Im Cam and I drive a POS silver over grey hatch. I'm from the launnie area , and I'mpretty easy to spot due to primer patches everywhere.

A new gazelle is in the works but schooling and job setbacks have made it frustratedly slow but thats a story for another day


thought i would give an update on my gazelle!!!

now had s13 coil overs, r31 control arms and castor rods. el falcon shocks in the rear and chopped vn commdoore springs.

car needs new bushes and then the diff is going to be welded.

i brought a CA18DET thats currently in bits in the garage awaiting me to get off my lazy ass and located a cheap VRS kit to replace all the seals an gaskets, ones everything is nice an fresh on the CA18DET its going in the gazelle :D engine made 160rwkw with a bigger turbo, zorst and FMIC as well as a re-tune by dr. drift. :angry: should be fun - thanks to the stimulous package ive got the cash for the VRS kit. theres one in QLD for $150 but im not sure as he hasnt gotten back to me yet and they are about $450 delivered from USA.

nice mate, you should create/update a full build thread with pics etc :angry:

I probably should update me too, the old grey S12 has gone to the yard where it sits waiting to have bits pulled from it lol and i now have a bronze/orange/red/copper (you pick one) sitting on some challengers for the time being, its stock as a rock besides my pod filter but its so much better then my old one its not funny lol just need money to throw at it now

I merged the two threads, should be better now although it was working fine for me anyway.

My update is battery to the boot this weekend along with hard wired fuel pump with relay and shizzle, i have lost half the points on my licence and if i get booked for speeding in the next two years i lose licence instantly.

I also hit a guidepost last night. That was big. My rear passenger wheel was not touching the ground it was hovering over a 2m deep drainage hole next to the side of the road for a split second while i kept up it and momentumed out of it. My front lower trailing arm mount took the hit lol.

Good times, nice post marks up the side.

:-( bugger!!!!

yeah i had to switch to "linear" view to see it propperly...

me and my friend are buying a "spare bits" gazelle from lanny for $200 next month i reckon so u can pillage some bits off that if ur in need... i only want the trailing arms as they have new bushes and he wants the front brakes (slotted R31)

loving my CA18DET conversion tho :D cant wait to get an EXT. fuel pump in there and crank the boost ;)
