    I Ordered a clutch, Really didn't wanna spend $600 on a clutch for a $300 car but with all the fun I had chopping people on the street in it I decided it was for the best.
    While waiting for the clutch I started cutting some more snipped some wires from the dash which mad somewhat of a click noise. Tested to see if it still ran and it was dead. Had blown a fuse so I replaced it and still didn't fire. I put back all wires I cut and still no luck.

    You should cut all the bonnet and boot frames out, and the door internals.. Plastic windows too?? Big weight saving you got already.

    Make a simple cage to stop it bending like a banana, and delete the whole body from chassis up. It's gotta go quick then.

    don't forget the impact braces in the bumpers. They were about 15kg each on the VN.

    Blew up the diff. Haha got one run full weight and stuffed the launch wheel spin and shaking and shit drove it through to a 15.0 I had to drive the ring off the last one to get that in full weight. Atleast I have spare diff there will throw in soon and head back out to get a better full weight run. I dunno if I'll cut this one up.might mod it and go over budget but who cares it's good fun thrashing magnas

    Nice work. My 3.5 TJ Sports did 15.2 at 147 ks when I got really bored one night and took it down the strip.

    Since it's my daily, will leave the self harm stuff to you and watch with mild interest. My standard plan to get one of these into the 13's involves around $500 for cheap 125 HP nawse kit. Should do it nicely then. But that be cheating.

    Good stuff, this gives me a hard on.

    They hook up much better with a heap of rear spring e.g 400lbs or more can net you the likes of 1.8 60 footers.

    ~15.0@150km/hr is on the money for a stocker manual.

    I'd get your hands on a 380 motor, gutted magna should be able to hit 13's if a fully weighted open diffed one can do 14.2 @ 158

    How many burnouts did you do?

    Lay off the burnouts/stupid amounts of axle tramp and the fagna open diff should hold

    Its all back together now. Just got to change an engine mount. Should have checked it prior to thrashing the amount of movement there cant be good for driveline.

    I'm going to hold off cutting the new one up. Probably go a little over budget modding it but I'll start with the cheap stuff and see how close to a 13 I can get it.
