    School me up quickly on drag racing please

    I am doing a Classic race meeting at Ruapuna this Saturday. I have just seen there is a Drag meeting there on the Sunday. If my car comes through the Saturday OK, and the weather is OK, I am sorely tempted to to enter the drags. I still know next to nothing about drag racing but have re-read...

    930 4th gear about .75 ratio

    I want to regear my trans. 4th is miles too high. Looking for a secondhand pair about .75 ratio. A bit either side would be OK. Synchro. Doesn't have to be totally mint, so long as its usable. I only need it to last until I can convert to a dog box with all custom gears. It'll be really...

    Scratchbuilt 'Kiwi 40' goes racing.

    Five years in the making and after a couple of aborted attempts in the last month, last Sunday my Kiwi 40 finally took to the track in anger. It was a low key club day at Ruapuna, my local track, and I was running in the class for Classic Saloons. There were 36 cars on the grid, the quickest...

    Problem with tacho dying

    Another big milestone tonight! Fired up the motor and boy is she sweet! There was really only one issue and that was every time we brought the revs up to 4000 the rev counter died. The reading returned to normal when we dropped the revs. If the motor was blipped harder the tacho crapped out at...

    NZ built Sports racing cars. SCANZ etc.

    A discussion was starting to open up in my build thread so I thought I'd give it a life of its own here. May only be of interest to some Kiwis and may die a natural death but this will start the ball rolling. Yeah, Colin Smith built a series of Rhubarbs, about four or five I think. My fading...

    Hewland LG600 in AMGT-2

    Was AMGT-2 ever fitted with an LG600? This has interested me ever since I read in John Allen's book that it was. This is a question that has been pursued in several threads here and many people involved with this car have opined that they did not think that was so. <link rel="File-List"...

    Pivotal Engine

    I took the morning off today to attend Southmach 2009, a local machinery expo. I was amazed to find a revolutionary engine developed here in Christchurch which has been produced in several guises for the last few years. Quite a bit of lateral thinking has gone into this design of a high...

    Adjusting 930 LSD power/overrun split.

    Well, I've just pulled my LSD to bits. It's the first LSD I've ever looked at. Everything looks good and measures up nicely and it appears easy enough to tighten it up a little. But what's got me beat is how to change the power/overrun split. Standard Porsche has much more locking on overrun...
