    hey all, I’ve been MIA for ages I feel, anyway dunno if it’s already been mentioned or not, but I was just going up Hobson street and noticed there seems to be a speed camera on the right hand side now?

    I figured you could always argue that it wouldn't be safe to stop for the fact you could be rear ended or slamming on the brakes could be considered dangerous for me or whatever/whoever inside the car.. or something along those lines anyway

    I managed to do 1300km over the weekend going to welly and back. Had a 3km detection on the desert road, he was using IO so I thought that was pretty sweet. Had the odd occasional one along the way elswhere.. also got stuck 2 cars behind a cop with a suzuki swift up my ass. Bet they instantly...

    :O oh shit you’ve had your fair few of them! Did you ever go to any meets? I feel like 4wd Nissan’s get a bit bashed in the community because you can’t skid them, but damn I’d take a 4wd Stagea over a RWD one. I looked at buying a TT 300ZX but decided against it for some reason, was a year or...

    When I first was going to do my hardwire I planned on just tapping the ignition off my sunroof switch and then grounding it at that nearby point so the cable could be very short but then I got lazy and ran outta time so just bought one of the prewired kits off trademe which ya just slot into the...

    Oh the joys of working on new cars with van is etc haha. Every car I’ve owned has had mangled radio harnesses that I’ve had to extend/repair. Even in my current Stagea the person who installed the alarm bloody twist and taped the wires together and I had one of the ignition wires come undone and...

    I’m an apprentice sparky and sometimes I just get elsewhere to install things in my car even though I know it like the back of my hand but sometimes I just feel it’s not worth my time lol

    I'm thinking ill definitely want to get a front and rear cam.. too many sketch drivers out there I'd presume you can get some that have video outputs too? would be cool to have them running to my headunit ;) already have my reverse cam wired to ignition so I can switch to it while i'm driving...

    Nah I wish it was a 260! Mines a RS-V, 25DET RWD. Manual converted too :D I'm tall enough to have the seat almost the whole way back haha, they're certainly large in the boot area.. can sleep comfortably in them with the rear seats folded flat. Looking at the images on google the newer style...

    Oh nice thats not too pricey at all. Haven't been in a Wish before but a guy at work has a Honda Airwave with a bodykit on it (The typical Japanese totally out there type kit) but not gonna lie it looks pretty damn sweet. My wagon's pretty big in the boot but has the same floor pan of a R33...

    Nice, I should've done that and made my own considering we have all the gear at work but I decided I was lazy and just bought one off trademe for $30 haha. Hey now, nothing wrong with a wagon :D The more I think about it my wagon sucks for gas and I should've kept my cheap Golf oh well. No one...

    Great choice, I love mine.. much more than the redline ex I had. Hardwiring is definitely the way to go, mines nicely hidden now. What vehicle are you gonna be running it in?
