Chassis hassle

Hi folks, been a while, eh :wink: So something bad has happened; it feels like something's broken. The car now pulls to the right under power, seems to lean more to the right than the left when cornering, and it feels kinda spooky and asymmetrically wrong when I hit big dips or humps at speed (80+)....

So I need a new clutch : /

Back when I resurrected the traffic slicer, I threw a standard clutch in it, which was always a bit marginal; it'd slip some on full boost occasionally. Now I can't give it any stick without slippage, pretty sucky. I don't suppose I can adjust it somehow... the cable isn't too tight, I gather. So, w...

Any coders in the house?

So here's a thought... I got some arduinos (the things are so cheap I grabbed a couple of spares; $2.80 each!) to make an electronic shifting system for one of my bikes, and I've been trying to wrap my head around C++... it's fairly heavy going, but not as bad as I thought it'd be... after a day or ...

My pushies

So I used to read Street Machine back in the day, dreaming about pimping up this car or that, considering all the sweet ways I'd like to showcase my aesthetic... but I've owned a machine worthy of such treatment for ages now, and never really felt compelled; the sheer volume of work and cash require...

Small world

So I was leaving Timmzy's joint after fitting a fresh AFM (and fixing a bunch of air leaks), and as I'm waiting at the lights round the corner from his joint, a truckie goes past and gives me a toot and a wave. He's pulled over on the freeway entrance, so I hop out to say gday, and it's the bloke I ...

SOLVED - Help! Car's had a heart attack

Bah, I'm a dickhead. All this fucking around because I didn't notice that I didn't notice the intake pipe was off the turbo (my AFM is on an elbow and sits near the clutch lever)... was pretty sure I checked for leaks, but come to think of it, that was just after I rolled off the freeway to find a p...

Unfortunately I don't have any spare car bits around anymore, so I can't try swapping stuff out too easily...

What are those usual checks? Rusty, remember ;)

SOLVED - Help! Car's had a heart attack

I'm getting a code 23 and a 31, idle switch and aircon. Doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the switch (it's missing the cover so I can see), but I haven't tested it yet. I removed the A/C, but pretty sure I left the switch on the HVAC controls; I knew it was involved in the diagnostic. Dunno if ...

SOLVED - Help! Car's had a heart attack

So I heard all four injectors ticking away, I guess that's good news. Just to be extra sure I wasn't out of juice (it was running low) I stuck another 5l in, but no difference. A couple of times it ran okay for a few seconds, responding to the throttle even, but then died. After that it'd just momen...

Wait a sec, how do I ensure the dizzy's properly indexed when I re-insert it?

Edit: NM, I gave it a shot and it can only go back on two ways, easy. I'll try the test now...

SOLVED - Help! Car's had a heart attack

Coil or PTU? Take out dissie, connect up, disconnect coil and turn by hand. Are injectors all firing? Rule out a rooted CAS. Oracle Sorry mate, I'm pretty rusty. PTU? So if I remove the dizzy and hook it up and turn it, the injectors are supposed to fire, huh? I suppose I should hear them? I'll giv...

SOLVED - Help! Car's had a heart attack

So I'm a couple of minutes from home the other day, when the Exa almost dies on the freeway... one minute she's running fine, the next I've got a cylinder if I'm lucky. On go the hazards and it takes me ten minutes to limp home. After a day or two I went to start it and it fired and ran for a couple...
