  1. So i herd back from him and got my tracking number and so on so my 2nd order of parts is coming. 

    I advised him of this thread to say make contract with you as i did not know your insta/facebook. i suggest maybe you contact him and just simply start threatening him with posting all this up around social media. 

    i have a tourerv.ru account (Russian JZX forum) i might be able to get you on there and start advising russians that he is not helpful, they have a whole thread on bad traders so are open to hearing bad situations.

    Figured I’d ask if anyone knew the f+r motion ratios for the x8 chassis. Don’t want to have to actually measure if someone here happens to know. I know most don’t care and just run the 12k 8k springs that come on off the shelf coilovers. I’m gonna rebuild some coilovers with Bilstein pistons and valving to suit the springs I end up picking. I’m gonna have to measure  unsprung weight at some point so if no one knows the motion ratios I’ll post them here when I get around to measuring them. 

    Contact Shockworks and see if Chris will provide, he built JZX81 Strut's  off a stock car and took all the measurements to produce there off the shelf kit. he might not help but no harm in asking.

    Robaphent, you're just thinking about molding a stock mx83 hood? Why go to all the trouble, just to save weight? I would keep my stock hood, but it doesn't work with the jzx81 lights and grill, hence why I ordered from him. 

    I have JZX81 mark 2, was going to mould the stock hood because by doing so i could modify the top skin to suit any vents i wanted when i wanted. 
    e.g DMAX Style vent, Freedom style Vent, BN Sports Vent, Msports twin vent. just mix and match styles. 


    I dont do much Cressida stuff anymore as i was always spending time doing stuff for a car i dont have, so i can to borrow cars to trail fit and then i would make an item and i could not use it on my own car so i would have to then try and sell it to then get examples of it. just a head ache

    Lol seriously... I will admit, I asked him for a jzx81 hood, which he only produced once quite a while ago. He's produced lots of the fenders though.

    It's obvious he's producing his products not in the order the orders were placed. 

    Looks like all I can do is wait 🙁

    I need to buy a bonnet from him, but in saying that i do have a bonnet here i could mold i'm just getting lazy in regards to producing a mould and spending huge amount of money for something i could buy.

    So, you condone fly by night suppliers, who scam some people out of their hard earned money.

    Typical aussie, don't give a fuck about anyone else, as long as he get's his shit.

    Wonder how much your scamming the local blokes for this Russian shit?

    Ok Boomer. 

    @BoristheCat i ordered these Mid September and it took 12 weeks for them to manufacture (he advised me this at the start) i was provided tracking number it spent about 2 weeks at Mosco customs and from there it was straight forward. i got the items just before XMAS.  i ordered my JZX81 items just before XMAS he had them made and ready to be shipped with tracking number last week however have spent a week at the post office.

    So I fucking missed one out of three.......

    Picture: Kind of helps stop fuckery, it's not like no one has ever got fucked on this site.......
    (also is just plain courteous, and makes good business sense)

    Location: Helps eliminate mystery factor.

    Supra Forums used to have a great for sale set of rules that cut way down on fuckery:
    Min 50 posts (hard to do here, since few newbs make half that before they bail on an X-chassis)
    Real Name
    Price (He met 1, wow....)
    Contact info

    Maybe I'll just start making posts in this section with a title 'Cressida Part - $100', then never reply to any info requests.

    or just leave the forum you grumpy cunt.

  7. Anyway, thought i would make a build thread for the car i'm currently working on.


    Goal of this car is pretty much a fuck around street/drift car.


    so i purchased this car from Tassie sight unseen after what was described as interior is complete, and damaged repaired, had it shipped over and friend picked it up and the 1st msg I got was "do you know the condition of this car" lol so hopes had been smashed a little.

    The car was very cheap even after postage and well people who know JZX81's know there is only a handful in the country so i was ok with it i guess.

    As you can see in the pictures just about every panel on the car has issue's, the front rad support is fucked, strut rail passenger side fucked, dash items are all cracked or have holes in them. wires chopped just about everywhere and random shit missing.  holes drilled into floor for battery and fire extinguisher, seats missing, seatbelts missing, just about everything LOL.












    i never had huge plans for this car, was going to turn it into the race car but i already have another JZX81 with weld in cage, tubbed front, etc so returning that one to stock seemed like more work than to just fix this one. so, I started the repair process.

    Purchased wreck with brown trim with intention of using rad support and so on.



    Purchased some seat's



    and started the process of putting this car back together





    Purchased an Alpine head unit was on sale and double din and only $150 so jumped on it and it’s not like I need features it’s not a daily. Contacted friends and asked what parts they had available and got front bumper, found a spare headlight in my stash of parts and have purchased front indicator's and a RH side headlight to complete all the lights. I have guards although flared i will probably run them.


    Engine wise it will get just about everything from my "race car JZX81"


    so HKS built 1JZ, Radiator, intercooler, GT3240 etc. I will post pictures up of it when i finishing putting the pulley kit and DBW swap on it.


    so overall, i hate the car and don’t mind denting it and so on as it will pretty much be a practice car and getting scrap parts i have had in storage over the years and will be the test mule for the race car.


    lesson learnt, don’t buy a car sight unseen LOL.

  8. So small update, 

    Purchased some front bilstien coilovers with FD RX7 brake's for the car, so hopefully it should handle semi decent and stop on a dime. 


    Found an X4 rear diff mount and purchased it to see how far off it would be from fitting. 

    Here is picture vs MA61 mount 


    Mount wise it looks like just some threaded bungs welded in and it would fix the issue, however not 100% sure as the old custom welded in mount was still in place. so i will remove that and have a fresh look when i have some time. 


    Also got a delivery of the water pump and other little bit's, so i can finally finish the engine and put it all together ready to drop in. 

    Here is a random picture of my two bulldogs lol

    Why would he waste time always checking in on a forum that has <10 active users? Looks like he has no problem slanging tons of products on FB and IG. 

    I imagine it's undesirable to sell products to people who think they can make your product better than you?

    SHHHH the old man still thinks this place is relevant.

    I don't know if you remember the JZXP tradition, but we don't hold hands, and don't give everyone a trophy just for posting.

    If you have a problem with that, maybe you should report me, or move on.

    It seems you have a problem with him not posting though, bit of a contradiction to your  comment of report or move on? 

  11. Ok found the pictures 

    Stock fuel tank, but with dual pump's in Matt L's car 


    My setup, (might still go this route in new build) not sure why i had the smaller cell, the plan was to use it as a surge tank with dual intake pump's then i was like NAH CBF and purchased the in cell surge setup and had a 044 in it. 


    then i sold my Cell and it went into this JZX100 FD car,  Power vehicles build for Australia FD, as you can see it is mounted directly over the sub frame if i was to do things again i would probobly do something like this as well. but with the radium intake setup witch is now what all the power vehicles use.
