  1. I'm glad it'll be looked after! Took me almost 2 months to sell it! Great to know that they're still wanted though. Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk
  2. That was a quick sale! Is the new owner on here at all?
  3. Got the tune touched up on Friday, and then off to Whare Flat Hillclimb on Saturday. Had the alternator fail on the first run, but had it replaced for the 2nd. Times weren't amazing, but seat time is seat time! Will need to sort the alignment for the next one...
  4. Red legacy passed another WOF Gave it a little tidy up inside an out, really need to find a replacement carpet for inside, the replacement that I put in it is a little stained... A nice black one would suit. Also really need to respray the roof, front bar and bonnet! But one day... The yellow/blue legacy now has a running forged motor in it too! That combined with the new gearbox and diff has totally transformed it!
  5. Damn that's really tidy! Hopefully you can find it!
  6. Depends on the club and the course, many sealed hill climbs down here don't require cages or log books, but do require a motorsport club license or day license.
  7. I can't quite recall sorry! Was a little while ago now haha.
  8. Not today, but on Saturday I swapped the gearbox out for a much shorter one with a plated center diff, swapped the rear diff out for a very tight viscous, and replaced the rear left hub so that the wheel is actually straight and doesn't have permanent positive camber! Handles completely differently now, the old rear diff was practically open, and the old center was just as useless. It'll happily be thrown into corners sideways in gravel now, which is exactly what I wanted. Here's hoping I can handle it at the next hillclimb! The built engine will go back in next, have sorted all the noises and it'll be ready for another tune when I have the money.
  9. Exactly what @pedro said, that's how I did it in that car originally, works perfect, just make sure you leave enough room to access the seat level and mount it low enough so that the seat can move over it. Here's one I did in my old starlet:
  10. Model: 89 RS Legacy Displacement: 2l Mods: TD05, Yellow Injectors, V3 STI RA heads, Forged short block. Fuel: BP 98 Tuner/dyno: APET Potentially damaged exhaust valve, and heatsoaking like a mofo due to a crap intercooler. Will fix it up and try again...
  11. Yellow and blue legacy for me, 3:35 into the video: My favourite photo from the day: (I really need to fix that spot I missed painting on the roll cage...) Depends on where you are, but here's a few links to get you guys going, there's a mix of sealed tarmac and gravel events around: Motorkhanas are great fun too. http://www.kiwimotoring.com/clubs/category/hillclimb-clubs http://www.sccnz.co.nz/upcoming-events/results/ http://www.hcmc.org.nz/
  12. Eh, didn't do too badly for being myself, didn't go to set any real times, but more so to learn to drive it better, as I've never been very confident at sliding around corners etc, so just lots of practice, that being considered, for once I wasn't last in class, and came out 2nd last in class instead No in car this time, just a drone video a friend made, that I'm in once very briefly. Today I Finally took the rocker covers off of the new engine and found that Cylinder 3's Exhaust valves have too much gap between the buckets and the cam. It's o.3mm on one and 0.4mm on the other, where it should be 0.2mm. Now to find out why....
  13. Took the car to get tuned on Friday, 160KW ATW, tuner said he expected way more, but a better intercooler may help. It also started to develop a tick in one of the heads. Took it home, and checked it out on Saturday morning and found one of the cam carriers had come loose, and the other had snapped bolts.... I swear I tightened them to factory spec. Fixed that, but it still had a tick, now suspecting it may have dropped a shim. Instead of risking it for the hill climb on Sunday, we decided to pull the engine and swap in a spare for Sunday. Finished that at 2AM and then had to be up by 6 to go to the hill climb. Ran the hill climb, spare engine wasn't too happy but dealt with it surprisingly! Will pull the top end apart tonight or tomorrow and find out what's going on with the new engine...
  14. I've heard rumours that Mobile here in Mosgiel is getting 98 soon, I'm looking forward to that, as it's 20KM closer than the nearest BP with 98 to me!
  15. We did this drive recently, thankfully the legacy could do that whole trip on one tank as I didn't spot a single 98 pump the whole way....
