  • I've been wanting to get a redtop for the past week, ever since going to the happy laps day. The NA just feels like it's missing something..
    And by something, i mean boost.
    But at $1600 for a complete package including engine, turbo, gearbox and ecu, I can't afford it :c

    My gears also went sticky and second stopped working. I'm not sure if that's the result of the oil heating up or the gears themselves heating up. Either way, i'd like to another gearbox as im pretty sure mine is on it's way out.

    • Just save up and do the whole lot, Levan. You'll enjoy the car so much more.

      Speaking of turbos.. Should have the drift boat home soon.

      • Trust me, I'd love nothing more than to save up but when you earn $100 a week, it gets hard.
        Might just wait till I get a nursing job, hopefully next year.

        • Wow, yeah that's shit then.. Time for a new job? Second job? I'm about to get rid of my 180 as it is to spend more on getting the boat ready.

          • Only reason i'm not bothering with a new job is because i've only got another semester of this degree left so i'll just stick it out.

            • Fair enough man, good luck with it all. This S/R Chassis meet still has to happen one day.. Once mines engineered and registered anyway.

              • Hey guys
                Recently bought my first s-chassis (180) and need some help fixing it up
                Story is: exhaust gasket blew sending flames around the bay, ignitor broke, and some wiring sheathe got a little burned
                All genuine nissan parts were included with receipts


                engine bay as is now:



                this is what i got as a new ignitor:



                so now i need to wire that in and re-connect turbo, oil and water lines, manifold etc





                Would love some help and advice if you have any. Really want to do this right

                Cheers

                  Your gearbox is fuuuucked! Has been for like over a year so I think it's finally biting the dust. Also what oil did you chuck in it? Because anything over GL-4 will dissolve your syncros.
