  8. On a cold July morning in Goulburn we saw the drift community gather together for Rev Drift sessions at Wakefield Park Raceway. The event was organised by the guys at Revolution Motorsport and run on the shortened track making it a technical affair with the highspeed front straight sorting out the men from the boys with entry speeds into turn one proving exciting to say the least. There certainly was no shortage of well set up high powered drift cars ready to burn through the rubber with plenty of Nissan S13’s, S14’s, 180SX’s and a mix of interesting old school cars including a 1986 R31 Skyline and a 1JZ Powered Toyota Cressida. The competition was hot with loads of capable drivers showing aggression and commitment that you would normally only see at top level drifting competition in Australia. These grassroots teams left nothing on the table with awards going to Nic Kurippan from Team Red Stage as best driver showing enviable car control skills. The biggest entry award went to Victorian driver Zac Bognar, who was regularly seen throwing his Nissan in backwards at the fishhook! Best looking car on the day went to Josh Lewis in his Battleship Grey R34 Nissan Skyline. With a full roll cage and 425Kw under the bonnet it was certainly a monster of a car on the track. The event wouldn’t be possible without the support from Wakefield Park Raceway, Revolution Motorsport and all the teams. We look forward to the next Rev Drift Sessions!
  9. Affectionately known as The Paperclip, Queensland Raceway was opened in 1999 and has hosted a large number of Supercars and Superbike races since then. The fast and challenging 3.12km long Ipswich based circuit comprises of 6 corners and was the last track Dick Johnson drove competitively at. Having previously had great success at the circuit, Chaz Mostert was looking forward to the round. “QR’s a special place for me. Obviously I got my first win there back in the day, and we’ve had a fair bit of success over the years, hopefully we can add to it this weekend. Townsville was overall pretty positive but I feel like we let a win slip out of our hands there, so we’re pretty hungry to go out and get the most out of it this weekend.” Friday’s practice sessions were a great start to the round with Mostert posting the 5th and 3rd fastest laps. Chaz felt there was more in it and was keen to try harder in the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Mustang the following day although both he and teammate Will Davison both bettered the 2018 lap record set by James Courtney. “It’s been a pretty tough day for us in 55. I probably expected to roll out a little bit stronger or get the car feel under me a little bit stronger, but we chucked the toolbox at it over the last two sessions so we’re going to have to go in the truck again, see if there’s another toolbox in there, and then probably chuck the toolbox at it again. Look, it could just be the track, you know. It degrades every year we come, but for me, the grip level out there, I’m just not feeling it through my car. Obviously we’re trying some different things, we’re trying to bridge the gap to these guys (Davison and Scott McLaughlin) too, and for me I just need to chase it a little bit more.” Team Principal Tim Edwards added to this by suggesting that the track condition could be a cause of the lack in grip. “It was a pretty positive day for the team overall. Everyone is in or close to in the window of where they need to be, and while we’ve got a bit of work to do, we’re pretty happy with the speed of our cars. The guys are saying the track is a bit more abrasive so we have to work with that, but we’ll keep our heads down and try to get ahead of the game for tomorrow.” Saturday’s Practice 3 was a great start to the weekend with Chaz again going under the 2018 lap record, setting the 4th fastest time in the session. The track conditions improved during the following qualifying session. With times dropping all round, Chaz managed a best time of 1m08.97s putting him in 6th place on the grid for the race. Chaz grabbed the bull by the horns off the start line rounding up Shane in the 97 Holden Commodore and then passing Tickford teammate Holdsworth around the outside of the final corner seeing him in P4 by the end of lap 1. Fighting hard the rest of the race Mostert scored his 8th podium finish for 2019 taking out third place in the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang behind his very excited teammate Will Davison. “First of all, these two guys next to me (Jamie Whincup and Will Davison) today were super impressive. Will (has been) chasing a podium all year, so its good to see him finally get up there, and also great to stand up there with a teammate. My race, look, I was nervous as on the start line. I was really not happy with my car in qualifying, knowing that the rules, you’ve got to carry your qualifying car over. So I’m super shocked to get a podium today with how the car was feeling earlier today. Saying that, I just trucked on, had a pretty lucky first lap as these guys were all battling in front, I kind of did a bit of a Townsville move again and just got myself into a bit of clean track and I came out, I think I was in fourth after it all settled out, so I got myself into position to try and get a podium.” On Sunday Chaz started the day fast with a best time of 1m08.81s in Practice 4, putting him 6th fastest. He then went faster with a time of 1m08.62s during Qualifying 3, which scored him a spot on the front row of the grid. Race 20 saw a heated exchange with Scott McLaughlin on lap one before the drivers settled into their spots. Chaz looked comfortable throughout the race and was able to bring the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang home in 3rd place netting him his 9th podium this year. “Consistency this weekend’s been good, a couple thirds, and I think through practice I was third. So yeah, look, it’s good for our team, but a lot of work to do with these two guys beside us (Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen) and Jamie (Whincup) across the weekend have been absolute stand outs…Today we lost a little bit of performance compared to yesterday but I definitely (think) if I had the car I had yesterday I still wouldn’t have had anything for these two.” With a pair of podiums, Chaz retains his 4th place in the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, tightening his gap to SVG from 29 points in Townsville it 20. The championship continues Aug 23-25 at The Bend Motorsport Park for the OTR SuperSprint.

  10. There is a number on the field labeled Correction in the mainline dyno print out, in front of SAE J607 and I've noticed it changes from print out to print out What does this number mean?
  11. usually just means they need the money for something else. priorities change. GLWS OP!
  12. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJ0koDXk6PY&feature=youtu.be Welcome to Bendix brakes, today we will look at how a modern disc brake system works. We will start by looking at the braking components involved in stopping a vehicle and how they work together. Starting with one of the main components in the braking system we look at the disc rotor which the brake pads squeeze against, this will create friction that decelerates the rotation of the wheel and vehicle. The caliper is activated by brake fluid hydraulic pressure produced from the vehicles brake pedal and master cylinder. In this assembly the brake pads are squeezed up against the disc rotor surface to create friction. Brake Calliper Assembly A calliper is made up of multiple parts all crucial in effective operation of the brake system. These parts include the caliper and mounting bracket, slide pins, locking bolts, dust boots, brake mounting clips, brake pads and shims, the brake piston with dust boot and seal. The caliper is fed brake fluid through a banjo fitting which drives the piston forward towards the inside brake pad when the brake pedal is pushed. This causes the caliper to move along the slide pins which then pulls the outside brake pad up against the brake disc rotor. Now that we understand the parts lets see how the braking system works. When the brake pedal is pressed the caliper will receive high pressure brake fluid from the master cylinder which will push the piston into the inside brake pad and onto the disc rotor surface. Hydraulic pressure will cause the caliper to move along the slide pins pulling the outer brake pad against the opposite side of the disc rotor causing friction and decelerating the brake and the vehicle. Looking at the braking process from another angle we can see the brake fluid pushing the piston which in turn pushes the inner brake pad against the inside of the disc rotor, once this has happened the fluid will now push the caliper along the slides and the outer brake pad will be pulled towards the opposite side of the disc rotor.

  14. $350 No rail, just seat Originally passenger seat but using it as driver's seat in my Galant. Location: Melbourne, Kealba 3021
  15. this is an incredible example of a well built evo, although i am curious about why most owners sell. I always see the reason "the car just doesn't get driven often enough". Does the car being driven sparingly make it not worth it or something? Just feels like there's more tot he story than that I guess.
  16. Hi all, Unfortunately it has come time for me to post my Evo 8 MR in grey mica with aprox 180000km on the clock for sale. I'm not in any major rush to sell, just seeing if there is any interest in a heavily modified CT Evo. I don’t drive it much anymore so it's time for someone else to enjoy the car. Motor was built about 5 years/35000km ago. No expense spared in the build, all work done by Precision Racing. Some of the cars specs are: 2.3 Precision Racing fire ringed motor with Manly billet crank Precision 6466 forward facing custom turbo kit with custom A/C Tomei titanium exhaust New OS Giken triple plate clutch PPG 1-4 drag dogbox with final drive Wavetrac and PPG diff tube 3000GT rear diff with custom Driveshaft Shop carbon tailshaft, DSS level 5 axles and hubs, and Racefab chromoly subframe Custom surge tank with twin 044 fuel pumps Speedflow braided lines everywhere Haltech Pro Plugin PFC front 2 piece rotors and Endless pads all round Work Emotion XT7 18 x 9.5 wrapped in 265 AD08Rs Rockford Fosgate audio system with custom 2 x 12” sub enclosure in the boot with full access to spare tyre. Sound deadening throughout the car Suede interior (steering wheel, front seats, roof, parcel shelf and pillars) with diamond stitching on the parcel shelf and front seats and moulded gauge pods in the pillar Car was recently on the dyno and made 475kw at 36psi. Will make over 500kw easily with more boost (has made 515kw at 42psi and 540kw at 46psi previously). There is a link in my signature with my full build thread which will have all parts listed on the first page.
  17. Following on from the BetEazy Darwin Triple Crown, Chaz Mostert and Tickford Racing team headed to Townsville. Introduced to the Supercars Championship calendar 10 years ago in 2009, the Townsville 400 is made up of two 200km races held on the Saturday and Sunday around the technical 2.85km long street circuit which comprises of 13 turns. The format has remained the same for the past 10 years with the exception of 2014 when it was the Townsville 500, made up of two 125km races on the Saturday and one 250km race on the Sunday. Having scored his 6th podium after 7 rounds, Chaz was feeling positive after good results at the end of the first half of the season and was looking forward to getting back to the Queensland track. “It’s always good to get to Townsville, it’s a fun track and a great event, so I’m looking forward to getting back in the Supercheap rocket and trying to chip away towards the pointy end. Darwin was pretty good to us, with the development we’ve had in the cars I think we’ve definitely made some gains, obviously we’ll continue with that track and hopefully have a positive weekend in the sunshine.” Friday’s sessions didn’t prove to be ideal for Mostert in the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang after he was only able to complete ten laps. Chaz sat out most of Practice 1 due to the wet conditions, but was then plagued by an electrical issue in the Mustang during Practice 2 which wasn’t fixed until late in the session. His day ended with 16th and 14th positions across the two sessions. Not a total loss, but disappointing having stood on the podium at the previous round. “I’m not gutted from the results, or where we are on the times sheets, I’m just gutted that we didn’t get the track running we probably wanted to today. We had some things that we really wanted to get a bit of an idea on, so this really put us on the back foot for this weekend. I’m not sure how we’ll roll out tomorrow, but we’ll just try to recover the best way we can. Obviously we’ve got some quick team mates, so that’s fantastic from a team point of view to try to rely on. We’ll look forward to tomorrow, onwards and upwards, and we’ll see how we go.” On Saturday Chaz hit the ground running and managed to put the No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang on the front row of the grid with a qualifying time of 1m12.22s. This second place start was a huge boost for Chaz and after a long 200km race he managed to come in third, bringing his 47th career podium and 7th of the season “I’m super pumped to get a trophy here, I’ve been trying for a lot of years, and always seemed to come up short, so I got the monkey off my back. I’m a lot of years into my career, but this has always been the one to get away from us. For me, I had a pretty reasonable start, running a bit of a different, wild card, a bit like Jamie (Whincup) this weekend. (It probably has) better qualifying pace, but the race car we’ll have to make a little bit better. Overall, it seemed pretty quick, I just couldn’t quite hang onto these guys (Scott McLaughlin and Whincup) as much as I’d like to, and overall I pat the guys on the back. I think they’ve done a pretty good job with the mentality of going forward.” Sunday’s qualifying didn’t go quite as well as the day before for Chaz who dropped back 14 positions from his Saturday start. Chaz did manage to get a great race start in very tricky conditions with rain starting to sprinkle on the Townsville circuit which catapulted him into 9th place on the first lap. Sadly his fight to get back into podium contention wasn’t meant to be with an incorrect fuel delivery amount during a stop meaning he had to stop again in the closing stages in order to take 5th place legally. “A bit gutted to be honest. The car was really, really good in the slippery conditions, and there was some stuff we did at the start, even before the race started, and the weather just didn’t go our way. Obviously it was great to have a fast car, but that extra pit stop at the end hurt our finishing position. A bit gutted, P5, most people would kill for that result, but when you feel you can get a trophy and maybe even on that top step, it hurts that it eluded us today.” With two solid race results, Chaz moves into 4th place in the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with only a 29 point deficit on SGV and a 6 point lead over David Reynolds who sits in 5th. Racing continues July 26-28 at the Century Batteries Ipswitch SuperSprint.

  18. Hey Greg, I wont hold you to this, but figure you may have spoken to experts about this. Any idea how much the additional parts and labour would be roughly for the 5MT conversion? Thanks, Brett
  19. 1. Shad’s 1974 Mazda RX-4 One of the first cars I heard, saw and smelt upon arriving at Rolling30. It’s not often that you have the pleasure of seeing a street driven Luce Rotary; most are reserved for the drag-strip alongside the RX-2s & RX-3s. Shad was able to find his RX-4 about 5 years ago from south of the border, down Victoria way, already sporting a few mods with a Cosmo 13B Turbo engine and a Series 5 RX7 gearbox. Wanting to stand apart from the crowds, he went to PAC to help him build the car into a tough, reliable street car. PAC Performance definitely built this car tough with a 13B bridge ported motor from a series 8 RX-7 with a tasty GT51R Turbo hanging off the side coupled with a Turbosmart EBoost 2 & Blow Off Valve. Underneath the car you’ll find a C4 Auto gearbox, 9” Truetrac LSD and 15” RC Components Fusion Street Fighter Wheels; customized by PAC Performance. This RX4 is now making 600HP thanks to a Microtech LT16C ECU and a custom PAC fuel tank housing triple pumps to push that sweet E85 through. Of course, being a PAC car, it has taken a trip down the drag strip and joined the 9 second club running 9.7sec at 139 mph. The final thing Shad is looking to do is finish off the interior of the car, which currently houses a full roll cage as the main modification. 2. Mark’s 1973 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia The Volkswagen Karmann Ghia is definitely an interesting sports car and Mark’s is a fine example of the 2+2 coupe. Built in Germany from 1955 to 1974, there were just over 445,000 cars produced, combining the chassis & mechanicals of a Type 1 Volkswagen Beetle with styling from Italy’s Carrozzeria Ghia and hand-build bodywork by Germany’s Wilhelm Karmann GmbH. Mark purchased the car in 2008 and spent the next 5 years rebuilding the car from the ground up in his garage with the help of friends and family, including a full respray. The 1916 Type 1 VW Engine was rebuilt in October 2018 by WPVW to make 125HP at the wheels, with plenty of goodies from CB Performance including match-ported manifolds, wedgeport heads and 5.5 journal rods. The car is also running 40mm IDF Webers with 34mm venturis. Rolling around on 16” x 6” Porsche Fuch rims, Mark enjoys getting out and touring the car around NSW & Victoria. 3. Jared’s 1966 Austin-Healey Sprite MK III The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car designed as a low-cost model that “a chap could keep in his bike shed”. The cars have quite a successful race-pedigree, placing 12th at Le Mans in 1965, and several class wins at Sebring with Stirling Moss, Bruce McLaren & Steve McQueen behind the wheel. Interestingly, the Sprites were imported into Australia as a completely knocked down kit and assembled in Enfield, NSW. Jared’s Sprite, however, came from New Zealand, where it had done some classic Targa rallying. The factory 1.1L A-Series I4 engine, making a grand total of 59 HP, had already be ditched for the Toyota 4AGE engine, but the work was not up to Australian standards, so Jared spent a couple of years rebuilding the car with his brother Josh to get it to where it is today. The new 4AGE Big Port Engine is from an AE86, it’s had the EFI removed and converted to twin 40mm Dellorto side draft carby, to keep it somewhat period correct. The pistons, heads, camshafts & cam gears have all been upgraded to make 138HP at the rear wheels, but there’s still a bit more in the engine before Jared is happy with it. Underneath the car you’ll find a set of 13”x 6” Superlite rims, 2 piece full floating 4340 Billet Axles (with a lifetime guarantee), and a 3.7:1 LSD. The power is put to the ground through an AE86 T50 5 speed box with an Exedy heavy duty clutch and ultralight flywheel, and seeing as the car only weighs 695kg, it would definitely be a fun drive, especially through the twisties. Jared has a few more plans for the car, including a roll cage and some interior mods to go with the power plans. 4. Brett’s 1978 Mitsubishi Lancer A70 There are plenty of lancers on the road under different marketing badges around the world: Colt, Dodge, Plymouth, Chrysler Valiant, Hindustan. There’s been plenty of evolutions of the model, 9 in fact, so you’d be forgiven if you were to mistake Brett’s car for something else. The car started out new in the family where Brett’s father sold it at Pember’s Chrysler, but then had it traded back in 1984 for a Mitsubishi Sigma. It was given to Brett as his first car, and has been slowly modified over time, first as a daily driver and then to a super sprint car starting at Oran Park in 1987. The car now sees the track at Wakefield on a semi-regular basis where Brett’s son races it predominately. The original engine has been replaced with a Mitsubishi 2.4 Sirius 4G64 engine with dual 45mm Weber carbys, 12:1 compression forged pistons, a ported head and mild camshafts to make 180 HP with plenty of torque. The car has also borrowed several parts from a Sigma including the gearbox, a 4.9:1 LSD from a MK I Cortina and the brakes from a Scorpion. The 14” x 7” Performance Superlite wheels with Nitto Semi-Slicks keep the car firmly on the racetrack! 5. 1992 Ferrari 512 TR “TestaRossa” Despite being outside of the 30 year limit for Rolling30, this gorgeous Ferrari 512 TR in Giallo Modena came by with the hopes of getting out on track to give the crowds the aural pleasure of the 4.9 liter rear-mounted flat 12 at full song. The car was also up for sale, and I’m sure plenty of people would love to have this beauty in their garages after years of it sitting on their walls growing up. This example finished in Ferrari Nero Stellato yellow with original 5 spoke alloy wheels is a complete concourse car with no modifications. There is not a lot to say but wow! 6. 1972 Ford Falcon XA GT-HO Phase IV A piece of ‘almost’ racing history was out on track at Rolling30 – 2 of 4 XA GT-HO Phase IV sedans ever produced. The production of the car, for homologation to the Group E Series Production Touring Car series aiming for the 1972 Hardie-Ferodo race at Bathurst, was cut short when on the 25th June 1972 the Sun-Herald published an article entitled “160MPH ‘Super Cars’ Soon” sparked the New South Wales Minister for Transport, Milton Morris, to call for a ban on the supercars three days later. On the fourth day the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) announced the end of the Group E regulations, replacing them with Group C regulations which allowed modified versions of road cars to compete, and thus removing the need for manufacturers to develop road-going race vehicles. Ford officially ceased production on Sunday 2nd July after one car had been produced, with three others in various stages of construction at Ford Special Vehicles; their internal race division. Hand built seam-welded and a blueprinted engine producing almost 400HP. This intact factory race car with under 5000 miles is one of the only three manufactured by Ford Special Vehicles for Allan Moffat & Fred Gibson. 7. Aaron’s 1951 Chevy 3100 Pickup ‘Memphis Hell’ Aaron’s 51 Chev is definitely a head turner, guaranteed to attract attention anywhere it goes, and when your business is building cars like it for a living, that’s a unique business card to hold. Aaron was lucky to purchase the car for $1,500, but has invested plenty into it since then, both time and resources. The roof has been chopped, doors and bonnet shaved, engine bay built and there’s plenty of work done in the rear tub too. Underneath the car you’ll find a Holden Rodeo chassis & floor pan, keeping it in the GM family, with a 5L v8 engine and t56 6 speed manual box. The car sits millimeters off the ground thanks to the 4 link, air bagged suspension on the notched chassis and a set of staggered Simmons OM rims – 17”x10” on the front and 18”x12” in the rear. Over the last 10 years the car has constantly evolved; starting out as an LPG at Ocean Grove in Victoria when he started building it with his dad, moving to Carby petrol, and now injected. The retro race style is Aaron’s latest, and who know where it will go next. 8. Jason’s 1982 Holden VH Commodore – Brock HDT Race Tribute Jason had a couple of Commodores at Rolling 30, but this VH took our eye with the HDT Brock/Perkins livery of the winning car from the 1982 James Hardie 1000. The 308 under the hood with a cold air intake is all you need to make 215kW at the HDT 20” Aero wheels. Jason was super busy running his cars on the day so we settled on grabbing some detailed snaps of the car and listening to that tough 308 open up around the GP circuit.

  20. Coming into a very hot Darwin race weekend Chaz was keen to improve on his 6th place standing in the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. This round was held at Hidden Valley in the Northern Territory and the track is known for its high speeds and fast lap times. It’s a 2.87 kilometre 14 corner technical circuit with sweeping bends and a long 1.1 kilometre main straight. So lots of opportunity for passing and also drama which the Darwin round never fails to deliver! The Tickford team opened the weekend with a series of strong practice sessions with Chaz posting the fastest time in Practice 1 and then going P4 in Practice 2 with a 1m06.33s. The qualifying session went mostly to plan with the No. 55 posting a 1m06.32s and lining up 6th on the grid. Tickford went into race 15 with an aggressive pit strategy that gave Chaz Mostert the track position to notch his sixth podium of 2019 and a second-place finish in the first race of the Darwin Triple Crown. Chaz gave us his thoughts on Race 15 “We were very lucky there at the end. It’s been – I was saying – probably two, three years since we’ve had the ability to do an aggressive strategy and come home probably a bit sadder on tyres than some others, but every day you get a trophy from doing it is a good strategy call, so credit to Adam (De Borre, engineer). He stuck to his guns, had a crack, and the trophy was a team effort today. The boys were really quick in the pit stops, no fumbling around, and I just tried to hold onto the tyres, but the temperature up here is really hard. The end of the race was pretty interesting for us, I was looking in the mirror, I saw Davey Reynolds – he’s a pretty hard charger – he was coming for me, and then there was, you know, more fresh tyres behind him, coming and coming. I was probably lucky that Scotty McLaughlin kind of buggered off down the road a little bit and gave me a bit of clean air to just focus on looking after the tyres, and P2 is all we had today.” Race 16 qualifying started well with Chaz posting the 3rd fastest time, only to drop to 8th in the Top 10 shootout with a 1m06.22s. Chaz lamented prior to the race start “ We dropped a bit in the last sector and finished P8 in the shootout, but on the plus side I think we have a good race car and I’m ready to race” Moving into the race and starting 8th on the grid the No.55 managed to have a clean start and move up two positions after a late strategy call for new tyres which enabled him to jump his team mates Will Davidson and Lee Holdsworth. Looking back on the race with Chaz “We just stuck to our strategy. The top four was probably the best result we could get, but just ran out of puff there at the end to get back to there. It is what it is, P6 is a good bank of points, just not where we want to be. We still have some work to do, obviously, and we’ll keep fighting.” Team principal Tim Edwards gave us his thoughts on the weekend: “All told that’s a really good weekend for us. Our car speed was very good and for the most part we executed very well. The only difference right now is while our cars are very good a couple of cars – one car in particular – are doing great. We’re really happy with the results, and right now we’ve got four cars in the top ten of the championship, which is incredibly hard to do in any championship. We’ve got to recognise that, but at the same time we’re racers, and we want more than fourth place, so we have to keep working.” Next up is the Watpac Townsville 400 in the Far North of Queensland on July 5th -7th. Which means a lot of miles for the team back home in Melbourne to prepare the car before the long drive to Townsville in 3 weeks’ time. Stay tuned to see how Chaz and the No.55 Supercheap Auto Racing Mustang supported by Bendix goes on the streets of Townsville! Follow Bendix Brakes on Facebook HERE.
