colour was pretty damn bright. There was an equal amount of lovers and haters
Random skidpan image. I cant really remember where this slots in so here it stays
The C’s short shifter was sold and replaced with a standard Item. It was much nicer to shift with on the track with the standard Item even with the throw being much larger the other was just too short. (imho)
