Just a heads up to any of you that may not know. NSCC is having their first ever Eastern Creek trackday combined with the HSV Club to be held on Saturday the 2nd of June. NSCC is a non profit cams car club a great and inexpensive way to get out on the track and let off some steam. There a great group of people ranging from novice to seasoned drivers making it a great place to start out.
Head over to their site here its not too late to get in!
So we finally started stripping the car in the gaps when nfi’s car was off getting tuned or we were waiting for something to be done before we could start on the next thing.
Took some quick shots of the car before I started but lighting was bad and the workshop was messy in the lead up to WTAC so space was limited.
The first task was to remove the body kit to allow easier access to the rest of the car for strippage and so it doesn’t get damaged during the process. At this stage the same kit + a new front bar was to be going back on the car as funding wouldn’t stretch enough to allow me the luxury of a new kit and paint. This has kinda started spiraling out of control now though as you’ll see in the coming months.
The front guards turned out to be rather difficult to get off due to the sills being crushed over ontop of them at the base. The side skirts required some serious massaging and a heat gun to get off as whoever fitted them had bought a tube of sikaflex and gone to town! After I’d pulled them off we discovered that the sill panel on the passenger side had been given some rough love too. Another thing was added to the list of “to be fixed”
We were very happy to lay our eyes on the end result of a Lowdown photo shoot done awhile back. An awesome article and set of images guys, together they really capture the spirit and raw character that both cars were built in.
If that wasn’t enough Tith Brothers have also released this very cool video clip from the same shoot. We cant thank you enough guys the end result is killer!

I stumbled across this footage on the official Nissan youtube channel. Its great to see these beasts up close and the crazy aero they’re running also found the footage of the pits. These things are seriously moving too! No sound track and little editing just the raw good stuff, enjoy!
