I run one twice as big as that, and not even boosted.

 

With those temps, I'd be running 20w50.

Unless you are running the car with ambient temps constantly dropping way below freezing, like into the negative 30 range, there is no reason to run anything that the first number is a '5'.

With a boosted engine, I'd run something with the hot number in the 60 range.

Had another private day, this time at Evergreen with another group of friends from Hawaii.  It was a blast!!  Car held together again and I really didn't hold back it was pretty awesome to not be scared every time you hammer the gears.

 

I'll get around to uploading the videos at some point in the next week.  But heres some photos from the day (not a single photo was taken by me haha) :

This year was a pretty good year despite the jz car being down for the majority of it.  V8 car has made 11 events now, 2 of which where 4 hour non stop driving sessions with multiple drivers.   Not a single issue,  aluminum plate W still hanging in there (knock on wood.) I'm starting to not want to part ways with it haha


 

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?

If you do kill the aluminum center, I've got a nice one, just freshened up, with an Ikeya sequential shifter.

Gotta love a reliable X-chassis car! 👌

Gordon, parting ways with the ikeya already? Did you ever even drive with it?

Won't fit my HPI 6-speed...

Already have one to fit the new trans.

But I may not sell the shifter, as I may be transplanting a 240SX 5-speed into my old Datsun, after blowing up the 280Z trans that was in it Monday. Guessing just a few too many clutch dumps...

 

All I have to do is use the old L-series front case, bore the main bearing pocket to take the larger/later front bearing, and it bolts right onto the later 71C trans, that the Ikeya was made for.

Since he posted one, here's some other clips from that Monday:

(I can't figure out why it stops embedding after 2)

 

It's actually pretty interesting to look back at all the clips, I definitely see areas on where I can improve, that on top of possibly entering grassroots next year should be pretty fun/ a good learning experience.  I'm sure getting rid of the static .5 degrees of toe in I have on each arm right now will help.  Also I can not wait to get the welded 4.3 out of this car.  I was running out of 2nd in a lot of places that I didn't before.  Just need to figure out if I want 4.1 again or go down to 3.9. I definitely want to try and find a new R&P because I've never owned a quiet (whine free) diff before despite having them setup at differential shops.  

 

I have a ever growing list of little things to tackle this rainy season.  Hopefully once I work through it I will truly be stoked about the car... Until I put it into a wall haha

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

Just a tip if anyone is planning on buying the x7/x8 FLCAs from XM, see if they can sell them to you without the heims.  The inners on both my arms only lasted about 400-500 miles.   With Rue's help I was able to source some higher quality ones, downside is they end up costing pretty much the price of the whole shebang from XM

Now just need to find the motivation to get out there and install them, so I can finally take my car to the fab shop for the hopefully last time.  Heres two unrelated shitpost pictures to motivate myself to drill the holes for the sides.

what size oil cooler lines you running?

i think both the toyotas run -10 on mine and the s13 has lol -6...this is if i can remember right. one of my cars has -10...just cant remember now.

the supra and cressida both have coolers with gauges and both are in the 80-90C range when hot lapping. during traffic, oil is at 70C.

i used 10w30 amsoil signature series synthetic in the x8 and whatever cheap pennzoil/castrol/valvoline oil thats on sale at wal mart or canadian tire. same results.

cheap oil goes black way quicker, but thats about it. thats a 13 dollar oil change vs a 40/50 dollar one mind you lol. all the same k&n oil filters.

those coolers are in a crash zone to me :/ spooks me out.

If I'm crashing my car head on, the coolers are near the bottom of the list of things I'll be sad to damage haha.

 

But ya my oil cooler lines are -10.  It's probably a combination of everything everyone has mentioned too thin of oil (tooner and gordo agree), too small of a cooler (not really in the optimal airflow place im sure baffling might help?), me holding redline for 45-50 seconds at a time almost nonstop. At first it was double that going 2 laps without stopping.  Also I'm fairly sure my compression ratio falls between 9.5:1-9.8:1 (which might honestly be a large contributing factor too).

 

I haven't really looked at the logs yet but, the oil didn't get past 225 at the last event we went (15-25 second laps at evergreen) on the same oil haha whoops. Surprisingly the coolant temps didn't get much past 205-210.

 

My oil sandwich plate doesn't even open until 176F/80C so the only time I probably see 70C is during warmup.  But to be honest I've never really monitored oil temp until that last event, I usually have my gauge set to oil pressure, and boost (for hotboi reasons.) Usually switch from boost to watertemp at the track.   I'm also not sure how much ambient air temps play a roll, the first track day I had the oil heating problems it was 90+F/32c
