  4. The final half of the year has started, and July’s EOMM kicked things off with a bunch of old school hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s! Some modern chart toppers were also featured, such as the Honda S2000 and the sadly discontinued Aussie made Holden Commodore ute. Read on to find out who got into July’s Cars of Bendix. Check out our exclusive video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDdjthCGDxg Datsun 260Z Sandy’s Datsun 260Z is the perfect tribute to the early days of Japanese motoring. Affectionately dubbed ‘RATSUN’, this 260Z oozes character from its weathered paint to its period-correct stickers. With a rebuilt L26 sitting beneath that sweeping bonnet line, this 260Z goes like stink and produces the kind of intoxicating exhaust note that only an L-Series engine can. To top the whole package off, this 260Z sits just right on a set of BC coilovers and SSR XR4 Longchamp wheels which suit the classic Japanese sports car perfectly. Nissan 180SX Type X Looking like it had rolled straight off the streets of Japan, Nathan’s genuine 180SX Type X turned more than a few heads. Rarity is a running theme with this 180SX, sporting the only Spirit Rei widebody kit here in Australia as well one of the last sets of 18 inch Work VS-KF wheels. The whole exterior package is tied together nicely with a custom hue of purple and finished off with flower petal graphics, paying homage to its homeland. It doesn’t stop at the exterior though; this 180SX reliably pumps out a healthy 300kW to the rear wheels. Subaru Impreza WRX Simplicity is key with Neilson’s 2013 Subaru WRX. Subtle exterior mods such as the STI front lip and rear wing and HT Auto side and rear lips compliment the widebody Rex’s already aggressive lines. Underneath the skin, Neilon’s WRX has been treated to a wide variety of parts straight from Japan. It sits just right on a set of Tein Super Street coilovers and nicely fitted semi-gloss black Gram Lights 57DR wheels. With supporting mods such as Tomei UEL headers, a custom ceramic-coated dump pipe, Kakimoto cat-back and HKS intake and blow-off valve, power is upped from factory, thanks to a tune from MSR. Mazda RX-7 FC3S Any RX-7 is a good RX-7, and the 4th generation that Lachlan picked up is no different. The sleek, oh-so-80s shape has been lowered on Work Meister S1 2 piece rims, and the outside paint has been given a refresh. The legendary 13B turbocharged rotary engine has also been given a freshen-up. Running a bigger turbo on 10PSI and bridgeporting the 13B, it sends an easy 310kW to the rear wheels on just a safe tune. That’s plenty of power for a P-plater! Holden Commodore SS VE Ute Troy Savage owns this extroverted Holden SS ute, which has been modified to be his business’ rolling billboard. The first thing you’d notice is the VF face lift front end, followed by the massive twin filters poking through the bonnet. Under the carefully customized bonnet lay a 6L V8, with a big lumpy cam, twin throttles and a Pro Automotive tune and makes a thunderous 400hp at the wheels. The special wrap and massive wheels grab all the attention too. Troy also tells us he’s running the Bendix Ultimate brake pads, and finds them really good! Cheers for the review, Troy! Honda S2000 Anthony’s Honda S2000 is cleanly modified, with select parts from the biggest Japanese brands. Starting with an AP2 facelift conversion, the updated front and rear lights are joined by a Voltex front bumper and carbon fibre lip, carbon side skirts, a colour coded Mugen hard top, and big, wide TE37SLs. The high strung factory engine breathes easier thanks to an Invidia exhaust and Injen intake. We also love the cheeky neons, a throwback to the Fast and Furious days. You can definitely hear AND see Anthony coming when he rocks up in his S2000. Mazda RX-3 We couldn’t believe our eyes when Omer pulled up in a mint Mazda RX-3! Looking like it’s been locked away in a time capsule, Omer’s RX-3 has actually been lovingly restored. He and his parents purchased the car from his uncle, who had tucked it away in his garage for the last 10 years. The old asthmatic 10A has been chucked in favour of a high revving 13B naturally aspirated rotary. The period correct Simmons wheels and the unmistakable shape of the RX-3 had many mature car enthusiasts running over to take a look. We can’t blame them, after all, the RX-3 was the definitive performance sports car in the 1970s! BMW 325i Daylan a.k.a. Day Day is crazy about BMW E30s, and his mates can testify to the amount and variety of E30s he has built over the last few years. This is his new project, and he’s determined to turn heads with its full on BBS build. Yep, that’s right, BBS does make a rare kit for the E30. Day Day has managed to hunt down a choice set of BBS wheels. In the meantime, he got the car up to scratch first before he gets the rest of the parts. Fully repainted in Lamborghini’s Grigrio gray, the interior is re-upholstered in sumptuous tan leather. The intercooler behind the front bar is a clue that this isn’t just a show pony; the 2.7l boosted and rebuilt motor chucks out 400hp at a drop of a hat!

We’ve taken it to two Summernats in the late 90s, and now we’re planning the ultimate rebuild for it, with a new driveline from a late model Commodore, while retaining the classic 60s style.” The top 3 posts with most likes will win: Bendix Front and Rear Brake pads to suit their vehicles, with 1 x Bendix Jacket, 1 x Bendix Ceramasil Brake Parts Lubricant Tube, 1 x 500ml bottle of Bendix High Performance DOT4 Brake Fluid and 1 x Bendix Brake Cleaner & Parts Degreaser The top ten runner ups from 4th to 10th place will receive: 1 x Bendix Ceramasil Brake Parts Lubricant Tube, 1 x 500ml bottle of Bendix High Performance DOT4 Brake Fluid and 1 x Bendix Brake Cleaner & Parts Degreaser For the full terms and conditions of the Bendix competition, click HERE.

  17. Already the largest solar event in the world, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is back and bigger than ever in 2017, celebrating its 30th anniversary with a record breaking number of entries. This year, a historic 50 teams from 26 countries will compete for the Challenger and Cruiser trophies, and battle for line honours across the 3,000km journey from Darwin to Adelaide, which commences on October 8. Bridgestone Corporation returns as the principal title sponsor for the biennial event, a partnership that commenced in 2013. Bridgestone Australia will also be supporting four local Aussie teams competing in the event with tyre supply. Adelaide University Solar Racing Team, UNSW Solar Racing Team – Sunswift, Western Sydney University Solar Car Project and Flinders University will all be running specially designed Bridgestone ‘ECOPIA with ologic’ tyres. The large diameter tyres will reduce deformation and rolling resistance, while enhancing vehicle aerodynamics and efficiency thanks to narrow tread width. Since it began in 1987 with an inaugural field of 20 teams, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge has grown leaps and bounds, attracting some of the brightest young minds from high-schools and universities across the globe, pushing the limits of technology and showcasing innovation.

  18. The cold obviously never bothered car enthusiasts, as June’s EOMM was once again flooded with cars at Sydney Dragway! A wild and varied mix were on show this month, from feisty little hatchbacks to low-riding Caddys, all the way to show cars with massive sound systems, and little racy coupes setting fast times at the track! Andrew’s 1982 Nissan Stanza SSS “A Nissan what?” you may ask. The Stanza was never a popular car worldwide, slotting in between the Sunny and 200B. It was assembled locally by Nissan Australia from 1979 to 1982, and did well amongst local buyers. Andrew’s Stanza SSS was immaculately repainted and restored by the previous owner, and once he took possession of it, promptly went to the drags and ran a 12.9sec quarter mile with a standard SR20DET. Now it’s back meaner than before, with a forged motor under the bonnet, sucking air through a GTX3076 turbo. Andrew reckons it’s on 270kw on the run in tune, and after it’s all done, would love to get low 11s on street radials. Chris’ 1966 Cadillac DeVille Classic American luxury coupes are a thing in the Australian car culture, and it’s no wonder; all you need to do is to take a beautifully restored Caddy, put it on bags, and slam it! Chris’ DeVille was restored in Nevada, before being imported here and sold to Chris. Arguably the best looking version of the old school Caddys, the 1966 coupe pictured here featured a vinyl roof and paintjob in Inverness Green, period correct wire wheels with white walls, and of course, air bags for that gangster low look. Elliot’s 1990 Corolla FX-GT It’s a Toyota Corolla, but before you start yawning, it’s a mint one that you can’t go on Gumsales.com.au and buy for $500 with 6 months rego. The rare, two door hatchback was only available in Japan, and this one here was a personal import. With only 149,000kms on the clock, and a full, up to date Japanese logbook from Nagano, it’s certainly a collector’s item. Elliot’s own modifications include a Toaster White respray, custom DIY flares, and 9.5in wide BBS style wheels. Inside it has a mint interior other than some wear from Japanese tweed, and a bit of ciggie burn on the rear seat from a JDM dart. It really has character, something that can’t be said for most of today’s Toyotas. Steven’s 2014 Toyota 86 Steven’s list of modifications look like a JDM fan’s Dear Santa letter; from the TRD and Varis body kit, right down to the massive AP Racing big brake calipers on the front. Under the bonnet, the parts are from Japan’s most well-known tuners; Cusco, Revolution, HPI, GReddy, HKS, Blitz, etc. The wide Wedsport rims are running Yokohama AD08Rs, made to run very quick lap times on the track. Despite being an automatic, Steven has lapped the Wakefield track in the 1:10s, a very respectable time for any circuit racer. Jayden’s 1990 Nissan Patrol We walked past this hulking monster and had to double back after spotting an out-of-place straight six petrol engine inside this 4WD. Jayden had chucked out standard issue 2.4L diesel engine, making way for the updated 4.2L turbocharged petrol straight six from the more modern Patrols. A Garrett 3540 hangs off the side of it, and Jayden says it makes 300hp, but with 800Nm of torque on the fat 35in tyres. A 5in lift kit with external reservoirs are needed for serious off-roading Jayden often does, and those knobbly BFG KM2 tyres provide serious grip in all sorts of conditions. Best thing is, it’s all built in the backyard with his mates! Laura’s HSV Clubsport Laura’s HSV Clubsport is one of a kind, with a custom body kit and pink paintjob, it definitely stood out at EOMM. The LS1 has been given a tickle with a cam, full exhaust system and an OTR intake, along with an accompanying tune. Looks and speed isn’t enough for Laura though; she’s serious about the Clubsport, with plans to enter it in this year’s prestigious MotorEx car show. Pop the boot and doors, then stand way back, it is jam packed with the best gear from Pioneer, all arranged in a simple but pleasing way. Laura tells us it’s not complete yet, with air bags on the to-do list. Can’t wait to see this lay rail on the ground! Nathan’s 2002 Toyota Crown Athlete V The Crown Athlete V isn’t a car you see every day. Nathan purchased it in Japan via an import broker, and registered it just last month. Powered by the renowned 1JZ-GTE, the Crown is all about cruising the roads in aristocratic luxury and style. The imposing presence is heightened by the lowered stance and wider 7Twenty Style49 wheels. Inside the all leather interior has been garnished with the choiciest Junction Produce curtains and neck rests, Garson DAD dash mats and passenger table. Even the OEM TV has been tweaked to mirror Nathan’s iPhone. Airbags, engine work and proper Leon Hardritt wheels will soon join the mod list. Lachlan’s 2005 Mini Cooper S Despite the updated, modern retro shape, the new Mini still retains all the fun character of the original; go kart like handling and the ability to put a smile on your face. The updated supercharged engine in Lachlan’s Cooper S means push is upgraded to shove. The enhanced Cooper S makes quite a bit pony more than from factory, thanks to a 17PSI pulley, aftermarket intercooler, custom hurricane exhaust, and tuned to pump 220whp. The 18x7.5in wheels don’t look lost in the wheel arches, and are wide enough to provide awesome grip around corners.

  22. The WRX nameplate has an illustrious history of providing motorsport excitement, while retaining everyday driveability and affordability. A mainstay of the Australian automotive scene, the WRX offered hot hatch performance, with the versatility of a medium sized four door sedan. Since its introduction in 1994, the WRX has evolved over the years, adding more power, a bigger engine, and a more modern interior. The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX finally received the wide body treatment that was reserved only for the WRX STi, making it look aggressive on the road. Only the trainspotters could tell the difference, but otherwise, it’s a car you’d look back at when you get out and walk away. The massive boot, comfortable interior, and on point suspension tuning meant that the WRX is an easy car to live with, despite its fierce looks. Under the bonnet, the 2.5L turbocharged boxer engine makes 195kW, putting the power to the ground efficiently through Subaru’s signature all-wheel drive system. The torquey engine makes the WRX feel lightweight, as it just flings itself up the straights. Steering the car is still easy, and has a lightweight clutch and manual gearbox that’s effortless to shift. This makes the WRX easy to drive fast, whether in a straight line or attacking corners. With its duality nature, the WRX needs brake pads that can stop well and yet be easy to drive with on a day to day basis. Bendix Ultimate brake pads are designed for cars that see daily traffic, windy roads and track days. The brake compound provides reduced stopping distances without screeching to a halt, thanks to Bendix’s noise dampening shims. The Ultimate brake pads also has great pedal feel, and is highly brake fade resistant for repeated hard stops.

  25. Uneven brake pad wear is when a brake pad or a set of brake pads wear out quicker compared to the other side of the car, truck or van. When this happens, brake pads will have to be changed well before its used up, costing time and money to buy and install a new set of brake pads. A common cause of uneven brake pad wear is DTV (Disc Thickness Variation). Variation in the thickness of your rotors chew away at the brake pad as they come in contact with flat spots in the disc, causing the pad to wear unevenly. Depending on the extent of the impact of DTV on your rotors, they can be machined to iron out any flat spots. Rotors can only be machined so many times though so be mindful of that. It’s also important to hit your newly-machined rotors with Bendix Brake/ Parts Cleaner & Degreaser to get rid of any machine dust. The key to avoiding the effects of DTV is taking measures to prevent it in the first place. If you’re installing a new set of rotors, preparing them properly beforehand is an important step to take. Make sure to give them a hit of brake cleaner before installing them to clear any dirt and anti-rust coating. Issues with the operation of the brake calipers are also major contributors to uneven brake pad wear. Often, components within the caliper, such as the guide pins, can seize and cause the brake pad to drag along the rotor whilst the brakes aren’t applied which in turn leads to uneven brake pad wear. If it’s come time to replace your brake pads and you’ve found there to be some uneven wear, check the caliper guide pins. If one or both of the guide pins are seized, it’s time to pull them out and regrease them with Bendix Ceramic High Performance Synthetic Lubricant. If they’re a bit worse for wear, it’d be a good idea to replace them. If this doesn’t rectify the problem, the issue might require a caliper rebuild or replacement.

  26. The Nissan Silvia was an affordable sports car with all the right ingredients. Turbocharged power, rear wheel drive, and striking good looks is a timeless recipe, and the last Silvia had all of them in the right proportions. This Silvia, or 200SX when it was sold here by Nissan Australia, is the last generation made, going by the chassis code, S15. The previous generations were already legendary mainstays in the modified car scene, thanks to the balance of power, handling and styling. The S15 has the most powerful factory engine ever in a Silvia, and is paired with a six speed gearbox, driving a helical LSD in the rear. It drives as good as it looks, too. Without any modern electronic nannies other than ABS, the driver has full control over the S15. To use grip for the racing line, or hang the tail out for fun, the S15 can do both in equal measures. The longevity of the S15 has been bolstered by the staggering amount of aftermarket parts for it. From extreme wide body kits, to off the shelf racing and drifting suspension setups, the S15 can be fully customised for drag, drift, racing or just for the street. Bendix has just the right brake pads to match the S15’s versatile roles. The Bendix Ultimate is a high performance brake pad that is engineered for pure stopping power on windy roads or on the track. However, daily drivability is not compromised, thanks to the special Bendix noise absorbing shims. Providing excellent pedal feel from the get-go, the Bendix Ultimate is highly tolerant of extreme temperatures for fade free braking.
