Cool, ok, sorry, I didn't know that on the rules.

I was trying to post an image not a URL.
(feel free to delete this post too as I am not trying to up my posts, thought you guys might be interested in my build :) )

No worries... We are just cutting the rear arches to get the wider ones on, so the 11J rears will fit...

After we were happy with the mock up of the new rear wider arches, its was time to make a start with fitting...

Out came the Angle grinder





This is the car lowered back to the floor, as you can see we have plenty of room. This is an 11J rear wheel





The next step will be to make up a lip for the new rear arch to sit on, as well as to join the 2 skins back together...



Lots more to come...

Impressive stuff matey, nice to see you're seriously into cars, I'm sure you'll fit in just fine around here! Welcome aboard and keep us updated with Project Moff!

What's the best mod you've done so far then?

Thanks Guys...

Best Mod bang for buck, must be the brake stopper. So much more feel in the braking system..

Offset is +12 Front and +8 Rear...

Now that we had cut the arches out to allow for more room, we had to weld the 2 skins back together.

This would do a number of things :

Put strength back into the arches
Stop water getting back up into the arches and rusting
Give us a mounting point for the new arches

We started by tacking pices of metal in place.




More info on the blog... Project Moff Blog


Loads more to come...

Hi and welcome

One impressive list. A lot of the stuff I know nothing about, but if it is of the same quality as the Ohlins dampers then I am even more impressed.

Do you have the help of sponsors?

Hiya Tim and welcome to the TC forum. For those who don't know Tim, he breaks and supplies all Skyline parts at very competitive prices. Epic build mate and looking forward to the end result.
Talking supplies haven't got a hard pipe kit for a standard RB26 intercooler ;)

Thanks Andy...




Here are some photos of the new rear arches. Believe it or not, we actually sprayed the rear arches using nothing more than black spray cans... This is only temporary until the car goes in for a respray.

The wheels on the car are spare wheels until the race wheels are fitted..





The Car is now off to Abbey Motorsport in Surrey, who will be putting the car on their Dynapack Dyno, setting up the Suspension and some other Race prep..

Project Moff is now at www.abbeymotorsport.co.uk.

After a quick look over the car, they noticed the exhaust manifold is cracked
and urgently need of repair. Its going to be removed and hopefully welded up.

They are extremely busy, but have managed to find the time for this
additional work, great stuff... :)

More updates soon....

The car is very nearly all set to go on the Dyno in the next day or 2 for a
tweak at Abbey Motorsport on their Dynapack Dyno.

Looking forward to seeing what the car produces...

Should start with a 5 in the BHP figure.. :)

Car looks good mate! Is 600bhp your estimated figure? Or a goal you'd like to achieve?

Here are the dyno results...

The previous time Mark @ Abbey Motorsport had the car on the Dyno, at 1.5 Bar, the car was producing 594 BHP ATH.
We the changes and improvements we made, he managed to bring the boost in a little earlier, and at 1.4 Bar,
we now have 605 BHP ATH, and what should be a more driveable car too...

Here is the Dyno Graph




For the other dyno sheets, and a comparison of the last ones, for you real geeks, please see :
