Lamborghini Driving Experience at the Race Track


Lamborghini Driving Experience
This video clip comes from a local Volvo fan who had the chance recently, to have the real deal Lamborghini driving experience at the race track, Autodrome st. Eustache. Taking the car up to speeds in excess of 180 km/hr, it was his first time driving the All Wheel Drive Lambo doing 3 laps around the track.
The drivers were given the choice between an Audi R8, a Ferrari or this Lamborghini, once the drivers selected their car, they were given a brief introduction to the track and safety guidelines, as well as shifting using the paddle system.

Nissan Skyline GTR Engine Oil Pump Replacement Solution


Here is a novel solution to the Nissan Skyline Oil Pump Problem from Supertec Racing, based on the Spline drive oil pump from the Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE motor, these guys have built a set of gears that will work with pretty much any RB oil pump out there. Including the Tomei, Jun, N1 77mm and OE Nissan 81mm oil pumps.
Spline Drive N1 Stock Jun and Tomei RB Oil Pumps
Supertec mentioned having supplied seven sets of these gears so far to customers that have been running them now for a few months, using them in drag racing engines like the RB26 and RB30 where some engines are producing in excess of 900 BHP and revving to 10k RPM as well as using launch control - zero issues have been reported yet.
Damaged Stock Nissan Oil Pump Drive
You'll recall the big killer of the stock oil pump on the Skyline is precisely hard rev limiter slams on the narrow contact patch - it's easy to see how a spline drive would solve this problem very effectively when considering, that with the splines you pretty much get contact of all splines equally distributing the force and you have the oil film between the splines as a damper as well. In most cases there are no issues with alignment during installation, you fit the pump to the block just like you would with an oem pump.

Supertec Racing is a registered trader on GTR.co.uk and has 100% positive feedback so far, you can reach them through register or on the Supertec Facebook page.

Although they are not the first to try to solve this problem, Spool Imports has a Spline Drive Oil Pump solution as well, and the results of another forum members attempt to create a similar spline drive oil pump resulted in a number of issues discussed here - Supertec does seem to be having reported success with their solution so far.
Spline Drive Oil Pump on Nissan RB Crank Shaft
Below is the explanation of how this solution came to be, followed by the Splined Drive Gears Installation Manual from Supertec for the RB Engine.

"First of all I must say a big thank you, because if it wasn't for your article I would not have thought about the seriousness of the issue with the clearances on flat drives and tolerances between gears. I initially purchased a new R33/34 wide drive crank and some Reimax N1 gears and measured the clearances which were shocking 0.017 each side and very wobbly. Also the old OE Nissan pump which I took off and the narrow crank the actual contact points 3/16th looked very scary. Myself and a colleague took it upon ourselves to develop a spline drive solution based on what is used in a Toyota 2JZ-GTE engine a more robust solution."

1. Collar installation on to the crankshaft
Warning: before turning works, make sure the crankshaft lies in the workroom for at least 2 hours in order for it to be of the same temperature as the workroom. The collar and crankshaft measurement procedure must be performed at around 20°C temperature.

SPOTTED: Gulf Racing Ford GT40 on Highway


Gulf Racing Ford GT40
I was rolling down the highway when suddenly this Gulf Racing Ford GT40 ripped past me. The car is definitely full of genuine Ford GT power, but I think most likely the paint is a replica of the original Gulf Racing Ford GT40. These cars are a real thing of beauty to see in person, especially going flat out on the highway! Check out this story from when we got Really up Close with a Beautiful Ford GT from The Art Collection.

The 700 WHP Mitsubishi Evo that'll Wipe that Smirk Right Off your Face


Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 700 whp Wheel Horse Power
Now here's a prime example of passion driving dedication to produce a build of exquisite caliber and quality. From a story that no doubt, many of you can relate to in your own way of striving to complete a goal in the face of adversity, along with that oh so familiar feeling of wanting, Just a little more power... Take a minute to check out the story behind Jay Dao's Mitsubishi Evo and enjoy while you momentarily live vicariously through the thought of what, 700 wheel horse power really feels like in an all wheel drive car, as light as that.

"I got the car when I came back from deployment back in 06. When I first started modding, I always wanted to wipe the smirk off people's faces thinking their car was fast lol. Now as I get older, its more of a goal in life to finish something I started. To me it's more engine porn than horsepower. Looking at all the welds, time spent planning and building. Once it all comes together it's like a movie that was filmed and now everyone gets to enjoy it."

Jay and his sister were raised by their Mother, in a setting where due to circumstances beyond their control, the father was not supportive and fostered negativity in a bad environment and projected impending doom and failure without him. Needless to say, Jay (now a Software Engineer) and his Sister (a Biochemist) have actually done quite well for themselves! Jay has been saving up and buying parts for the last six years for this build, which he has been patiently awaiting the completion of for a long time coming.

"I did what everyone should never do. I made an excel sheet of what everything cost + the car. I think I'm at around 70k usd or so. Not too bad over 6 years. At one point I debated on selling everything off and just saving money. After some consideration and talking to fellow big build owners, I decided to just finish it up or I would regret it."

This is a bold strategy and one that I can tell you leads to immense happiness upon completion, the classic "All-in" on your dream goals, hard work never leaves you feeling disappointed.

"As much as I would like to say I race competitively, its more of a street car... I will be taking it to events and shows... In a Japanese car, I can't tell you how many times people have egged me on to launch it but don't get very many street races. They just look at the car... but one time I've had a r6 with his group of friends egg me on. I can say that I put about 5 car lengths on him on the free way."

The Power: "The motor is going back in this week with the forward facing manifold. The last car with a smaller turbo made 670whp. I should be over 700. It's going to be a built 2.0L on a Forward facing twin scroll T4 6265. My old turbo manifold was a twin scroll and I had 2 wastegates lol. 30 to 35 psi. Ecu controlled boost controller via gm 3 port."
