The bushings in my Noltecs completely fell apart and they are no longer in business.. Was hoping you may have had some ideas since I've not had luck finding bushings.. What endlinks did you replace yours with?

I've fitted it this morning as a final test piece. Just some panel gaps to clean and that's it. The pics don't really show how it looks but it changes the dash appearance completely. Now looks more like a cockpit haha.


There will be at least one **** in there I hear you say.

After fitting all the front end bits I went to get her geometry redone.*
I always go back to Damien @ Skidmarques in Hutton, Brentwood. Known him for a long time and he always does a proper job.*

Now got over 6 degrees of caster, toed out the rear a little too making the car rotate a little quicker. The handling feels even more agile and accurate. Very pleased.*

It's the ECU cal switch. It allows me to have up to 8 different maps.
Also controls my ALS. But can be set to alter anything the ECU is capable of controlling inc launch, traction, etc.

In my case

Cal 1 is for 95 Ron fuel 1.5bar,
Cal 2 is for 99 Ron fuel 1.9 bar
Cal 3 is Cal2 + ALS enabled.
Cal 4 is 99 Ron fuel + 20% methanol 2.1 bar
Cal 5 is Cal 4 + ALS enabled

And so on....

The Syvecs ECU is what AMS are putting road going GTRs into the 8 second qtr mile. It's a serious ECU.

Hey guys,

Finally got the dash done, although this is a whole lot neater than having 3 in a hood and 3 up the a pillar im still quite tempted to ditch the lot in place of a single Toucan display.
Nothing will be as instant on the eye for reading data than indevidual meters but a single screen would be a whole lot neater.

I think im going to see how i get on like this and if need be take it all out and start again haha.

Any thoughts?

Sorry for the cak iphone pics, my computer wont dalk to Photobucket right now lol

wow.. that looks great!! ive always liked the look of gauges over looking at one display.. especially one that you have to toggle to the seperate gauges on the display.. when on the track, its nice to just look at the gauge you wanna look at and instantly put your eyes back on the track

Very nice Frays.

Interested in if you actually look at gauges when racing though? I know I dont.

That's the beauty of having the alarms on the Defis Russ, I don't have to look at them often.

i catch myself glancing at the gauges whenever im in a straightaway... i typically used the warning alarms to help out.. but it was nice to know the gauges were there when i felt the need to look over

Gonna replace the horrid cap heads with some smooth buttons, to try and make it look less garish but it can't really be seen much from the rear of the car.
I was sick and tired of my bumper melting from the radiant heat of the exhaust tip so decided to finally do something proper about it.
Tried the dei self adhesive reflection mat and that burns off too.
So gone with a more permanent solution, I just hope this works.

If the exhaust tip colour I anything to go by its seeing between 270/340 degrees C.
Toasty!

I'm gonna change the hardware and probably paint it VHT black anyway mate. I don't like it as it is.

New hardware looks much better. If it functions well then I may remove and paint black.
Happy enough for now though.

Good idea, and I don't see why it wouldn't function well. Once it's black you'll have to point it out to the casual observer.

Love reading your thread BTW.

Thanks mate, glad you like it.

I've been cleaning some bits on the car in the sun this morning. Weather was too nice to miss.
The engine bay still looks smart and it's been back on the road almost a year now.
Couple of extra snaps of the exhaust shroud too.
